Playing It Cool

One must have watched so many rom coms (romantic comedy) that at one point of time that you can actually guess what will happen in the next scene. 

That may make you think that you have the potential of becoming a scriptwriter but no. It’s just the same old formula is used repeatedly with lack of any of innovative ideas/writing coming up.

Playing it cool is one such movie though a different approach has been taken the story goes through the cliché wherein the guy does not believe in love until he falls in one and that he has a hard time accepting it.

The movie is directed by Justin Reardon and written by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair. It stars  Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Patrick Warburton, Ashley Tisdale, Ioan Gruffudd,Topher Grace and Giovanni Ribisi.

The movie is about a writer who is told to write a romantic movie but struggles with it. His mom abandonment is the reason behind his failed relationship. 

His necessity to write a romantic is shown through the stories of his friends who incidentally are also writers/poets, etc. and later on he falls in love with a girl who is engaged to get married.

There is nothing much new over here and Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan do their job quite well supported by other cast.

The script lacked the depth that could have turned this movie around. Instead they choose to go with which we have already seen in earlier rom com movies.

The movie is a one-time watch.
