Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

I Could Never Be Your Woman is an Amy Heckerling film in the very best sense: very funny, culturally relevant, a little bitter and a little sweet. Heckerling's body of work is often labeled inconsistent: On the plus side, you have teen classics Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless, both of which captured the '80s and '90s zeitgeists perfectly and were huge commercial and critical successes. On the other, more disappointing side, we find the Look Who's Talking trilogy and A Night at the Roxbury. After her last foray behind the camera, the mildly funny but pretty uninteresting film The Loser, Heckerling has come back with an extremely entertaining and likeable movie that has unfortunately been overshadowed by a lot of controversy regarding the film's release and studio politics. I Could Never Be Your Woman is a movie about Rosie, a divorced woman in her 40s (Michelle Pfeiffer) and the younger man she falls in love with (the perennially likeable Paul Rudd). It is also a movie about youth-obsessed Hollywood, celebrity culture, and the inevitability of aging. Rosie is the mother of a teenage daughter (Atonement's Saoirse Ronan) and struggles to raise her daughter apart from the warped narcissistic values of Hollywood, while being in a position of perpetuating those same values (Pfeiffer plays the creator and producer of a teen TV show). While the movie is otherwise a jumbled mess of themes and plot points, Heckerling succeeds in keeping it cohesive. With this A-list cast, Heckerling's strong pedigree, and a genuinely enjoyable script, this is a film that didn't deserve a straight-to-video-release. --Kira Canny

5.0 out of 5 stars I Could Always Watch This Movie March 3, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Michelle Pfeiffer shines February 13, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical Pfeiffer once again!! February 28, 2008
Format:DVD
I waited and waited for this movie to be released either to theaters or DVD-finally purchased it and rec'd it for Valentines Day. What a treat as all Pfeiffer movies are. One reviewer said she's nearly 55 - sorry but she's only 49 - turns 50 on 4/29/08. I never looked that good at 49-she is amazing. The film is light and cute - not a major drama piece people. If you enjoy a nice film, no sex scenes,no bad language, just a feel good movie then this is it! Shame on the director for not having the good sense to get her film away from Mr. Martinez and into the hands of a reliable company to distribute this to the theaters. According to the article in Entertainment Weekly-they even had Michelle take a cut in pay to keep the costs down. She was all set to do the PR for the film and there wasn't enough money for advertising. I don't blame her for bailing and saying it was not what she signed up to do. She held up her end of the bargain and delivered an enjoyable movie! On a personal note,
hope Michelle doesn't cave in for any plastic surgery - she earned every one of those lines and looks fab! When is she going to record an album???? Voice is great! Thanks Michelle for another great DVD for my collection. Can't wait for Personal Effects.

Format:DVD
Even before the obligatory clip is shown of The Graduate, I was thinking how great Michelle Pfeiffer would be as the predatory Mrs. Robinson in a remake. Unfortunately, while the plot takes its cues from the complications of an older woman-younger man affair, there is little else that director/screenwriter Amy Heckerling's 2007 comedy has in common with Mike Nichols's seminal 1967 classic except for a mostly winning cast. The whole venture feels very scattered and rather dated in its cultural references (the production was shelved for over two years), and Brian Tufano's washed-out cinematography, in particular when the lens is on Pfeiffer, is disappointing. On the upside is Pfeiffer herself, who manages to look sensational at 47 despite the technical deficiencies and appears relaxed and assured despite the unimaginative ways Heckerling drives the cliché-driven story.

Set in LA (though filmed primarily in London), the film stars Pfeiffer as Rosie, both a successful TV sitcom producer in a cruelly youth-oriented industry and a recently divorced mother raising her adolescent daughter Izzie through puberty. Similar to the set-up of Jake Kasdan's The TV Set, Rosie uses her daughter as a litmus test for a teen sitcom called "You Go Girl", which seems like a cross between Saved by the Bell and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In a casting call, she meets the boyishly charming Adam, and sparks inevitably fly despite an age gap of at least fifteen years.
