Movie Info

For an awkward, self-conscious girl like Kiki (Julia Roberts), being the personal assistant to a beautiful megastar like Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) isn't easy. But when she dutifully accepts the task of helping Gwen and her estranged husband Eddie (John Cusack) make it through one last public appearance masterminded by legendary press agent Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal), forever devoted Kiki finds that her job is about to get even harder when her and Eddie's relationship takes a romantic turn.

Audience Reviews for America's Sweethearts

    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
