Maybe I'm just a sucker for backstage stories about theater people as well as for Thandie Newton, but this English picture kept me absorbed, happy, and occasionally amused despite its dubious details.
On the evidence of this and "Moonlight and Valentino," Bon Jovi could have a screen future if he continues to make the right choices.
This is watchable, but old hat.
A handsome, polished effort, "The Leading Man" is a sly, traditional-style delight.
Unfortunately, the delicate chemistry of success eludes "The Leading Man," which is watchable without being gripping.
Begins as a backstage story about the London theater world, and then a little Hitchcockian intrigue edges into the frame.
While buff, blandly handsome and a pleasant enough screen presence, Jon Bon Jovi can't suggest the bottomless reserves of guile, intelligence and resolve his role demands.
Jon Bon Jovi, with his fiendishly angelic smile, thick, unruly locks, and piercing, flirtatious orbs, is slowly grooming himself for stardom.
A dark but frequently delightful comedy of manners.
Nicely written, with wry British observations, and featuring strong performances all round, while this is not one of Duigan's best works, it's still a sharply observed piece, beautifully performed.
Like the characters' imminent theatre - there's a pervading sense of unreality which makes full connection with the movie rather difficult.
