This movie--and it's a movie, not a film--features contrived plot twists, an improbable romance, and predictable writing. It's light in every way--just a little scary, just a little romantic, just a little funny. This is not sophisticated movie-making.

However, I have moments when I want a little brain candy to keep my interest without stretching my intellect. And in those moments, I confess, this is what I drag out. Here's the plot: two rival newspaper reporters investigate a suspicious train crash, despise each other, are endangered, fall in love, solve the case. I hope I didn't give too much away. Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte don't have the snappy reparte that the screenwriters were so obviously going for, but close. They're both great-looking and winsome enough to root for. Predictably, Robert's character is smart and sassy, while Nolte plays a womanizing rogue. The glowering but still incompetent bad guys threaten the daring duo without disturbing your dreams. It's not the screwball comedy to which it's paying homage, but it's a grade-B imitation of an enjoyable genre, and sometimes that's enough. Watch it with butter on your fingers.

The problem with this movie is, that the makers just could not decide what sort of movie they were making. Is it a romantic comedy? Is it a thriller? It might even be an action movie! Now one could say that I Love Trouble offers something to any kind of audience, but the truth is that it has become to much of a compromise. Nolte and Roberts try hard and their performances go a long way towards saving a rather uninteresting movie, but personally I think that their efforts should have been used on a better script producing a better balanced story. On the whole this is a nice movie, but not something you want to see more than one time.

This movie is a fun mystery with all the elements I enjoy - one of my favorites in a long list of good movies. The chemistry between the main characters is very good. I like that I knew the two would get together, and throughly enjoyed that their getting together was so entertaining. The story line is good as well. All in all, one of my favorite movies of all time - one I plug in when I want to be distracted from the stresses of life.

Ever since I was a kid, I've loved Julia Roberts films, especially this one (as well as "Conspiracy Theory," "Runaway Bride," "Erin Brockovich," and "Pretty Woman"). I enjoyed Nick Nolte and Julia's deal to be like the Hardy Boys teaming up with Nancy Drew to solve the mystery. The use of a wild goose chase is one you have to see to believe.
I was happy to find this film and for such a reasonable price, though I had one fear: that it would be like my DVD copies of "Runaway Bride" and "Eight Legged Freaks"--MISSING MATERIAL FROM THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. I know there is the line on the back of the case that says it's presented in widescreen format and that the black bars are normal; however, I still have my VHS copies of these two films, and it's like the restoring company(or companies) decided to do the work to make it visually dynamic, but then took the lazy route and added the black bars over screen material instead of actually making it widescreen!
I do hope that a company will someday restore these films to their full glory, but for now, at least the parts I can see look good. Thus the four star rating instead of five.

I liked this movie. It's a fun no brainer that you can watch for entertainment without having to think to hard. Nolte and Roberts both do a good job. I did think the very ending was a little corny, but the rest of the movie made up for it. The other thing about this movie is it can be for different age family members.

Not a remake of the 1947 detective film with the same title, this one stars Nick Nolte and Julia Roberts as two competing Chicago newspaper reporters who meet while investigating a mysterious train crash. They eventually untangle a conspiracy involving corrupt scientists and cancer causing goat milk. The film is intended as an homage to Howard Hawks' comedies like "His Girl Friday" and "Bringing up Baby," but due to the seriousness of the crime and lack of chemistry between the two leads, midway through starts feeling more like "Silkwood."

Husband and wife team Charles Shyer and Nancy Meyers previously milked the forties screwball comedy formula with "Father of the Bride," but there are too many unsettling red herrings and not enough real love to make this one worth struggling through.

Format: DVD
I Love Trouble is a lightweight romantic comedy of helium-filled proportions. It is effectively a vehicle for everyone's favourite movie darling of the early 1990s, Julia Roberts, to have some fun and look lovely while getting one up on the dastardly male lead played by Nick Nolte.

Nolte plays Peter Brackett, a veteran newspaper columnist for the respected Chicago Chronicle. Ever the ladies man, Brackett can do little wrong in the eyes of the bevy of woman he attracts, his loyal readers, and even his grumpy editor. He manages to fly by the seat of his pants with deadlines looming and get his stories filed on time, every time (even if it does mean plagiarising himself!). Having just released a novel, Brackett is about to hit the book tour circuit, and life is looking good for this charming, yet slightly sleazy bachelor. This is of course until journalistic competition, in the form of the lovely Sabrina Peterson (Julia Roberts), comes along with her quick wit, sharpened pencil, keen nose for a story, and obligatory short skirt.

In the end, this film runs out of steam and the ludicrous and contrived ending is probably 30 minutes too late in arriving. The actual train crash plot becomes secondary to the romantic battle between the two leads, which rarely sparks into anything other than light-hearted banter and some clichéd one-liners. There are plenty of awfully large plot holes in the story, some wide enough to fit Julia Roberts' smile through sideways, and you will probably find yourself laughing out loud at some of the contrived scenarios. If it was an effort to recapture some of the past glories from the screwball comedies of the late 1930s, it failed miserably.
