It’s a rarity when a film can make you see red with rage, but also make you laugh out loud and filmmaker Daniel Sorochkin has done just that with his latest romantic comedy.
A play on the implications of “Check please!” and true to its title, Sorochkin’s film is sure to cause you to want to hurry out of the restaurant – especially after the debacle that ensues. This worst case scenario comedy follows a botched marriage proposal wherein Ben plans to propose to his long time girlfriend, Laura, only to find out that his ring was mistakenly sent to the wrong table – and he can’t get it back.
Written and directed by Daniel Sorochkin

AKA how to tell the story of human greed so that it’s entertaining and revolting at the same time. AKA if history books/teachers would tell things even slightly as colourfully as this, more people would pay attention.
Story is a bit. Well. What do you expect? It’s a full on action flick. Though it has some redeeming moments, a few clever twists or turns can’t save it from the banality that it promises (and delivers). To clarify, there are more not-quite-so-clever twists.
Another not another love story. Beautifully told. Simple enough to follow, yet complicated enough to experience. Dialogue can be a bit sappy at times, but I guess that is a side effect of love rather than just bad writing. Nevertheless it feels stupid. Other times it can be a bit too vague. The dialogue. As well as what’s currently happening. These are mostly minor issues though.
