Peter O Toole tries to carry this film on his back, similar to the character `Boris' in the film trying to single handedly carry the refrigerator up the long flight of stairs, but you guessed it, the film just like the fridge goes tumbling down, cascading head over heels with that obnoxious, sappy soundtrack, the perfect background to it's painful decent. What the heck was that piece of new age fodder anyway, its sounds like a 15 second loop that they kept repeating over and over, talk about a low budget soundtrack. I give Peter O Toole allot of credit though, his superior acting skills and charm bring this film it's only worthwhile moments. But the story is so contrived, and poorly paced that one excellent performance can not save it. If, as one commenter suggested, a woman were to show this movie to me as a test of the potential for a meaningful relationship with her, I would thank her sincerely and then head straight for the exit. This is the fairy tale, head in the clouds kind of romanticism that usually gets people in trouble in relationships when the reality of day to day struggles sets in. One surprising note: the trailer to this film that's included on the DVD is actually much better and funnier than the movie and is all you really need to watch! What a great time saver.
