Love & Sex

Love & Sex ★★½ 2000

Famke Janssen shines in her role as Kate, a manic L.A. magazine writer who nearly gets fired due to her inability to write about good relationships because she hasn't had many. She begins to remember fondly her relationship with Adam (Favreau), a doughy artist whose fast talk made up for his slow looks. Their relationship is traced from its initial spark to its last gasp, when Adam breaks up with Kate due to a feeling of complacency. Kate then attempts to make Adam jealous by dating a string of prettyboy losers, including his favorite actor. Kate becomes increasingly depressed and Adam becomes increasingly obsessed, setting the stage for the inevitable happy ending. Good performances and chemistry between the lead actors saves this indie effort from feeling like a really long sitcom episode. 82m/C VHS, DVD . Famke Janssen, Jon Favreau, Noah Emmerich, Ann Magnuson, Cheri Oteri, Josh Hopkins, Robert Knepper, Vincent Ventresca; D: Valerie Breiman; W: Valerie Breiman; C: Adam Kane.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
