CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Love, Marriage, and Other Bad Ideas, the newest release from New Sensations’ Romance Series hits retail stores April 30. Directed by Eddie Powell, the movie deals with problems facing many couples today from sexual dysfunction to financial struggles.
The serious subject matter belies the movie's humorous touch as each character figures out how to get past their own individual issues and discovers whether their relationship is ultimately worth salvaging.
The majority of the cast are familiar faces in The Romance Series: Richie Calhoun, Dana DeArmond, Natasha Nice, Xander Corvus, Anthony Rosano, and Lexi Belle with the introduction of two newcomers to the line, Wolf Hudson and Alison Tyler.
“While we have a stable of talented and reliable performers, we like to branch out and use new people that bring a fresh and different look to the line from time to time. Alison Tyler and Wolf Hudson do just that,” director Eddie Powell said.
The romantic comedy centers around Dr. Paul Highland (Calhoun), a marital counselor who after years of dealing with an endless array of other people's problems, finds himself no longer believing in love. That is until April (Tyler), a beautiful bride to be, unwittingly seeks his advice. Sparks fly when an immovable object such as Paul Highland meets an unstoppable force such as April. Can the two opposing forces find a common ground? Or is this just another session in Dr. Highland's busy practice otherwise known as his life?
“Most people have a relationship horror story," screenwriter Jacky St. James said. "‘Why did I date that person?’ ‘What was I thinking?’ I wanted to write a script that delved into why people make the choices they make…and whether they can pull themselves out of that funk and be truly happy, or if those relationships are ultimately doomed. Don’t be fooled by the title though. There are some really touching love stories within the script and I’m confident that most people will be able to relate to a lot of the issues presented within the film.”
