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.

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.

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.

I used to watch this movie off and on many years ago but apparently on VHS because I couldn't find it on DVD. Of course, I don't even own a VCR anymore, so buying this on DVD online was a little more expensive than I would have originally wanted. I was even hesitant because of some of the negative reviews. I thought that my memory of the movie was off and that perhaps it wasn't as good as I remembered. After buying it and watching it, though, I'm very glad I got it again. I remembered everything pretty well, but I also liked Nick Nolte movies from this time frame. So, this one was a good one. I am also a Julia Roberts fan so even the moments where it might have felt like her acting was "blah" it was still good enough for me.

The main reason I like it, though, is that the idea of news reporters actually digging into a story because there is something being hidden is a nice thought. I rarely see a news story these days that I feel like they have even made any effort. They sure don't follow up with anything locally so this movie is a nice difference. I realize there were complaints by some that there was too much going on and that the story didn't follow one thing, but that's kind of the way that movies go. There was the main story being chased by two reporters that were rivals and had an obvious attraction. The "love story" is kind of behind the scenes which is better in my opinion because it is really more of an action suspense movie anyway. The humor is OK but not horrible. It IS a 90's movie so you can't expect it to be as good as one from nowadays!

Overall, it is entertaining so I will give it 5 stars. The DVD worked and wasn't actually too bad of quality. What more can you really expect from an older movie?

I've seen I Love Trouble several times and it never gets old. It is from the early 90s but is a story that is still entertaining today. Nick Nolte and Julia Roberts play competing reporters at different newspapers in Chicago. When a major story breaks, they both compete to scoop each other, but ultimately decide to team up when it becomes clear that their lives are endangered. Julia Roberts shines in one of her first leading roles, showing us what got her to be known as America's sweetheart. Nick Nolte is also fantastic. He is a very good actor who doesn't get many good roles anymore, because of his past. It's good to see him playing a likeable character instead of making a cameo as a psychotic drunk. I Love Trouble, and I love this movie. It's a great story with an excellent cast and thoroughly entertaining.

I remember he said she said, which this movie I am sure borrowed off of that idea, competitors in the news team, and trying to out scoop one another, this one leads to a killer trying to kill Nick Nolte and Julia Robert's characters, for going overboard and trying to get the story first, so they team up to survive. He said she said, was tasteless and full of junk john hughes style, and this one is way better than that one, even if Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins are two good actors, and it had one scene that is a memory in itself... She throws the coffee cup at his head. This one had more humor, action, love, and twists.
