I Really Hate My Ex

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 4/14/15

I enjoyed this "chick flick". It made me chuckle quite a bit. It starts out as fun and silly, but eventually it transforms into something that's a little bit more thoughtful. If you like relationships, you should enjoy this movie.

A woman, Brea (Troy Beyer), gets dumped by her groom-to-be, so she kidnaps him. She has two friends who do the same with their exes. It's all played for comedy, for the most part. A lot of the movie is told online by Brea and her friends after she enters an internet chat talk show where everyone is complaining about their exes.

The movie is not a big budget movie, and sometimes the script meanders around, but once it gets to a certain point, things move along well and it's very interesting to see how this all plays out, and how the couples work out their problems. I'm really trying hard not to give too much away because there are several surprises along the way.

Beyer not only stars in the movie but wrote and directed it as well. Check it out! You can watch it on Amazon Prime, like I did, or buy the DVD, etc. 

The DVD has just one feature: a behind-the-scenes special. It's too bad there aren't some interviews and other extras.
