An yank jock discovers the masculine thrill of historic Florentine soccer once his girlfriend dumps him in Evan Oppenheimer’s yawningly standard tho’ superficially polished “Lost in Florence.” Shot in an exceedingly Florence that’s ne’er been therefore devoid of tourists (either Oppenheimer isn’t smart with crowds, or extras value too much), this romantic drama for the most part void of drama sees the hunky lead, compete with lots of torn shirt or bare-chested desirability by Brett physicist (“Agents of SHIELD”), get his life back heading in the right direction through sport and therefore the love of a attractive Italian woman – despite the fact that, as we’re perpetually told, Italian ladies area unit troublesome. Bland even for the armchair individual, “Lost” is as inoffensive as a picture-souvenir book, and equally forgettable.
