In Search of a Midnight Kiss (2007)

In Search of a Midnight Kiss (2007), written and directed by Alex Holdridge

In Search of a Midnight Kiss is like one of those movies critics love. *checks* Yup, it’s won three awards. Bingo. Should’ve known from the black and white, really.

It’s not funny, and I don’t find it charming either. It’s about some generic loser of a guy who finds a girl on Craigslist who turns out to be a really annoying nutcase and their first date on New Year’s Eve.

“Romantic comedy” … I’ve not laughed once. I cringed in the beginning, when he had photoshopped his flatmate’s girlfriend’s face on a nude picture and they discovered him jerking off to it. Ehh.

Unlike last night, when I ended up watching the entirety of Derailed, I’m cutting this one short. It’s about 45 minutes left, and I’m actually calling it a night. Her voice is seriously grating. Off to bed, night night.

Did Not Finish.


An easily distracted Swedish introvert residing in Robin Hood Country (Nottingham, UK) with a husband and two cats. She's an eager participant in tabletop and play-by-post roleplaying, woodworking, photography and European travel, when there's not a plague on.
