Speed dating the movie
October 21, 2010 | Rating: 1/5 Tim Cogshell / Boxoffice Magazine Everything about this film is fairly offensive, including its racial stereotypes, homophobia, misogyny, generally bad writing and amateur filmmaking.October 7, 2010 | Rating: .5/4 Diego Semerene / Slant Magazine The only thing perhaps scarier than being surprised by the gay monster is, apparently, mistaking a tranny for a real woman.
TOMATOMETER Critics 25% | Audience 40% October 2, 2010 / “Speed-Dating” tells the tale of three bachelors, Too Cool (Wesley Jonathan), Beaver (Leonard Robinson) and Dog (Chico Benymon), who spend their evenings putting on fake “speed dating” events in a effort to get large quantities of women together that they can then pick-and-choose from (while also making some money off the unwitting male and female participants). Why is Chris Elliott blue, and is that Clint Howard scamming on chicks?Have straight men not found other creative ways of attesting their sexual identity without reasserting gayness as some kind of invisible time bomb, a sly Sphinx lurking inside, ready to storm out and castrate everybody? Apparently one is safe if he is the first to recognize this sneaky queer demon, which must be why Dog points out Beaver’s supposed gayness every other scene. I’ve gotten a taste of what that really is and I’m not that crazy about it personally. And the introduction of the supposedly "high tech" guru character who spends way too much time trying to impress us with his chatter about big data, devops, integration of legacy systems and other contrived chatter that just proves he's an idiot and does not create any humor.Geeky Clarence is completely unnecessary and unfit for this story, and should have been written out of it.
