Movie Reviews

A good time for Jon Stewart fans--and most other people.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you want to see a fun romantic comedy, I recommend this movie. After Max (James LeGros) turns down his girlfriend Elizabeth's (Jennifer Beals) idea of marriage, the relationship takes an ugly turn. Max begins to think she is having an affair. This suspicion is strengthened by the testimony of Lena (Drew Barrymore)--who wants to be more than friends with Max--after she confirms that she saw Liz with another man. This movie is also sweetened by the seemingly small role of Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) who delivers great comedy the way only he can."
Drew in 1997
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you liked Drew Barrymore in her Mad Love punk phase, than I suggest you rent this movie. Drew fans won't be disappointed, she is featured more in this film unlike her other current direct-to-video Best Men. She's one of the main characters, however this movie is told from three different characters, so you have to wait for Drew in the second act to tell her part till you see much of her. And then trust me there's no regrets. She plays a young woman who is trying to contol her destiny to get the man she loves ( James LeGros ), whose girlfriend ( Jennifer Beals ) is possibly cheating on him."
I loved the caring guy...
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I would skim the first 2 chapeter of this movie for the plot and move to Elizabeth's chapter. This has to be the best part of the movie. Jon Stewert (of Daily Show fame) excells as the Boyfriend every sane girl would want. He sure swept me of my feet. The other actors were pretty good too, I liked Elizabeth, the cheater you can't help but love. All in all the end was a great movie..."
