Blah, blah, blah.This is supposedly labelled as a 'chick movie,' right? Well, I went to see this with two of my chick friends, and I'll tell you right now, I wasn't too impressed and neither were they. Except I think I was the only one in the crowd that didn't end up sniffling.
Meg Ryan's a surgeon, and her job is finally taking a toll on her. Unsatisfied with her job, her boyfriend, and just life in general, she seems to be looking for something else. I have a few problems with this from the beginning. I mean, how could someone that young (looking) possibly be a surgeon? Who would take her seriously with those little bouncing curls? But, I have to give her points for playing Hendrix in the O.R.
Anyway, Nic "gives up forever to touch her," yadda yadda yadda, you know the drill. They're supposed to live happily ever after, but somehow that just doesn't seem to be in the cards. I'm thinking that God was a little miffed about Nic giving up his angelhood just to be with a mortal woman and all. You know how it goes.
What got me about this movie is in the supposedly emotional and climatic scene, the acting seemed to become <i>really</i> wooden and completely unglued, which was rather confusing as Cage and Ryan are both capable (not great, of course) actors. I guess I can't say it was very surprising, as through the course of the movie the direction could be described as "stilted".If you must see it. See it. But don't say I didn't warn you.
