Did we all watch the same movie?
27 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't really understand some of the review comments stated in some of the other postings. There are three comments that I would dispute. First, one posting stated that Andrew McCarthy didn't limp or seem to be in any pain at many points in the movie...He must be confused and wasn't watching the same movie that I was watching. Andrew McCarthy wonderfully acted his part and used the proper props and movements of a person who had been severely injured. Even when he finally wore boots, they had to be cut up the side so his swollen feet could fit into them. Secondly a snide remark was made saying that McCarthy and Gunn had a romantic encounter in front of a fireplace in LA in the summer. I don't know how this viewer knew it was summer; everyone in the film (except for the nurses uniforms) wore long sleeves and carried or wore a jacket just as McCarthy did. I didn't know that people in LA wore sweaters over their shirts, jackets, and long sleeves in LA in the summer - this doesn't sound practical so it is reasonable for me to assume that that comment should also be discounted. And finally, one viewer called "Andrew McCarthy the king of bad movies"...I happen to be a big Andrew McCarthy fan...I think he is a great actor and enjoy his movies. He can't help the fact that some viewers are too unintelligent to know what is going on in the movie as has been discussed above and then refer to it as a "bad movie".

If you haven't seen the movie, it is good, entertaining, contains solid acting, and McCarthy's specialty - making love to a woman that most of you need to view as a "how to" video - if you have the attention span to keep your eyes on the movie for that length of time.
