Product Description

What do you do if you're about to get married and you've got cold feet? If you're Max Abbitt (David Schwimmer), you ask your best friend Jay (Jason Lee) to sleep with your fiancee. Max, a sportscaster dedicated to playing the field, and the beautiful, intelligent Samantha Andrews (Mili Avital) are a mismatch made in heaven. Jay, who recently had his heart broken, couldn't be unhappier for them. Before he knows it, Max is giving up swinging singlehood, but the thought of one woman for the rest of his life suddenly throws Max into a panic. Max reasons that if Samantha cheats on him first, he'll be off the hook. When he asks Jay to help him "test" the relationship, not only does Jay think Max is deranged, but Jay wants nothing to do with the schemes. Unfortunately, a little compromising finds Jay and Samantha and Max in an awkward position. Kissing a Fool, the romantic comedy about commitment, friendship and love in the '90s.

Amazon.com

This so-so romance is patently predictable. Will the good girl end up with the bad boy or the nice guy? The premise would have us believe that a sleazy, none-too-bright sportscaster (David Schwimmer) has fallen madly in love with a classy, intelligent book editor (Mili Avital). To test her loyalty, Schwimmer asks his best buddy (Jason Lee) to romance Avital.

The likable aspects of this tired triangle concern the wraparound narration, featuring the ever-humorous Bonnie Hunt. She relates this complicated romance to rapt guests at a wedding. The marriage in question is between Avital and a supposed mystery man. The problem is that there is never much of a mystery. Or much of a romance. --Rochelle O'Gorman

    I first saw this movie because I liked Jason Lee's acting in Chasing Amy. While that is a good reason to see it, the movie provides much more. Schwimmer gets to play a role that is the complete opposite of Ross, his character on "Friends." I also agree with other reviewers in that this movie has some of the funniest one-liners I've heard in a long time. Just give it a chance. The bad reviews for this movie usually come from an older crowd. This movie is obviously for a younger audience; people 18 to 30 years old.

    I have no idea how this movie got panned. While I saw it on a whim at a friend's house (i.e., I probably wouldn't have rented it on my own), it was HYSTERICAL. Like "Swingers," mentioned by the other reviewer, it's a "quote" flick--meaning that you'll be spewing the best lines at unsuspecting friends/family for months to come. Sure, Schwimmer is Schwimmer--no great stretch--but Avital is gorgeous and Lee is hysterical.
    Trust me: after you see this, you'll know what these lines mean: -"That's good, 'cause you suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccked!" -"Whatup, Chicago?"
    Granted, the premise is somewhat preposterous, but who cares! Pay attention to the opening scene, where Schwimmer/Avital tell conflicting stories about their first date--good payoff!

    This soundtrack and movie was in my opinion highly underrated by critics across the nation. This excellent score mixes in the awesome rhythms of the Mighty Blue Kings with that of the classic voice of Etta James. The Kissing a Fool soundtrack is the perfect sound for that romantic date however, I felt that the monologue included in the album was a bit dampening on the overall success that it should have received. I was also dissapointed to find that the Harry Connick Jr. songs heard in the movie which fit so elequently, we not included on this soundtrack. All in all, this is a good buy for any fan of swing, love, or the movie.

    It has all the elements to being a classic, the funny man with a broken heart, the suave man on the go too busy to have a serious relationship. Then there's the whole best friends and a woman in between, who does she pick? The actors in this movie solidified the storyline to make it into a potential classic. Jason Lee and the sarcastic humor and David Schwimmer playing a non-dorky character was a nice switch that he pulled off magnificently. So buy it or rent it, just get your hands on this movie.

    I'm not much into the love story thing but this one definately got my attention. I am fully in agreement that true love can't be manufactured or put on in pretense. Just the same, untrue love can't continue without being found out eventually. This was a funny movie that also makes you think. It was not until the last ten minutes of the film that I felt sure of the ending plot, (a rarity in most of todays movies) something I like in a movie. I find it hard to believe that this movie did not go farther in the public. I can surely understand all of the professional reviewers giving it a poor grade. As a general rule, what they dislike, I find to be a good movie and I think the public also. This one slipped by most movie goers.

    What's with the bl***dy critics?! They obviously don't know a good movie when they see one. "Kissing A Fool" is an excellent film. One of the best comedies I've seen in years. David Schwimmer, Jason Lee and Mili Avital play their roles well - they have very good chemistry. I never miss a Jason Lee film - even if it's something as lousy as "Heartbreakers". Because he never let's you down. I rented "Kissing A Fool" a couple of years ago and recently bought it on DVD so I could watch it a million times more.

    This movie, hands down, is worth owning. You have a breakout performance by Jason Lee and an always solid second lead by Friends' David Schwimmer. Most importantly, this movie has very clever and well written dialogue regarding a circle of late 20 somethings in 1990's Chicago who are living the ups and downs of single dating life. You have humor, wit, unexpected lover drama and all around good cinema. This movie keeps your attention from the getgo, does not let go--based on its story telling style. I'm in my early 30's and love this film, my girlfriend is mid-20's and loves this film. And yes, even my 63 year old parents thought this film was particularly captivating over a recent family holiday weekend. Buy it. Watch it once a year. It gets better with each viewing.

    I thought this movie was really funny and not overly sappy.A chic-flick that guys can enjoy too. Does anyone that has seen this know the name of the book(or the author) that Jay gives to Max?With the saying about love not being found where it doesn't already exist.
