Editorial Reviews

This fun, critically acclaimed comedy follows the hilarious antics of four friends looking for love in the '90s! Laura, Frank, Andrew, and Amelia always have something to laugh about when it comes to matters of the heart. There are good dates, bad dates, and no dates. Wild fantasies. Long-distance phone sex. And an outrageous search for Mr. Right that turns up every oddball imaginable! In the hilarious tradition of BEAUTIFUL GIRLS and FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, WALKING AND TALKING shows that the ups and downs of modern romance aren't easy ... they've just never been funnier!

This is the film that introduced me to the wonderment of Catherine Keener, Liv Schreiber and Anne Heche. Plus it has the ultra cool, funny Kevin Corrigan. A film about 20's somethings and their relationships and what happens when you feel you are losing your best friend to an impending wedding. Catherine Keener plays a neurotic woman who has no idea what she wants out of a relationship, so she relies heavily on her best friend (Heche) and her ex-boyfriend and male best friend (Schreiber). They are there to comfort her and are outlets to express her doubts on love and life. But one of her outlets is about to get married and she has a hard time adjusting to that fact. It's a good story about life in your 20's. There is a wonderful appearance by Kevin Corrigan who just steals most of the scenes he is in. It's not over the top acting (as you get in your better known dramas) and its not just caricatures... It's just a little low-budget film with some really good acting. The right amount of acting that is required for a film of this quality. And I found it rather enjoyable.

As you may have watched in the recent "Lovely and Amazing" movie by the same director, she chooses to focus on the truth in relationships, instead of presenting what's fake and flowery. Amelia is best friends with Laura. They grew up together, lived together, and shared a cat together. Now, Laura is getting married to her live-in boyfriend, and Amelia takes it hard. She is trying to put a handle on this, and at the same time, be single in New York. It seems that she has no other friends really, except for Andrew, a recent Amelia stalker victim, who she once dated. In fact, everyone she dates, she ends up obsessing about for a little while.
This movie is not too well known or accessible, but I have always liked it for the fact that Amelia, played by Catherine Keener, is so real, with her tangly brown hair, and hilarious facial expressions. Although I haven't really been a fan of Anne Heche, she nails the part. She is interesting to watch with her cynical personality, who can be kind of abrasive, though sometimes sweet. She is trying to accept getting married, and wondering whether she wants to be there.
Walking and Talking is fun, depicting a couple at night, stating, "You want to play around?" then grabbing a Boggle game from under the bed. Liev Schreiber, who has boyish charm and a machine-gun laugh, plays Andrew. He has a need for "adult videos" and stimulating phone conversations with women, he hardly knows. In addition, Todd Field, before directing, "In the Bedroom," always has that sweet, calm demeanor. The characters are hard to forget. Although the story is very simple, it still holds true with healthy and dysfunctional relationships. Anyone who wants to understand women and how they deal with each other should watch it!

I've seen this film several times and it's a great chick flick, if that's what you're after. A good sit-alone-at-home or with another girlfriend film. While it's not earthshatteringly profound, it is touching and quite funny. As a single 30-something who's seen numerous close friends get engaged and married, I can relate to Keener's character. Your relationships with your girlfriends change as you or they embark on committed relationships and this film's about finding yourself and letting go of expectations. See. .. I told you it's a chick flick. But it's great.

In the movie "When Harry Met Sally" there is a scene where two of the characters argue about whether or not people give up their single friends, when they get married. The film "Walking and Talking" uses this as it's theme in a comedic examination of two women's friendship. Ann Heche (in one of her earlier indie film roles)plays Laura, who gets engaged to her boyfriend, Frank. This deeply affects her close girlfriend, Amelia, wonderfully played by Catherine Keener. Amelia's life is a mess between her cat who has contracted cancer and her long history of bad relationship's (past, present and probably future) with men. Keener really does a superb job presenting us with a women, who is lonely and upset, because she feels she is loosing her best friend to marriage. Anne Heche, also is very good at showing us the flip side of the coin, because her character feels guilty about neglecting her fiend for her fiance'. The film's excellent supporting cast includes Liev Schreiber as Amelia's mooching, ex boyfriend and Todd Field as the nice guy Fiance'. One special mention should be made for character actor, Kevin Corrigan, who plays one of Amelia's geeky dates.He takes a small role that could have been trite and one dimensional and instead he gives his character real feelings and empathy. His chemistry with actress, Catherine Keener is wonderful. He practically steals all the scenes he is in. The film also has a very enjoyable soundtrack, which includes some excellent tunes from singer, Billy Bragg and the Australian, New Wave/pop group, Frente. This is a warm movie about the meaning of friendship, that provides some good laughs and entertainment.

This is a wonderful movie. It's smart, funny and real. I still laugh out loud, and usually cry too, even though I've probably seen it a dozen times.
