Movie Info

What's a middle-aged woman to do when her husband walks out on her and her favorite pop star is murdered by a serial killer? Writer/director P.J. Hogan explores this and many other pressing questions in Unconditional Love, a comic murder-mystery he devised with his wife and co-screenwriter, Jocelyn Moorhouse. Their heroine, Grace Beasly (Kathy Bates), finds her placid Midwestern life turned upside down after she loses both of the aforementioned men in her life: her husband (Dan Aykroyd) and the

A misconceived comedy that despite a warmly empathetic performance from Kathy Bates, never makes its characters' unorthodox chemistry gel.

Part fantasy, part mystery, part women's melodrama, part musical, but not satisfying on any of these levels.

Perdido entre a farsa, a crítica social, o drama e uma trama policial ridícula, o longa faz o máximo para tentar se estabelecer como cult, mas é bobo demais para isso.

Audience Reviews for Unconditional Love

At times the humour is so painfully inept and clumsy, it renders whole segments totally surreal and extremely embarrassing to watch: Julie Andrews' cameo, which was initially amusing but it quickly overplayed it's welcome so that when she turns up a second time with the same joke you want to scream "Why??!!"; Everitt faux wanking a gun in a glittering blue suit; the whole crossbow killer storyline that made no sense whatsoever; the insane chat show ending complete with Barry Manilow!!
But, for some reason I kept watching and did actually laugh out loud on occassion. And I loved the joky references to 'Don't Look Now'
Not quite good enough to qualify as a guilty pleasure but fun just the same. I just can't imagine wanting to watch it again

Actually, it's Tom Jones. I put the CD on myself.

It's the little things . . .

And the big things. Jonathan Pryce, you are the man! What a performance.

Why did I not hear about this movie before? I really must live in some kind of cave. Mahalo nui loa, Joanna, for the rec. One very well-written murder mystery. Sui generis would be an apt term. Julie Andrews and Lynn Redgrave probably read this script and thought: Yes! I must do this movie! They look so much like they're having a blast doing this.

There are so many great things about this movie. Even the guy answering the telephone for the call-in contest, the way he reacts to what Bates says on the other end of the phone when she calls back. Amazing. If you can jam that much heart into the incidental stuff, you gotta know your movie is going to rock the proverbial house.

And the nod to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid--what a moment.

I'd give it five stars . . . but . . . well . . . you know, flixster friends, it's Dan Aykroyd. Man . . . not excellent.

Still, once again, Mr. Pryce, KUDOS! You absolutely, as Julie in Australia might say, kick butt.

Second Viewing Update: Okay, if you think I'm too harsh with Aykroyd, here's an example of what I'm talking about. For me, the only reason why the restaurant scene works so well--remember, we know Everett is not really Bates' new flame--, is because of Bates' reaction to the words Aykroyd is saying to her, not because of the way Aykroyd is delivering his lines. Watch it again and tell me if I'm mistaken. I know I could be wrong. But, hey, even if you disagree, isn't Bates great in that scene?

Is it me, or do any of you confuse Ewan McGregor with Sarsgaard?
