Gee, I hate to be the only dissenting voice about this film, Framed, an HBO Production from 1990. I love Jeff Goldblum, and Kristin Scott- Thomas is always good.
An art forger, Wiley (Goldblum) in cahoots with his girlfriend Kate (Thomas) is arrested by Interpol a few minutes after she leaves with 5 million francs. He goes to prison for two years. When he is released, he goes to LA and gets a job as a bartender.
Who should he see walking down the street one day but Kate? Believing that she set him up to take a fall, he approaches her. She's on the run from a ruthless man with a very odd name. Ultimately he learns she's engaged to a wealthy mobster (Michael Lerner) and has a plan to steal his Modigliani. She wants Wiley to paint a copy of it so it can be switched, then they will have the original and run off together.
Wiley is then approached by a man from the FBI named Joak who wants to catch Kate and lock her up and elicits Wiley's help. He agrees.
This film was certainly well-acted, and I liked the story, but I was bored. Maybe it was just me. There were some funny bits - the wedding, as was mentioned, is just one. The whole wedding scene, including an accomplice bringing in the cake, was excellent.
Just felt it moved too slowly.
