Syrupy, sometimes tiresome, commercial comedy
A syrupy commercial comedy. The numerous funny moments save this film from being a tiresome slog through a story of a young man, his mother and the many women he encounters while working as a photographer for a (weekly?) magazine. The journalism part allowed the screenwriter to populate the screen with a bunch of reporters that are exaggerated character caricatures. In addition, the work of on-the-street news gathering is used to insert comedy skits, not germane to the story but milked for their humor potential with varying degree of success. If you tolerate the kind of comedy that shows on TV, then this film will entertain you.
