There are several movie references in the film, most of which are acknowledged. One that is not is when Marty (Ron Livingston) tells Nina Cohen (Cara Buono), "You want to see God laugh? Make a plan." Nina responds, "I like that movie." That line is from the film, Kicking and Screaming (1995), which starred Cara Buono. See more »
Nina Cohen's friend Carrie refers to Nina's apartment as being number 3A, but earlier in the film we see that her apartment is actually number 3B. See more »
First off, a big thank you to all the people who have voted for and/or reviewed this film.
I wanted to buy a film I had not seen on DVD. I went to my local HMV and selected a long list of titles I knew little or nothing about. Two Nina's had the most impressive voting breakdown, as of today, noone voted below 4, and the curve of votes is highest at 10, exponentially down to 4.
So I went and bought it. I watched it, I loved it. The only member of cast that was familiar was the lead actor, whom I saw in Office Space, which I enjoyed.
Two Ninas is a romantic comedy. One of the best you will come across. Guy meets two girls falls for both and the film, together with some smart scripting and simple direction, completely involves you in the characters involved the pathos and vitality of the situation.
Personally I think he made the wrong choice. Choose the girl with the similar interests and full of pent up frustration, or choose the girl with the common attitude of not being 100% sure what she wants from the relationship, and is helping it to its natural conclusion...
I think in a burgeoning relationship, both sides should not try to force the issue.
The point is the film creates these kind of talking points, and a film that does that is a film worth seeing again, and again....
I gave it a nine out of ten. It lost the one point because I wanted to see more. A follow up called two Ninas two??? Works for me!!!
