Two Girls and a Guy Reviews

Page 2 of 3
January 1, 2000
Robert Downey Jr.'s Blake Allen is enough of a raging dynamo to find the dark humor and desperate romanticism at the heart of Mr. Toback's ego trip of a premise, and to make Blake sympathetic too.

Sometimes the story behind a movie can bring an angle to what's on the screen.

January 1, 2000
All three actors are worth keeping an eye on, in Downey Jr.'s case hopefully it will be for what he's doing on screen instead of off.

January 1, 2000
The film is mostly an occasion for Downey to plumb some stereotypical guy fantasy depths, defending his appetites, duplicities and major mother-fixation.
January 1, 2000
The character's self-destructive, self-centered side echoes much of Downey's recent, real-life excess. His obvious talent makes you hope he can put his problems behind him -- and go on to a better film.

The set-up is tantalising, the casting is immaculate and the performances sparkling. But somehow, the script never rings true.
January 1, 2000
An angst-ridden one-act talkathon between an egregious fool, struggling actor, and exceedingly qualified cad-and his two separate, but equal, significant others.

January 1, 2000
The movie has the feel of a play in which they recruited three new acting school graduates and filmed their first day of rehearsals.

January 1, 2000
Robert Downey Jr. is an extraordinarily gifted actor and, despite a contrived storyline and shaky dialogue, Two Girls and a Guy is a striking film, thanks primarily to his inspired performance.

A whiny, snoozy bore.

January 1, 2000
Downey's last scene knocks the wind out of you: You may feel you need a moment or two before you can get up out of your seat.
January 1, 2000
Its particular appeal is in watching Downey, a master, at work, particularly when he seems to be exorcising his own demons, and in appreciating the facial expressions on its three characters who are filmed by Barry Markowitz in bold closeup.

Unless it's a fantasy or a particularly weird science-fiction film, a movie just won't work without some atmosphere of believability.

Pretty hideous.

January 1, 2000
Two Girls and a Guy isn't a satisfying movie, but Downey is alarmingly brilliant in it.
January 1, 2000
The irrepressible Downey seems almost born to play the role of this slippery eel, and both Graham and Wagner ease comfortably into their roles.
January 1, 2000
Wagner doesn't wink at the audience to let it know she's not as ignorant and naive as the character she plays. It's a performance that risks being misunderstood, and it probably will be.

The year's smartest and spikiest date-movie so far.
January 1, 2000
Downey, Graham and Wagner are so natural they take the plot where it leads their characters' hearts. The result is emotional authenticity that is beyond mere performance. It's real.

This proves that even at 84 minutes, a feature film can be too long.
