Nothing like a quirky comedy to lift the spirits. In the spirit of romance and love stories, the quirky comedies are by far the best representation of relationship movies. Love is supposed to be awkward and about this two-step dance that the two awe struck leads are supposed to follow. I don’t care what the current romantic comedy with Kate Hudson or Sandra Bullock or Sarah Jessica Parker tells you, that sets up this unrealistic portrayal of romance. I have been to my fair share of romantic comedies, namely because my then girlfriends ate that stuff up. They are too pretty, too perfect, too just unrealistic. We all want to meet our special someone, but I doubt we are all meeting them at loft parties in New York or at the latest club hotspot in Los Angeles. Sorry to break that reality (not really). So I find my hope and expectation met in the romance department with these quirky love stories like Eagle vs. Shark. It’s not a perfect movie, but the characters are entertaining, full of quirk and affable.
