Quotes

Harry Dobbs: Look, just let him go. Wipe him out of your memory. Whatever you do, don't be jealous. You'll... you'll start hurting yourself. You'll feel guilty. Your hair. You'll... you'll cut your hair... and I kind of like it the way it is.

Decent low-key comedy.
22 June 2004 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I saw this film referred to as a comedy, but I hadn't remembered it as such when I first saw it some years ago. I suppose that it is, but it is funny in a wry sort of way, never a laugh out loud way. I don't know where Tom Berenger got that gravelly voice for this movie, but it seems to fit the part okay. Elizabeth Perkins was lovely and good as an angst-filled gal trying to be a private I. It was interesting to see Neil Young in a small acting role. He did OK. It makes me wonder how hard acting really is. Anne Archer was so totally gorgeous, I almost didn't realize how ridiculous her character was. This ended up being a pretty enjoyable film, if you don't go into it with unrealistic expectations. Grade: B
