Editorial Reviews

John Travolta (From Paris with Love) joins Sean Penn (Milk), Robin Wright Penn (State of Play) and James Gandolfini (TV's The Sopranos) in this funny, hip and emotionally supercharged movie about a woman whose passion for two totally opposite men sets up an outrageously explosive love triangle!

Maureen (Robin Wright Penn) and first husband Eddie (Sean Penn) lived through some very wild times until an unforeseen crisis finally drove them apart. So when he walks back into her life after ten years, Maureen must choose between her love for husband number two (Travolta) and the electricity she shares with Eddie. With a superb cast delivering top performances—She's So Lovely is a motion picture knockout filled with vivid humor and riveting intensity!

If you read the various reviews of this movie, you will find an amazing array of responses to it. I think this is largely a function of the horrid marketing of this movie. When my friend recmmended that I watch it, I did a once-over of its packaging and decided I wasn't interested. He insisted, and so I reluctantly agreed to watch it. Despite it's packaging, this is not a sentimental romantic comedy in the "Pretty Woman" or "Look Who's Talking" vein. If this is the sort of movie you like, you should move on and not waste your time with this.
The movie is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the troubled relationship of derelict couple Eddie and Moe (played by real-life spouses Sean and Robin Wright Penn). Penn's character is dissolute, and puts Moe in the bad position of being vulnerable to the sleazy advances of a neighbor (played well by The Sopranos' James Gandolfini). When Eddie finds out what happens as a result, he becomes steadily unhinged. His performance in a barroom scene is one of the most convincing portrayals of drunken progressive madness I have seen on film.
The second part of the film benefits mainly from the introduction of John Travolta in a role that mercifully pulls back from stretching his limited acting range. This IS the Travolta we guiltily derived pleasure from before he decided he was a mega-action flick star. What follows is a somewhat unlikely but morally and emotionally challenged dilemma for Moe (Robin Penn Wright). While viewers who tend to view life in rather black-and-white terms will be horrified by this portion of the movie, open-minded viewers will have the opportunity to analyze the various components of the ensuing relationships and positions of the players. It is troublesome and problematic and so avoids easy answers or judgements.

What is it about a down and out romance like 'She's So Lovely' that seems to polarise an audience into those who see it as a trashy, confusing and unrealistic ride, and those of us that find it endearing, amusing and utterly, utterly charming. Perhaps we find a grain of truth within She's So Lovely that identifies with our own lives. Husband + wife team Sean + Robin Wright Penn deliver sterling performances and an unmistakable on-screen chemistry as they come to terms with their roller coaster relationship, and their sense of belonging in a changing society. Nobody plays the down on his luck,loveable loser quite like Penn, and Robin Wright Penn is a revelation as his ideal companion. This is the perfect antidote to all the high budget - low chemistry romance/dramas on the racks, combining superb acting and great dialogue, with an engrossing and uplifting story.

I've read interviews with Sean Penn wherin he laments the fact that this film was overlooked. But somehow I believe that they WANT this film to be 'underground'. Otherwise, how could they do such a poor job marketing it?
For starters, the title is completely misleading. "She's So Lovely" absolutely screams Romantic Chick Flick but this movie couldn't be further from that. Mabey the script's original title, "She's De Lovely," would have seemed clever once you'd seen the film, but they went with "She's So Lovely," which, frankly, (...). It makes no sense, has absolutely no relevance and misrepresents the movie.
Huge marketing error #2 is the packaging. One word: Horrible. My copy says "Demo Tape - Box Art May Vary", and I said to my friend "God, I sure hope so!". However, I see they stuck with the exact same blurry photos of the stars with a brown line over their faces...it looks like a preliminary effort for the screener box they never got around to finishing up.
I think all that served to keep a great film underground! Penn won Best Actor at Cannes for his roll. This intense character study reminded me of 'Barfly' in its unflinching look at alcoholism. We get a glimpse of the surreal worldview of someone who would smash the top off a wine bottle on the curb and chug the entire thing from the jagged edge. Like 'Barfly', this film examines these lives for their normalcy, pointing out how these motives exist in us all. The film understands that the true weirdness that exists on skid row is the same weirdness that exists in suburbia; only the surroundings have changed.
One reviewer felt "that out-of-control, crazed, alcoholic, destructive criminals and deadbeats are not suitable subjects for syrupy, violin-playing comedic romances." I demand to know why they are not suitable?

This movie is great. The last script John Cassavettes wrote, then Directed by his son Nick after his fathers death.

After reading multiple viewer revues I finally understand why people some people don't like this film. The ending is just too disturbing because it has an anti-Hollywood climax that does not finish with an obvious hero riding to save the day.

Reminds me of classic film noir where the characters are human rather than "right and moral" or "bad and evil".

Please watch, if your a fan of great acting, calssic independent cinema or film noir you'll enjoy this fine film.

And if you like, please view John Cassavettes "A Woman Under the Influence "
