Anupam Kher was hilarious as K.D. especially where he dressed up as a woman to seduce both the crime bosses in the story (even if it was a figment of his imagination). I liked how the love story wasn't love at first sight because that always ruined it for me in Romeo & Juliet. I always thought it was more lust than love. The love story takes time in this movie and it's cute to see it play it out. The twists in the movie are interesting and very entertaining. The music is a plus to the good script and actors' performances.

I figure when it came out it was amazing and people saw it and went "wow!" but viewing it now it doesn't seem amazing. It isn't the kind of movie that is so bad it is amusing to watch with friends and laugh. There were certainly a few moments where we laughed at things but overall you have to appreciate the movie for trying to be educational and accurate. Movies like this are likely to have it harder when trying to withstand the "test of time." It is an interesting movie and there is a lot to appreciate but honestly, it is kind of boring here in 2007.

The Dracs do not take too kindly to the human's behavior and a battle ensues. A human and drac pilot crash on a deserted planet with many of their friends dying around them. The Drac and the human will have to work together to survive. "What am I supposed to do, run down to the market for a jar of baby Drac food?"Wolfgang Petersen, director of Troy, Das Boot, The Never Ending Story, Air Force One, Outbreak, Poseidon, Shattered, and In the Line of Fire, delivers Enemy Mine. The storyline for this picture is fairly entertaining and an interesting addition to the science fiction genre. The acting by Dennis Quaid and Louis Gossett Jr. was excellent. "Where the hell has he been?"I remembered thoroughly enjoying this picture as a youth and was happy to come across it on HBOGO. This was very fun, entertaining and well executed. This isn't a perfect picture by any means, but the characters were well delivered. I do recommend seeing this."He fulfilled his vow."Grade: B

You Might Say It Has Heart, But No (Soul) Style Or Substance. Kinda Feels Half Empty.

Then I went back to Netflix...and saw several scathing reviews. So here's what I think: Like a lot of other people who get online to carp and moan about every single thing in life, these people go into a film just WANTING to pick it apart. Yeah, I spent some bad years with someone like that...I'll pass on that attitude. What I saw was a great movie. Perhaps I approach entertainment differently - I understand the suspension of disbelief that's required to enjoy fiction. Maybe "reality TV (an oxymoron) has spoiled things for people who watch it. I don't know as I don't find watching bitchy people bitch about everything entertaining, nor does it even remotely mirror reality, unless you're.... a bitch. So...I like this movie a lot. It's hard to define what it is that makes us American, but one of the things that makes Europeans European is their willingness to explore. I don't think I've ever met a neophobic European, nor a European xenophobe, but I meet both in the US regularly. Maybe those ARE the defining characteristics of most Americans. This film shows a lot of spirit, and a clear joy in these people that can't be put down despite the obstacles they run into. That's what I enjoyed the most about this film, and it made me happy. I wonder if the pseudo-critics who panned it have any joy or happiness in their lives.
