On Demand movie highlights

Love Is All You Need½

(Comcast Movie Collections: All New Movies) Love is not all that Danish director Susanne Bier’s rom-com needs; a less generic story and genuine characters would help, too. It’s a rehash of the trite tale of lonely souls who, despite initial friction, realize that they are made for each other. Layered performances by Pierce Brosnan and Trine Dyrholm and the Sorrento landscape can’t overcome an uninspired screenplay. In English and Danish with subtitles. (R; runs through Dec. 10)

The Notebook ½

(Encore on Comcast) A sudser about young lovers in 1940s North Carolina is frequently interrupted by trips to a modern-day nursing home, in which James Garner reads the romantic tale to Gena Rowlands. This is two movies, one dubiously jury-rigged to the other — like “On Golden Pond” lashed to some young-adult romance. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play the WWII-era couple. (PG-13; runs through Dec. 26)

Out of Africa

(Comcast Free Movies) A big, gorgeous, go-for-broke Hollywood romance about a Danish baroness (Meryl Streep) and her elusive lover (Robert Redford) against exotically photographed African backgrounds. (PG; runs through Jan. 9)
