Mel is a musician in Manhattan, with plenty of one-night stands but no steady companion, except for his goldfish. He decides to move in with his current girlfriend, so he sublets his flat to Ginger, an English biologist new in town. The day he moves out, he flips for the bride at a wedding where he's playing, breaks up with his girlfriend, and moves back into his flat, negotiating with Ginger to her temporary flatmate. Meanwhile, he pursues Diana, the bride, working as the elevator operator in her building while he and Ginger develop a friendship as she does research on his fish. One of her lab frogs and his fish develop an attraction: is this a harbinger of opposites attracting? Written by
In the scene where Ginger asks Melvin for his fish, he takes a coke out of his back pocket and opens it. There is no sound of it opening. Also in several different jump cuts of this scene the coke can changes back and forth. See more »
...with a wonderful, mellow, moody, sophisticated atmosphere and a fine sense of timing, comedy, jazz, and film history. Modine and Gershon - not a combo I'd ever have expected to see together - have a great thing going, and Myers lets them have groove together. C Cashman's stripper scene is one of the funniest I have seen in a movie this year.
Like some of the previous posters, I really disagree with the single negative - but vague - comment at the top of this site. Modine and Gershon were brave to take on roles in a small film with an inexperienced director like Myers, but the results are admirable - a meditation and adventure on frogs, jazz, science, nerds, and love. How could anyone resist?
I would recommend this intelligent, hilarious movie to anyone who likes good, clean film fun - hopefully it will transcend its Manhattan-cool vibe and find broad success.
