Picks and Pans Review: Love & Sex

Famke Janssen, Jon Favreau

Like Julia Roberts and Michelle Pfeiffer before her, Famke Janssen (X-Men) has wasted no time in proving that she can hold a screen with talent as well as phenomenal good looks. Her appealing performance is the main reason to seek out Love & Sex, a trifling romantic comedy.

The actress is a winsome bundle of nerves as an L.A. magazine writer who has suffered through too many bad beaux. "Love is like a minefield," she says, "but it hurts so much to be alone that we'd all rather blow up." Her main mine is a cuddly artist (Favreau, making like Woody Allen on steroids). Writer-director Valerie Breiman strives to be smart and hip, but L&S plays like an overly cute sitcom. (Not rated)

Bottom Line: Too little of both
