I became a Basinger fan when I saw the movie Nadine back in 1987, and it's wonderful to see her in another romantic comedy. Even better this time, because there isn't a bunch of swearing. I think the last good comedy I saw her in was My Stepmother is An Alien, and that was laugh-out-loud funny too. This one's been long overdue, and she is just wonderful in it as Pink Lady sales rep Harmony Jones. I would also like to point out that the woman is still a gorgeous knockout for her age--even better than most of today's younger starlets. Her character is amusingly glam looking, yet clean cut, completely feminine, and that's what makes her comedic performance twice as good. Corbett makes a handsome match for her as he, as well as the FBI, chases her around the country--both of them driving great looking convertibles--and the romance has a sweet clean, almost yesteryear appeal that you won't be afraid to let your older relatives watch.
Joel Zwick came up with a great concept here; Elvis impersonators getting killed off at random in some very silly and hilarious ways everytime Harmony gets within 3 feet of them, and a love affair Harmony keeps running from because she thinks Corbett is another Elvis impersonator when, in fact, it's his estranged wife (Denise Richards).Read more ›
Kim Basinger also graced the film with her combination of beauty and a talent for comedy not seen since "Nadine" or "My Stepmother Is An Alien". She should do this more often.
Kim Basinger plays a "Pink Lady" (Mary Kay) cosmetic sales lady who had met Elvis as a child. During her recent travels Elvis impersonators around her die from freak accidents. She falls in love with John Corbett (love at first sight) who she believes is also an Elvis impersonator because he carries around an Elvis suit which belongs to his soon to be ex-wife Denise Richards. The acting is pure ham, such as in Mars Attacks. The accents are overly done. The FBI agents hunting the pair are comical. The concept is original. The cast is full of stars (Tom Hanks, Sean Astin, Angie Dickinson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Pat Morita). The dialogue is so-so, perhaps the weakest aspect of the movie. The Elvis impersonators were so bad, you wanted them to die.
Thank you. Thank you very much.
