This love story has its comical moments but gets massacred midway by thesp Daphna Kastner overplaying the sexually repressed, emotionally hungry businesswoman, Lana.Lana in Love begins as an amusing tale of mistaken identities but quickly falls apart as Kastner’s shrill voice belittles love interest Marty, stifling both their budding romance and pic. But legit thesp Clark Gregg makes an impressive screen debut as the plumber Marty who arrives at the wrong address. Lana is waiting for a podiatrist she found through the classified ads and assumes Marty is her mystery man.
