What Love Looks Like

Release Date: January 19, 2020

Run Time: 1 hour & 28 minutes

Reviewed By: Adam

Five interwoven stories of modern love. Nicole (Kate Durocher) is a vibrant young beauty stuck in dead-end relationship with Owen (Josh Gilmer), a man who’s more in love with his phone than he is with her. Calvin (Connor Wilkins) has a disastrous Tinder-fueled one night stand with Summer (Jamie Shelnitz) only to reconnect with her on an anonymous dating site soon after. Finn (Kyle Meck) is crazy about the lovely Penelope (Taylor Alexa Frank)… only the timing couldn’t be worse. Theodore (Jack Menzies) is a painfully awkward young man who’s smitten with equally shy Bailey (Ana Ming Bostwick Singer). Finally, Sam (Nathan Kohnen) is still reeling from the death of his wife when he meets Evie (Ashley Rose McKenna), who just may be the girl to reawaken his heart if he can let his past go.

A guilty pleasure of mine has always been the rom com.

I will say, the trailer doesn’t do What Love Looks Like any justice. It made it seem super goofy and corny. It did end up being a little goofy and corny, but not as bad as the trailer made it look.

I really enjoyed the story lines… some of which tug at your heart and some of which reminded me of myself. I couldn’t help but to root for some of the characters along the way.

What Love Looks Like won’t be winning an Oscar anytime soon and it’s filled with a ton of clichés, but I had a lot of fun watching. It’s perfect for a date night. Snuggle up on the couch with some wine and enjoy this heartwarming movie.

What Love Looks Like is currently streaming for FREE on Amazon Prime Video and Tubi.
