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.
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.
This is such a sweet romance movie from the 90s. Gotta love Michael Keaton's wit in this, he gets to be himself which is great.
Decent rom-com, a little schmaltzy.
Batman and Superman try and win the girl. Not the best movie but I love all the actors in this. (DVD)
