This glossy Hollywood romantic melodrama is a rehash of themes we've seen too many times before.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Jones


If you know anyone Bi-Polar, this is a Must see.When he's(Richard Gere) up, he spreads Joy & is so Charming & Irresistible, When he's down, he takes Prisoners.Lena Olin plays his Psychiatrist , Dr Libbie Bowen,who knows better, but falls in love with him anyway.This Film packs a punch to the heart, I saw it years ago, I've never forgotten the impact it left on me.I find myself recommending this Film all the time.


Interesting story and a challenging role for Gere. Not too beleiveable but since it's Gere, it is worth seeing. Watching him act is a good reason to watch anything he is in.

bi-polar is no joke......helps one slightly understand one with manic depression. this movie does not represent the most extreme of cases, but easily introduces one into a glimpse of mania and severe depression.

Richard Gere is sooo fine when he is strapped down in a psychiatric bed and he is wet from sweating and fighting.....
