Product Description

Jennifer Aniston stars in this sly romantic comedy as Nina, a young woman who falls in love with her new roommate, George, (Paul Rudd) even though he's gay and loves her purely as a friend. When Nina becomes pregnant, she realizes she'd rather raise her child with George than with her boyfriend - a decision that forces the threesome to explore the fine line between love, sex and friendship.

Amazon.ca

In this ultra-hip, multilayered comedy, triangles and emotional imbroglios take on a new meaning. Well, at least they try. Jennifer Aniston plays a straight woman who falls in love with a gay man (Paul Rudd). She invites him to move in with her just hours after they meet. As their friendship progresses, she learns she is pregnant, and wants Rudd to act as daddy to her newborn, much to the consternation of her overbearing boyfriend (John Pankow).

The film takes itself too seriously, although there is some genuine emotion buried in Wendy Wasserstein's clunky script. It is not that the relationships are unbelievable; it is that the story lurches forward from one stilted setup to another. And unfortunately, characters are motivated by unknown forces to take on major life changes without explanation. More fortunate are two very likable performances by Rudd, who wisely plays this without cute, homosexual tics, and a most perky and appealing Aniston. Supporting actor Nigel Hawthorne walks away with the film as a gay drama critic who imparts a few important life lessons as he learns one of his own. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Object Of My Affection is a great Flick. I am so excited it's finally on DVD. This movie takes place in New York City with our former Twin Tower buildings as the beautiful backdrop. The movie is about a women named Nina (Jennifer Aniston) who falls in love with her roommate George (Paul Rudd), but there is one problem ... he is gay. George decides to move out and move in with Nina after his boyfriend Joley tells him he is seeing another guy. Nina who has a boyfriend finds herself falling in love with George and soon she finds out she is pregnant but decides she wants to raise the child with George instead. George finally starts to fall for Nina, but after a weekend trip with his x-boyfriend Joley, George soon finds himself falling for a guy named Paul, and soon there is a decision that forces George to decide between Nina and Paul. I know it sound like a too much drama, but this is a movie worth watching, I will not say anymore other than this is a Great movie that will make you laugh and bring tears to your eyes as well. Im glad to see The Object Of My Affection has made it to DVD. Buy it it is a great flick that breaks down the walls of sexuality as you can not choose who you can fall in love with, true love just happens. (...)

2.0 out of 5 stars Presents Some Moments of Affection April 2 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This movie starts as an hip romantic comedy, turns into a serious drama, becomes melodramatic and soap opera-ish, gets into comedy territory again for a while and finally delivers a contrived and slightly unrealistic Hollywood ending.
"The Object of My Affection" has as many twists and turns as a rollercoaster ride, switching and redefining the status quo a thousand times. Some moments are genuine and heartfeld, others have a sitcom humorous feel and at times it gets overboard with high levels of sugar and sappyness. The story is about the relationship between two young adults, a gay teacher (Paul Rudd) and a modern NY girl (Jennifer Aniston). Beginning as a tight friendship, their connection then appears to turn into something more deep, and from this point on the plot delivers a lot of subplots and new characters.
The acting is overall good and the movie tries to touch some serious issues, but unfortunately the story is so contrived that the result is just uneven and not very impressive. The pacing isn`t the best as well, delivering a lot of slow and dull moments that go nowhere. Despite these flaws, "The Object of My Affection" still has some entertainment value and a couple of interesting scenes, even if it`s just another average movie.
With a few improvements this material could rise a bit and become more remarkable, but as it is it`s not too good neither too bad.
Watchable enough.

What most of you probably don't know is that this movie is "very loosely" based on a book by Stephen McCauley. In other words the book and the movie are very very different. Read more
