Lovewrecked (2005)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Film: D



Randal Kleiser, the director of Grease, has not been able to repeat that success since.  Unfortunately, Lovewrecked (2005) is a very wrecked film about pop star obsessed Jenny (Amanda Bynes) who will do anything to be the singing idol (Chris Carmack) no matter how unlikely that seems.  When they get together and seem stranded on an island when they are only on the other side of a resort, something she is not going to let him know about.


This idiot plot bubblegum project could have been at least mildly entertaining, but I was shocked at how bad Stephen Langford’s screenplay is.  This has some of the worst dialogue ever and a quick comparison to the Hugh Grant/Drew Barrymore film Music & Lyrics with its own male pop idol obsession is so much better and it barely had a script.  That was still better than this, because at least that had funny moments.


Even Fred Willard could not save this and Lance Bass showing up did not give it one bit of bubblegum credibility.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image is only sometimes colorful, never very detailed, has limited depth and is not memorable.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is surprisingly limited in surrounds for a film feigning a love for Pop music, combining to make for a TV movie feel.  There are no extras, as enough is enough.
