Rudd and Aniston are sad and believable as star-crossed lovers who know they can never be together for reasons beyond their control.
Aniston, a friend in need of a solid movie script... finally gets one courtesy of Tony-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein.
The viewpoint may not be exactly fresh, but [screenwriter Wendy] Wasserstein... delivers the heartfelt message that, male or female, gay or straight, black or white, old or young, the important thing is to pick some one person and make it work.
It is the sort of story best left to the French, who take great delight in such trifles.
The mixture of sincerity and sitcom phoniness is bewildering at times, but on some level, I guess, the film works.
The plot's hokey contrivances and the theatrical shtick tend to prevail over the sporadic moments of insight and emotional truth.
You come away with a remarkable sense of the filmmakers and actors working together harmoniously as they delve into the heart of relationships between friends and lovers.
Unashamedly a chick-flick, but no less enjoyable for it.
The Object of My Affection is one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in ages.
At the core... is the college dorm debate question: Can a man and a woman live and love together without sex? The answers ... in a typical dorm room are ... as interesting...
This is a tale of difficult choices and wistful decisions, of trying to choose between two types of love when only one is possible. It is touching without being sappy, and beautifully photographed.
Wendy Wasserstein's script endows the story with equal measures emotional pain and romantic buoyancy...
Jennifer Aniston made some interesting choices in taking movie roles in the nineties, before she became queen of the agitating awful rom-coms. This indie comedy, about a social worker and her gay roommate, shows them having a strained relationship while also dealing with their own love lives. I'm torn on whether or not I genuinely like this film, because the characters are enjoyable to watch, and the way they maneuver between the blurred lines of sexuality is interesting, but the way sexual orientation is depicted leaves me cold. So many films have tried to characterize sexuality as a spectrum that involves men who are gay experimenting with women to a point of domesticity. This was done successfully on "Will and Grace" and the same concept was exploited in "Gigli" but to an outside observer it rarely makes sense. Here, at least, it's clearly defined that George has no interest in a sexual relationship with Nina, and just wants to help her raise her child, but Nina is unaware, which tilts perspective. This film handles its characters' motivations rather well and shows the dysfunction in their relationship with aplomb, but it would be great for once to see a gay man and straight woman be friends without the added drama of sexual tension. Otherwise it's a sweet little film that explores modern day relationships and their many layers.
This glossy, unusual romantic comedy is great with the appealling cast including Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.
A pretty good movie, though I did feel a bit disappointed in the end but it was the proper way to end it I suppose. Good to watch if you're in the mood for something emotional I suppose.
What starts out as a fairly basic story turns into a complex love story and then ends up as a mess.
