M.i.d.d.l.i.n.g.

See it if you want to hear a winsome actress kiss-and-tell about her lifetime of lovers in an amiable but ultimately shallow 1-woman therapy session.

Don't see it if you expect wit, insight or deep thoughts on love, sex, relationships or self-actualization. [This is a pleasant diversion & not much more.]

Resonant, Indulgent, Raunchy, Disappointing, Banal

See it if Robbins tries very hard to get us interested in her voyage from entitled princess to enlightened woman but both script & talent fail her

Don't see it if There are no new insights or discoveries in this story of female empowerment Author/actress has a flair for one-liners; piece as stand-up??

"Usually, this sort of confessional memory piece is centered about a profound personal challenge, social issue, or obsession. This is the tale of an unremarkable life, unremarkably told. It isn't terrible so much as it is mystifying."

September 18th, 2019

"Written and performed by Lois Robbins (best known up till now for her long stints on three soap operas), 'L.O.V.E.R.' is an old-fashioned confessional tale of a "liberated" woman who spends her life discovering that love and sex are not necessarily the same thing."

"There's both plenty of humor and sorrow in her long and winding road, and Robbins is an extremely engaging storyteller."

September 11th, 2019

"Robbins is polished and pleasant, but (a few moments of genuineness aside) she comes across more as an actress than the spontaneously charming person she needs to be. Nor is she helped by material filled with commonplaces that aren't enhanced by her occasional tendency to giggle."
