Storyline

She's green and eager. He's seasoned and jaded. They're reporters for rival Chicago newspapers assigned to cover the same story. He offers tips and advice; she scoops him. Then, their snappy patter, repartee, and ripostes get romantic even as their competitive juices overflow. Will corrupt scientists at a chemical company whose goats give cancer-causing milk kill the cub and the columnist, or will they escape with their lives and their by-lines to hear wedding bells?

Nick Nolte and Julia Roberts together in the same movie
15 March 2008 | by (The world of artists) – See all my reviews

"I Love Trouble" is an okay romantic comedy with some charm in certain points. But that's all.

As a movie, it is generally watchable (at least during its first half). However, in the second half the movie seems to become way more slow, lame, goofy and with a notorious lack of interest and entertainment. Only the «crazy speed at the rain in the car» scene, the forced wedding scene and the thrilling ending (with some good action) are the good things about the second half. Other than that, not really. Why? Because before the thrilling ending, that sequence starts by taking too long to finally win some "life". Besides, there is a scene in a bar with dancing or country music, which is one of the most boring things for me in a movie. Not to mention that I don't see what's the point of both Peter Brackett and Sabrina Peterson keeping out-scooping each other.

Nevertheless, until the first hour the movie is okay and contains some good humor. Besides, Nick Nolte is great as Peter Brackett and Julia Roberts is not bad as Sabrina Peterson.

Overall, not a great movie, but certainly not as bad as they make it sound.
