Verdict on Bad Romance

Bad Romance is a neo-noir romantic comedy following a lonely man searching for his wife’s killer. As the man goes in search of answers, he starts making new friends and learning more about himself along the way.

This is a movie that does an excellent job of keeping us guessing. It has plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep us wondering what is real or not. In a weird way, it feels more like a comedic vision of Memento without giving away too much along the way.

Sanjay Rao is the star of the show here, getting laughs in nearly every scene. This is down to the awkward comedy he presence throughout the movie. The supporting cast is strong too, playing into the bigger story going on.

Where to Watch: Bad Romance is Available on Amazon Prime, Vudu, and Tubi this Valentine’s Day

Final ThoughtsBad Romance is a delightful odd romantic comedy.
