User Reviews

 
a lot of fun
1 March 1999 | by petshopSee all my reviews

A hilarious comedy that sends up film techniques while providing an interesting character study. The film begins where Hollywood romances leave off. A young firefighter saves a woman from a blazing building. They kiss and fall in love. The closing credits roll. Then Adam and Eva begins.

It's exuberant directing never overshadows the characters that make up its story. The romance seems to have faded from their relationship and the couple discusses divorce. Then Adam has an affair and the ball gets rolling.

Sometimes a little too much is compacted into the story, as though the filmmaker knew this was the only film they'd ever make, and they wanted to get everything in it.
