F*ck Love Too

Common Sense Media Reviewers
Language, sex, drinking in clumsy Dutch romcom.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
People make mistakes and can learn from them. Forgiveness is important, and so are honesty and commitment. Relationships require work.
Positive Role Models
Lisa, Angela, and Kiki are honest about their feelings. Jack behaves selfishly, hurting others in the process. Bo and Said agree to work on their marriage in therapy out of respect for their history and love and for the benefit of their children.
This is a Dutch film shot in Dutch and filmed partially in Spain. Characters are racially diverse, including within marriages and across generations in families. One man of color accuses the Dutch police of "ethnic profiling" when they stop him on the street (though he is actually involved in the crime they're investigating).

Violence & Scariness
A grandma dies and her body is viewed (and photographed) in an open casket, which is also knocked over at one point during her funeral. A woman sprays a man's face with a substance that causes him pain. A policeman uses a Taser on a suspected criminal. A policewoman punches a man who kisses her. A woman is arrested for being a suspected sex worker, shoved up against a car, and then put in jail overnight.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
One explicit sex scene shows no private parts, but other scenes show bare bottoms of both genders and frontal nudity on men (private parts covered up) or people in underwear. The beginnings of a sex tape are accidentally played at a funeral. A couple kiss. A man is revealed to be a male escort; the woman who sleeps with him is concerned about an "STD." A man sends a "d--k pic" to the wrong person. A rap music video shows women gyrating into the camera and lyrics about rubbing and sucking "d--k." Discussion of sex, "boobies," "free the nipple," vibrators (called a "pleasure pole"), being "horny," having a "dried-out box," promiscuity, and birth control.

What's the Story?
In F*CK LOVE TOO, Lisa (Bo Maerten) has recently left her longtime beau Jim (Gesa Weisz) when she realizes he's not interested in settling down and having a family. Following her grandmother's death, she and her two best friends, Angela (Bettina Holwerda) and Kiki (Nienke Plas), decide to go on vacation to Ibiza to celebrate Kiki's engagement. There, Lisa starts a fling with an old friend, Noah (Dorian Bindels). Meanwhile, back home in Holland, Lisa's ex, Jack (Edwin Jonker), is about to become a father to two separate babies -- whose moms, Cindy (Victoria Koblenko) and Monica (Anouk Maas), don't know about each other. And Jack's best friend Said (Maurits Delchot) is having marital troubles -- again -- with his wife, Bo (Yolanthe Cabau).
Is It Any Good?
Nothing much works in this forced romcom except the put-together looks of its attractive 30-something cast. Intended laughs fall flat and dramatic situations feel largely shallow and artificial in F*ck Love Too. Some scenarios are surprisingly off-tone for the times, like a man asking his grumpy friend if he "has his period" or advising him to send a "d--k pic" (then sending him one of his own as inspiration), or a woman saying her "days of pleasure are numbered" because she's getting married. You can pile a bunch of beautiful people together, send them to Ibiza, and invent reasons for their relationships to go off course, but stringing it all together into a meaningful hour and a half requires something deeper than this film attempts.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how the different couples in F*ck Love Too try to make their relationships work. Which couple seems to have the healthiest or strongest bond, and why?
A rap music video is shown to be in bad taste, but the singer seems nothing like his on-screen persona. Does this seem realistic? Why, or why not?
What does Jack, whom everyone calls selfish, learn over the course of the movie?
