Edward Burns, who wrote and directed the movie, plays the role of the most likable world-wise brother, Mickey. Mike McGlone plays his brother, Francis.
John Mahoney plays the narrow-minded, family-dominating father, who has only a superficial understanding of the other family members. Typical of the father's unsolicited advice to his two grown sons is that whether or not one believes in God, he should respect the Church and be a good Catholic.
The two female leads are Cameron Diaz playing Heather, and Jennifer Aniston playing Reneé. The excellent acting gives credibility to all of the characters.
Viewers who are expecting torrid love scenes, pie-in-the-face humor, or gratuitous violence will be disappointed. On the other hand, those who can appreciate being given a glimpse into a mirror that reflects our foibles and unrealistic expectations, will see the movie as a gem.
Mr. Fitzpatrick lives near the ocean and owns a boat, wherein the father and brothers visit and go fishing often.
Mickey is an down to earth and likable guy without much ambition who drives a cab. Brother Francis is not so likable. He is a successful stockbroker whose standing joke is that his brother is the only English speaking cab driver in New York.
Francis is pretentious and conniving, the opposite of Mickey, who is easy going and modest. That they were raised by the same parents seems to be a fluke.
Francis also is a cheating husband. He is married to and bored with Renee (Jennifer Aniston), who cannot figure out why Francis never wants to have sex anymore. Francis, nice guy that he is does not want to cheat on his mistress with his wife.
However, the same can't be said for his mistress, Heather (Cameron Diaz) who doesn't even try to hide the fact from Francis that she is sleeping around. The naughty Heather, for the record, was once engaged to Mickey, until he caught her naked asleep with another man in their apartment.
Meanwhile our happy go lucky cab driver, Mickey, surprises everyone when he marries one of his fares, a mere twentyfour hours after meeting her. Her name is Hope (Maxine Bahns) and Mickey and Hope have every intention of making their marriage work, despite what everyone, especially Francis thinks.
And so the stage is set for some clever if not hilarious situations.
This is a comedy, not a rip snortin funny movie but it does have it's clever humorous moments and it's sort of like a fable too, with a lesson to be learned for those paying attention.

She's the One is a good Edward Burns film, nothing less than I would have expected. French Kiss, on the other hand, suffers from a bit too much detail which is distracting. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Nancy Kostyk
