On Valentine's Day, Tom (Cuba Gooding Jr.) stops at a local bar to down a glass of courage on his way home to ask his live-in lover to marry him.

    The problem is that if Callahan spent even a week writing this script, he wasted four good days. The dialogue, characters and situations are distressingly bad. show more

    In its own peculiar way, What Love Is is a testament to the redemptive power of words. Thankfully, Callahan knows to keep it short and sweet, lest his audience go mad from the noise. show more
