Director Luke Matheny begins his quirky romantic comedy parody by defining "lovesick" as being "so deeply affected by love as to be unable to act normally." As his protagonist moves from a charming gentleman to a "crazy in love" stalker, viewers can't help but laugh as each of Charlie's imaginative scenarios become more elaborate than before -- bike rides with the bellhop turn into romantic Tuscan getaways with Dr. Oz. The dramatic soundtrack also adds to the slapstick humor, especially when other characters mistake Charlie's extremely jealous and paranoid behavior for grand romantic gestures.

Viewers might also think twice, or possibly recognize some of their own social media habits, after watching Charlie's obsessive lurking on Molly's online profile end up causing him to constantly doubt their relationship. While Lovesick doesn't tell us whether Charlie overcomes his psychosis, it does remind us that we can all get a little lovesick without trust and communication in our relationships.
