Julia Roberts, Dennis Quaid. Her husband has a cheating heart, but that doesn't stop a sassy Southern woman from keeping one step ahead of the town gossips and trying to salvage her marriage. 1995/color/106 min/R/widescreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars I ADORE this movie October 11, 2002
There isn't anything in this that was earth shattering or incredible performances. It was just a good Sunday Afternoon flick, I own this one and forgot how much I enjoyed it until my Daughter and I pulled it off the shelf.
Julia Roberts does a believable job as a woman who has found out that her husband has screwed around on her. What I liked most about this movie was allll of the secondary characters... Kyra was the PERFECT Older sister looking out for her younger one, Gena was Great as the Southern Belle Mama, the Aunt (don't know this woman's name)was HILARIOUS as the "little" crazy Aunt that would/could go there. You really have to pay attention to this movie there are so many innuendos and funny moments that I truly can recommend this one. The actress that played the daughter was wonderful and last but not least Dennis Quaid did quite a convincing job as a contrite husband (once he was caught).
If you want something along this plot line I would also suggest "Hope Floats" which also stars Gena Rowlands and has pretty much the same subject matter but not the same movie. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the 10-12 I watch repeatedly. . . January 28, 2004
As a 30-something chick, I have a few romantic comedies and dramas that I have watched so many times I can repeat them line for line. I put them on, if for nothing else, for the background noise. This movie is one of them. The title of the movie says it all; Julia Roberts (Grace) gives the entire town something to talk about when she finds out about her husband's cheating ways. The movie is funny and poignant at the same time, making the viewer re-visit some decisions they made in their lives that got them where they are today. Kyra Sedgwick is absolutely fabulous (much better than in "Singles") and Gena Rowlands is wonderful, as well. Pair that with a great subplot about horse competitions and coming to grip with aging, you've got a great movie that was completely underrated by most critics.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable and entertaining film June 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Curl up and enjoy this movie. It is funny, sad, interesting and most of all enjoyable. I disagree with the person who said that the husband and wife spontaneously dance and then live happily ever after. Did we watch the same movie? The wife (Julia Roberts) then goes back to school and her husband begins courting her. Dating, not back to move in and live happily ever after.

3.0 out of 5 stars Familiar but pleasing nonetheless June 18, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Director Lasse Hallstrom attempts to combine two venerable Hollywood genres and several subplots in this nonetheless agreeable morality tale about the bad effect adultery can have on your marriage. Part women's POV romantic comedy and part Dixie family dynamics saga, this is a generational story about what it takes to make a marriage work. It's a little scattered and loose fitting and underdeveloped in parts, but there's enough warmth and bright comedy to make up for the defects, and the cast is fun to watch.

The script by Callie Khouri is familiar but clever with some good human observations and some nice twists. I notice that Khouri also wrote Thelma and Louise (1991), which may explain why, in this flick, it is the men who learn (and need) most of the hard lessons. Robert Duvall plays the still feisty patriarch, Wlyly King, who really needs to learn to loosen the reigns a little, while Dennis Quaid, who plays Grace's adulterous husband, needs to appreciate what he's got and to stop catting around. Kyra Sedgwick as Grace's sister helps him by kneeing him right where it hurts the most, and Grace, accidentally on purpose, nearly poisons him. (All part of his well-deserved and to be continued penance.) Sedgwick sparkles while being careful not to upstage "America's Darling" too often while Gena Rowlands as the mother is steady and sure.

Julia Roberts has become a great star and a great actress, and she is one of my favorites, but there is no question that she felt not entirely comfortable in this part. From the details of the script you can see that she is supposed to be a somewhat ditzy and naively outspoken woman, a southern belle with spunk, a mind of her own, and a desire to be something more than her father's daughter or her husband's wife.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice comedy, worth watching. March 1, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Something to Talk About is the sort of movie that is saved by the cast. If it had not been for the work of people like Roberts, Duvall, Quaid, Sedgwick and others, this movie would hardly have been worth watching. Especially Kyra Sedgwick did a wonderfull job, but than she had all the good lines. Good work with the horses too and Dennis Quaid shows a surprising talent in handling children. The story itself is not very special, but the actors make the best of it, producing a pleasant comedy with rather more points of interest than is usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fall Movie July 25, 2006
I love Julia Roberts and Gena Rowlands. Kyra Sedgewick is in this one as well. The film is awesome. It has an awesome plot and the setting is beautiful. The horses provide a good sub-plot to the main marital-problem part of the movie. Kyra plays my favorite character, Grace's fiesty sister. Her quips are fantastic and Julia Roberts and Quaid totally make their roles beleivable. It's a cute, funny, drama--who knew they still existed? Love IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something to Talk About June 30, 2007
This movie is one of the best movies ever made. It covers the dynamics of relationships in a way that allows the viewer to recognize them in thier own lives or of people that they know. Julie Roberts, Dennis Quaid, Kyra Sedgwick, Robert Duvall and Gena Rowlands are all at their best. THis is a movie that I enjoy every time I watch it and that is often.
