"Kettle of Fish" is a basic romantic comedy that hopes to entertain you for a little while and then have you go on your way. I say this as a good thing because I was entertained and never felt as though the film condescended to me or treated me as though I were brain dead. There also was no ridiculous bets involved ("I bet I can make the ugly girl hot.") or massive contrivances like there are in most romantic comedies. Instead you get a warm hear, a few laughs, and a good dose of dorkiness. Mel (Matthew Modine) is forced to move back in with his subletter Ginger (Gina Gershon) after he is dumped by his girlfriend. Ginger and Mel start off by despising one another (although I never bought this particular contrivance) until they eventually become best of friends. Meanwhile Mel is making something of a fool out of himself by chasing a rich girl, Diane, around town who he met at her wedding. He even takes a job as an elevator man in her apartment so that he can spend more quality time with her. But alas, even though the rich husband has no time for the wife, the wife in turn has no time for the help. So Mel chases an unattainable girl while a great down to Earth girl is right under his nose. It's all very predictable.

What isn't predictable is how good the acting would be from the two leads. Modine's Mel is nothing more than a narcissist, but thanks to his performance we can never hate him for it. He's just doing whatever feels right and if it doesn't work out, well, oh well. Gershon, amazingly, makes the nerd look work for her and is far more attractive with that look then with that bombshell image she's been going for the past few years. I'm sure the film was going for the age old theme of men are animals. Well yes, but so are females.

Clever flick modelled on old fashioned screwball comedies of the 1930s. Think Cary Grant meets the slacker generation. Good to see Gina Gershon stretch beyond Showgirls.

i wanted to like it and was def in the mood for a good comedy and i like matthew but it just didnt come together for me and i really didnt care about these ppl. and never believed the Jina actress (i never heard of her b4) was a english doctor of fish or whhatever she was suppose to be. wasnt even amusing to me, just boring. i got up so many times to get a bite to eat and to type this as i was that un interested in this flick. guess it will go with the other 100 for sale in the used section.
