I'm still not sure about the pairing of Renée Zellweger and Chris O'Donnell (somehow she looks a LOT older than him, and is way too quirky) but on the whole I enjoyed this movie. There are some very funny moments, and an outstanding (if slightly strange!) supporting cast - Ustinov, Cromwell, Shields, Carey, Asner, Holbrook - each worth watching in their own right.
Slightly wacky, it doesn't take itself too seriously (how could it, with stars as diverse as Maria Carey and Peter Ustinov?!) and plays along at a nice pace. It feels good to watch, and my only criticism is there's not enough of Marley Shelton, who for me gives the best performance of all. She and Zellweger undoubtedly provide the best scenes.
It's a classic comedy, it does what it says on the tin. If you need entertaining, then look no further.
