SHE JUST NEEDED A MONTH TO CHANGE HIS LIFE FOREVER.
San Francisco ad man Nelson Moss (Keanu Reeves) reluctantly shares an apartment with the very free-spirited Sara Deever (Charlize Theron) who picks a new male companion every month. The two stars reunited after The Devil’s Advocate (1997) for this remake of the 1968 film. Theron may convince Reeves that sometimes it’s better to ditch the cell and spend a day at the beach, but the movie is constantly in danger of veering into silliness and lacks the kind of romantic energy that might have given it a boost. Jason Isaacs is worth a look as a gay neighbor.
2001-U.S. 119 min. Color. Directed by Pat O’Connor. Cast: Keanu Reeves (Nelson Moss), Charlize Theron (Sara Deever), Jason Isaacs (Chaz Cherry), Greg Germann, Liam Aiken, Lauren Graham… Frank Langella.
