Are all relationships based on lies? Jake Bianski runs a fish market in north Boston, surrounded by Italians. For years, he's carried a torch for Isabella, an ex-girlfriend now married with three children and no interest in Jake. Yet, he tells everyone she's his girlfriend, including Marisa, a veterinarian his employees set him up with at the Italian singles club. She's interested in him until he tells her about his girlfriend, then he's persistent in asking her to be his friend. As the friendship bumps along, Jake realizes that reality may be better than fantasy, but what if Isabella changes her mind about Jake, and what if it comes out that Marisa, like Jake, isn't Italian?

More depth to the dialogue and the setting would have pushed it up to the next level.

I found the acting at the beginning weak and unconvincing. Ethan Hunt's (Tom Cruise) explosion-assisted jump from a helicopter to a train, in the Chunnel, required just a bit too much suspension of belief. And finally, time has not been kind to the technology featured in this film. With all that however, I actually found myself fairly entertained and looking forward to the next in this series. Jean Reno always shows well and brings back fond memories of Big Blue (1988) and Leon (1994). Ving Rhames brings a smile but will never be anyone, other than Marsellus Wallace. Decent viewing for an aging film.
Kathryn N (fr) wrote: Classic Loach, a tale of working class struggle in post-Thatcher, Conservative-ruled Britain, a place of despairing joblessness and disintegrating community. Despite the unemployment, petty crime and crack that afflict their Lancashire housing estate, Bob (Jones) and wife Anne (Brown) remain staunch Catholics. Bob does odd jobs to put food on the table, but also because he's determined to buy their daughter her communion dress, rather than accept a loan from the priest. He's soon in hock to loan-sharks. Though the subject of Loach's film is as dark as ever, the movie is funnier than Riff-Raff, thanks to another delicious performance from Ricky Tomlinson as Bob's pal Tommy. The gags range from deadpan Northern banter to slapstick and scatology, but they don't overshadow the political acuity of Jim Allen's script , or the narrative's inexorable progress into the stuff of everyday nightmare. This is no rant, but a warm, unsentimental tribute to the working-class spirit. Superbly acted, as always, and a hugely enjoyable example of the cinema of commitment.

Lots of twitchy close-ups, voice-over narration and long, long dialogue scenes. Even with the Mystery Science Theater gang chiming in, this is long at seventy minutes.

The book is definitely better, and I'm sure it captures the grief and struggle to love again in its words so much more than this movie ever could.
