Almost Heaven (2006)
User ReviewsReview this title
Drunken, self-centered, egomaniac he does very well. But even George Clooney would have a hard time making this character's almost instantaneous conquest appeal believable. The film makers use a few slow motion montages to try to make it work, but it doesn't.
This standard rom-com is all script and no substance. We are supposed to think these things happen because the story says so. I didn't buy it. Bill Forsyth at his peak might have been able to pull this off. Shel Piercy simply fails.
Logue stars as a near-40 alcoholic filmmaker given one last shot- at directing a fishing TV show in Scotland hosted by his ex-wife, so he reluctantly travels there to try to make it work. Possible SPOILER- one thing I liked about the film was how the adversarial relationship between he and his ex-wife ultimately evolves into a partnership. I didn't see that coming at all. Also, some REALLY nice looking Scottish females in this. Tom Conti co-stars.
