Charlize Theron brings on her charm, and Keanu Reeves turns in a surprisingly worthy performance in "Sweet November," a movie that's as light as a fall breeze. Slammed by most critics as a soggy romance with no star chemistry, the movie's premise centers around two people who, through an unlikely series of events, fall in love, though not without hardship.
Let it be known, the movie is not that bad. In fact, when put in comparison with movies like "Bounce" and "The Wedding Planner," "Sweet November" is actually kind of refreshing in it's own little way. Yes, the way in which the two develop their romance is a bit tough to swallow at first, but if you can ignore that and allow their growing relationship to touch your heart, then the movie succeeds on those terms.
Keanu Reeves plays Nelson Moss, a man who is all work and no play (when leaving for work one morning, he tells his girlfriend, "I have a life, and I'm late for it") as a big ad executive. While taking a test at the DMV, he runs into Sara Deever, played by Charlize Theron, who gives him an answer and gets caught cheating. What does Sara do? She milks the situation for everything she can in order to get Nelson to her home.
Her offer? To allow him to live in her house for a month, no more, no less, in order to help him get rid of all of his life's stresses and restrictions. She takes it to the extreme, too, giving his clothes to a homeless man, telling him he cannot go to work (he got fired, anyway), and taking him out into the town to show him the ways in which life can be fun.
Like any movie relationship, there are complications. Sara is reluctant to reveal anything about her past or her family, or her reasons for taking in a new man each month.

One of the prior reviews stated that the ending was obvious in the first ten minutes; must have written the script.

There are very few romantic drama/comedies where the two characters part in anything like this way, nor does the illness of the Theron character get revealed until the middle of the film. Certainly, the approach of the Theron character to her life is very unusual.

Several of the reviewers noted that SF is beautifully photographed, almost perfectly photographed, to match the moods of the film. I agree.

I've watched it about four times, and probably will watch it several more times. The film's mix just works!

Sweet November has been the best romantic movie I have seen yet. Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves play the perfect roles and can make your heart melt. This movie is worth it. I have watched this movie so many times and it still leaves me crying. If you love romantic movies this movie is perfect for you. The chemistry in this movie is amazing. Watch this movie believe me you'll love it.

I'm a guy, and don't generally appreciate "Chick Flicks," but this one started out all right. My wife wanted to see this movie, and I'll admit- I like Theron and Reeve's chemistry in Devil's Advocate, although their relationship in that movie ended even worse then theirs in this picture. I went to see the movie, and it had an enjoyable enough beginning as the cliche's of the movie were Hammered into the audience.
Reeve's character is a stiff suit, obsessed with himself, his talent and his career- he Lives for his job, and is not a healthy person. He is wholly self- absorbed, and has no real love for anyone but himself; his success at work is driven by his desire to satisfy his ego. He is obsessed with satisfying himself, by distancing himself as far as possible from his humble beginnings.
Theron's character is a flighty lovable leftist- PeTA type who liberates huggable puppies from evil experimental labs and gives them happy homes... . They are "better off" for having met her. Basically, she's a ...who shacks up with a guy to show him how twisted his life is without having Heavy amounts of leftist vitality. Granted, the character is a LOT more likeable than that of Any of Reeve's characters business partners, and her quirks are all lovable- but the viewer must realize that her intentions are flawed; she doesn't make any room for real love...
After the characters are detailed, and after they fall in love, the message of the movie self- destructs.
Reeve's finds out Theron is dying. Theron displays incredible selfishness by distancing herself from Reeves. She shuts him out, because she doesn't want him to see her as weak, basically rejecting Reeves love. Reeves goes to great lengths to see Theron, and eventually succeeds, forcing her to talk to him (Stalker!).

This is a romantic and funny movie about loving life. If you like movies like Sleepless In Seattle, One Fine Day, or Forces of Nature you will probably enjoy this one. I thought the house she lives in was coolThis movie is not your ordinary love story cause it shows you to love life.

I really liked this movie. The more you see it, the more it grows on you. I was surprised that it didn't make me cry the first time I saw it but it does whenever I watch it now because I already know ahead of time what is going to happen and I understand the choices that Sara makes. I especially liked the 12 days of Christmas. Nelson went from a totally emotionally unattached (the guy was through having sex with his girlfriend as soon as the alarm clock went off!), unfeeling workaholic to remembering the item "that started it all." I believe Sara pulled it off rehabilitating him back to Earth. Every time I watch this movie, I see something that comes together that I didn't catch before. Charlize Theron does a wonderful job as Sara. ...
The movie gave me mixed emotions. I like the ending. Anyone who has ever had to watch a loved one die would understand Sara's decisions.
