This goose is cooked, burned beyond recognition in the good film category
27 August 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Marlene (Jennifer Tilly) is the daughter of a nouveau-riche Jewish couple (Robert Klein and Joan Rivers). Her parents are extremely critical of poor Marlene and she becomes very needy for affection. From her first baby steps into romance at a summer camp, Marlene is looking for love in all the wrong places, as it were. Her first marriage fails badly and she heads for California. Once there, a psychic tells Marlene that she will marry a doctor named Steve. Since that is the only detail provided, Marlene begins a quest to find the right physician. She even hooks up with a Steve who sings in a band called Medicine Man. This liaison results in a set of twin boys. But, alas, Marlene is jilted time and again. Will she ever be happy? Although there are a few humorous moments in the film, such as the scene where newly-wealthy Rivers tells the hired help how she wants her mansion cleaned, the whole premise of the film is pretty unsavory. It is true that women are sometimes obsessed with finding a man and that, as a consequence, kiss many a frog before finding a prince. But, it is usually not a situation that produces humor. Tilly, an Oscar winner for her divine turn in Bullets Over Broadway, is not really bad as Marline and her voice is always full of fun. But, even she can not rise above this dismal, depressing plot line about a woman's misguided search for true love. Klein and Rivers are good but their roles are relatively small and the rest of the unknown cast members are merely adequate. As for the costumes, scenery, and production values, they are decidedly average, also. If you are a fan of Tilly's, you might want to sit through the lame thing. But, in truth, unless you are a glutton for overly cooked goose, just walk away from this sad excuse for a film.
