Baby Baby Baby (2016)

I watched this movie on my way home from Shanghai, and while I had never heard of it, I really enjoyed it a lot.  It is an independent romantic comedy, but one that has more grit and less of a happy ending than would be usual for the genre.  One reviewer I read summed it up best: Someone once said: “Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby: awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.”
So here is how it goes.  Sydney(Brian Klugman, who you might know from his role as a forensic anthropology intern on Bones),is  a man fresh out of a grueling breakup, looking for anything than to put himself in that situation again.  Which is a semi-chronic condition for him. Until he meets Sonny(Adrianne Palicki). The two go out for a drink and one thing leads to another.  But life and jealousy get in the way.  So this film is about real relationships, and not your usual romantic comedy ones.  The writing is the star of this movie. It is unequivocally funny, irresistibly heartwarming, and  better express the emotions and state of the relationship the protagonist is experiencing than most of what's out there. Throughout this film, you find yourself loving both sides of the relationship, and understanding where each is coming from in their troubles, while hoping it will all work out.  keep your fingers crossed.
