The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
THE FORMULA is the story of Quinn and Graham, two engineering students who discover a mathematical formula to pick up women with ease. Quinn is the hopeless romantic who falls head over heels for T.J., a pretty student teacher, while Graham is a chauvinistic womanizer who makes it his mission to bed as many co-eds as possible. As Quinn and Graham test their "formula," moving from one date to the next, they discover that there is no shortcut to finding true love.
"The Formula" tells the tale of Quinn and Graham, neither can get the relationship thing right. But since they are both engineering students they work out a formula that will allow them to get any woman they want. At first it seems to work well but as time goes on they begin to realize that finding true love is not a by the numbers thing.
First off I have to say that the DVD art work might be a bit deceiving for some. I went off the cover art thinking this was going to be another brainless "American Pie" type of comedy with lots of nudity and raunchy jokes but I was pleasantly surprised to find something very different here.
Now do not get me wrong here, the film has the sex jokes and fart jokes we come to expect from a comedy such as this but it also delivers on some messages about relationships between males and females so it does tend to get a little romantic and even touching at times, especially towards the end. Lump all that together and add a cast that can really deliver and you got yourself one highly entertaining romantic comedy.
Mike Schminke and Brandon Baker were both amazing as Graham and Quinn but for me it was Tyler Thirnbeck who stole every scene he was in as Lee, their roommate. Tyler had some of the best lines in the film and was the most outrageous character in the film. The rest of the cast all did a fantastic job playing their roles as well.
"The Formula" is a very funny and well-written comedy with a touch of heart that separates it from other films like it and makes it a real winner in every way. The film is available now on DVD, you can order it HERE.
