What's Up, Scarlet?

Almost every note in this insipid, poorly acted 2005 video comedy rings false. A chic, workaholic matchmaker (Susan Priver), successful at arranging relationships for everyone but herself, gets into a fender bender with a homeless actress (Musetta Vander), whom she then offers to put up for the night. They have nothing in common and no visible erotic chemistry, yet they eventually become lovers, to the consternation of the matchmaker's narcissistic mom (Sally Kirkland) and no-account brother (Jere Burns). Priver, a veteran of the Los Angeles stage, has said that cowriting the screenplay with director Anthony Caldarella, her longtime partner, killed their romance. Somehow that's not surprising. 84 min.
