If Lucy Fell Reviews
I recently picked it up on DVD after not seeing it in years, and still love it, even though I can see it is a bit silly in hindsight. This is a really nice role for Sarah Jessica (particularly when you look at some of the movies she is picking these days. Geez!). I also didn't realise a very young Scarlett Johansson is in this too with a small part!
Elle McPherson plays the same vapid pretty girl she always seemed to play around this era of her career (as with her character on Friends, I think was around the same time). Pretty face, wooden acting. Really not a fan, funny you don't see her these days. But I guess she suits the shallow Jane here.
Eric Schaffer as Joe is not all that well cast, actually kind of weird. (I think written that way, though). Still not annoying enough to put me off the movie! Also worth a look for a younger Ben Stiller - also better than anything he has been in recently (Fockers, anyone?).
Just a sweet, romantic little story which is a bit quirky. Undemanding viewing.
[b]The Island of Dr. Moreau[/b], directed by John Frankenheimer, is an ill-advised science fiction/horror film starring Marlon Brando, Val Kilmer, and Fairuza Balk.
[b]In the Line of Fire[/b], directed by Wolfgang Petersen, Clint Eastwood stars as a Secret Service Agent haunted by his past, specifically JFK's assassination. Decades later a presidential hopeful is being stalked by a possible assassin, and it's up to Eastwood to protect him. John Malkovich is highly memorable as the villian. The cast also includes Rene Russo, Dylan McDermott, It's an above average action thriller.
[b]If Lucy Fell[/b], directed by Eric Schaeffer, is a romantic comedy about a pair of friends who earlier in their life made a "suicide pact" that they would jump of the Brooklyn Bridge if they had not married my age 30. The script is fairly weak and some of the performances (especially from Scaeffer who cast himself) are pretty bad.
