Storyline

Gwyn Marcus has always wanted a marriage like her parents. She has just accepted the proposal of her boyfriend Matt, but she has misgivings about their future together. Her fear of commitment grows as she learns of the various affairs that her family is having. With her sister getting married and her brother already married, her mother is growing concerned about Gwyn's being the last single person in the family. But the more she thinks about marriage, the more she must search for the balance between career, marriage and family. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Quotes

Derek: [explaining why he is breaking up with her] Look, it's my fault. I just can't commit to anything in my life.
Gwyn Marcus: Why do you assume that it's you? May be I have a fear of commitment, you know? May be I have the Peter Pan syndrome?
Derek: You can't be a Peter Pan. Only men are Peter Pans.
Gwyn Marcus: Well, actually, most of the great Peter Pans in history were played by women.
Derek: What is that supposed to mean? You're seeing someone else too?

Funny, hip and heartbreaking... no easy feat!
10 December 1999 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies you either hate or love at first sight.

Certainly it has an Allenesque feel to it (It may not be a mere coincidence that Mia Farrow is one of it stars, doing a marvelous send-up of the kind of characters she used to play for Woody, from Hannah to [more closely] Alice Tate), but there's so much more to it than that!

Sarah Jessica Parker is the link in the story, but not necessarily the main knot. Take Antonio Banderas's turn parodying himself and the "suave latino lover" typecasts, or Carla Gugino's bubbly charm, or Barbara Garrick's bravura performance as the too-briefly seen Terri. Of course, good things always may come hand-in-hand with lackluster spots... one of the biggest here? Naomi Campbell sitting pretty and saying "Fuck off" with as much enthusiasm as a laptop computer with a british accent. She is typecast alrigtht, but instead of playing with the possibilities like Banderas did, she just walks by as in a catwalk, but she is remarkably far from fantastic.

Now that brings us to another contrast, for Gil Bellows' performance as Matt, the understated and understanding fiance is nothing short of great. His smile can lit up a room (common knowledge) and yet when he has to unburden his anger and pain he does it in a way that is quiet and convincing. No high drama, no storming through doors. His character is a man in love but pushed too hard by his beloved (Parker) so his empathy is believable to a fault. His is one of the most delightful moments of the film, including the possibility of salvage at the closing.

The scenery goes well with Mark Isham's excellent score and yes, these characters are perhaps a bit too neurotic to be really lovable, but that is the point of it all, and this movie proves it, hands down.

Definitely not a masterpiece, but a good, entertaining and also aching film that is in no way forgettable after all.
