I stopped watching the SuperBowl for this! "The Great Movie Giveaway"
1 February 1999 | by J.R.-8See all my reviews

What can I say for Miami Rhapsody. First of all it is very Woody Allenesque but the thing that made those movie good is that Allen really hates himself ,and vents his frustrations on camera talking about all the things that happened in childhood and in his family life. Gwyn Marcus(Sarah Jessica Parker) character never gives any reasons for all her scarcasm she just goes on and on at a annoying pace. She has rich parents so here's my "One-Liner". My brother cheating on his wife so here's my "One-liner". Her character doesn't exist before the movie it like she's born yesterday.

She did not come from a broken home and was not abused as a child so why all the cynicism. A line did mention that she never went out much back in high school because she was so skinny "A Hat Rack" (her words not mine) If so she must have been "Invisible" because she still is skinny.

The movie wasn't so bad it had a good pace the scenes without Parker are actually great even though there are few not that's her fault. The flashbacks are well placed it would have been better if the Writer/director had taken five minutes just 5 min to build Gwyn's neurosis right in the being of the movie and then maybe a Flashback or two then I could have felt connected to her but instead the writer just hands them out to her and all the characters in the film like a lottery. Speaking of the lottery the studio must have had a raffle and the director must have won permission to make this movie in that contest. Finally I would however recommend watching this movie Miami Rhapsody" first and then W. Allen's "Husbands and Wives" second or"Manhattan" to Compare and Contrast the two.
