Funny Valentine ★ 2005 (R)

Josh (Hall) is having trouble with New York's singles scene so his buddies Tim (Lord Jamar) and Sean (Martin) offer dating advice, including placing a personal ad and vetting the responses. Embittered single mom Doreen (Marron) is not one of their choices but Josh decides to follow his heart. A romantic comedy that's weak on both the romance and the comedy. There is a lot of unwarranted semi-nudity that is more appropriate to softcore porn. 90m/C DVD . Anthony Michael Hall, Marlo Marron, Ivan Martin, Larry Storch, Lord Jamar; D: Jeff Oppenheim; W: Jeff Oppenheim; C: Stephen Treadway; M: Greg Arnold. VIDEO
