Over the years, we’ve been fed enough rom-com dramas surrounded by a love triangle. A girl with aspirations who tries to excel in her career at the cost of her love life but losing everything; and at the same time, win it all. Add in between a dash of cute guys, your ex’s return, your career on the rise, finally a closure, and a happy ending, we’ve seen it all. Resort to Love offers nothing new, except the “yeah, they won’t screw it up” suspense between Jason and Erica at the resort.
Directed by Steven K. Tsuchida and written by Tabi McCartney and Dana Schmalenberg, the 1½ hour runtime contains all the drama, love, suspense, and loads of geckos. It’s a fun watch on a weekend with your partner through a Skype call or with your friends to get over that breakup. The music is decent. From crying out loud in front of strangers over her new job to dominating it in front of her ex’s fiancée, Christina’s roller coaster feelings seem very relatable. And we must all have met a confused, anxious, and hyperactive man like Jason in our lives, right? Sinqua Walls, like the smooth older brother, brings the much-needed peace of mind when on screen, and even instantly calms us down. And did we mention that he looks stunning and has a sculpted body that makes you want to pause the movie every time it appears on screen? The supporting cast, including bonus band member Barrington (TJ Power), Claire (Sylvaine Strike, the receptionist), Beverley’s sister, and Jason’s friend and parents continue to the beat of this sweet rom-com. .
So if you’re looking for a feel-good movie with a predictable storyline, stunning locations, and an engaging cast, this movie has it all for you.
