Likable as it gets!!
11 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I realize that Annette O'Toole has had a respectable career, but why didn't she get to be a megastar? She is beautiful, funny, sexy, hot, radiant and not totally unattractive!! Yikes!! She gives the most natural performance I have ever seen in a romantic comedy. And even more shocking, is matched (almost) step for step by Martin Short. After seeing this, that Jiminy Glick shtick is way beneath him. As for the movie, it is an admittedly talky, mainly one set, two character affair, but that's the fun. Crackling, witty dialogue lets the character's (and actor's) personalities shine through (i.e. "my impersonation of Montgomery Clift"). With brief, but yeoman support from Paul Reiser, this is an underrated gem. And did I mention that Annette O'Toole is breathtakingly gorgeous!!! The original movie version's nudity is something to be remembered, but handled so well that it plays much better than the edited for TV versions. Either way, this is entertainment as likable as it gets.
