Editorial Reviews

Who knew that when he ordered the special, he d get the dish of his life? David Duchovny ('the X-Files ) and Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting) ignite sparks in this warm-hearted winner (JeffCraig, 'sixty Second Preview ) about a widower and a waitress who meet and fall in love. Featuring an incredible all-star cast, this hilarious romantic comedy delivers a lot of laughs, tears and joysthat will make your spirits soar. It took a lot of cajoling to get Bob (Duchovny), a recently widowed architect, to go on a blind date at a quirky Irish-Italian eatery. Once there, he's smitten instantly not with his date but with the sharp-witted waitress, Grace (Driver). With unsolicitedhelp from Grace's matchmaking grandfather (Carroll O Connor), Bob asks her out. And as their relationship blossoms, everything seems to be going great, until an unbelievable truth is revealed one that could easily break both of their hearts for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absoulute Gem From Bonnie Hunt August 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Director and co-writer Bonnie Hunt delivers the goods in "Return To Me," a touching story of two deserving people who are afforded a second chance at love and happiness. When we meet Grace (Minnie Driver), she is suffering with heart disease and awaiting a donor for a transplant. Architect-builder Bob Rueland (David Duchovny) is happily married to Elizabeth (Joely Richardson), they are deeply in love, and Hunt quickly establishes just how perfect their lives are together; so perfect, in fact, it becomes somewhat unsettling because you know that tragedy of some kind or other is imminent. When it comes, the transition is handled succinctly and with the skill of a seasoned professional. When Elizabeth dies, Grace receives her heart. A year later, Bob, still mourning the loss of his wife, meets Grace at the Irish-Italian restaurant owned by her grandfather (Carroll O'Connor), where she works as a waitress. Neither are aware of the intimate link they share to the heart that has given Grace her life. In the hands of a less savvy director, the story at this point could easily go astray and become mired in coincidence and cliche. Hunt never comes close to allowing this to happen, however, and instead hits every note squarely on the head so that the plot fairly resonates with precision and timing. A veteran character actress herself (she plays Grace's closest friend, Meg, here), she seems to know instinctively just when to add the right light touch to offset the drama, then fleshes it all out with an array of great characters,especially Robert Loggia, as Angelo, the "Greatest Italian chef in Chicago," and James Belushi as Meg's husband, Joe. There are no wasted moments in this film; the story moves right along and takes you with it. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie - Don't Miss Audio Commentary December 25, 2000
By edzaf
Format:DVD
"Return To Me" is a very likeable romantic comedy starring David Duchovny, breaking away from X-Files mold, and the always engaging Minnie Driver. While we wait for kismet to bring these two characters together, we are treated to a fine (and impressive) supporting cast of characters head by Carroll O'Connor, Robert Loggia, David Alan Grier, James Belushi, and writer-director Bonnie Hunt. There is little suspense that the two main characters will find each other and in the end find new life and love -- but this is the movies after all!
For DVD buyers and renters, the true gem is the audio commentary by Bonnie Hunt and co-writer Don Lake. This highly recommended bonus to the DVD version is at least worth another "star." Hunt, who is one of the best interviewees on talk shows, engages in a informative and a very humorous dialogue with Lake throughout the movie. By all means, after watching the movie go back and watch the movie again with Hunt and Lake. Hunt's dry humor will make you laugh out loud at times as she speaks of her bad make-up job in her first scene to the seemingly dozens of family members that she placed throughout the film. You will also get a real appreciation for the art of film-making. "Return To Me" was Hunt's directorial debut and it is fascinating to listen to the care and meticulous detail that she placed into this film (music selections, editing, etc.). It is definitely one of the best audio-commentary tracks that I have heard to date and almost makes you even like the film more.

Format:DVD
This is perhaps one of the most underrated movies I have ever seen.
David Duchovny and Minnie Driver star as Gracie Briggs and Bob Rueland, two people who are brought together with more than fate, but also a heart. When disaster and devastation hits Bob, he unselfishly donates his wife's organs. Gracie is in desperate need for a heart after suffering for many years with heart disease. Her heart finally does come, at the most needed moment, and it is a special heart at that.
It takes over a year for Bob to get back in the dating scene, and that's only with help from Charlie played by David-Alan Grier. When the date lands them in Gracies grandfather's (Carroll O'Connor) restaurant, Gracie is their waitress, and it's love at first sight, and their lives will be forever changed.
There is also great classic songs that sprinkle this movie with class and romance. Songs like "At Long Last Love" by Frank Sinatra and "Tenderly" by Jackie Gleason finish the movie off without any hitches only adding more detail. Bonnie Hunt and Don Lake take their first stab at writing, directing, and starring in Return To Me, and I must say it is one movie that reminds me the most of the classic romances of long ago.
Please note that if you like this film, Bonnie and Don are writing and directing a tv show on ABC this fall, called Life With Bonnie. Bonnie stars in this along with many of the stars from Return To Me. If her show is anything like the movie, then ABC will have a hit for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Me is a heart-touching movie July 20, 2000
Format:DVD
This is a delightful movie, the kind of innocent romantic comedy they used to make when Cary Grant was in his heydey and making them. Duchovny plays Bob Rueland, a handsome architect very much in love with his wife. His heart is broken when he loses her in a car accident. He follows her wishes and donates her organs for transplant. The recipient is Minnie Driver's character, spunky Grace Briggs, dying of heart disease far too young. Caroll O'Connor plays her doting grandfather who raised her and Bonnie Hunt, who wrote and directed the film, stars as Grace's best friend. Fate plays a funny trick and Bob and Grace end up meeting. There's an immediate spark between the two -- Duchovny and Driver do a wonderful job with this without going over the top. It isn't until later that Bob and Grace find out that she has his dead wife's heart. The chemistry between Duchovny and Driver is terrific. The supporting cast is also excellent -- a real joy. The end result is a fantastic movie that will actually make you feel good.
