John Ritter & Katey Sagal Were Terrific together!

Author: whpratt1 from United States
4 April 2004

Have enjoyed seeing this film many times in the past, however, I have a deeper appreciation for the great acting skills of John Ritter. It is sad to see him in this picture along with Katey Sagal, who was the last actress to work with him in "8 Simple Rules",TV Series,'02. John Ritter( Tom Maguire), and Katey Sagal (Irene Duncan), had me laughing through out the entire picture. I enjoyed seeing Irene Duncan pushing Tom around in a hand DOLLY to protect his back problems. The scenes taken in the City of Chicago were outstanding. This film will always keep John Ritter's image a live for all future generations to see what a great talent he had to offer the world!

Good TV Movie

It's funny how Katey Segal and John Ritter are now on "8 Simple Rules" together because they also appear in this Good TV Movie.It's about this guy (Ritter) who marries his long-time friend (Segal) for health insurance after he breaks his back.I highly reccommend even though the ending is predictable.

Nice, simple love story

Author: petslover from Etna, USA

This movie Is the basic love story that most people have seen. Guy and girl work together,someone gets fired, they have to get married for some reason or other, and they only plan to keep it up for a few weeks. Eventually they realize that they love each other and they stay married. I don't want to give away the whole story so just watch it if you ever get the chance. I like the love stories that end good and happy.

Love this Movie

Author: ylopez4-1 from United States

I literally just finished watching it on you tube granted the premise of the movie has been done before, but this time the actors show a lot of depth I really felt the chemistry between the two leads John Ritter (RIP) and Katey Sagal, I loved it. As I was stating, It has been done plenty of times before but it was just so beautiful especially the acting from Mrs. Sagal was right on the money, as a woman I really found her character very sympathetic, like most of us women are trying to meet the right man at times is right in front of us, and we just don't know it well at least 97% of the time ,anyhow I love the ending to me, that was the most prettiest and priceless scene I have ever seen, very refreshing and highly enjoyable.

Excellently funny movie

Author: Allie (Awesome8SimpleRules) from Southampton, England

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Katey Sagal and John Ritter are excellent in this movie,both bounce of each other bringing the excellent script to life.They both are very funny and the way they interact and play off each others comedic experience is a joy to watch. It was great to see them back acting together in 8 Simple Rules.Its just a shame it was for such a short time as they are a really good pair.They have the same chemistry in this movie as they did in 8 Simple Rules. This movie is really good,it has suspense in there as well as comedy and romance,showing that love can come from anything,anywhere,anyone. I do wish that they had realised their feelings for each other a bit earlier on so we could see what happened for a bit of their lives,but its not so bad cos its meant to stimulate our own minds with what happens after they are together. Everyone should watch this movie if its only to see John and Katey in something before 8 Simple Rules or just to see John in a romantic comedy role or if your a fan of either John or Katey or both as i am.
