My wife and I recently rented I Could Never Be Your Woman, and I really liked it (so much that I’m writing a review of a movie in English, not my norm). My thoughts:
I don’t know why this went straight to DVD, but I really enjoyed this silly little romantic comedy about a twentysomething television actor who falls in love with a fortysomething producer. Michelle Pfeiffer (the fortysomething), continues to look absolutely stunning at age 50 (in real life). Paul Rudd is very funny and has a dance routine that rivals Napoleon Dynamite‘s. As a conoisseur of Jon Lovitz, I know he is most hilarious in appropriate doses: this movie gets it just right! Fred Willard plays Michelle Pfeiffer’s boss who is obsessed with youth jargon; he isn’t at his A Mighty Wind (Wha’ happened?) best but still does nice work. And the icing on the cake is not one but two cameos from Henry Winkler, with one Fonzie “he-e-e-ey” and one shot of him reading Sartre. (I love Henry Winkler.)
I gave it an 8 / 10 (which equals great but not life changing); my wife gave it a 6 / 10 (fun but not exceptional). Content: PG-13 but I honestly can’t remember why. Surely some language, and it implies the existence of sex.
