That Burning Feeling may not break any new ground for the oddball romantic comedy, but it’s charming and confident and willing to get a little weird.
In Vancouver producer Jason James’s feature debut, hotshot developer Adam Murphy (Paulo Costanzo) is forced to look up his past sexual partners – and re-evaluate his life choices – after he’s diagnosed with gonorrhea.
The fairly rote script is brought to life by very smart casting. Costanzo is an appealing lead, Scott Pilgrim’s Ingrid Haas as a well-meaning but conflicted do-gooder adds some nice layering to the role of Murphy’s love interest, Tyler Labine and Jay Brazeau have fun with their goofy supporting roles, and John Cho is positively Walken-worthy as Adam’s delusional boss.
