Lonely but charming divorce lawyers on opposite sides of the aisle opt for a longterm contract, no pre-nup, and so a writ of habeas corpus in this predictable bit o'unfortunately unfortunate blarney. The actors work so hard, and I was rooting for 'em, but ... it finally comes off as too forced, too mechanical, too formulaic, like a big song and dance production number to corn flakes.
Critics didn't like this movie...but I believe this is a really smart film. Good writing. Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore are perfectly cast as two rival divorce lawyers who...surprise...fall in love. The chemistry between Brosnan and Moore is awesome. Good date movie!
This is one of those kinda corny , fun , ghetto , & not-made-that-well kind of movies that i love anyway , you know .
its not horrid but its not great but i love it just the same .
Micheal Sheen is the best part .
02-17-08 --2 divorce lawyers that are total opposites constantly find themselves facing each other. He's in love with her and she doesn't believe in love. She's hardened by the "system". He tries really hard I give him that. This is an "allright" movie. Nothing too horrible to go off on.
This movie was SO GOOD that I watched it a 2nd time in the same day. Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore were great as divorce attorneys who end up getting married. This is definitely a GREAT film! After all, Ireland is part of the movie. If you like Pierce Brosnan in comedies, you'll enjoy this movie. I know I did!!
Seems to be a remake of a Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hephern movie ADAMS RIB, yet was a loveable movie to watch. Pierce Brosnan is charming in all levels and Julianne Moore plays off of him so well! Great actors working well together is what makes a movie so good!
