Love Life

Silly, sudsy "Love Life" is a quadrangle in which two yuppies in an old-fashioned "beard" marriage realize that, duh, maintaining the pretense of heterosexual suburban normality isn't worth it if you're miserable. Mostly an excuse for two muscular male and two beautiful female actors to get it on, with much yelling in between, unconvincing drama should score a few gay fest dates before going straight (ahem) to gay-niche home markets.

With: Stephanie Kirchen, Stephen D. Gill, Jill Cozine, Keith A. Bearden.

“I know what I like, and sex is not at the top of that list,” Mary Hahn (Stephanie Kirchen) says. Like nearly everything that comes out of her mouth, however, this statement is self-deluding. She and ex pro-baseballer husband Joe (Stephen D. Gill) have a marital relationship designed to placate her wealthy mother, whose moolah keeps them living in comfort. But when Mary’s onetime college fling (Jill Cozine) resurfaces, and Joe clicks with a hunky landscaper (Keith A. Bearden), the masquerade’s days are numbered. Lead characters’ hypocrisies and denial are so transparent there’s no dramatic tension waiting for them to expire, and the script goes from sketchy to ridiculous. Attractive thesps are OK under the circumstances, tech/design elements nondescript.
