By gosh I think I wrote it myself

  • May 3, 2001
Pros: Makes you feel good to watch it.

Cons: Soooo predictable

The Bottom Line: If you are fond of the leads, then it is worth it to see their creditable performances.

Plot Details: This opinion reveals no details about the movie's plot.

I had never heard of this film before yesterday. My husband picked it up at the movie store and brought it home. I generally don't pay too much attention because I'm banging away on this here computer, but this movie DID engage my attention pretty quickly. I spent more time watching it than playing spades.

By reading the movie case, it was pretty easy to predict just about everything that happened in this movie. Sometimes that can be a good thing, if you for sure want something that has a nice "feel good" lift to it. It should be labelled that way.

Paltrow and Affleck give pleasing performances and there are lots of really significant looks between them. The acting is very believable and the dialogue seems fairly well written. The story line though, is TOO predictable. I was calling the shots early on, and my husband would turn around and say "I think that you wrote this one." Even so, it kept my attention throughout and I felt like it was worth the watch.

Would I watch it again? Probably, but not for a while.


Suitability For Children: Suitable for Children Age 9 - 12
