Product Description


Opposites attract in this conventional but refreshingly unpredictable romantic comedy. New York nightclub designer (Matthew Perry, from television's Friends) is in Las Vegas to supervise the construction of a new project when he meets a fiery Mexican beauty (Salma Hayek). It's lust at first sight, and their one-night stand takes an unexpected turn when she shows up three months later to announce that she's pregnant. They're determined to do right for each other, so they get married in a Vegas chapel with an Elvis impersonator as their witness. Then comes the hard part--trying to figure out if they're actually compatible. The plot complications are mostly familiar, but Perry and Hayek throw some bright sparks as their initial bliss turns to more realistic concerns for family and future. Along the way there's some sharp dialogue and a few good laughs to give this all-too-human comedy an enjoyable spin. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Insightful July 5 2003
While Matthew Perry and all of his supporting cast certainly make this comedy fun and entertaining, it is also surprising how well written it is.
Generally, there seem to be 2 basic formulas for romance stories in movies. The first formula is for a couple to start off disliking each other and end up loving each other. The second is for the couple to meet, be tested by an adversity, overcome it and live happily ever after. And one thing these two formulas share in common too often is the rush to have sex. That's where this movie comes in. It turns these formulas on their ear.
In a way, this movie makes fun of the cliche' formulas of romantic movies.
While trying not to give anything away, "Fools Rush In" reverse engineers the process of building a lasting relationship. In so doing, I couldn't help be think about my own relationships and wonder if I've taken all the steps and covered all the bases myself.
The movie addresses in a delightfully funny and entertaining way some of the many of the major decisions couples need to work out, such as: how they will mitigate cultural differences, how they will work out career conflicts, where they should live, when to have children, what to do with well-meaning but medling friends and family...
This really is a surprisingly insightful romantic comedy; I have no regrets for purchasing it and I doubt you will either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming story but left me with a question. Jan. 24 2004
By Ivonna
This is one of the most charming "chick-flicks" because of the sweetness of Salma Hayek's character. Matthew Perry brings the humor. The music is very uplifting. Many of the songs can also be found on a CD called "Ultra-Lounge Volume 5". The two characters start their relationship physically first, then try to fall in love later. Along the way, they question what is meant to be. They encounter each other's families and friends and explore their likes and dislikes and the result is comical and endearing. What I am wondering is for those who are not happily married, does this movie encourage a physical relationship outside of marriage? I have seen the movie but still am not sure. On the surface, it seems like it doesn't. But what would be the end result of watching this - would a person be more or less likely to start a relationship physically? With the ending the way it was, it might make some younger viewers think true love might happen that way and end up leaving them with heartache. I'd like to hear more reviews on this aspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute, Sweet, thoughful romantic comedy March 27 2004
By A Customer
I thought this was such a cute movie! It shows that sometimes opposites do attract! During one seen, Salma talks to Matthew about their differences and the prejudices that both families have with each other while telling a story. This is something that every body will love, including guys!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fools make movie. Jan. 4 2003
By A Customer
Just another awful romantic comedy, that's all. This one's about a New York architect (Matthew Perry) who is temporarily stationed in Las Vegas in order to oversee the building of a nightclub. One night, he meets Salma Hayek on line for the restroom in a casino. They enjoy an assignation. She disappears, suddenly uncomfortable for no clear reason. But she suddenly turns up 3 months later, pregnant and pouting about it. They get married. Then they start fighting. . . . Does that about cover it? Perry and Hayek were both inexperienced as lead actors in major motion pictures at the time of this movie's release (1997). Unsurprisingly, it's Hayek -- you know, the one with more talent and ambition -- who comes off much better. Her natural charisma and ravishing beauty eclipses her co-star's entire presence. Oh, I sat through the whole film . . . but then, I'd sit through a 2-hour infomercial if Salma Hayek was in it. That's not a recommendation for a general audience, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD Sept. 16 2001
By Lawyeraau TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This is a delightful romantic comedy. Matthew Perry is a charming, self-effacing leading man. Salma Hayek is a most fetching and winsome leading lady. Strong performances by the supporting cast help make this a most enjoyable movie.
Alex Whitman (Matthew Perry) lives in New York and has a high powered job as a field agent for a builder that specializes in the construction of night clubs. He is sent to Las Vegas to supervise new construction. While there, he meets a fiery, latin beaty, Isabel Fuentes (Salma Hayek), with whom he has a very memorable one night stand. This is totally out of character for both of them. In fact, she is so embarrassed by what happened, that she sneaks out of his house first thing in the morning. Before he even knows it, she is gone, never to be heard from again, until she shows up on his door step three months later to announce that she is pregnant with his baby.
Alex tells her that he supports her right to choose. Isabel chooses to have the baby. She asks nothing from him other than he meet her family, so that it is not such a shock when she announces that she is pregnant. He agrees to do so. He meets her traditional, Mexican-American family and is taken by their warmth, a quality that is sorely lacking in his family. He rarely sees his own family, except for the obligatory holidays, while Isabel meets hers once a week for dinner.
Alex and Isabel fall in love and have a quickie marriage ceremony performed in Las Vegas. Naturally, as they are now husband and wife. they move in together. Then reality sets in. They contend with cultural difference, with pain in the you know what in-laws, and with the every day adjustments necessary, when living with someone one does not, as yet, know. Then, the trust that had developed is violated, and they each go their own separate ways.
What happens with the baby? Does the marriage survive? Watch the movie and find out. The experience will be an enjoyable one.
