Love Again by Jim Strouse [5/10]

The classic rom-com setup of “Love Again“—when a grieving widow texts her dead husband, she reaches a moochy music critic who is drawn to her missives—might have, in better hands, worked a treat. But the plot plods with in a predictable line, the dialogue is banal, and the atmosphere reeks of treacle. Most notably, the female star role played by Prianka Chopra Jonas, oozes fake sex appeal and homeliness. The film’s only saving grace is a brilliant, serious rendering of the chump destined for love by Sam Heughan, complete with that lovely Scottish accent. A yawn a minute.
