FALLING IN LOVE… EVEN THE EXPERT IS CONFUSED.
When New York City firefighter Patrick Sullivan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) fiancée breaks off their engagement after taking advice from a radio host (Uma Thurman), he comes up with a plan to exact revenge… Unconvincing from the start, the plan only leads Morgan and Thurman into one situation after another that’s supposed to be hilarious but only feels forced. Maybe this romantic comedy would have worked (slightly) better with different leads; she’s hysterical most of the time and he’s far too bland.
2008-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed by Griffin Dunne. Cast: Uma Thurman (Emma Lloyd), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Patrick Sullivan), Colin Firth (Richard Braxton), Sam Shepard, Isabella Rossellini, Keir Dullea.
