Editorial Reviews

Jeff, (Matthew Modine) a businessman and artist, watches as his life begins to unravel after learning his ex-wife is going to marry his best friend. To add to his distress, Christine (Michele Laroque), a feisty real estate developer who lives in the apartment above him, is bound and determined to acquire his apartment. Their unfriendly housing situation results in comedic screaming matches, small fires and lots of slamming doors. But fate has a plan for these two. Attempting to gain entry into his wife s wedding, Jeff agrees to move out on one condition: if Christine agrees to attend his ex-wife s wedding as his date. Happy to get rid of her long-time nemesis, she agrees to attend. But after a slow dance and a kiss at the wedding, Christine begins to rethink her renovation plans and Matthew realizes that Christine might just be the person with whom he can rebuild his life with.

Customer Reviews

Matthew Modine is really good in this one.
Movie Man
It's rare that I won't give a movie at least an hour to see if it's any good, but after about 20 minutes, this one was just too awful to continue.
D. S.
This could be categorized as cute romantic movie.

The Neighbor (2007) with michelle laroque and matthew modine is a refreshing quirky romantic comedy with a beautiful mature french leading lady - and she has character lines on her face and is real - none of this hollywood plastic airbrushed perfection. It's so nice to find a movie to watch without the top 5 hollywood stars in. Let's see some fresh foreign faces for a change that give an alternative view on life, love and eternity.

Ok, so not all romantic-comedies have to star the young, sexy stars. How about some middle aged types? Or older like Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. This one exudes plenty of quirkiness, some slapstick, and the typical love-hate relationship.

Matthew Modine plays a bohemian, artist-architect(he's actually a painter in real life), divorcee-dad, who just can't get over his ex. A floor below him, lives a driven, french woman, business developer who wants him out so she can live in peace and add on to her place.

He's a bit of a dork, unruly, irresponsible but passionate on principles. She and her equally uptight fiance are major up and comers, organized and planned for every step of the future. It becomes a battle of noncongruences between the neighbors in the worse and funniest ways. That is until they realize how truly unhappy they both are in their separate, weird worlds.

I like the actors- both in their late 40's; her fiance talks about having kids- better hurry up! If you like younger stars in RC's, seek another flick. The story's fun, the ending satisfying. I can live with middle age romances because, well, that's me! Minimum language, no sex, no nudity, but intended for adults.

This was such a great movie! I really wasn't expecting much - it was a friend's choice. But the film has a really great feel to it. Its got a very satisfying quality to it. Matthew Modine is really good in this one. I don't want to spoil the movie, but there are also some really funny moments. I would watch this film again and again.

The hero, Jeff, an architect played by Matthew Modine, is a character that charms, disgusts, frustrates but then finally wins his volatile way into the viewer’s heart. The journey has unexpected moments as well as being occasionally predictable but is overall enjoyable and has a satisfactory ending.

The unexpected moments are sometimes really funny; especially the dance sequence by Christine, the bossy, controlling woman, played by Michèle Laroque, who wants Jeff out of his apartment.

The movie gets off to a rather slow start, but picks up the pace and eventually turns into a movie worth watching, at least once.

I enjoyed the play between the characters. It was great to watch them so angry and iritated with each other then the gradual softening between the two.

Matthew Modine's character has a daughter and she's great!

Enjoyed the movie.

I saw Modine in WIND and wanted to see more of his work. I was pleased with this one. I loved WIND. I think you will watch this a couple of times if it remains in your video library.

I was looking for a movie to watch that was enjoyable and found this. I like movies of Matthew Modine. He is a combination of funny, impressive actor. This could be categorized as cute romantic movie. You can watch it with all your family members.
