A Favorite Movie of Mine!
29 April 2004 | by lisalafreniere1See all my reviews

Mike Binder (Mind of The Married Man) is such a clever writer, and his male perspective of relationships fascinates me. His writing is honest, funny, and ironic. I had to search for this movie on DVD, but the name was changed to FOURPLAY for release in the United States. I think that he really brought something different out in the performances of Mariel Hemingway and especially Colin Firth, as you get to see a different side of him in this film. I love England, and as such, it gives such great scenery and glimpses of different areas of the country and the way it is filmed, you almost feel as though you are walking right alongside them on the streets of London. This movie is very much like a play in that it centers around four main characters, only interspersed with a few other very funny characters. I love it, and if you enjoy any of the people associated with this film, I highly recommend it. It's an incredibly intelligent film, but very funny. I especially love the pub scenes with Colin Firth and Mike Binder....Good stuff!
