User Reviews

A charming little story.
5 November 2000 | by lastseaSee all my reviews

All right, so it's not the great epic of our times, but it's pretty cute. Gabriel Byrne gives a good performance as Kevin Scanlon, the workaholic doctor who falls in love with Lucy Chadman, a nonsensical suburban housewife resurrected a year after her death. Byrne combines wry humour and determination nicely - and is the reason I've seen the movie as many times as I have. Shelley Long bubbles as usual, in the role of Lucy, a woman who must choose between her old life, and her second chance for happiness. It's a cute 80's romantic comedy, and an enjoyable anecdote.
