Having read a good portion of the reviews of this movie, it is safe to say that this movie is about 'some' of us, and not at all about the others. It is flawed and deserves criticism for the uneven affect of the actors, the super-ficial self-confessional indulgence of the author, and perhaps the lack of consequence. But here's the thing, shot through in 11 hours in a single SoHo loft 20 years ago, this one act play tells the truth about some of our thoroughly modern lives. It is a beautiful portrait of Robert Downey Jr. whose brilliance is so charming that we forgive him everything. If you're a fan, this is a little treat.

RDJ pretty much shines in almost every film he's in... & this movie was no different... and now watching this movie, as oppose to when I was younger, I can the see the characteristics of what will later become the personality of "Iron Man"... also Wagner & especially Graham were quite excellent as well.

Raw and uncompromising, Two Girls and a Guy takes a hard look at relationships. When two women discover that they've been unknowing dating the same guy, they decide to ambush him at his apartment and get answers. The performances by Heather Graham, Natasha Gregson Wagner, and Robert Downey Jr. are especially good, and they have impressive chemistry together. But the film doesn't seem to know what it's trying to say; as the women's indignation at being cheated on turns into hypocrisy as the discussion gets deeper and more revealing. In fact, the main characters seem to be constantly in flux as the issues of honesty and fidelity are exploded (which could be the point). Two Girls and a Guy has some interesting ideas, but it doesn't really work as a film.

This movie was a mess. The plot was non-existent and this was just one of those movies that you were like wtf is happening. I had no idea what to expect when watching this. Robert Downey Jr. did have an awesome performance even though it was hard to follow why he was doing the things he was doing

Money. Someone needed a paycheck. That is why this film exists with these people in it.

The idea is good - two girls find out by accident that they have been dating the same guy for a year. They decide to confront him. But I didn't find Blake's excuses funny at all - in fact, I wondered what the two girls were still doing at his apartment after the first 15 minutes of the movie at all.

Three people talking way too much about way too little. I abandoned it after 30 minutes. Its a shame - it might have been something. 'Interview' managed more with two actors, and Buscemi isn't pretty.

While it would definitely work better on stage, this is an acting tour de force.... While both Heather Graham and Natasha Gregson Wagner give us fully-fleshed, hot blooded performances, this movie is THE testament to the astounding talents of Robert Downey, Jr. What we always knew he had is on full display, and he is riveting!

Wasn't that TV show?

Robert Downey, Jr. was excellent as always, but Natasha Gregson Wagner's performance was equivalent to a high school play.

Two young ladies named Carla (Heather Graham) and Lou (Natasha Gregson Wagner) strike up a conversation while waiting outside of an apartment building for their boyfriends. It's not long into their conversation when they discover that they are each dating the same guy: a narcissistic and arrogant actor named Blake (Robert Downey, Jr.). Angered and bewildered over his deception, the two decide to team up, break into his apartment, and confront him when he gets home.

I think this is probably what Les Diaboliques might be to an extent if it wasn't a horror/thriller. It's a darkly comedic dramedy about love, lust and commitment in the late 90s, and a really nice and underrated gem.

It's definitely got the vibe of a stage play, mostly due to the minimal cast, and the fact that it takes place entirely in front of or inside Blake's apartment. It was also shot almost totally in sequence and plays out almost completely in real time.

I don't want to spoil how the confrontation plays out, as that's where the joy of the film lies, but I will say that I was surprised by it, and totally didn't know what to expect or where the film was going.

The writing is pretty strong for the most part, though things do slip somewhat near the end. What I really didn't expect from this is how it starts off like a typical fluffy romcom, but ends up being something actually worth of contemplation and serious discussion. Awesome.

It's not perfect, but this is overall a really strong piece of work. It's got great casting and performances, it's about something, and it both entertains and gives the brain something to think about. Well done.

why did this feel like a recorded play? Oh, because it was was done in 11 days. the other female was not a good actress, and hence painful to watch.

supposed to be charming, but it's not.

This is an argumentive, light hearted, and insensitive film about cheating. Hit and miss film, that plays with emotions. Robert Downey Jr. is scum after he comes home,with both girlfriends furious demanding explaination. With crying, and screaming Downey struggles to juggle both girls fiercly attacking his dignity. Every intense moment with either girl gave him hard on's. His resolution? To forgive, and start over with a romp in the sheet altogether, who's down for a threesome?
