Everyone has a personal definition of what love is. In Love Chronicles: Secrets Revealed, several people talk about their troubled relationships and how they overcame various obstacles and found love.
Most of the stories center on a radio station and the female callers to its KLUV radio show. There’s the successful career woman who was caught cheating on her husband with her young boy toy (played by Sticky Fingaz), the churchgoing woman who hangs in with her philandering gangsta boyfriend (played by rapper Nipsey Hussle) until he turns a new leaf, and the woman who dates all the wrong guys — a pimp, a selfish athlete, a married man — until she finds Mr. Right. Then there’s the radio executive whose wife (Vivica A. Fox) feels neglected because he works so much, all while they both feel stress from their inability to conceive a child.
There’s no major plot, only the smaller individual storylines about love. Some of these couples were pretty unbelievable and their happy endings far-fetched. But I’m not sure how serious a movie with several fart jokes is supposed to be taken anyway. That said, the stories were heartwarming and cute.
Bonus material includes outtakes and the featurette “What Is Love?,” in which various cast members talk about what love is to them.
