Love Bites (1999) Online

Over a lunch of crab in the shell, Ian listens to Barrett complain that Kaylie, Barrett's girlfriend, is being unfaithful. The proof: a partially-eaten hamburger (she's a vegetarian) and a want ad she's running for a male roommate. Ian defends her. Cut to Kaylie in her apartment, interviewing Derek, a ringer Barrett has sent to answer the ad, try to seduce Kaylie, and see if she's cheating on him. It's not sex, however, that Kaylie has in mind. A few minutes later, Barrett barges in hoping to catch her red handed. Will Barrett figure out what's really going on? When Ian arrives moments later, do Barrett's chances look better or worse? And what's in that stroganoff? {locallinks-homepage}

User reviews



Perhaps my ambivalence about this short film might be because the DVD collection which contains this film is a rather soul-less and dreary collection. Also, it is quite possible that the dark sense of humor in this short might appeal to you a lot more than it did to me. The film is one that I liked parts of but the whole left me a bit cold--especially since the ending seemed incomplete.

An annoying guy is having lunch with a friend while he talks about why his girlfriend MUST be cheating on him. So, to find out the truth, he sent a friend over to the house to try to seduce her--to prove whether or not she's seeing other men on the side. However, this friend (who, by the way was a great character) gets much, much more than he bargained for, as this girlfriend has a much darker secret.

Later, when the annoying boyfriend comes to his girlfriend's house, some part of this strange mystery becomes more clear to the audience. It's all clever but also a bit unpleasant and left me flat. However, the acting was very good and the folks who made this seemed to have talent and quite an imagination.
