Product Description

Firefighter Patrick Sullivan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) finds his life turned upside-down when his fiancée suddenly calls off their pending nuptials per the recommendation of radio love guru Dr. Emma Lloyd (Uma Thurman). Determined to get back at this "love doctor," Sullivan forges a fake marriage license, "accidentally" marrying him to Emma,who's already engaged to Richard (Colin Firth). But as Patrick's charms begin to wear Emma down, she must decide which of these bachelors is her "Mr. Right." Also starring Sam Shepard, Justina Machado and Isabella Rossellini in this romantic comedy that proves even the experts need to learn a few love lessons now and then.

Doctor, heal thyself! That's the wry message underscoring the charming romantic comedy The Accidental Husband, which features Uma Thurman as Emma, a radio "love doctor" who can't quite seem to manage her own love life off the air. The cast is splendid, led by Thurman, who has rarely gotten to show her comic chops, and who really is very funny and has a gift for physical comedy as well. The two bachelors whose lives are accidentally (on purpose?) entangled with hers are played by two dreamboats, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (rugged firefighter Patrick) and Colin Firth (her fiancé, Richard). The chemistry between Emma and both suitors is crackling and captured well on film by director Griffin Dunne. Thurman, Morgan, and Firth are joined by a supporting cast every bit as spot-on as they are: Sam Shepard, Brooke Adams, Isabella Rossellini, Sarita Choudhury, and Keir Dullea, each of whom brings his or her own quirks and charms. The Accidental Husband is very much in the mode of Four Weddings and a Funeral and the Bridget Jones films--which is to say, make a date with it for your next date night. --A.T. Hurley

I really liked this movie, and I'm a guy. Sure it was improbable but then romantic comedies always are. Great performances all around from a very fine cast. Just one thing had me pulling my hair (again): that scene of the sprinklers in the churchl I wish I had a dollar for every time I have seen a movie scene where someone sets off a single sprinkler head and ALL the heads open up and drench everyone. Folks, sprinklers don't work that way, at least not ordinary sprinklers. Only the sprinkler head that gets the heat opens up; if they all opened most systems would fail due to insufficient water pressure. Okay, enough Fire Protection 101. After all it is a comedy and it makes the plot work. So despite that flaw, which has been repeated a hundred times in film, I loved the movie. We need more romantic movies like this, with beautiful actors and emotional connections, and fewer adolescent comedies with geek-ugly male leads, loads of bathroom jokes and scatological humor. I swear sometimes it seems Hollywood has been taken over by a gang of 13 year old boys.

Yes, it's fluff but, to the tell you the truth, I couldn't stop watching it. At first, the premise seems ludicrous - why would anyone engaged to Colin Firth be happy to be married to someone else? As the circumstances of the movie unfold and one realizes that Firth is more the "safe bet" Mr. Darcy character he is so famous for playing, whereas the other man is the epiphany of freedom, adventure, and excitement, the answer becomes quite obvious. At the theaters, this movie will be best enjoyed as part of the date movie ritual; as a rental, this movie will do marvelously.

I love this movie because it went to an impossible place and still all the actors sold it. It was smart and thoughtful. No actor over did it with over the top hating and crying. Sometime silly but never eye rolling. Light and Fun.

Charming, entertaining and fun! Uma Thurman shines in her first major romantic comedy "The Accidental Husband". A refreshing take on love triangle storyline with the inclusion of South Asian pop culture mixed in. Also, featuring a solid performance from Colin Firth and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. If you enjoy romantic comedies, give this film a chance!

"The Accidental Husband", the romantic comedy directed by actor Griffin Dunne ("Frasier", "After Hours", "Duke of Groove") and features a screenplay by Mimi Hare, Clare Naylor and Bonnie Sikowitz ("Spin City, "Scrubs"), music by composer Andrea Gurrera ("Dada's Dance", "Birdwatchers", "A Perfect Day") and cinematographer William Rexer ("The Devil Came On Horseback", "I Think I Love My Wife", "Fierce People").

The film that had so much potential but unfortunately, similar to the film "The Maiden Heist", was shelved indefinitely after the bankruptcy of the distributor Yari Film Group before it was set to premiere in the United States. The film did manage to get a theatrical debut in the UK.

The film would be the first to showcase Uma Thurman ("Kill Bill", "The Avengers", "My Super Ex-Girlfriend") in her first romantic comedy and star along with Colin Firth ("Easy Virtue", "Pride and Prejudice", "Bridget Jones"), Jeffrey Dean Morgan ("Grey's Anatomy", "Supernatural"), Sam Shepard ("The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford", "Stealth", "Swordfish") and Isabella Rossellini ("Napoleon", "Infamous", "Alias").

The film revolves around Dr. Emma Lloyd (played by Uma Thurman). A well-known radio talk show host in New York City who talks about love and relationships in her program. She's dating Richard Bratton (played by Colin Firth) who is a publisher and the two are planning to get married.

The beginning was a little hard to get through but I'm glad I stuck it out. It's a total chick flick full of mix-matched romance and comedic confusions. However, while it followed the same "mold" we've all seen time and again, there were some different elements to this film that made it a pleasure to watch. It may not be really realistic, but it's a great film to watch with your girlfriends or with a big bowl of ice cream by your side!

I only write about this film cause it's a good example of how formulas can kill a story. There is nothing true in this film. You take a recipe on how to write a romantic comedy and you follow it blindly and coldly. Without heart and without emotion. Everything seems rushed. The characters are doing and saying what they are doing and saying because the screenplay (the recipe) says so. The writers have established the scheme of things, how to go from point A to point B and the characters cannot get out of that scheme. They're stuck in the story line which could have easily been written by a novice writer... in his sleep. Not only is everything predictable (the hero is a firefighter... guess how it's going to end.... With a fire, of course) but it's also boring. The formula is visible a mile away and it makes it impossible to believe any of the characters in their intentions.

You can even guess what they were going for with the Indian family living in the same building the hero lives. The idea, far from being of cultural interest, was only to make Uma Thurman's character fall in love with Jeffrey Dean Morgan's character by creating an atmosphere of community where emotions run true, thus establishing a contrast with the cold and more sophisticated environment of Collin Firth's character. Nothing true. Just formula. Why does the Collin Firth's character wait at the last moment, at the altar, to do one of the movie's big moves? Because the script finds it more dramatic, of course. Why do the two protagonists talk about the hero's last bride... right in front of that last bride's workplace? Because the script finds it more dramatic, of course. You can see her as you speak of her.
