Jon Favreau and Famke Janssen star in this slick indie film about love, romance, and jealousy. Kate (Janssen) almost gets fired from her posh magazine job when she submits an overly graphic, overly personal article on oral sex. As she rewrites her piece, she reminisces on her past flames, particularly on her most serious relationship -- with Adam (Favreau), a fast-talking, very neurotic painter. The film traces their romance from their initial heady meeting, to moving in together, to an unexpected pregnancy, and the inevitable breakup because Adam felt trapped.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's tough to watch immediately likable actors endure such a mercilessly dull screenplay."
‑ Paul Tatara,
"This romantic comedy presents a sassy overview of sexual politics where men and women expect so much of each other."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The strengths of the screenplay don't translate to the screen. Well-written one-liners lie dead, killed by the lax timing. Everyone tries so hard to be ingratiating and witty that the charm curdles into smarm."
‑ Gary Mairs,
"Scenes seem designed more for cuteness than believability. And never is the chemistry between Adam and Kate genuine, which is the kiss of death for a romantic comedy."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Like love and sex, this film is pretty hard to resist."
‑ Leah Beth Reisman, Citysearch
"This one tastes like a sour apple I had on a blind date many eons ago."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A simple, pleasing romantic comedy with a sharp tongue and a soft heart."
‑ , E! Online
"Already burdened by Kate's clichéd voice-over observations, the movie eventually sinks beneath the weight of Kate and Adam's utter charmlessness, a huge liability in bickering romantic-comedy couples."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Love & Sex is capable of making even the most cynical Gen-Xer watch with an involuntary smile."
‑ Eric Gordon, IFilm
"Refreshing depiction of today's dating game does for single women what Swingers did for single men."
‑ Tor Thorsen,
"By no means a great film, but a zippy little comedy with a lively pace and a nice supply of laughs -- and occasional moments of genuine feeling."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"An insufferably dull retracing of romantic comedy's steps, with none of the relationship insight or genuine humanness that can make the formula such a joyful one to follow."
‑ David Luty, Film Journal International
"Wait until it hits cable."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Aren't Annie Hall calibre, but they are remarkably more recognizably human than what passes for most movie romantic comedy."
‑ Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
