Summary: After Frannie is involved in a car accident and comes home with a broken arm and leg, she realizes she has no one to take care of her. So, in an act of desperation, she decides to call her ex-boyfriend to help her out.
My Thoughts: This movie takes "in sickness and in health" to an extreme. It's unique because I haven't seen anything like it and quirky, but not in a hipster way and Take Care is slightly, but not too much of a step above most of the romantic comedies I've seen recently. From the two leads who have the most magnetic chemistry to her ex-boyfriends kind-of-crazy, but lovable current girlfriend.
After reading the little description, I was a tad put-off by the plot because I didn't know how well it would play out. It surpassed my expectations, especially because it was a shot in the dark and I really had nothing else to do, but I was invested in every aspect of the movie. I originally thought it was too different and would ultimately be complete shit, but it wasn't. And another thing, for it being so different from anything I've seen before, the plot was quite simple and light. I can't really go into details because it would spoil the whole thing, but this movie had a lot of things going for it besides the great leads.
I talked about his girlfriend before and I really enjoyed her presence and although she is supposed to be seen as this annoying harpy who is supposed to be booted out after the first third of the film, but she was different for me. She was actually nice and quite entertaining.
Another thing was the lightness of it. A lot of rom-coms have this heaviness surrounding it that weighs it down, but this was different. It was sweet, funny and fresh. A flick I highly recommend for a date night, stay in movie day, or if you just want to see a nice movie.
