When you're in the mood for fluff, this is good stuff
15 June 1999 | by strat-8See all my reviews

This is almost a "screwball comedy", but not quite. The pacing is slower. The characters do and say silly things, but only after careful deliberation. Everyone in this movie is so cute you want to rub noses with them. No knee-slappers, but lots of chuckles and smiles. This is a good movie. This is a nice movie. It has a happy ending, which is rare these days. Bowie's acting was competent but unremarkable. I think it was nice to see a "steady-eddie" in the role. It's almost a conventional story with trappings of a farce. The audience knows it a farce. The players know its a farce. The players know that the audience knows its a farce. Therefore we all enjoy ourselves.
