Storyline

Two sisters, plus a dead mother, a remarried father, and a hostile step-mother. The sisters, each in her way, have perfected the art of losing. The elder, Rose, is an attorney, responsible, lonely, with a closet full of shoes. The younger is Maggie, beautiful, selfish, and irresponsible. Her drunken behavior gets her tossed by her step-mother from her dad's house; worse behavior gets her tossed from Rose's apartment. Then, while searching in her father's desk for money to filch, Maggie finds an address; the past and the future open up to her and, with any luck, may open to her sister as well.

Totally delightful
10 October 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't get all this "chick flick" talk. This is a wonderful movie. I did not expect a Hollywood movie to have characters with depth and an interesting complex family story. Cameron Diaz is a terrific comedic actress (regardless of her obvious sex appeal). Shirley Maclaine plays understated older women and Toni Collenette continues to be a excellent actress. There was good chemistry between all three. Some of the minor characters, especially in Florida were quite good. As a guy I hope all this "chick flick" talk does not deter serious film goers who want to have a rally good time at the movies. This is an intelligent movie for adults- not aimed at the 15-19 year-old set.
