TWO NIGHT STAND


By D.E.Levine

A very cute movie that is also a commentary on modern society and dating. Megan (Analeigh Tipton), who has already been hurt in love, takes to the Web and soon is chatting with Alec (Miles Teller).  Neither of these young people wants commitment or strings so they agree  to meet.

Megan goes from the East Village to Alec's apartment in Brooklyn and they spend the night together. The next morning they find that they are snowed in after a massive snowstorm has hit the city and immobolized everybody and everything.

Unfortunately, even though they are snowed in together, they cannot stand each other.  While initially a light-hearted comedy, later in the day these two young people open up to one another, discussing their psychological bruises and leaving the door open for love.

Two Night Stand is a sweet movie which makes some interesting comments about our society.  One of the truest and most touching lines is when Alec says that Internet dating amounts to a "bunch of people sitting around texting in the dark.
