Jeff Franklin has Issues!
14 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Make no mistake, this is an overlooked, funny film.

Everyone who watches it will take sides, so let me tell you mine. It was a hoot to see the inner workings of the gold-digging beauties hanging out in the TV Entertainment Business and the non-committal guys who attract them.

This woman saw a "chump" and thought she'd latch onto him. He saw a beautiful woman he just wanted to have fun with and use as a nice trophy. Sometimes this works an marriage insues..that is, unless the guy is a total neurotic and marriage was not in his overall plan which this guy was. She didn't get it.

She thought because she was "beautiful, fun and thin", that that's all it takes. She found out, that that is all it takes to get in his bed...not in his heart. (Unless he is shallow -- but that's another film!) Then as he tried to get to KNOW her, she became an obsessive marriage lunatic, hell bent on ruining his career until she gets what she wants...or gets out of him what she wants. Either way..win/win for her..craps for him.

This is a painfully funny film. You're laughing at the jokes, but then you think about the situations. Who's right? Who's wrong? Was he too permissive and should have stopped her dead in her tracks from day one?Was she too "I got my hooks in a rich man and want marriage' and no matter WHAT he said wouldn't listen? That's up to you to decide. But the way this film puts it, you cannot help but laugh at it all.
