Storyline

Alex and Erica Boyer's marriage is in a crisis: job and wife bore Alex. When Erica has an accident that has her staying in a wheel chair for some time, it changes their life: Alex meets Erica's young therapy assistant Lisa and gets the idea that she'd be the end of his boredom and he could start over with her. However Lisa's boyfriend feels what's going on and isn't idle. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

The worst and most compelling performance ever
16 June 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This movie is a trifle, kind of on the side of Annie Hall. But Almost You contains probably the worst acting performance ever committed to film, that of Marty Watt, who plays Kevin. This "actor" plays an up and coming "actor" and if you want to have a laugh riot, rent this movie just for this performance. I say this with all due respect.
