Customer Reviews

Great movie with a very talented cast.
Kenglish76
If I had one complaint it would be that at times the movie slows down in spots that it doesn't need to.
J. Rexroat
This is one of those movies that I can watch once a year and never grow tired of it.

As one who is usually unable to watch romantic comedies because of the prevalence of slapstick, bad dialogue, absence of character development, overused mistaken identities, and inane story lines, I laughed my ass off at the two adult Irish-American brothers, their dad, and the women in their lives. The dialogue is at times witty, ribald, and/or sarcastic; the character development is superb; the humor is understated.

Edward Burns, who wrote and directed the movie, plays the role of the most likable world-wise brother, Mickey. Mike McGlone plays his brother, Francis.

John Mahoney plays the narrow-minded, family-dominating father, who has only a superficial understanding of the other family members. Typical of the father's unsolicited advice to his two grown sons is that whether or not one believes in God, he should respect the Church and be a good Catholic.

The two female leads are Cameron Diaz playing Heather, and Jennifer Aniston playing Reneé. The excellent acting gives credibility to all of the characters.

Viewers who are expecting torrid love scenes, pie-in-the-face humor, or gratuitous violence will be disappointed. On the other hand, those who can appreciate being given a glimpse into a mirror that reflects our foibles and unrealistic expectations, will see the movie as a gem.

Francis (Mike McGlone) and Mickey (Edward Burns) are brothers with different views on life and happiness. These views have been heavily influenced by their father (John Mahoney) through the years, with his, "you come first" attitude.
Mr. Fitzpatrick lives near the ocean and owns a boat, wherein the father and brothers visit and go fishing often.
Mickey is an down to earth and likable guy without much ambition who drives a cab. Brother Francis is not so likable. He is a successful stockbroker whose standing joke is that his brother is the only English speaking cab driver in New York.
Francis is pretentious and conniving, the opposite of Mickey, who is easy going and modest. That they were raised by the same parents seems to be a fluke.
Francis also is a cheating husband. He is married to and bored with Renee (Jennifer Aniston), who cannot figure out why Francis never wants to have sex anymore. Francis, nice guy that he is does not want to cheat on his mistress with his wife.
However, the same can't be said for his mistress, Heather (Cameron Diaz) who doesn't even try to hide the fact from Francis that she is sleeping around. The naughty Heather, for the record, was once engaged to Mickey, until he caught her naked asleep with another man in their apartment.
Meanwhile our happy go lucky cab driver, Mickey, surprises everyone when he marries one of his fares, a mere twentyfour hours after meeting her. Her name is Hope (Maxine Bahns) and Mickey and Hope have every intention of making their marriage work, despite what everyone, especially Francis thinks.
And so the stage is set for some clever if not hilarious situations.
This is a comedy, not a rip snortin funny movie but it does have it's clever humorous moments and it's sort of like a fable too, with a lesson to be learned for those paying attention.

This is a funny, captivating, and worthwhile film. Although it isn't a blockbuster, it certainly has more substance than a lot of films today.Ed Burns is endearing and charming as a cabbie who bases most of his decision on emotions, rather than sense, and yet he comes out winnng in the end. Cameron Diaz is delightfully evil as his ex-fiancee, certainly a much different role than the loveable girl next door roles she played in "My Best Friends Wedding" and "There's Something About Mary" Although she has only a small role Jennifer Anniston is also great as Renee, a wife who looks for a reason as to why her husband is no longer interested in her. The film has many dynamics that I feel are explord quite nicely, mainly family, sibling rivalry, and love in the real world. This film is a definite find!

The script is sometimes funny because of the conflict between two brothers from different worlds. They are "in love" with the wrong woman most of the time. Cameron Diaz is beautiful but sometimes you feel that she flashes that smile to cover her lack of acting skills. Jennifer Aniston is just the opposite: she is pretty but she concentrates her energy on her acting. The picture has more drama than some seem to pick up on. This is not just a funny film. It says alot about our family and social values today. Burns does a good job on this and his acting and Aniston's make it worthwhile to see.

This movie, like it's predecessor, is about real life, real people, and the twists and turns life plays on all of us. Its funny, thought provoking, and shows how a family really works, with all the pimples and grime. This is the second movie in the series (with the Bro. McMullen being the first) and I found this to be just as entertaining and a nice segue from the previous movie. In fact, 'She's the One' seems slightly more upbeat, more colorful, and in a way, jumps out at you more than 'The Bros.' did. Fantastic acting too. The ladies were good, but the main characters, Ed Burns and Mike McGlone were multi-dimentional, yet subtle at the same time. The father was perfect for the role. If you like real stories and like to have a grin on your face every 10 minutes, you will enjoy this film. If you are looking for an action film with special effects and bombs, flying debree, etc. this will not float your boat.
