When Candy Connor (Leigh Zimmerman) and Randy Bush (Michael Brandon), celebrated Californian self-help gurus, come to London to launch their bestselling book ‘Are You Ready For Love? How To Find Love in Three Days’, they choose three single Brits for a publicity stunt to prove that their advice works. Luke (Ed Byrne), Barry (Andy Nyman) and Melanie (Lucy Punch) are the three unlucky-in-love hopefuls who pay good money to take part in Candy and Randy’s promotional promise.
Luke, a self-confessed ‘Monster Lover’, is a 38 year old aging pop star who relies on his status as a one hit wonder to attract one night stands. He is in desperate need of help to find a real relationship.
Barry, a 35 year old Jewish dentis, is a perfectionist with high expectations for his perfect partner. He turns to Candy and Randy in a last attempt to avoid his domineering mother’s match-making scheme.
Melanie, a 32 year old photographer, is a hopeless romantic looking for ‘The One’. Always seeming to find the wrong one, she believes that Candy and Randy will help her to find true love.
These three single Brits have just 72 hours to find love by following the advice given to them by the Californian gurus and their new book. Throughout this three day period, their every move is filmed by roving cameras who are documenting their success for a promotional TV program to be shown at a press conference after the three days are up.
Are You Ready For Love? is an exciting and original British comedy which takes us on a roller-coaster ride through the vibrant London dating scene. We witness the hilarious consequences which result from Luke, Barry and Melanie’s quest for love following Candy and Randy’s dubious ‘fail-safe guide to instant romance’. With stunning locations, endearing characters and a truly feel-good spirit Are You Ready For Love? is a film you can’t help falling for.
