Trivia

This was Joe Roth's first picture as director in 11 years. Initially Billy Crystal was slated to direct the picture. When Roth read the script, he was totally immersed and liked the script so much that he wanted to direct. Crystal granted Roth's request to direct the picture and stayed on as producer. See more »

A good Fun Movie
23 December 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Gwen (Catherine Zeta Jones) and Eddie (John Cusack) are America's favourite sweetheart couple, but since breaking up Eddie has had a breakdown and Gwen's career is floundering. Their latest movie is shortly due for release and their press agent Lee (Billy Crystal) with the help of Gwen's sister Kiki (Julie Roberts) have to get them back together and promote the movie.

Written and produced by Billy Crystal 'America's Sweethearts' is a good giggle, and has some fine performances from Cusack, Crystal, Roberts and Jones (Although Catherine Zeta Jones's performance as a press hungry b*tch, is maybe a little too believable). For me though the ending makes the movie, its not entirely what your expecting and Christopher Walken, helps to bring the closing scenes to life, with his patented brand of acting genius.

Worth a watch 7/10
