      Audience Member That was much better than many other light "love" type movies I have watched on Netflx with big name stars. It is sweet, fluffy and the cast did a very good job with the acting. I liked it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member There was nothing else to watch and in the end it was cute. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Oh, the weight those three fateful words bear. We use codes like âILYâ? and â143â? and symbols like hearts and arrows, but nothing ever comes close to the real thing. Itâ(TM)s life changing when someone we care about utters the words, âI love youâ?. Mark Deacon is a guy whoâ(TM)s had a tough time in the field of love. Heâ(TM)s not a bad guy, but he has an issue when it comes to commitment. To him, relationships are like posters. You like them enough to bring home, and theyâ(TM)re nice to look at and show off for a while. Sooner or later, however, they need to be replaced. Mark is not the type of guy looking for a tattoo- or bumper-sticker-relationship. The 2009 film by Brett Simmons, based on the play, âI Love You! â¦and Youâ¦and You,â? finds the character Mark single once again. He decides to take up a new hobby, as he always does when he falls out of a relationship, and soon stumbles upon a flyer at work advertising a karate class. What ensues can only be explained as a crazy, eye-opening experience. The film features independent actors who show some great talent. Bryan Price, who plays Mark Deacon, convinces the audience of his characterâ(TM)s authenticity. Heâ(TM)s awkward but funny, and surprisingly charming. Thereâ(TM)s some great chemistry between him and the women he dates. The meetings and breakups are all interesting to watch, and though we donâ(TM)t get to know them all very well, the characters in this film are not easy to forget. The casting was very well done. While thereâ(TM)s a slightly amateur feel to the entire thing, Mark of Love is a funny movie with a refreshing and realistic sense of humor. Thereâ(TM)s a bit of quirkiness and irony throughout that can provide viewers with a few additional giggles. The script is not jammed with clichà (C)s as so many romantic comedies are; instead, itâ(TM)s rather clever, and the plot is so crazy but believable that one canâ(TM)t help but find it funny. Thereâ(TM)s a bit of a cheese factor, but what romantic comedy doesnâ(TM)t have a few corny lines? The accompanying soundtrack is also cute and very appropriate. Mark of Love is unpredictable, realistic, and overall very satisfying. The film reminds viewers that there are so many lessons one can learn by teaching, and that taking risks can be very rewarding. Mark of Love boasts a cool, full-circle storyline that almost anyone could enjoy. (via FilmMonthly) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
