(fr) wrote: Adorable but corny. When I originally saw the title, I thought this was going to be about the struggles we American 20-somethings go through after high school and college. Instead, the writer of this film managed to co-op something I find very serious, and make it about a guy who can't decide whether the girl he's been with for years is "the one" just because he's getting bored and she's getting restless. From a rom-com standpoint, it was cute, if predictable. But from the point of someone actually going through a quarter-life crisis, I was highly disappointed. This guy has a full-time job, his own place, a woman in the same position who lives with him, they're both about to get promoted...and he's miserable?? Pass. It's a bunch of well-off (compared to most people in this country) 20-somethings complaining about a whole lotta nothin'!
(gb) wrote: An updated version of the classic book. Full of teen angst, mother/daughter relationship and guy troubles, with a few laughs thrown in, this film isn't the best version.. Jamie Lee Curtis however steals the show with her spectacular performance.. making it easier to watch.

Danes does a good job with the material she's given while Beckinsale just puts her head down and plays the pessimist. It's basically a "Midnight Express " for the new generation who are too lazy to watch the 1978 classic instead of this nonsense.

This film is an excellent example of that. 4 one-act plays by Eugene O'Neill set aboard a merchant ship is woven into one feature. John Wayne is topbilled and plays a Swedish (!) crew member, suffice to say he isn't all that convincing as one. However, the rest of the ensemble is simply outstanding especially Thomas Mitchell. This film also features Gregg Toland's beautiful black & white cinematography (you can definitely see why Orson Welles picked him to lens "Citizen Kane").
