When Shakespeare wrote "the course of true love never did run smooth", it's unlikely he was referring to a teen-focused violent altercation at a burger joint, but the guy was pretty prophetic.

With I Love Your Guts, writer/director David Janove manages to blend an instantly relatable workplace crush into a genuinely dramatic and funny tale of overcoming emotional and physical odds.

Masterfully balancing the tone - its Booksmart-charm somehow being a natural bedfellow to the Grindhouse gore. - this confident and competent slice of narrative action shows a filmmaker with a natural flair for both tension and tenderness.
