Very Badly Done
16 April 2019 | by socratesadamoSee all my reviews

THE COMPETITION is a romantic comedy of the worst kind. And for a guy who doesn't particularly care for the genre to begin with, I sure seem to find myself sitting through more than my fair share of them. But this one takes the cake in terms of just how awful it truly was.

There are a few relatively decent laughs here, and I feel like the writer at least started with a nearly coherent idea, so that's what kept be from giving it a lower score than I did. But the acting is bad, the directing is bad, and overall the story just falls apart before it even gets going. It's embarrassing. Even hardcore rom-com fans will find themselves hard-pressed to find much good in this film. Do not recommend.
