The day after the screening my mother was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital and as I'm walking out the hospital at 8 o'clock that night the man walking behind me stops me.I turn around and it's one of the men I speed dated the night before! As he walked with me back to my car I found out his mother was just admitted the night before the movie screening. The film takes viewers directly into the lives of older singles who still yearn to be seen, understood and touched, and perhaps find a new chance at love. to watch the documentary “The Age of Love.” The story follows 30 seniors who sign up for a first-of-its kind speed dating event designed exclusively for people 70 to 90 years old.Not too mention, I looked pretty fly (if I say so myself..I do!) the night of the screening, but Wednesday I looked like I'd been sitting in a hospital all day and under distress. You might get lucky and make a love connection, but speed dating is probably more like the movie where you play just to get lucky because "love at first sight happens every night." Speed-Dating is a romantic comedy starring Wesley Jonathan ("Roll Bounce"), Chico Benymon (UPN's "Half & Half"), Leonard Robinson (MTV's "Wild 'N Out"), Vanessa Simmons ("Run's House") and Chicago's very own Mekita Faiye, who also produced the film and birthed her "baby" here at home with family and friends.The movie is a fundraiser for the Hollywood Senior Center and Elders in Action and part of the Age Friendly Portland Initiative.
Maybe that's always been my hangup about speed dating events.After watching the movie trailer I was expecting nothing but laughs and that's exactly what I got.Speed-Dating follows Too Cool (Wesley), Beaver (Robinson) and Dog (Benymon)--all best friends--as they search for Mrs. In real life, seeing women ran through and discarded isn't too funny to me, but on the big screen it's pure comedy!Even the man or woman with the hardest exterior may be gooey inside and fragile like an egg.If you're really serious about loving and being loved, then be ready to stand in the fire and cook. This is a great date movie (not too intense, get some nervous tension out the way), or great to see with a group of your guys or for a girl's night out.
