Romantics will feel their spirits soar in this Marques Houston starrer, which is a genuine and delightful tribute to love.

A film that’s impossible to dislike... no matter how cynically we might try, it follows Houston’s character Jamal who is given three months to find a wife in order to inherit his grandfather's estate.

“It has a twist and the concept is very original and creative,” shares Houston, who not only stars in the piece but wrote and produced the film.

Directed by Chris Stokes, “Will To Love” circles around Jamal Hawkins (Houston). The CEO of a million dollar company, he’s a single and extremely successful businessman whose ailing grandfather is willing to leave everything to him if he finds a wife and gets married before he dies. With just a few months before his grandfather’s impending death, it’s a race against time as Jamal tries, through any means necessary, to find the perfect wife and receive the inheritance. Add a scheming sister, a sexy secretary and an over zealous best friend to the mix and the result is a heart-warming rom-com with plenty of laughs.

“Romantic comedies are the best movies in the world because they make you laugh and make you cry at the same time,” adds Houston who admits to being a romantic. “I love relationships and love being in love and I love romantic movies. They are my favorite.”

Also starring Keshia Knight-Pulliam (who is best known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable on the  "The Cosby Show"), Draya Michele, Shondrella Avery, Valarie Pettiford and Marlon Yates Jr., there are some good laughs to be had, as well as some heartache. With excellent acting from an all-star cast, Black Thomas provides plenty of comic relief as the over zealous best friend who sets up a casting call to find Jamal a perfect match.

There's so much heart and genuine sentiment delivered it's impossible to suppress a smile for the film’s heart is in the right place.

“Being part of this film was a great experience,” adds Houston, a former singer with the group Immature who has had a successful solo career in television and movies. “You always want to walk away from an experience having nothing but positivity. I like to be part of sets where I can work with people that I know. With this movie, we had lots of positive energy and positive vibes and it plays on camera and comes off onscreen.”
Only the most hard-hearted and cynical won't find something endearing in “Will to Love.”

“Will to Love” is out on Digital & DVD.
