If your idea of a great date is to chain smoke and drink shots of Jack Daniels then you may enjoy the kind of romance that is presented in A Lot Like Love, an entertainment that is a lot like a romantic comedy, but without real romance or much comedy. Aston Kutcher and Amanda Peet, two fetching looking young people, meet and become very familiar with one another on an airplane. That first meeting sets the pattern of the two getting together for brief flings every now and again for seven years, but every time something, or someone happens to keeps them apart. The only people more traumatized by their relationship woes than themselves is the audience that has to sit through 107 minutes of this. To see this kind of story done right, do yourself a favor and rent the double feature of Before Sunrise and Before Sunset.
