There are two sides to every relationship... Don't trust either of them.
A romantic comedy. Michael Keaton and Geena Davis are speechwriters for competing political campaigns. Witty and amusing for the political junkies amongst us.
i love you geena davis, but why the carrots and marshmallow creme combo? ew?
Playing off the real life couple of James Carville (Democrat) and Mary Matalin (Republican), two high level speech writers from opposite sides of Political campaign meet and fall in love, despite their differences. I'm not sure why they knocked them down to senate races since in real life both were instrumental in getting their respective parties into the White House.
I wasn't expecting much from this one, and it's not great art by any means, but it ended up being charming and more fun than I was anticipating. Someone should tell that Michael Keaton to stop being so likeable.
This one's not going to win any awards, and it's probably not anyone's favorite film, but I had more fun than I was expecting to and that's not nothing.
IF this had starred two less charismatic actors, then I would understand the result, but how you make Davis and Keaton boring is beyond me.
Geena Davis is a speech writer for a Democratic candidate and Michael Keaton is a speech writer for the opposing Republican candidate. They fall in love after they meet in a hotel. When they first meet, they don’t know who’s who until they meet at a but they must try to find some way to keep people from finding out about their affair. Christopher Reeve is Davis’ ex-fiance, who is doing a report about the upcoming election. Bonnie Bedelia from Die Hard is supposed to be Keaton’s ex-wife, who’s working on the election. It’s supposed to be a huge surprise but it’s so telegraphed from the start. It’s not really a spoiler since they tell you about it right away…
A fitfully charming attempt at a screwball comedy that would be better if the screenwriters had figured out a sharper way to handle the political backdrop they don't want to take a side in, or how to avoid romantic comedy cliches. Keaton comes off a bit more smarmy than charming at times, but that's probably just my mega-crush on Geena Davis talking.
Une comédie romantique agréable, un peu lourde parfois, mais tout de même charmante.
The first half is far better then the second clichéd half. Movie has an amazing cast and is a decent look at two people that fall for each other, when their jobs are meant to keep them apart.
Davis has never looked more gorgeous imo. Her and Keaton are really good with each other, especially when they begin to feud. There is a scene when they discover who they really are in a kid's classroom, and their bickering was hilarious.
I felt Reeve was kind of wasted and his relationship with David seemed forced.
Seeing this reminds me why Hollywood needs more Keaton.
I love this type of breezy romantic comedy, and this is a great one. Really good, funny performances from Michael Keaton and Geena Davis, two speech writers who fall for each other, before realising they write for opposing politicians in a big campaign. Christopher Reeve is great as an old boyfriend who has such a hilarious love for himself, but it's kind of endearing because he doesn't realise it. Keaton and Davis have terrific chemistry and the script is really good, so their scenes together are just a joy. It doesn't have too much substance, and it's a very typical plot, but the three lead performances make it endlessly enjoyable. Plus it has Batman and Superman, I love this movie.
Nota = 5
Michael Keaton and Geena Davis shine in a surprisingly sweet and smart comedy with a backdrop that, unfortunately, isn't used to its full potential and makes the movie drag too often.
Proof positive that the hardest genre to get right is romantic comedy...by misfiring at just about every turn.
