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.
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)
A romantic comedy that fits fairly snugly in that mold, competing speech writers meet, not knowing that the other is writing for the other campaign and hit it off. Drama ensues.
It's not bad at being that, but it also doesn't really become much more than that. The performances of Geena Davis and Michael Keaton are good, but there's just nothing that really feels like it stands out or sticks with me, and it seemed to have a lot of abrupt jumps and turns that don't seem to be triggered.
Enjoyable for what it is, but not too much more than that.
A rather lame romantic comedy starring two talented actors who appear to be bored stupid throughout the film's entire running time. As a result, the audience are bored too which is a shame as the plot of two rival political speech writers (one Democrat, the other Republican) isn't actually a bad one. It's just poorly executed.
