Charlyne Yi, as a romantic sceptic, is on a mission to research love and it's very existence with a documentary crew and Michael Cera in tow.
How cute is this movie? Totally! Adorable stand-up and musician Charlyne Yi doesn’t believe in love.
So she embarks on a whimsical road trip across America to find out what love is. Bikers, gay couples, scientists, elderly couples, starry-eyed teens, romance novelists, her pal Seth Rogen, and a Vegas Elvis impersonator offer musings on that happy state that leave her more bewildered. But when Michael Cera starts wooing her, her scepticism wavers in this captivating mix of documentary and mockumentary that plays with what’s real and what’s fantasy. You really want them to be a couple, they are that darling, in a heart-warmer to make a cynic grin.
Adorable. Ad-or-able. It will melt even the coldest heart.

What planet has your reviewer come from? This film was awful, didn't set out and explain what it had planned, and just looked like a jolly that rich kids like to do when they are bored!
This film is terrible and a waste of money. The only good thing in it was Michael Cera just being himself! ... More
