Storyline

Rosie (40), a divorced mother, produces the has-been TV comedy You Go Girl. Her boss no longer allows the show to tackle any vaguely controversial subjects, so it seems doomed. Then she meets at an audition Adam Perl (29), an attractive, spontaneously funny, single actor. She successfully casts him, which revives the show's ratings. She also dates him, but her pathological insecurity, focused on their age difference, compromises the relationship. That culminates when she suspects him of infidelity with the show's star, and the studio gives those two their own sitcom. Written by KGF Vissers

Mother Nature: [sigh] Pretty impressive, huh? People tend to think of me as that, uh, environmental nut. But whenever I get down to work they say, 'Mother Nature, you're such a destructive bitch'.

Heckerling triumphantly takes on Hollywood
3 July 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"I Could Never Be Your Woman" is written and directed by Amy Heckerling, she of "Clueless" (1995) fame. Now she has triumphantly returned and is taking on the TV and film industry.

This movie is for the young Generation Xers who watched "Clueless" en masse. Now that we have grown up and Heckerling has too, she is skewering the beauty-obsession of Hollywood and its desire to look and be younger.

Michelle Pfeiffer stars as the producer of a teen-based TV show, she's 40 and she's a single mom. The main storyline is that she casts Paul Rudd in her show and starts dating him. A romantic comedy with a younger man-older woman relationship. Yes that's been done before, and yes, the standard lame rom-com story isn't great. But that doesn't matter here because it's the right vehicle for all the hilarious Hollywood-bashing jokes.

Heckerling is right-on-target with her many jokes, and her audience should appreciate the casting of "Clueless" vets Stacey Dash and Paul Rudd as actors playing high school teenagers. Also stars Jon Lovitz as the ex-husband, and Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan as the daughter, plus even more great comedic actors.

The right audience (teenagers of the 90s) should thoroughly enjoy "I Could Never Be Your Woman". Anybody frustrated with the beauty-obsession and thin bodies thrown at us from a Hollywood-induced society, will also find themselves laughing all the way through to the end credits.
