Leo says: This film was quite good, it had a good and somewhat twisted story, interesting cheractores and decent acting. I do beleive that it could have been better if they had a better directore but I do recomend it, just not for the squeemish there are a few brutal and slightly disturbing scenes.

The Breakup Artist (Date changed, sorry!)
Plot outline:
A romantic comedy that takes a rare look at romance and relationships from a decidely different angle...the unapologetic male point of view. The Breakup Artist is a no-holds-barred, soul-baring look at one man's struggles with life, love and his unending quest to find a woman he can stay with...for longer than six months. Before the Breakup Artist can learn from the troubled romantic ruins of his past...he must overcome the one debilitating dating disorder that has addled him all of his life...RADD (Romantic Attention Deficit Disorder)!

Leo says: Keep in mind that the box art we will have in our store looks like a pathetic mainstream atempt at something lame. However the reviews are almost all good on this one.
