Love, Rosie is a romantic comedy about two English high school students who run off to the US together for college, but perhaps also find something in one another in the process.
There’s the lady: Rosie, a kinda slutty broad who, at the end of senior year, has a one night stand with the most popular boy in school, and the condom comes off while they do it, and she gets pregnant.
There’s the fella: Alex, a total nerd who can’t get with girls and is a total loser. He does lose his virginity, but it’s awkward and weird.
The story follows them over the course of ten years, so 28 year old Sam Claflin isn’t supposed to be young the whole time, and over those ten years they learn and grow together, until, presumably, they get together in the end as these two star-crossed lovers always should.
Love, Rosie comes from director Christian Ditter, who I think is German, cause all his other work has umlauts and such in them. German.
The film is based on the book by Cecilia Ahern, who also wrote the novel for PS I Love You, so she’s evil incarnate. Juliette Towdidi wrote the screenplay, and she wrote the disturbing screenplay for Calendar Girls, which was about old bitches getting naked for a calendar.

Who’s In It?
Lily Collins . . . Rosie
Sam Claflin . . . Alex
What’s Good About It?
Love, Rosie has a decent cast, at least in terms of the leads Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, who are both up and comers. The trailers are pretty dirty overall, but each focuses on one half of the eventual relationship, so the film might do a nice job of balancing the two leads. That’s good.
What’s Bad About It?
Condoms coming off when I’m banging a broad is my #2 fear. #1 is the condom comes off in me because I got too drunk at a gay bar and made a bad decision.
Our Clever Prediction
Love, Rosie could be a big hit. It looks a lot like That Awkward Moment, which didn’t totally flop, but if it turns out to be better written and provide a more balanced view of relationships for both men and women (and not be a bro-fest) it might actually be good.
And I wouldn’t mind having my condom pop off in Lily Collins.
