News & Interviews for Jack & Sarah
Critic Reviews for Jack & Sarah
Sparky playing, a generally sharp script and bright packaging add up to a neat little winner in the romantic comedy Jack & Sarah, a kind of After Nine Months London style.
As English as it gets, this romantic comedy about a one-parent family is not without a modest charm.
It's a miracle on the level of childbirth that it holds together at all. But it does.
To its credit, "Jack and Sarah" eschews the standard cutesy-poo shenanigans found in movies where adorable infants run inexperienced adults ragged with their needs. Unfortunately, the movie has very little comedy to offer in place of such antics.
"Jack & Sarah" is one of those romantic movies viewers know will end in a happy smooch. What's fine is the rush of amusing, heartrending humanity before it gets to the inevitable.
Audience Reviews for Jack & Sarah
This affable romantic comedy-drama tends to wander from scene to scene and juggles a few more plot threads than it can handle; still, it never becomes predictable, and the surprising rapport between Richard E. Grant and Samantha Mathis (along with the excellent supporting cast) carries the day.
Richard E. Grant at his smarmiest in a nauseating schmaltz fest that surely could only be of interest to menopausal women. Utterly hateful crap.
Well-performed domestic comedy-drama
Jack & Sarah Quotes
|Amy:||I was perfectly happy being miserable.|
|Jack:||She doesn't need someone who's impressive, Mum. She needs someone who'll love her.|
|Anna:||All I'm saying is, if you'd like a couple of days off around the 22nd, it would be good for us.|
|Jack:||But she's not due until the 25th, Anna.|
|Anna:||Fine, I'm just saying things will be more manageable around the 22nd.|
|Jack:||All right. sure. I'll ask Sarah to check her diary and see if she can bring the birth forward.|
|Jack:||Do you want nipple pads or nipple shield or just the pads?|
|Jack:||Okay, I'll get both. Flesh colored or white? [shrugs]|
|Amy:||If your father goes on this way, we're going to end up being a single parent family.|
