Without access to a theater this weekend, I resigned myself to watching “The Broken Hearts Gallery” on demand. It is a movie I would have reviewed back in September had the theaters in New York City been open. It turns out that the movie is a better fit for on demand than it ever was for theaters. The theater experience usually promises to force you to the edge of your seat, and this movie lends itself better to sprawled-out bed and couch viewing. It’s a romantic comedy without any, as yet, huge names attached, so it was never going to make much of an impact at the box office. If the goal is lighthearted, inoffensive home viewing, however, then it makes a better choice than the many failed action movies that clog up most on demand menus.
