Julianne Moore and Pierce Brosnan freshly pair up in McKenna's splendid 'Laws of Attraction'. It is sort of an unusual romantic comedy set partly in America and partly in Ireland. Moore and Brosnan are a delight to watch, especially how their love story unfolds in the courtroom. Brosnan is great at playing the Irishman (as he also proved in 'Evelyn') perhaps because he is one. Moore keeps proving what an incredibly versatile actress she is as she shows a flair for comedy. But it is the scenes between Frances Fisher and Julianne Moore that I enjoyed watching the most. The movie has some great punchlines the best of which are delivered by Fisher. Lending hilarious support are Michael Sheen as a rockstar and Parker Posey as his fashion designer wife. The Irish scenes may be a little clichéd and 'touristy' but nonetheless fun to watch. On the flip side, 'Laws of Attraction' felt a bit rushed in parts and the plot could have been better developed. However, that doesn't stop it from making the viewers laugh out loud and root for Daniel and Audrey to succeed in their fun romantic adventure.
