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

2.0 out of 5 stars What? June 21 2004
Format:DVD
This movie was stupid. It had a bad plot. It was very pointless. The only good thing about this movie was Robert Downey Jr's acting which was why I gave it 2 stars. The other 2 were good. But The plot...I'm not even gonna' start with the plot. The whole movie was stupid. I also don't get why this got an NC-17 rating. I don't want any dumb reviewer bad mouthing me just cause I don'get why this movie got an NC-17, I'm just wandering why it got it? It doesn't have any nudity or strong sexualy explicit nude scenes or what ever you call it.
Unless if it was for that scene between Jr and Graham then that is dumb.
Over all if you like dumb comedies go and watch it..

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing May 29 2004
Format:DVD
I'm glad we rented this movie instead of purchasing it. Basic flaw was the script - two women discovering they had the same boyfriend could have turned into something clever or even funny. I kept waiting for clever or funny but it never happened. Downey, Graham, and Wagner did the best they could, but the material they had to work was amateurish at best and insipid at worst.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not without weak points Feb. 28 2004
Format:DVD
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.

I do believe this is the most pointless movie ever made....i am a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr. and at some times in this horrible movie his quirkiness did shine through however, it was so boring and besides Downey, the acting was atrocious...i was furious that i wasted a dollar on renting this. I would have much rather had a double cheeseburger from McDonald's. Also i have no idea why every other review praises Natasha Wagner's performance in this. She is by far the worst actor in the movie. She has no emotion in her voice and she is annoying.

1.0 out of 5 stars Was this really a movie? Jan. 2 2004
By J. Best
Format:DVD
Where did this movie go? What took place in the end? Well I sure as heck couldn't tell anyone. Robert Downey Jr. gives the best performance he could, given the watered down script and plot.
Here's the movie in a few quick seconds.
1) Two girls find out they share a boyfriend.
2) They confront him, and all start yelling screaming.
3) One girl has sex with the guy, while other listens.
4) Other girl, who listened offers to date both of them and instead of being a 'couple' they can become a 'triple'.
5) Guy leaves to see his mom, brunette girls also leaves seperately, and blonde girl stays in the guys apartment.
6) Guy comes back crying, due to his mother passing away. Blonde girl comes to console, he sits at piano and play while she rests her head on his shoulder.
CREDITS ROLE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robert Downey's best performance! Nov. 8 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Excellent movie, but this is not the typical Hollywood movie. No action. I can tell you a lot of good things about this movie, but the best thing is that you can see and confirm that Robert Downey Jr. is a fantastic actor. The variety of scenes where he laughs, cries, sings, argues, even performs a Shekespeare's act --they are all excellent. Really funny movie with great acting from Downing!

1.0 out of 5 stars THIS MOVIE IS A BOMB Oct. 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I cannot believe I wasted 90 minutes of my time on this movie.
It was the worst movie I have ever seen. Do not waste your
money or time on this movie. The acting was horrible, and the conversation was pointless. The movie never went anywhere.
I was extremely disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natasha is the kick! Sept. 11 2003
By Tara
Format:DVD
Okay, the movie is kind of boring and Robert Downey Jr.'s character is really annoying and unlikable, but Natasha Gregson Wagner is adorable and sexy. I love watching her in anything and if you fastforward to all her scenes with and without co-star Heather, the film becomes tolerable and even enjoyable. Natasha makes Lou a very vibrant character. The five stars are for Natasha:)
