Mr. Fitzpatrick: Let me get this straight. You don't want to cheat on your girlfriend with your wife?
Like with the other Edward Burns movies I have seen, I'm sort of in the middle here. He definitely has some skills as a filmmaker, yet his movies seem to be missing something. She's the One is a decent Romantic Comedy. It's not your typical romcom and I like it for that. Burns kind of reminds me of a not as a great Woody Allen. He writes, directs and stars in all of his stuff, he deals with the same subjects in his movies and there is something about each scene that tells you it is a Burns movie. Now after just a few experiences of watching his movies I feel like I could see a scene from any of his movies and know right away it's his, just like with Woody Allen.
She's the One is a watchable and likable "comedy," although I think of it more as a drama. It just seems like a key piece of a great movie is missing here and it just drags the whole movie down. I want to like this so much more then I do. There's a lot to like and yet a lot to scoff at and say "What the hell?"
I'll watch anything Burns does because he has a great skill that he hasn't totally realized yet. When he finds that last piece of the puzzle, it's going to be incredibly special.
