“No, I’m a middle child. I always think the really good moments are happening to someone else.” – Gwyn
Number of Times Seen – Twice (15 May 2001 and 16 Jun 2021)
Brief Synopsis – A woman begins to doubt her impending marriage after having discussions with family and friends about their difficult relationships.
My Take on it – This is a fun movie t watch even though it is far too depressing and seemingly inaccurate about relationships.
The cast is superb and Sarah Jessica Parker is perfect in the lead role just a few short years before her rise to stardom in the relationship arena.
The dialogue is great to listen to even if it sounds a big implausible the way that all of these characters seem to be bored with their respective relationships.
The supporting cast is great with Mia Farrow, Gil Bellows, Paul Mazursky, Antonio Banderas, Kevin Pollack, Carla Gugino, Jeremy Piven, Donal Logue and Naomi Campbell all doing nice jobs with their respective characters.
The film has a relatively bleak look at relationships and love and tries to claim that this is the reality of it all and that drags things down a bit since most people expect more upbeat themes in a comedy about romance.
The story does a fine job juggling the various characters stories while keeping their connections to one another firmly in place throughout.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – If you’re a Woody Allen fan, you’d swear this film was written and directed by him. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
