Just in time for Valentine’s Day; Ron Oliver‘s Cupid is a film about playing matchmaker and attempting to find that one true love, courtesy of the Hallmark Channel. Joely Fisher stars as Eve Lovett. Eve is a workaholic talk show host; she’s unlucky in her own love life, but she has to go through the tediously romantic: she must pair couples under the guidance of a mysterious man in order to find her one true love. Cupid is perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day season and contains warm moments and above average acting for a made for TV film.
The most important thing in Eve Lovett’s life is her career; she is the host of a daytime talk show and is always concerned about her ratings. But when one of her guests is replaced with a man who addresses himself as Vernon Gart (Jamie Kennedy), her love life takes a dramatic turn. Vernon reveals that he works for a company known only as Cupid, Inc., and his purpose is to unite her with her one true love. But in order to do so, she must improve the love and emotional lives of those at her station.
Fisher’s character, Eve, starts out as the standard successful woman who is focused on her work a little too much and tends to ignore everyone around her at the office–even going as far as to forget the names of others. It was pleasant to see her character progress into a more caring and thoughtful person with the help of Vernon. Jamie Kennedy does a good job adding a touch of charm in his role as cupid.
Cupid is not one of those overly romantic, complicated comedies. It is just one of those movies that’s enjoyable to watch on Valentine’s Day.
Love is in the air.
