The humanity is spread around with a quirky, generous hand, reason enough to distinguish this quiet, low-tech comedy in a season of big-bang juvenilia.
Something to Talk About is at its best when Khouri's juicy script is adroitly mixing comedy and pathos.
Something to Talk About never goes bad, though it does get corny in places, and it hits a couple of dull patches near the finish.
Everything about Something to Talk About feels off by a few beats.
In [Khouri's] zeal to portray a world full of male scum, she creates a morally mismatched, pandering scenario.
Something to Talk About is weary -- every ounce of energy and originality has long since been wrung out of this formula, and the 'twist' of having the leads already married doesn't do much to spice up things.
A few stray moments of wit mired amidst a low-key and sleep-inducing presentation.
Dull, dumb and listless.
Horrible "romantic comedy." Great message for the ladies: Forgive your cheating husband because that's the best you can do.
Focuses on the personal renewal of a woman after the break-up of her marriage.
The script by Callie Khouri is somewhat disjointed in structure.
An especially painful letdown
Quite a downer of a movie for a 90's Julia Roberts! It's not awful, and generally I like small town settings and I'm not someone who thinks movies need to be "nice" either, as that's not how life is. I don't know why I really couldn't take to this that much.
The cast are good (well, aside from the daughter. Geez. I actually wondered if she was meant to be special needs in her earlier scenes, but , no, just bad acting it seems).
Adorable movie. Lots of good acting. The relationship between Roberts' and Sedgwick's characters reminded me of my sister and I's.
Clever and excellent characterisations elevate the familiar story of how Julia Roberts's life is thrown into turmoil when she discovers that husband Dennis Quaid has been cheating on her.
Director Lasse Hallstrom did a good job with this drama movie. He certainly seemed fascinated in making a movie which shows how dysfunctional a family really can be, and on more than one level in this film.
Roberts and Kyra Sedgwick are perfect choices of casting as sisters because they look like they could actually be related - imagine they are separated at birth.
Good cast. Movie about a woman who finds out her husband is cheating on her. She goes home to her parents to re-evaluate her life.
