She's The One
Following the success of his spunky, 1995 directorial debut, The Brothers McMullen, Edward Burns suffers a little sophomore slump with this comedy about a pair of rivalrous brothers who get into bizarre relationships with women in a fierce but immature pursuit of happiness. When they find they both have a complicated interest in the same woman (Cameron Diaz), things come to a head. The film is a little overwritten, undershot, bulky, slow, and static, but it is also funny and inventive--further proof that Burns knows his New York City beat as well as Woody Allen does. With Jennifer Aniston, Maxine Bahns, and John Mahoney. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mr. Fitzpatrick lives near the ocean and owns a boat, wherein the father and brothers visit and go fishing often.
Mickey is an down to earth and likable guy without much ambition who drives a cab. Brother Francis is not so likable. He is a successful stockbroker whose standing joke is that his brother is the only English speaking cab driver in New York.
Francis is pretentious and conniving, the opposite of Mickey, who is easy going and modest. That they were raised by the same parents seems to be a fluke.
Francis also is a cheating husband. He is married to and bored with Renee (Jennifer Aniston), who cannot figure out why Francis never wants to have sex anymore. Francis, nice guy that he is does not want to cheat on his mistress with his wife.
However, the same can't be said for his mistress, Heather (Cameron Diaz) who doesn't even try to hide the fact from Francis that she is sleeping around. The naughty Heather, for the record, was once engaged to Mickey, until he caught her naked asleep with another man in their apartment.
Meanwhile our happy go lucky cab driver, Mickey, surprises everyone when he marries one of his fares, a mere twentyfour hours after meeting her. Her name is Hope (Maxine Bahns) and Mickey and Hope have every intention of making their marriage work, despite what everyone, especially Francis thinks.
And so the stage is set for some clever if not hilarious situations.
This is a comedy, not a rip snortin funny movie but it does have it's clever humorous moments and it's sort of like a fable too, with a lesson to be learned for those paying attention.
As for the plot itself, it was sensible. It focused on relationships --- between brothers, between father & sons, between married couples & between ex-es. I guess the moral fiber was there & the conversations were the backbone of the movie. Maybe the reason why other viewers felt this movie was a bit dragging is because they expected a lot of senseless twists - whether it be funny, sexual or what have you.
Listening is the key to appreciating this film.

the story is good, but sometimes boring. Cameron Diaz acts as weel as always, and Jennifer Aniston too. without Diaz, I rate this movie 3 stars.Published on June 25 2003 by H. Georges
