Synopsis[edit]

Over Thanksgiving break, while his roommate is away from campus, pretty boy Andrew (Michael Muhney) sleeps with Shayna (Mary Kay Cook), his roommate Joe's (Jim Slonina) dream girl. When Shayna starts a relationship with Joe, attempting to make Andrew jealous, it causes a rift in the boys' friendship.

Reception[edit]

The A.V. Club panned Love 101 and commented that it was "paced like a cement mixer, and while the actors move through the paces of some tired gags between moments of self-reflection, you might find yourself studying the wall decorations."[3] Scott Weinberg of eFilmCritic.com also criticized the film as they felt that it got "Points for trying, but this flick gets its inspirations from movies not all that hot to begin with, and then simply rehashes them point by point."[4] The Daily Herald gave a more positive review, stating that "What "Love 101" and its virtual all-Chicagoland cast lack in polish, they make up for with a generous supply of sincerity."[5]
