Despite its famous cast, the movie lacks sympathetic characters and is only funny in spurts.

Movie Info

For an awkward, self-conscious girl like Kiki, being the personal assistant to a beautiful mega-star like Gwen isn't easy. But when she dutifully accepts the task of helping Gwen and her estranged mega-star husband Eddie make it through one last public appearance masterminded by legendary press agent Lee Phillips, forever devoted Kiki finds that her job is about to get even harder. At first it seems her challenge is to keep the peace between Gwen and Eddie and their public image intact, but soon Kiki is faced with a more personal concern as her longtime friendship with Eddie begins to take a romantic turn.

Audience Reviews for America's Sweethearts

  • Jul 24, 2013
    An all-star cast, indeed, but the film is lackluster in comedy even in romance. America's Sweethearts is a rom-com that does no favors in providing attention or even inspiration to the audience despite the amount of stars on display. 3/5

    better than the low expectations some reviews gave me. been a long time since seeing 2 women, roberts & zeta-jones, in lead roles BOTH play their roles so strongly. stanley tucci also pulled off the meglomaniac boss effortlessly. however i feel crystal & cusack were just turning up for work and were outclassed. 70% of the jokes were genuinely funny

    From writer/producer Billy Crystal comes the fun, romantic comedy America's Sweethearts. When America's number one Hollywood couple goes through a tumultuous breakup, the film studio plots to get them back together in order to promote their latest movie. John Cusack, Julia Roberts, Billy Crystal, and Catherine Zeta-Jones form an all-star cast that delivers some great performances. Plus, the story's written fairly well and has some fun surprises. America's Sweethearts is an entertaining romp full of laughs.

    full of a cast of known greats but they can't resurrect a dull concept and boring characters. billy crystal has made a career full of hits and misses and this is one of the misses
