Product Description

Amazon.ca

Substitute "Gals" for "Girls" and you might mistake this for one of those romantic-comedy trifles they cranked out during World War II. Nothing could be further from the truth, though the film does have a lot to say about modern romance, and you'll laugh--while also gasping--frequently as the film unreels over a riveting hour and a half.

Two very different but equally smashing young women find themselves sharing the sidewalk outside a Soho apartment. Both blond Carla (Heather Graham, pre-Boogie Nights) and the dark-haired Lou (Natasha Gregson Wagner, daughter of Natalie Wood) are waiting for the same guy, an actor named Blake (Robert Downey Jr.), who--unbeknownst to either--has been sleeping with both of them for the past year. They break into Blake's pad and trade can-you-beat-that? anecdotes of his duplicity while waiting for him to show. Show he eventually does, and the mind games begin.

All three players are terrific, with Wagner enjoying a slight edge over indie veteran Graham because her character is fiercer and she's a new screen presence. But it's Downey who rules, partly because director James Toback wrote the script in direct response to seeing his old pal (Downey had starred in his 1987 movie The Pick-Up Artist) in a jail-house news feed after his first well-publicized arrest on drug charges. Actually, Downey's most amazing scene--a long soliloquy in front of a mirror--was largely improvised; it's a passage of monumental self-deception, self-revelation, and sheer genius. As exasperating as it is compelling, Two Girls and a Guy is one of the most provocative films of the '90s. --Richard T. Jameson

I watched this movie through once and hit play again as soon as the dvd finished spinning back to the main menu. It's been years, if ever, since I did that with any movie. Considering that some of the scenes were obviously filmed when they'd barely had a chance to read through the lines, it says a lot for the successful emotional imagery in this movie.
You've probably seen plot synopses (or will if you scroll down) and seen plenty of zero-star reviews. If you decide to see this movie, be prepared for a few scenes that really do look amateurish. They're beatuifully shot and all the production values are spot-on, but Heather Graham and Natasha Gregson Wagner just aren't those rare gifted actors who can walk in and give a perfect performance after a day or two of rehearsal. Robert Downey *is*, though.
In the scenes with Downey, Graham and Wagner seem to wake up a little bit and show enough assuredness to really hit their lines. All the dialog is interesting -- provocative or funny -- but some of the readings clunk, especially in the early going. But Downey improvises, sings, plays piano, and hits all kinds interesting emotional changes. His soliloquy from Hamlet is so good that you will understand perfectly well why Mel Gibson was willing to mount a production of Hamlet with him at the Taper Forum (L.A.) even though Downey couldn't get insured at the time. And Gibson took a bath on it when Downey got arrested, and all he said to the press was "you should have seen him in readings...good enough to break your heart." Or words to that effect. Man, that would have been a Hamlet to see.
This movie really does its job when it finally gets moving.

Interesting movie. Downey plays a textbook sociopath. Judging from the reviews, he could have easily become President with a 60+ approval rating. Would have made Bubba quite proud with the women quite sympathetic - as is typical for those with antisocial disorder, i.e. their charisma, compulsive lying, risk taking behavior, etc. Drug abuse may have been involved - most likely during the scripting and/or acting. There are times when the actresses fall out of character and seem a bit lost - but their roles are less well-defined than Downey's. Downey does a great job of acting ... assuming that he was acting and not just showing us a true side of himself in between stints at drug rehab. Basically, all three have serious emotional and self-esteem issues and are advised to seek immediate psychiatric counseling or some other form of quackery. Then again, in Hollywood, I suppose this kind of behavior is quite acceptable and the norm. Most likely the source material for this script came from actual psychotherapy sessions with the female actresses playing composite roles of headshrinks and family members. Again, very typical in Hollywood....
Overall, an interesting - but somewhat uneven - movie. It's the kind of movie you enjoy watching once, but then will never watch again unless forced to at gunpoint. Huh? What? Word salad is good brain food. Lithium makes the voices go away. Sleep....

In case you got confused by all the controversial reviews...and can't decide to spend 84 minutes of your time on this film, here are some suggestions. DON'T WATCH IT IF: 1. you tend to pick movies with stylish cinematography that enhances dramatic or spectacular scenes; 2. you prefer movies with twists and turns woven into an elaborate screenplay; 3. you expect some sizzling scenes from the title or the NR-17 rating; 4. you are currently savoring your first love or consider yourself a hopelessly romantic person. But DON'T MISS IT IF: 1. you really enjoy dark comedy whether it's an indie or some Hollywood rare bird; 2. you love witty, sassy, sarcastic dialogue, and don't have a problem with profanities; 3. you readily accept any ludicrous circumstance as a natural facet of life; 4. you realize that it's common for couples to talk only on the surface about issues they're afraid to cope with, until a certain point where they must spill the beans to save the relationship or get it over with... Well, did I miss something? Oh yeah, 3 of my 4 stars go to Robert Downey Jr., simply because I believe any other actresses can carry the roles of Heather Graham and Natasha G. Wagner but nobody can do RDJr 's. He's really one of a kind.

The title explains the problem in this risky film. Simply put, two women meet while waiting for their respective boyfriends who, they quickly ascertain, is one and the same, a New York actor. They lie in wait for him in his loft as he returns from a job in LA. First one, then both women proceed to impel him to reveal and explain his deception and insist on forcing him to identify truth and meaning. With the exception of one sexual scene in which both actors retain their clothing but which required 14 edits to get it down to an R rating, the action largely consists of changes in the wind of the dialogue, with segues often provided by telephone calls to and from unseen characters. So it goes for 90 minutes.
For the most part, the characters command attention, making the 90 minutes pass without dragging. This essentially comes off like a staged play, not a flaw in itself necessarily but the filmmaker invested energy in the concept and characters, not in actual filming techniques that might better define this as a cinematic art work apart from the drama. The setting is a stunning loft that holds attention as much as the characters; it adds conceptual commentary and allows for some interesting blocking-but a stage play could have replicated it and made similar use.
Robert Downey, Jr., gives a remarkable performance as the guy lost in his deceptions. Natasha Gregson Wagner completely owns her part and takes it to the core and back. The motivation of Heather Graham's character is not always clear though what her character does and says always propels quality changes in the action.
The bottom line: this is a high concept film, smart and creative, but it belongs more to the art house crowd and never breaks free from "Indie" conventions.
