I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this delightful movie finally released on dvd. It is one of my all time favorites and I had been waiting for years to finally see it released on dvd. I was a little disappointed that there are no extras whatsoever, but hey at least I got the movie.
Anyway it is a "Chick Flick" comedy that a guy can like. Yes it is a light, but very entertaining movie about how the lives of three "opposites" intersect; Sam the cultured, pseudo-artsy, wannabee Chef, Ellen the disillusioned wife looking for her own space and Brian the Stockbroker party animal. Will the lives of these three people remain separate or will circumstances allow them to meet, even though they are never at the apartment on the same days? This is a nice film with a clever story and script. Only in the Big Apple, I suppose, would you find folks willing to rent a place for only two nights a week. The cast is terrific, with Broderick, especially, giving a very funny and touching performance. As for the costumes, sets and production values, they are great, resulting in a movie that looks mighty nice. If you are a romantic comedy fan, you can't miss this one! Its fresh plot elements and well-drawn characters make it a welcome find in the world of light-hearted love stories. Yet, even if you are not a regular romcom viewer, the film still has some funny situations and universal themes that make it a diverting watch for most anyone.
