Who said you have to win to be a champion? Slava Kolotiloff, a schoolteacher from a sleepy seaside town by the name of "Fingers" comes to conquer Moscow with the manuscript to his first novel in hand. But instead, quite by accident, he conquers the heart of a beauty named Nadia (Milla Jovovich). As their wedding approaches, Slava needs only to quit his job and tie up loose ends back in "Fingers" before returning to Moscow to start a new life with his new bride. But due to a number of bizarre circumstances he is unable to leave and back in the big city, the wedding goes on regardless as Nadia has to fend off the attentions of her ex-boyfriend Danya, who seems ready to do whatever it takes to win her back.

I mean, there's not even a movie poster uploaded to RT for this 'movie'. It's that bad.Yeah, let me spoil it for you: this movie is bad. Once seen, it cannot be unseen. The plot is so veil thin that even the CSI can't find it. I want my 95 minutes back now, mr. Dean Jones!I guess this is what you get when you give a makeup artist a budget to go out write and direct on his own. News flash, Dean -- it isn't good. Now I see you've finished production on 'Dark Awakening'. Please know that that's already on my 'avoid'-list.As far as this movie goes, everything's sub-par: the plot, the script, the pacing, the editing, the acting. Yes, oh my, the 'acting' is dreadful here. I was genuinely shocked to see Bruce Dern credited for this pile of utter cr*p, he was nominated for an Oscar this year. I guess someone on the board saw his involvement in Coffin Baby and Bruce could wave bye-bye to his 'actor in a leading role' win.Every word typed on this movie is one too many so I will stop here.Verdict: avoid.

But I guess the road to love never really is a straight line, is it? After the death of her fianc, Gray (Garner) reevaluates her life and finds out about her fianc's child from another woman. Along the way she falls in love with Fritz (Timothy Olyphant). I've always found Olyphant to be incredibly sexy but he usually plays really sleazy characters. In this flick he was great. He shows that he can play more than sleazy characters. Kevin Smith is hilarious in this flick giving words of wisdom throughout from Celestial Seasonings Tea (incidentally his job is to procure quotes for the tea). This is one I did want to see in the theater and I'm glad I saw it on the plane. Recommended.

Wendy S (jp) wrote: Whatever Al Pacino touches turns to gold. Initially getting past the schwanky music in the intro scene was a hard pill to swallow... but see it through... Pacino by the typewriter is worth it. Explores the changing value of marriage (and having children) and ultimately Pacino's depth of character when his wife leaves him ... and his script is sinking. REALLY enjoyed the kids' lines! Funny, genuine and well rounded. Especially being a movie made in the 80's, it tackles both the uncommitted mother topic who pulls apart her family whenever she gets an itch, and the experience through kids' eyes as far as what pain is endured when the family isn't solid. All round romantic, funny, realistic film that doesn't soft step around the difficult issues.
