Summary:

In TWO NINAS, a lonely single man dates two women simultaneously, each named Nina. Talents are truly wasted in this familiar, formulaic and predictable story, which includes plenty of foul language along with some sexual content and jokes about drug use.

Review:

In TWO NINAS, two guys work the crowded bar scenes of New York, each trying to “score” a string of one-night stands. Dave, the confident ladies man, tries to help his best friend, Marty, who seems destined to be forever unlucky in love. Within a few days, however, Marty finds himself dating two women simultaneously, each named Nina. He revels in the sexual and romantic relationships until the TWO NINAS meet each other and uncover his cheating ways.

TWO NINAS tries to be cute and charming, but it is actually a sad depiction of the sexually active and nightly drinking singles life. The movie’s characters hate their jobs, their bosses, their lives, and themselves while seeking comfort and hope in the New York nightlife. TWO NINAS wants its characters to be honest with each other, yet none are honest with themselves about their escapist behavior. In fact, the movie includes some joking about drug use. It’s not at all surprising, therefore, when one character exclaims, “Sobriety and parties don’t mix!”

This romantic comedy is rarely funny. It’s also unengaging and a poor attempt at a date movie. Filmed in New York City in just 16 days, its quality falls short of even television fare. Talents are truly wasted in this familiar, formulaic and predictable story. The TWO NINAS is an embarrassment.
