Two Night Stand: Blu Ray Review

Two Night Stand: Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by Roadshow Home Ent

Pairing together two of the hottest young actors at the moment, Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton, this rom-com offers a bit more than you'd perhaps expect.

Tipton plays Megan a frustrated single who joins a dating website and ends up meeting Teller's Alec and sharing a connection. But after a one-night stand the duo ends up trapped in the Alec's apartment when a snow storm hits.

But the snow storm could have more than just a few implications for the duo.

Initially pacy and zingy, Two Night Stand ends up losing its way as the truth comes out; Teller and Tipton make an engaging couple but the film just isn't up to par with them. Cyber dating and an engaging duo make it stand out, but they struggle to keep the piece moving despite the 85 mins run time.

It may have charm and be a little quirky, Two Night Stand is guilty of squandering its promise; it could have been a smart little film about cyber one night stands but ends up being a piece that panders to the tropes of the rom com genre. A pleasant enough viewing experience with some nicely written moments, but it feels like it could so easily have been more.
