Editorial Reviews

ME MYSELF I is a wonderfully uplifting and inspiring movie by a bunch of Australian filmmakers -- sort of an adult-themed FREAKY FRIDAY. Rachel Griffiths stars as Pamela Dickson, a thirtysomething journalist yearning with a passion to connect emotionally with another person. She lives in the past, clinging psychologically to the scenario of "What if I had accepted that marriage proposal from the man of my dreams?" long ago. Little does she know that SHE DID, but that Pamela Dickson is wondering, "What if I had said no?" Through a twist of fate, the two Pams meet and magically change places, each learning valuable lessons about why they made the choices that they did ... and why they're infinitely better human beings for having done so. The film is delivered with an adult wit (some relatively strong sexual themes pervade a significant portion of the film), and the acting by Ms. Griffiths -- as well as all of the principals -- is right on. While the filmmakers could've taken a wrong turn to make this romantic comedy into a tragedy of mid-life angst, they stepped clear of it and, instead, delivered a compact story that deals with one woman's reaction to life's unexpected foibles. In short, ME MYSELF I is a wonderful story with only a single flaw: alas, it could never happen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Choices of the Heart March 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie showcases the wonderful talents of Rachel Griffiths in a dual role. Through the wonders of film, we meet Pam (Griffiths) originally as the girl wonder, a sought-after but insecure writer with a busy single life. To give herslf confidence, she chants self-help slogans which she also has posted all over her apartment.
In an odd turn of fate (and the fantasy wrought by film), Pam is able to see what would have happened if she had instead married her childhood sweetheart and had three children. After being hit by a car (driven by herself), Pam is transported into an alternate universe and is able to compare her two "lives".
A delightful, intelligent movie, one I would highly recommend for its humor and its thought-provoking plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely, and Hilariously Uplifting "What If..." Film February 3, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Honestly, the only thing about this film that would even make me *think* to give it less than five stars is the somewhat-cheesy and obvious speech given by Pamela Dickson at the end, when the two Pamelas reunite. Other than that, I think this is a charming, funny, and extremely uplifting film trying to address the age old question--"what if...?"
As other reviewers have, I see the obvious smackings of *Sliding Doors,* *It's a Wonderful Life,* *The Family Man* and other films. Despite its similarites to movies that touch on similar questions though, something about *Me Myself I* is fresh--standing out from all the others.
Griffiths portrays the Pamelas with great talent, perfectly capturing the wealth of emotions experienced by the main character, Pamela Drury, as she tries to manage in the shoes of her alternate self, Pamela Dickson. She isn't simply a caricature of a young, confident urban woman. She's keenly aware of (and, in some ways, initially longing for) the different paths that her life could have taken and she's touched by the experiences she could have had (and ends up having, briefly) in this alternate life.
Yes, I suppose there could have been flashier effects when the two Pamelas meet and reunite, but the film seems to try to tackle the subject realistically, instead of fantastically--opting for more down-to-earth scenes. There were also questions raised that were never really addressed in the film. However, the nature of the movie suggests that all this is natural. One can't simply walk into someone else's life and then walk out again, understanding it completely and having all the loose ends tied neatly up at the conclusion. Neither of these are faults. They are choices, which I personally believe to have been well-made ones.
This film *definitely* ranks up there as one of my favorites for its charm, wit, and inspirational outlook. If anyone else out there appreciates these qualities, I *highly* recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie asks "What If?" But Ends on an Up Note October 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Rachel Griffiths shines in this very entertaining/interesting Australian film about a woman trying to decide if she'd rather be Bridget Jones (a struggling Singleton with a great career, but no steady relationship/home-life), or a happily (?) married mother of two.
In this film, the single and depressed heroine comes face-to-face with herself as a married mother of two. The man "she" has married is her ex from 13 years before, who she had always regretted breaking up with. A second man, who is another possible life-mate, is introduced to both of the women, with mysterious implications. The film goes on to explore the dimensions of each woman's life, the one, a single woman with a solid career in journalism who is independent but miserable and lonely, the other a mother who at times feels under-appreciated and as if her work at a woman's magazine is considered secondary to her role as wife and mother, and who at other times is ecstatic in the fulfillment and love that her family life gives her. The film is genuinely interesting/intriguing in its exploration of possibilities and second chances. Griffith's acting, especially after she "becomes," in an instant, a wife and mother after many sad years on her own, is very real and engaging. You identify with her right away, and think, "my god, how hard that would be, figuring everything out on the turn of a dime." It also makes you appreciate the sacrifices women make in their lives to be good wives and mothers, and at the same time, the amazing paybacks in love, intimacy and growth that these choices allow for. The movie is really about the incredible capacity of love to create self-renewal and allow us to live life more fully.
