Michelle Pfeiffer aging? That should be against some kind of law of nature! She is always gorgeous and one of the best actresses of all time. This fun film has her falling for a much younger guy (Paul Rudd) with hilarious results. Now if the guy was 40 something and the girl 29 it would be entirely different and why is that? Just enjoy the great acting and writing as I did!

This was a cute movie. I really liked how Michelle Pfeiffer played her part and Paul Rudd is very funny.

What could be inane, actually sparkles. Silly and fun, snappy and sappy, bright and
entertaining. Worth the time.

I Could Always Watch This Movie
Brock LaBorde | Los Angeles, CA | 03/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Lots of fun stuff in this flick: Paul Rudd's goofiness, Tracey Ullman's cruel torturing of the lovely, yet aging, Michelle Pfeiffer, Saoirse Ronan's pre-Oscar adorableness, Jon Lovitz in a pair of short shorts that should be burned so that he can never wear them again, and, as usual, Heckerling's dead-on skewering of Hollywood's sham-glam lifestyle.
There are no implausible low-brow gags and none of the characters waste any time on the screen. A lot happens in this tight little film and at the end of it, you feel like you've been told a complete, entertaining story, which is a pretty rare thing to see in today's cinemas.
Speaking of which, this movie got shafted. Straight-up. If it had been given a decent post-production life, release, and advertising campaign, it could've put some serious booties in the theater seats and people wouldn't have felt like throwing popcorn and pickles at the screen halfway through it.
This is one of those movies that, unlike most studio-driven, profit-turning garbage pile films today that are filled with hack dialogue and desperate marketing tactics, makes use of a talented cast & crew with the purpose of making a statement (or several, in this case) about the modern world. And you get to laugh plenty before the credits roll.
Does that sound like a bad deal? I don't think so."
Michelle Pfeiffer shines
TV Critic | 02/14/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Michelle Pfeiffer gives a brilliant performance as a working mother who falls for a young man (the always funny Paul Rudd) in this light-hearted comedy. It's a shame that this movie wasn't released in theaters in the US because it's one of the best performances that Michelle Pfeiffer has given. She's fun, charming, and more beautiful then ever.
The script and direction are well done by Amy Heckerling and it's nice to see her re-team with some of the cast that shined in her crowning-achievement, Clueless (Stacey Dash, Wallace Shawn, and of course, Paul Rudd).
This is definitely a fun romantic comedy worth seeing. The supporting players are all great, especially Saoirse Ronan, who plays Michelle Pfeiffer's daughter, gives a terrific performance. Stacey Dash is fun as well playing a B-rated actress with a diva attitude."
Light-hearted, fun and rather truthful piece
Kevin Hunter | Los Angeles, CA | 02/13/2008

"Michelle Pfeiffer, who is notoriously, gifted at dark drama work stars in probably her first light comedy since she first started acting at twenty, in the early eighties. Paul Rudd shows some incredible physical comedy. This is a soft, easy laid-back romantic comedy focusing on some actually rather serious issues that society places on people, by asking them to direct their attention to the superficial and what they think is best, when in actuality what society asks is a lie, and an impossibly fictional way to live. "I Could Never Be Your Woman" ranks at the top of the lists for romantic comedies this year. I do agree with the one reviewer on here, if you want to see Michelle in an exquisite romantic comedy, check out, "One Fine Day". (For the DVD Special Features, that part is pretty much a let down, it's a boring commentary from the Director and the Producer who reveal nothing and almost don't talk through it, you wonder why they bothered to record a commentary in the first place. They should have revealed more, explained why this film missed the theaters, what happened, and a good behind the scenes featurette would've been nice to have on the special features as well.)"
