Product Description

A successful stockbroker loses his entire fortune on a bad stock and turns to his ex-girlfriend's failing advice column as his sole income source. After a few failed attempts, the insensitive man finds his sensitive side and becomes a moderate celebrity. The only problem is that his ex-girlfriend has returned and wants to reclaim what is rightfully hers.

Amazon.com

Fans of Denise Richards will delight in her skin-tight and belly-revealing outfits in Good Advice; fans of Charlie Sheen will enjoy his patented sleazeball-with-a-heart-of-gold performance. Richards is the author of a much-ignored advice column who's trying to drag her hotshot stockbroker boyfriend (Sheen) to the altar. When a phony tip ruins Sheen's career, Richards leaves for Brazil with the owner of a diamond mine. When the publisher of the newspaper that runs the advice column calls, Sheen grabs at the chance for a paycheck and writes for Richards. Unsurprisingly, masquerading as a woman saves his shallow male soul and his witty but insightful comments turn the column into a big hit. All seems to be going well until Richards suddenly returns and finds herself famous. Angie Harmon plays the publisher with whom--unsurprisingly--sparks fly. Jon Lovitz, Rosanna Arquette, and Estelle Harris provide helpful support. --Bret Fetzer

Before I saw this movie, I had my doubts right off. I was wondering why the reviews for this movie were so bad. I thought, "Do I really want to waste money on a movie that I won't enjoy?" But being a die hard fan of Charlie Sheen ever since I saw him as the football jock in Lucas, I took a chance. So I spent my money and here is my opinion of GOOD ADVICE.

First of all, the supporting cast is hysterical! Jon Lovitz and Rosanna Arquette as a married couple. He plays Barry, a plastic surgeon and she is Kathy, his money hungry wife. Estelle Harris plays Iris, a sweet old lady who works at the paper. Ex Melrose Place alumn Lisa Rinna has a bit part as Veronica Simpson, the wife of newspaper mogul Donald Simpson.

The plot is very simple. We meet Ryan Turner (Sheen) who loses a successful job due to insider trading. He is to much of a risk to go work for one of his competators, so he is out of a job. Turner's girlfriend (Richards) is bored and unhappy at her job. She writes for her own advice column, "Ask Cindy." Without telling her boss, or her best friend, Cindy boards a plane to Brazil and no one except Ryan knows she's gone. In need of a paycheck, he assume's Cindy's identity and takes over her column. Ryan is also falling head over heels with Cindy's editor, Paige. (Harmon) In time, everyone is asking "Where is Cindy?" Finally, thanks to Ryan, he has turned this fading column into a popular paper. Now, Cindy returns and the sparks are about to fly! I was not disappointed at all with this movie. It was funny, sweet, romantic, sexy, and smart. With Charlie Sheen, Angie Harmon, and Denise Richards as your leads, you can't go wrong!!!

I just saw this movie last night. I was flipping through the channels and decided to give this one a try. I thought it was going to be lame, but it wasn't! The comedic performances of Angie Harmon's secretary, full of inuendo and some pretty hysterical remarks really made it all worthwhile. John Lovitz and his gold-digger wife also contribute much with their love-hate dialouge. Denise Richards doesn't have a huge part, but does a good job in this comedy. Charlie Sheen, although not usually a favorite of mine, was pretty good in this one, thanks to Angie and her Sec. Enjoy!

This movie was both entertaining and at times, hilarious. Charlie Sheen is great as the fallen stockbroker turned advice columnist, Denise Richards is funny as his ditzy, shallow girlfriend and Angie Harmon is appealing as the editor of the newspaper. Also, Jon Lovitz is hysterical as Sheen's plastic surgeon best friend. This movie is a must for those who want some lighthearted humor. I highly recommend it.

I laughed so hard that I could've used a diaper. Macho man learns a lesson insensitivity. This movie has it all. With the belief that what goes around comes around in time. It is what everyone secretly wishes could happen at some point in our lives to that person who just rightly deserves it.

I guess Madea just got to me. In a bad way. Like it turned me off to Perry.

I almost did not watch this this movie because of it. But the high star rating made me cave in and I am glad I did.

Want something heartwarming with a meaningful message to it?

Watch this movie. This is not fluff- but you won't get a headache over the plot either.

I don't want to really go into the story line because then it gives a lot away.

Trust me that all stars do a great job here and Tyler Perry showed an acting side I had never seen before and was pleasantly surprised by.

The movie was not overly sugary or sappy- aka: unbelievable to the viewer.

This seemed like a real story that could happen to real people.

It is a 2 hour movie but it moved at a good pace and never dragged.

It would be nice if Perry made more movies of this kind- a movie where he is NOT trying to be funny, but instead comes across as truly real, playing a character with depth.

Get a copy before it's all gone.
'Good Advice' serves up the Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman)
line in 'Tootsie'; "I was a better man with you as a woman,
than I ever was with you as a man." with moments in league
with the best screwball comedies of the past.
Charlie Sheen has his finest film moments as Ryan Turner,
dropping his guard for all of us, and winning the girl Page Hensen
(Angie Harmon).

Enjoyed this movie sooo much…funny and light-hearted. Harmon and Sheen were great and the red-headed secretary stole every scene she was in. Great entertainment…no cars crashed and burned and no one died!

A most interesting fun movie that keeps you involved from beginning to end. Charlie is on top of his game, as always. Get out the popcorn, settle down, and enjoy a good movie. That's my 'good advice' to you.
