Exclusive: Thora Birch & Chris Klein star in new The Competition clip

Relationships barely play out in real life as they do in the movies. It’s never cute and whimsical, and more often than not there’s more booze involved than need be. But I guess that's why we go to the movies, and why there’s always an audience for movies like THE COMPETITION. Starring Thora Birch (AMERICAN BEAUTY) and Chris Klein (AMERICAN PIE), this rom-com pits two potential lovers in a relationship contest that could lead to a romance of their very own, or something like that. We here at JoBlo have an exclusive clip for the flick featuring Klein happening upon (stalking?) Birch, which proves if you want to talk to someone all you need to do is wait for them at the park and then lunge out at them spewing nonsense. 

Here is the full synopsis:

Lauren (Thora Birch, American Beauty) becomes the voice of a generation when, after one too many bad boyfriends, she launches a blog promoting “The PIG Theory.” The PIG Theory insists you can enjoy all that romance has to offer, but only for six months. At this "Point of Infidelity and Guilt," you must break up before your mate becomes unfaithful. Lauren is a beacon of light for her followers, but Lauren's sister, Gena (Claire Coffee, “Grimm”), is concerned. She introduces Lauren to the perfect man: Calvin (Chris Klein, American Pie) and they hit it off so an idea strikes: A competition! Calvin will pick five friends who have been in a relationship for longer than six months, and Lauren will pick the enchantress to be their downfall. If three out of five cheat, Calvin must walk away. But if three out of five resist temptation, Lauren must shut down her blog and open her heart to Calvin.  Their friends will be the challengers who determine their destiny!

THE COMPETITION arrives in limited theaters and On Demand January 26, 2018.
