Under the Tuscan Sun Reviews
Best of all, it manages to capture much of the warmth of being in one of the most beautiful and hospitable places on earth. The Tuscan setting, Diane Lane and a wonderful supporting cast save this from from being the dreary chick flick it might have been. An excellent choice for whenever your spirit needs a lift.
Some really beautiful locations and a really nice sense of place.
This seems to be filled with bad acting, stereotypes that cross the line on being insulting and outright ripoffs of other works. I know the film is from 2003 but plenty of other works stand up years later when you watch them.
I am usually a fan of RomComs but this one was a total turn off. Not far into the film, I was thinking that the best decision made by any of the characters was the one the husband made to leave this whiny, mopey, self-involved woman. In a brief overview, she is just overwhelmed by affluent white people problems.
If cliches and saccharine platitudes are your thing, then this movie is for you. If you are looking for depth, good writing and multi-dimensional characters are your thing, then pass. I was able to walk out of the room several times and not miss one interesting plot point. This is a definite pass.
