I Love Trouble

The main reason I like it, though, is that the idea of news reporters actually digging into a story because there is something being hidden is a nice thought. I rarely see a news story these days that I feel like they have even made any effort. They sure don't follow up with anything locally so this movie is a nice difference. I realize there were complaints by some that there was too much going on and that the story didn't follow one thing, but that's kind of the way that movies go. There was the main story being chased by two reporters that were rivals and had an obvious attraction. The "love story" is kind of behind the scenes which is better in my opinion because it is really more of an action suspense movie anyway. The humor is OK but not horrible. It IS a 90's movie so you can't expect it to be as good as one from nowadays!
Overall, it is entertaining so I will give it 5 stars. The DVD worked and wasn't actually too bad of quality. What more can you really expect from an older movie?
I was happy to find this film and for such a reasonable price, though I had one fear: that it would be like my DVD copies of "Runaway Bride" and "Eight Legged Freaks"--MISSING MATERIAL FROM THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN. I know there is the line on the back of the case that says it's presented in widescreen format and that the black bars are normal; however, I still have my VHS copies of these two films, and it's like the restoring company(or companies) decided to do the work to make it visually dynamic, but then took the lazy route and added the black bars over screen material instead of actually making it widescreen!
I do hope that a company will someday restore these films to their full glory, but for now, at least the parts I can see look good. Thus the four star rating instead of five.
However, I have moments when I want a little brain candy to keep my interest without stretching my intellect. And in those moments, I confess, this is what I drag out. Here's the plot: two rival newspaper reporters investigate a suspicious train crash, despise each other, are endangered, fall in love, solve the case. I hope I didn't give too much away. Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte don't have the snappy reparte that the screenwriters were so obviously going for, but close. They're both great-looking and winsome enough to root for. Predictably, Robert's character is smart and sassy, while Nolte plays a womanizing rogue. The glowering but still incompetent bad guys threaten the daring duo without disturbing your dreams. It's not the screwball comedy to which it's paying homage, but it's a grade-B imitation of an enjoyable genre, and sometimes that's enough. Watch it with butter on your fingers.
