Enjoyable and rather fun
22 June 2006 | by jim-1225See all my reviews

This is definitely light entertainment, and the story so straight forward that by the end of the movie, all is clear. No replays needed, but I would be very happy to watch it again in a year or two if I'm still around. It's so pleasant not to have the ending twisted simply to make it unpredictable, nor to be hit in the face by a barrage of blasphemies and sexual expletives. (Blasphemies I find particularly offensive, but a small number of relatively mild examples of bad language doesn't faze me in the slightest.)

Alfred Molina (as Cliff) seems an unlikely romantic to me, but it would be hard to find any man uninterested in the attractive and competent character portrayed so well by Helen Slater (as Kim). Heathcote Williams struck me as ideally cast. So, too, did Peter Bowles and Dinsdale Landen who played deliciously stereotyped characters. The slapstick aspect was not overdone, so it was quite amusing when it occurred. The story moved forward without lulls, and although not taxing to the intellect, it held my interest throughout.

As usual, I did look for the DVD in case there was one at a bargain basement price, cheap being necessary for this title, but the search was in vain. Nevertheless, watching it on TV was enjoyable and rather fun.
