Jovi & Lou: Review

Jovi & Lou: Review

Jovi (Victoria Strange) and Lou (Trevor Van Uden) are a couple with a lot of responsibility in their hands. They are beings who look over the human race and as they play their games, the fate of the human race is decided.

Thinking they should change things up a little, they challenge each other to change a man’s life and to test him over whether he would do what is right, or commit murder in order to save his wife. So, Lou goes down and becomes the devil on his shoulder while Jovi does what she can to make things right.

Jovi & Lou is a supernatural morality tale written and directed by Terry Spears. Although somewhat of an analogy of God vs the Devil, Jovi & Lou takes something of an agnostic approach to the old-fashioned tale of good vs Evil. However, it does so with a bit of an edge to entice an adult audience.



Unfortunately, it seems that what the filmmakers think of as raunchy and offensive often feels like it’s afraid to go too far. With characters like drug taking preachers and kerb crawling sex offenders, its nothing that the audience wouldn’t have seen before and often with far more shocking content.

Then there’s the morality tale itself and it seems that the filmmakers don’t really know what to make of that either. With the would-be murderer not really taking time to feel remorse or even question the ethics of his actions, neither will the audience. Also, the people he ends up killing are so two dimensional that the question of whether he’s doing the right thing or not may not be all that complicated for the audience.

A low budget movie which is trying to do something different, Jovi & Lou wants to be something memorable, but ends up feeling like an episode of Family Guy that keeps pulling its punches.

Something with a tighter script and a clearer motive for its lead characters may have worked better. Otherwise, Jovi & Lou ends up feeling like a movie which doesn’t know what side to take.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
