46. When Will I Be Loved (2004)

Roger's Rating :

Should be :

If the title is talking about the movie then the answer is never, except by Roger who gave this travesty 4 stars in his review.
In his At The Movies review Roger said "Toback has always been good at scenes of sexual negotiations but this time he writes a masterpiece." He adds "It is one of those movies that you hold your breath waiting for it to fall off the tight wire and it never does." He goes on to say "Smart characters in a smart movie about sex and money. I loved it."
In Roger's written review he says "What is fascinating and ingenious about When Will I be Loved is that nothing need be anticipated, not even the possibility of a con. In scenes of flawless timing, logic and execution, Vera improvises in a fluid situation and perhaps even surprises herself at where she ends up."
Roger seems to like the ideas being explored in this movie. He gave the really awful Indecent Proposal, which has a similar theme, a Thumbs Up in 1993.
If this movie had been called Two Creeps and a Nut then I would have liked it better. Really good music and good acting by Neve Campbell are wasted in a misogynistic, warped, disaster of a film. It might be Roger's worst 4 star review. Don't watch it; buy the soundtrack.
It has a 4.7 rating on IMDB and a 33% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
