Story: Heavy Duty Lovers starts as we meet Lou (Pizarro) a LA attorney that is excellent at his job, but he does enjoy his food, with his wife, boss Mr Peters (Roberts) and co-workers questioning his weight. Elena (Blok) is a tour guide in Mexico who is also suffering from the same pressure that Lou does, with both seeing their relationships falling apart.

When Lou’s daughter and Elena’s friend set up accounts on the dating website Heavy Duty Lovers, the pair reluctantly agree to talk and get to know each other, falling in love over their fondness of food.

Thoughts on Heavy Duty Lovers

ThoughtsHeavy Duty Lovers follows two people who enjoy their food that have seen their lives suffer because of the people around them, be it partners, co-workers or even boss, despite having a friend around them that will support their kind-nature. They need to find love, like anyone, which will see them turning to a dating site, that will offer them a chance to fall in love with a like-minded people. The characters that are mean towards the pair, are the type of people they don’t need in their lives, because they are good people that just want a good life. The performances from the two leads are strong throughout, but when we get into the supporting roles, some of them don’t hit the same standards as the leading pair. It does have an important message about treating people equal no matter what they look like. The twin locations show us the busy life in LA compared to the more relaxed life in Mexico, even though it is a tourist style visit. The film does use film references that will play into the comedy, as the quotes are ones we are all meant to know.

 

Heavy Duty Lovers is a fun romantic comedy that will get the laughs and carries a big heart.

Edge of Tomorrow

Why I’ve Picked this choiceEdge of Tomorrow follows a media relation military major Cage (Tom Cruise) that gets thrown into the front line of the war against an alien species that is dominating the war, only he dies. Cage wakes up the day before, finding himself knowing what will happen in the battle, trying to explain this to people, he finds himself making enemies until he meets the super soldier Rita (Emily Blunt). Rita also experienced the same experience and helps Cage learn to lead the fight to win the war once and for all.

This is a big sci-fi action film that isn’t afraid to show us the brutal death scenes, adds humour to what is happening, despite the brutality of them. This is a film that under performed at the box office, but people talk about know as one of the best modern-day sci-fi movies.

It has become one of the films that is easy to watch, made Emily Blunt a true action star and is one that we could get a sequel out of one day, one that we deserve a sequel too.
