Every film that has ever been nominated for a Golden Globe Award in any category.
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.
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.
Apesar de faltar química entre Michael Keaton e Geena Davis, "Apenas bons Amigos (Speechless)" ao menos se mostra um divertido passatempo, mesmo com os habituais clichês do gênero.
I just really loved this one.
Filmed in 1994, long before Geena Davis became “President of the United States” on TV, this romantic comedy about speech writing on the campaign trail is a lot of fun. It pokes good fun at the political process, while using lots of irony to bring Julia (Davis) and Kevin (Michael Keaton) together in the “unspoken language of love” (woof woof!). Plenty of miscues and twists of fate make this very watchable, despite a rather slow start.
One other reason to watch this is to see Christopher Reeve as Bob ‘Bagdad’ Freed. I’d almost forgotten he had a screen life between Superman and the fall from his horse. This isn’t his best part, but it’s a good one, demonstrating how well film preserves the memories and abilities of actors we have come to love.
