Product Details

Product Description


This well-intentioned but strangely cold tale concerns an emotionally repressed Southern belle (Julia Roberts) who separates from her husband (Dennis Quaid) after discovering he is an unabashed philanderer. Pressed by her dominating father (Robert Duvall) into reconciling with her spouse, Roberts's character chafes against so much male control over her destiny. Defended by a fiercely independent sister (a catchy performance by Kyra Sedgwick), the heroine develops the nerve to plot her own course in life while her mother (Gena Rowlands) finds the gumption to throw her own mate out of the house. The script by Callie Khouri (Thelma & Louise) is intelligent but hardly clear, and direction by Lasse Hallström (Once Around) can't keep Khouri's unfocused scenes and uncertain purpose from dissolving like sand castles in the rain. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the 10-12 I watch repeatedly. . . Jan. 28 2004
As a 30-something chick, I have a few romantic comedies and dramas that I have watched so many times I can repeat them line for line. I put them on, if for nothing else, for the background noise. This movie is one of them. The title of the movie says it all; Julia Roberts (Grace) gives the entire town something to talk about when she finds out about her husband's cheating ways. The movie is funny and poignant at the same time, making the viewer re-visit some decisions they made in their lives that got them where they are today. Kyra Sedgwick is absolutely fabulous (much better than in "Singles") and Gena Rowlands is wonderful, as well. Pair that with a great subplot about horse competitions and coming to grip with aging, you've got a great movie that was completely underrated by most critics.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT MOVIE! Dec 24 2001
This is one hilarious movie. I have watched it I know 20 times. I love the actors in this movie. They all put on a stellar performance. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the racial sterotype of the maid in the movie. They could have left that character out, especially since the woman NEVER utters a word. Robert Duvall is classic! He nearly steals the show from Julia and Dennis who also give stellar performances.
Rent or buy this one. YOu won't be disappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Freedom Nov. 9 2001
I enjoyed the movie, because it was very entertaining. I also found it interesting because the issues that were addressed are so real for so many women. So many of us make bad decisions due to family interference and pressure. Even without interference, we cannot predict how a marriage is going to sour in the future. Julia Roberts' character has nothing to be embarassed about. Her husband is the one who should be embarassed. The "friends" who covered up the affair should also be embarassed. Besides, a woman does not need to catch her husband red handed to know that an affair is going on. She may know even before the husband does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia Roberts does it again! Sept. 25 2001
By A Customer
I love Julia Roberts and she has once again proved to me why she is my favortie actress. I was rolling in the floor laughing during this movie. It is the perfect comedy-drama combination. My husband even liked it! It is a good couple movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Something to Talk About Nov. 18 2003
Although Quaid AND Roberts deliver good performances... this movie just plods along and is never clear. We never have a CLEAR reason for her to return to her husband.
Her relationship with her father is unclear---why is she so angry? And if he makes her so crazy, then why work with him then? Some cute moments, sure... the food poisoning, the doctor and the father fighting... but otherwise... yawn Could have been a contender... but it's not
