Editorial Reviews

Robert Downey Jr. is Blake Allen, an arrogant self-absorbed actor who gets a double dose of girl trouble in this wildly provocative "look at love, lust and sexual commitment in the `90's." (Los Angeles Times). They're as different as they are beautiful, but Carla (Heather Graham) and Lou (Natasha Gregson Wagner) have more in common than meets the eye. Each thinks she has the world's greatest boyfriend - until both realize they're talking about the same guy! Sparks fly when the two girls discover Blake's deception and team up to confront their lying, two-timing lover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confused? June 13, 2002
Format:DVD
In case you got confused by all the controversial reviews...and can't decide to spend 84 minutes of your time on this film, here are some suggestions. DON'T WATCH IT IF: 1. you tend to pick movies with stylish cinematography that enhances dramatic or spectacular scenes; 2. you prefer movies with twists and turns woven into an elaborate screenplay; 3. you expect some sizzling scenes from the title or the NR-17 rating; 4. you are currently savoring your first love or consider yourself a hopelessly romantic person. But DON'T MISS IT IF: 1. you really enjoy dark comedy whether it's an indie or some Hollywood rare bird; 2. you love witty, sassy, sarcastic dialogue, and don't have a problem with profanities; 3. you readily accept any ludicrous circumstance as a natural facet of life; 4. you realize that it's common for couples to talk only on the surface about issues they're afraid to cope with, until a certain point where they must spill the beans to save the relationship or get it over with... Well, did I miss something? Oh yeah, 3 of my 4 stars go to Robert Downey Jr., simply because I believe any other actresses can carry the roles of Heather Graham and Natasha G. Wagner but nobody can do RDJr 's. He's really one of a kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars honest and compelling June 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Robert Downey, Jr. displays once again, his tremendous talent and his ability to take the audience along on an emotional journey. The dialogue was honest and true to life, and Mr. Downey dominated each scene he was in, as he normally does. He not only displays his acting talent here, but the scene in which he stares in the mirror and takes a good look at himself is one of the most riveting I have ever seen. Any fan of Downey's, James Toback, or of honest films about relationships will love this one! The claustrophobic sets add to the suspense and edge of your seat quality of the film.The humor is edgy and nervous, like the characters themselves.On the whole, an intelligent, worthwhile film!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time Favorites September 17, 2005
Format:DVD
Wow, I just looked up this film on a lark as I'd seen it a number of years ago... given the mixed/neg reviews, I figured I should put in a couple cents here, give this film its due 5 stars.

It would be a terrific exercise/experiment/experience to know enough of each person to contextualize why they did or did not like this film. I actually typically find I like films that sprawl across cities and countries, epic of backdrop. But what was so fantastic about this film is that it was epic of performance, of communication, of a different landscape of love than one normally encounters in films.

I suppose, cinematographically (sp), it unfolds like a expanded play or a focused Mamet film. I remember exclaiming, during a particularly heated argument-communication, "that's how it IS!" -- there were just so many incredibly authentic relationship-communication details in a movie largely about deceits (self and other) and truths.

I believe I saw the film "Jules et Jim" after this (although it is much older) but was terrifically excited to see the fim poster for "Jules et Jim" hanging on a wall in Downey's apt. Ok, point. The POINT is that this film is ultimately an exploration of the complexities and vagaries of love and sexuality. Not that this film was a successful (or intentional) treatment of polyamory of open/liberated love, it did touch upon this possibility in a way I appreciated.

Ok, ok, so I haven't seen it in awhile but, at the time, I saw it probably 4 or 5 times. If you're really interested in relationship dynamics; if you're interested in seeing communication and conversations that have an air of reality and authenticity (better than reality shows, imho, because there is still an intentionality to the direction...

4.0 out of 5 stars Robert Downey's best performance! November 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Excellent movie, but this is not the typical Hollywood movie. No action. I can tell you a lot of good things about this movie, but the best thing is that you can see and confirm that Robert Downey Jr. is a fantastic actor. The variety of scenes where he laughs, cries, sings, argues, even performs a Shekespeare's act --they are all excellent. Really funny movie with great acting from Downing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes you have to look deeper November 5, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
First of all I'm surprised this went to Blu. I remember seeing this in the theater when it first came out and instantly liked it. Going in though, you have to be aware that this is a 100% dialogue driven film. There's no action really, there's only three actors in the movie (well five, if you count the two in the very beginning for about two minutes). If you go into this expecting anything but essentially a theatrical play, then you may be disappointed.

Personally I think this is one of Robert Downey Jr's best roles to date, along with Less than Zero. I think roles like this, in which he shines so well as the perennial f*** up, doomed by his own inabilities to accept the fact that there are people who will not just abandon him at the slightest whim, hits too close to home for many people. They can't separate the fact that he's acting, from his real life struggles with drug addiction and other things.

And as such, when he puts on a great performance, people toss it aside and say "it's just him playing himself". Which is a great disservice, I think.

Heather Graham is very good in this, as is Natasha Gregson-Wagner (daughter of Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood), although Wagner can be EXTREMELY grating after awhile. She comes off as simultaneously cute & sexy, and irritating. Eventually you're waiting for someone to just yell at her to shut up.

But all three actors do a very good job with this, and from what I've read there was virtually no script. It was all improv, and I think that speaks volumes to how good these actors are.

I've read reviews of this which say that it's a movie where people just talk about nothing. And that's not true at all. It couldn't be farther from the truth.
