I thought the premise was exploitative and the film should have been entitled "Mr. November." People would have been justifiably appalled if a film had been made about a male character who found a different woman to boff every month and then dumped her. I found myself wondering if the story was a revenge fantasy penned by a woman who had been wrongfully dumped by some cad. I also found myself feeling bad for Reeves' character and wanting to choke Theoren's. Then I found myself wanting to choke me for making the poor choice to watch this movie. Next time I want to see Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theoren together, I'll watch The Devil's Advocate, which I would give three stars.
If you want heartbreaker type romance, watch Love Story instead. Myself, I think I'll watch Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I'd rather laugh than cry anytime.
This isn't really a date film, a film you would go see with your boyfriend, as they would most likely end up slagging off Keanu's performance and then drooling over Charlize. This is a film you would go see with your girlfriends, or sit at home and watch alone, so you don't have to be ashamed of crying!
Both actors are great in this film, and both don't really have to stretch themselves much, as they've played these characters in the past. Some people will slag off Keanu's performance, but these people are just jealous.
There are a few very nice topless shots of Keanu, showing off his infamous scar on his torso and since it was around the same time as Matrix, he's still very much muscular and bulked up - gorgeous. Although not quite as bulked up as he was for Speed, just lots of definition.
It's not obvious to start with that Sarah (Charlize's character) is ill - sorry to spoil it, but if you've heard about this film, you'll know it's a tearjerker. She seems scatterbrained, and extremely dizzy, and likes dogs. As the film progresses, you notice little bits and pieces, and her face looking more and more drawn, before it gets discovered, by Nelson (Keanu's character). This film must have been hard for Keanu to film, as it's about cancer and a terminal illness.Read more ›
From Reeves' excrutiatingly awful "Hot Dog" presentation to his tear-of-pain inducing final denoument with Theron at the end this movie is class A laughs from beginning to end.
The juxtaposition of one of the worst, most wooden and lifeless "actors", Reeves, with one of the most endearing and lively actresses, Theron, gives one the idea that maybe the director is completely clueless. That or he wanted to simply make Reeves look as bad as possible. If that was the director's intention then he succeeded admirably.
It also has one of the possibly most embarassing actor scenes of all time when Jason Isaacs completely humiliates himself in a green sequined dress.
What a joke of a movie. Definitely an excellent choice for an evening of MST3King with some good friends.
People have pointed out that the movie was similar to "Autumn in New York", and it was. See one, you've seen the other. Both films were extremely "flat" in the way the storylines and character progression were handled.
There were many aspects of this film that I found disappointing: 1) an over-used plot; 2) the story really went nowhere; 3) as someone else said, every cheesy cliche in the book and 4) it was completely unbelievable. People grabbing perfect strangers off the street to come and live with them for a month? Please.
I didn't get the clothes either. Were they supposed to be bohemian? And what was with the scarves all the time? By the third scene during which she fiddled with a scarf, I wanted to strangle Charlize Theron's character with it!
Some movies have a point. This one didn't. Though it was worth it just to see Michael Rosenbaum in a dress.
