Editorial Reviews

Released two years later than originally scheduled, "Town & Country" was plagued by the kind of negative buzz that few movies recover from. Like the infamous "Ishtar", this Warren Beatty-led ensemble comedy is ungainly and erratic, but when it's funny it's quite funny, and the involvement of cowriter Buck Henry makes it a lot smarter than most of what passes for wit in postmillennial comedy. An updated sex farce fueled by modern-day foibles, the movie's also an apologetic valentine from notorious womanizers like Beatty, who, as wealthy Manhattan architect Porter Stoddard, is paying the price for his dalliance with a sexy cellist (Nastassja Kinski). While Porter's wife (Diane Keaton) fumes with suspicion, their best friends Mona (Goldie Hawn) and Griffin (Garry Shandling) wage their own marital warfare after Mona spies Griffin with a gorgeous redhead. Mona shouldn't believe what she sees, but she still has cause to worry.\n Porter also has a fling with a ski-bunny psycho (Andie MacDowell) with an obsessively protective father (Charlton Heston), and a store clerk (Jenna Elfman) with a thing for Russian literature. It all leads to comedic acts of contrition, but too many gags are strained or flat; lacking knowledge of its troubled history, you'd still think "Town & Country" was a puzzle with missing pieces. And yet, these veteran stars somehow pull it together just enough to make it work, and with the stammering Shandling as a standout, the movie boasts a few noteworthy highlights. Heston's a riot (believe it or not), and although "Town & Country" doesn't fire on all pistons, it's got enough horsepower to suggest it could've been a contender. "--Jeff Shannon"

Customer Reviews

The actresses try to play the roles, some succeed due to their talent.
Jacob Whatley
If people are looking for a movie that's funny but not well made, it really wouldn't hurt to go see this movie, it's not a great comedy but it tries to be.
Alex Udvary
Everything about this movie was painfully bad, from the writing to the directing to the uninspired acting of a tremendously talented cast.

Unfortunately Town & Country was a total waste of time and good talent. Everything about this movie was painfully bad, from the writing to the directing to the uninspired acting of a tremendously talented cast. The movie just never took off and lacked any spark of intelligence or energy. Do not waste your time or money.

"Inconsistent" is the keyword of "Town and Country." I mean, the keyword of how to explain the failure of the film. Maybe I'm mistaken, but when I watched it in theater in Japan, the touch of photography slightly changes in the last 30 minutes. At first, the colors and the light of the film are soft, but near the ending they get suddenly sharper and things look more distinct. And maybe I'm mistaken again, but the opening credit has it "Joshua Hartnett" while in the ending credit "Josh Hartnett," the way he is usually known now.
What I want to say is, as you know, "Town and Country" has experienced several re-writes because of negative response from the viewers at the screen test. But to re-write or re-shoot a film is not unusual these days -- "Fatal Attration" is one good example -- but in this case, the bad reaction from the audience could have been predicted with ease. Check out the story. The hero, who suddenly turns a philanderer when his should be well mature, is played by none other than Warren Beatty (come on!); he has an affiar with a beautiful cellist (sexy Nastassja Kinski) and his friend's wife (ever gorgeous Goldie Hawn); and then, he goes on to have another one (apparently) with Andie MacDowell and Jenna Elfman. He regrets (why not?) and goes back to his wife Diane Keaton, and asks to be forgiven, and ... she forgives!! Okay, this is an ultimate fantasy for men, I understand, but no one, male or female, buys that idea. So, Buck Henry was called as script-doctor, but even his talent could do nothing. As a result, sometimes the film looks like a romance; sometimes a farce (and not a bad one when Gary Shandling is allowed to do his stuff): sometimes very serious and ... forget it. By now, you got my point. The film is always apologetic for what it is based on.

Do not waste your time. In spite of the cast, this movie is a whopping dud. Meandering and unfulfiling. A shame. I'd give it zero stars, but the system won't let me.

I doubt I will see a worse movie this year or next. After three years of rewrites, reshoots and re-edits, Warren Beatty's latest vehicle is released and falls mightily flat with a huge crash. All the post-production hoopla did nothing but destroy the film's chances of ever finding any artistic success or adding any glimmer to the careers of those involved. Beatty and Garry Shandling are idiot actors in idiotic roles as two men who can't stop cheating on their wives. Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton hardly fare any better as the women who are being betrayed by these philandering gits (this is a very far cry from The First Wives Club). All the other talented performers, from Jenna Elfman to Andie MacDowell to Joshua Hartnett, are wasted in thankless roles that for the most part don't even make any sense. The film's script has absolutely no humour beyond the odd moment, and most of its scenes end without ever having gone anywhere. Even Beatty can't avoid the fact that he is just too old to be in something so ridiculous; with no character strength written in, how are we supposed to believe that all these gorgeous women a third his age would fall for this twelve hundred year-old goofball? The enjoyment level here is equal to a non-novocaine-assisted drilling in a back-alley dentist's chair. Unbelievable that is written by the man who wrote To Die For and co-wrote Heaven Can Wait with Beatty.

Worst film with so many stars that I have seen for quite some time. So many scenes were so pitiful. Nothing funny about this movie. All of the characters were pathetic.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Michael Butts HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 4, 2006
Format: DVD
Filmed in 1998 and not released until 2001, TOWN AND COUNTRY has the dubious honor of being one of the most financially disastrous films of all time. What were these talented actors doing in a mess like this? It's thin plot focuses on marital infidelity and pompous overacting. Warren Beatty is basically playing his off-screen persona; Diane Keaton is playing the same roles she's been playing ever since Annie Hall; Garry Shandling is like a stand up comic with no funny lines; Goldie Hawn is the same Goldie from DEATH BECOMES HER; Andie McDowell and Nastassa Kinski are wasted in their superflous roles; and Charlton Heston is no Leslie Nielsen, and is about as funny as HOWARD THE DUCK.

Peter Chisom's direction is pedestrian and uninspired, and the whole thing just falls flat on its incompetent face. What a waste!

This was one of the worst movies my husband and I ever tried to watch. We finally gave up and I threw our DVD away. We were looking forward to watching it because of the cast, but that just proves that you need more than very good actores to make a good movie. Nothing seemed funny to us; I find it strange that it got better reviews than "My Fellow Americans" and "Her Alibi." We enjoyed the first one and thought the second one was cute, but they got trounced. Which might also prove that you have to be an outspoken liberal to get a good review in Hollywood?
