Movie Info

In this romantic comedy of mistaken identity, Oscar Novak (Matthew Perry) and Peter Steinberg (Oliver Platt) are a pair of struggling but talented Chicago architects given the chance of a lifetime: Charles Newman (Dylan McDermott), an extremely wealthy business tycoon, is considering hiring them to design a multi-million dollar cultural center. However, Oscar and Peter aren't the only ones who've been asked to contribute ideas for the project; Decker and Strauss (John C. McGinley and Bob

McDermott's natural earnestness serves him well as attorney Bobby Donnell on The Practice, but he shows zero flair for comedy.

Three to Tango is too careful, too proper in its approach, to shift into high gear.

Three to Tango trips early and never gets up off the floor.

In Three to Tango Neve Campbell is mired in a plot of such stupidity that there is only one thing to do, and that is to look at her.

An essentially subversive comedy with a bubbly, immensely entertaining face.

Although sometimes amusing, 'Three to Tango' relies on a one-joke emphasis that wears thin early on.

Perry and Campbell's natural rapport is put at the service of an idiot plot.

If I had wanted a 90-minute episode of Friends, I would've asked for one.

A whirlwind of bad gay jokes and mistaken motives.

Trouble is, they're trying so hard and missing the mark by so much that they end up being more irritating than appealing.

January 1, 2000

Full of gay jokes that were tired back in the day of In and Out.

Charlotte Observer

Its humor seems forced, lame and dated.

The lack of film stars doesn't signify that Three To Tango lacks virtues; it's just that it doesn't stretch toward anything excellent.

Three to Tango is a poor locker room joke disguised as a sophisticated comedy.

Smarmy sitcom material.

Any moderately intelligent fourteen-year-old will be way ahead of the thoroughly predictable plot.

January 1, 2000 Full Review Source: Compuserve

Any of the series Matthew Perry, Neve Campbell and Dylan McDermott are involved with is far superior to this trashy travesty, with its hopeless mixture of endlessly smutty dialogue, clumsy slapstick, and swishy stereoptypes.

One Guy's Opinion

Like a loaf of stale bread. From afar, it may look fresh and mildly engaging, but get closer, and its appeal sours.

The journey is so arduous and lackluster you feel like Lawrence crossing Arabia.

Audience Reviews for Three to Tango

I would call this film Kooky. Kooky is a little odd, a little different, a little unexpected but not particularly good. It wasn't predictable and it did hold my attention but overall it wasn't anything special, just refreshingly different. Basically not great but not awful either! Better than In & Out but that's not saying much eh!

I liked this one and I thought the cast was great. Oliver Platt was awesome in this role and he played off well with the others. It was a simple story but the actors made you care about what was going to happen.
