A celebrity journalist and a down-to-earth teacher find their relationship in rocky waters when a job gets in the way of their new life together. This is the sequel to 2021’s Squared Love and while it has a few more idiosyncrasies up its sleeve than the original, it remains a paint-by-numbers romcom.
The movie revolves around Enzo, a womanizer journalist who falls in love with an elementary school teacher with a secret model alter-ego. The teacher, named Monika, is a beautiful bespectacled blonde who looks quite striking when she goes into her modeling persona. Enzo, on the other hand, is a sexy good-looking playboy who drives a fancy sports car and cruises in his designer suits. He and Monika fall in love and decide to spend more time with each other, but Enzo can’t resist the lure of the spotlight and the adoring fans that follow him everywhere.
Unfortunately, the premise of the story isn’t as funny or interesting as it could have been. The chemistry between the two actors isn’t strong enough to make the movie work and their lack of emoting makes it difficult to care about them. The plot itself is a bit too contrived and unrealistic to be taken seriously, especially considering the fact that it is supposed to be a romantic comedy.
Nonetheless, it isn’t without its charms and if you are looking for a lighthearted Valentine’s Day flick, this might be worth checking out. Just don’t expect it to be the next RomCom hit.
