Giving It Up ★½ Casanova Falling 1999 (R)

Bland and predictable romantic comedy. Successful New York ad exec Ralph (Feuerstein) is a sexaholic. This pleases his boss Jonathan (Coleman) since it seems to enhance Ralph's work but makes him a pariah to his female co-workers. He meets his match in sophisticated Elizabeth (Redford) and decides to change his horn dog ways for true love. Only Ralph slips when he gets a chance with supermodel Amber (Larter). It ain't pretty when Liz finds out. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Mark Feuerstein, Dabney Coleman, Ali Larter, Amy Redford, Callie (Calliope) Thorne, James Toback; D: Christopher Kublan; W: Christopher Kublan; C: Leland Krane.
