Review: BBC iPlayer Funny Valentines – Romesh Ranganathan: Rom Com

Romesh Ranganathan’s short film seems to have taken its inspiration from Dapper Laughs. Ranganathan plays a geeky guy on a first date at a bowling alley getting advice from his laddish alter ego, also played by RR, who mocks him for being such a hopeless nerd and suggests he try a bit more banter. Of course, apart from the premise Rom Com is not remotely like Dapper Laughs. This is actually funny, as we see how the date went in flashback alongside a nice montage of previous dates – RR, by the way, can do a mean robot dance.
