This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!
Number of Times Seen – At least Twice (Cable in the 90’s and 10 May 2020)
Brief Synopsis – Two reporters who have differing opinions on just about every issue end up falling in love despite having a popular TV show together, but can their love survive through it all?
Bottom Line – Amazing way to present the same story twice from the different views of the two main characters. Kevin Bacon and Elisabeth Perkins are perfect in these roles and have such amazing chemistry together. The story plays out really well and allows us to see how men and women view things so differently. The story is quite poignant in its depiction of relationships and come across so realistic throughout.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The genesis of this film was generated from a night out in Paris, France where the film’s two directors, Marisa Silver and Ken Kwapis, were both telling the story of how the pair had gotten together. They noticed that their stories were different in perspective, so they decided to make a movie based on this high concept, and shortly afterwards, contacted the film’s Screenwriter Brian Hohlfeld to develop the movie, then pitched the picture to Paramount, who gave them the go-ahead.

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
