Boy meets girl. Boy sleeps with girl. Boy doesn’t really know girl’s name, but that’s okay because boy has no intention of calling girl. Boy contracts a little something that rhymes with “shmonorrhea.” When Adam (Paulo Costanzo), a young womanizing professional, has to retrace his recent flings and inform them of his predicament, he never imagines the turns his once empty life will take. THAT BURNING FEELING is a romantic comedy that adapts the well-established boy-meets-girl scenario and injects it with chaos, unemployment, fencing, community organizing, and about 15 meds a day. With hilarious characters such as Adam’s scum of a boss, his neighbor, and the only girl he seems to want to call again—THAT BURNING FEELING takes the audience on a comic journey of self-discovery as Adam searches for meaning from the very people who know him best: the women he didn’t care to know at all. Delightful and charming, this is one film that is sure to leave you with a mark. (But not that kind of mark.) —T.W.
