Storyline

Meeting each other for the first time in the gift shop of the Las Cruces, New Mexico hotel where they are both staying, there is an undeniable and mutual attraction between Julia Mann and Kevin Vallick, with things they share being their insomnia and both being writers. That attraction may take a turn when they find out at an inopportune time that he is now not the television sitcom writer she believed him to be and she is now not the reporter he believed her to be, but rather they are both speechwriters for opposing candidates for the one open New Mexico senate seat, she writing for Democrat Lloyd Wannamaker, and he writing for Republican Ray Garvin. Beyond issues within their respective campaigns they may have let slip in their pillow talk, they have to decide if love and politics can mix. Their situation is further complicated by: Julia's ex-fiancé, war correspondent Robert Freed - nicknamed Baghdad Bob - trying to win her back, she who broke up with him believing he wanted a ...

Quotes

Julia: You used me. You took the Mexico Ditch! You never even heard of it before!
Kevin: Of course. I didn't realize you had a copyright on a ditch. What other forces of nature are yours?
Julia: I will keep this simple. I. Me. This person in front of you. I do not. Not. The international symbol for "no". I do not want you near me again!
Kevin: Hey. Wait, wait, wait. Wait a minute. So are we still on for midnight?

Competent and easy on the eye romantic comedy
29 December 2010 | by eversoseriousSee all my reviews

Easy on the mind, on the eyes, and on the ears.

Geena Davis and Michael Keaton make the most of the best lines in the script, and support from Christopher Reeve is excellent. The film stutters on occasion and may be ten minutes or so too long, but it manages to keep you interested, just.

Watch for the continuity errors when Geena manages to get herself engaged during one short bedtime phone call. The ring that didn't come from the phone!!! And what an appearance by the red Morgan convertible, put through its paces by Davis and Keaton in more than one way.

Good for a night in with popcorn, chocs, and ice cream.
