A lot of times when Netflix has suggestions for me, I watch the film and think, "Huh?"
But they had a suggestion, "The Fling," that was actually a good one.
I woke up at 2:00 in the morning this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. So I grabbed the laptop to stream a film figuring I'd be asleep in ten to twenty minutes.
I just wanted something on for background noise. So I went with what was suggested.
Nick and Sam are a couple. They have an open relationship. They go to a wedding and while Nick's hooking up with an 18-year-old woman, Sam's hooking up with her old boyfriend.
I think everybody knows she's going to end up pregnant.
The script wasn't full of any real surprises.
But Courtney Ford was really incredible as Sam. The two male leads were good too. Brandon Routh (whom I also liked in Diamond Dogs) and Steve Sandvoss.
It's not the greatest film of all time.
But it's very good and the performances really are solid.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
