Just another Chandler movie
1 September 2003 | by bsincSee all my reviews

Matthew Perry just seems unable (or unwilling) to let go of his Chandler persona. The jokes he does in "Three To Tango (and the rest of his newer movies)are all so similar to his sitcom character it's kind of sad seeing one of the funniest men (and my personal favorite "Friend"-well, at least until he marries Monica) be so uninventive and unexperimental with his definite acting abilities. On the other hand, there's the ALWAYS stunning Neve Campbell who steals the show. Incredibly sexy and stunning, funny, smart and with just the right touch of a rebel she makes her character a person I'd love to spend the rest of my life with. I know I always say the same things, especially if the women are as gorgeous as she is, but it's absolutely true. Who could not fall in love with Amy Post?

There's a believable chemistry between the two and the rest of the cast adds its share as well. Romantic comedies are ALWAYS predictable and rightfully so, but "Three To Tango" fails to logically and believably wrap up the plot in the last five minutes, filling it with coincidences that are just to big for the viewer to swallow. Nice, kind of funny(you probably won't find yourself laughing out loud very often, just smiling in your mind as the movie goes along) and who can forget-romantic. 6/10
