Movies Of Tyra Banks

Love Stinks (1999)
Starring: French Stewart, Bridgette Wilson
Director: Jeff Franklin
Reel Snapshot: Lowbrow comedy about a commitment-phobic man pushed by his manipulative girlfriend right into a palimony suit. Its insipid, misogynist comedy will only have the most devout of 3rd Rock's French Stewart fans laughing.

Reviews

Los Angeles Times - 2
Gene Seymour simply states that "low comedy doesn't get any lower" than this film. He thinks Stewart's a funny guy on 3rd Rock from the Sun, but complains that his talents are wasted here, especially as a romantic lead.

USA Today - 2
USA Today calls this "the most malevolently misogynist movie we are likely to see this year." They agree that Stewart's a funny actor, but not leading-man material.

New York Times - 2
Anita Gates calls this a "one-dimensional comedy that mostly falls flat," saying that the characters aren't convincing, and the humor isn't effective. She's unwilling to get worked up about its misogynist undertones because she says the whole film doesn't make much of a statement.
