5.0 out of 5 stars Very Entertaining And Very Smart June 21, 2002
"Two Ninas" is funny, very real, and has an ambience that is quite addictive. The film had me hooked after viewing it only once!
On one level, this is a light-weight movie with low profile actors and an unknown director. Even the plot of this romantic comedy is unoriginal.
But "Two Ninas" is youthful and charming. The performances of the entire cast is surprisingly excellent. I loved the intelligent mood and the 'feel' of film with New York as the backdrop. I found myself thinking about the characters long after I first viewed it. I was so infatuated with the Nina characters of Amanda Peet and Cara Buono that I went out and bought the DVD.
Ron Livingston plays Marty Sachs with a perfect balance of sensitivity and 'nurdyness' that rings true. Marty's life in New York is not going too well. His sex life has been dry for at least a year; he hates his job working on box scores for a New York newspaper; and he can't find an agent to sell his novel. Just as Marty considers moving back to Maine to work in his family's business, he meets two beautiful woman named Nina.
Marty's hyper active romantic life is a double-edged sword. Although he's enjoying it, sometimes the complications are too much and he f**ks up royally. Marty's experiences are narrated by his best freind, Dave Trout, nicely portrayed by Bray Poor.
I thought that Ron Livingston had more chemestry going with Amanda Peet as Nina Haris, but she was not the character he finally falls in love with. Cara Buono as Nina Cohen had some nice moments, particularly at the break-up scene at the Rodeo Bar and at the make-up scene at the end of the movie. But it was Amanda Peet that stole my heart.
All in all, a very fine film that I recommend highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful And Fun Movie May 29, 2002
I really liked this funny and intelligent movie very very much, even though the plot is rather unoriginal and could be seen on many a TV sitcom. However, the cast of the "Two Ninas" is outstanding and they manage to pull it off VERY successfully. The acting is right on; the dialogue is crisp; and the characters come through smartly. Ron Livingston portrays Marty Sachs, a slightly-nurdy, struggling writer who hates his job, hasn't gotten laid in 17 months, and is considering leaving New York for Maine to work in his family business. Suddenly, he gets involved with two beautiful women named Nina. They both fall in love with him and want a commitment. After juggling the relation with both women, Marty discovers he really loves only one, Nina Cohen. Unfortunately, both relationships end badly. I will end this review here, except to say that I liked this movie a lot. In a nutshell, it's the exceptionally fine cast that pulls this movie off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed July 31, 2013
By Eveto
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I am all about chick flicks but this was just too predictable and a little boring. It kept me entertained but I wouldn't watch it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie, WATCH IT!!! March 1, 2002
This is a movie about Marty, a writer that haven't had a relationship in a long time and no luck with his book so is thinking to moving back with his parents, but then he meets Nina and thinks that things are starting to change, but she wants to go slow, so a few days later she meets Nina, this is a whole different woman, this one is the opposite of the first one, so he stars a relationship with both of them. Here begins the story which takes a few turns until Marty finds his true love and makes things right. Good acting and a pretty amusing story, that will make you laugh and think about life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars For Two Ninas July 22, 2006
This is an absolute gem of a film which is loses nothing on repeated viewings. A fine cast who are attractive without being Hollywood glamour types give uniformly well-rounded performances, with Bray Poor the obvious standout. The dialogue is clever yet believable - articulate and earthy. The two Ninas are both gorgeous in their own individual ways (as is the bartender). The plot is nicely paced with no real surprises which allows the audience to concentrate on the characters. The only false note is the character of the literary agent who could have easily been dispensed with. But that's a minor quibble. Everything else about the film is marvellous - a small movie with a great big heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DATE MOVIE June 27, 2001
By A Customer
This is one of the greatest date movies ever made!! It's a hilarious look at dating in NYC. A romantic comedy about love and friendship that should not be overlooked! The cast is tremendous (AMANDA PEET, RON LIVINGSTON, CARA BUONO, LINDA LARKIN, BRAY POOR) and the dialogue is witty and real.
Buy this DVD now!! You will love it!!

Entertaining but not earth shaking. The photography and acting are first rate, and the story line is well within the realm of believable. Try it you'll like it.

Thought the chemistry between the characters was outstanding. The film captures that, and while the story line is now new, the actors realy perform above that standard.
