And since once again it's 3am and I'm awake

You all get a movie description review. Cause I'm browsing Hulu and I need something to fall back to sleep too.

This has to be the least appealing sounding movie description ever written

They're in their 20s. He works in a video store; he's eager, chatty, sleeps in his car. She rents adult films, looks disheveled, rarely speaks. He chats her up, she brushes him off. He takes her address from store records and contrives to run into her. He rings her doorbell; she tells him to go away. He invents a story of a great-aunt who's died; she lets him in but holds a butcher knife between them. So it goes. He presses for a relationship; she ignores him, insults him, or yells. He's persistent, inviting her out, cooking, washing her hair. Both have demons and, as their natures become more clear, his addictive personality and her sex nausea may be on a collision course
Let's see, you've got an opportunistic stalker who won't take no for an answer. You've got a woman who is either frigid or being slut shamed for her porno viewing. I'm not sure which (or maybe it's both) and oh look, it's a comedy. A fucking romantic comedy.
