The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: C. THOMAS HOWELL, CHANDLER RYLKO, NAJARRA TOWNSEND, CASSIDY GARD, BENJAMIN SEAY, JEREMY RADIN, ARIS ALVARADO, JOEL & JOSEPH HAROLD
An innocent college couple unknowingly become involved in their Professor’s illicit research into the manipulation of love and his recreation of the elusive “Cupid’s Arrow”.
Everyone is hit with cupid's arrow at some point in their lives but Director, Dan Peterson takes the theme and injects a twist to it and in turn creates a very different yet entertaining look at love and what some people will do to experience it. The film focuses on a college couple, Alan and Sam who have a good thing going, enter Professor Grimes who has found a way to clone cupid's arrow and out it in a bottle. When Sam decides to join his "research" team she unwillingly falls victim to the Professor's plan to use the formula for his own personal gain. Now it's up to Alan with a little help from his friends to foil the Professor's plans and get his girlfriend back before it's too late.
"Cupid's Arrow" is a comedy/romance at heart but it also has a bit of a dark edge to it as well which is what makes it not only original but much more entertaining as well. To talk about the edge the film has here would only ruin it for those waiting to see it but I can tell you it was something I never expecting, what I did expect was a light comedy which the film is but I was surprised to see a bit of a mood change towards the end of the movie and to me it really made the film that much better.
The entire cast did a terrific job but the stand-out performances belong to the C. Thomas Howell as the Professor and the young couple played by Najarra Townsend and Chandler Rylko. A well written, funny and fast paced comedy that provides plenty of laughs, sexiness and a bit of nastiness as well.
If you're a fan of the genre or one of the many C. Thomas Howell fans out there then I highly recommend checking this one out. It's another little Indie gem that you never heard of but are sure glad you discovered. Osiris Entertainment does an amazing job at finding entertaining films will this and in almost every genre.
All involved in making "Cupid's Arrow" deserve a lot of credit for being part of a comedy that isn't afraid of being different while still providing enough entertainment to please all fans of the genre. A fast paced comedy that had me laughing throughout and smiling long after it was over.
The DVD comes with Special Features that include:
The Science of Love
