There isn't anything in this that was earth shattering or incredible performances. It was just a good Sunday Afternoon flick, I own this one and forgot how much I enjoyed it until my Daughter and I pulled it off the shelf.
Julia Roberts does a believable job as a woman who has found out that her husband has screwed around on her. What I liked most about this movie was allll of the secondary characters... Kyra was the PERFECT Older sister looking out for her younger one, Gena was Great as the Southern Belle Mama, the Aunt (don't know this woman's name)was HILARIOUS as the "little" crazy Aunt that would/could go there. You really have to pay attention to this movie there are so many innuendos and funny moments that I truly can recommend this one. The actress that played the daughter was wonderful and last but not least Dennis Quaid did quite a convincing job as a contrite husband (once he was caught).
If you want something along this plot line I would also suggest "Hope Floats" which also stars Gena Rowlands and has pretty much the same subject matter but not the same movie. Enjoy.

As a 30-something chick, I have a few romantic comedies and dramas that I have watched so many times I can repeat them line for line. I put them on, if for nothing else, for the background noise. This movie is one of them. The title of the movie says it all; Julia Roberts (Grace) gives the entire town something to talk about when she finds out about her husband's cheating ways. The movie is funny and poignant at the same time, making the viewer re-visit some decisions they made in their lives that got them where they are today. Kyra Sedgwick is absolutely fabulous (much better than in "Singles") and Gena Rowlands is wonderful, as well. Pair that with a great subplot about horse competitions and coming to grip with aging, you've got a great movie that was completely underrated by most critics.

Curl up and enjoy this movie. It is funny, sad, interesting and most of all enjoyable. I disagree with the person who said that the husband and wife spontaneously dance and then live happily ever after. Did we watch the same movie? The wife (Julia Roberts) then goes back to school and her husband begins courting her. Dating, not back to move in and live happily ever after.

Director Lasse Hallstrom attempts to combine two venerable Hollywood genres and several subplots in this nonetheless agreeable morality tale about the bad effect adultery can have on your marriage. Part women's POV romantic comedy and part Dixie family dynamics saga, this is a generational story about what it takes to make a marriage work. It's a little scattered and loose fitting and underdeveloped in parts, but there's enough warmth and bright comedy to make up for the defects, and the cast is fun to watch.

The script by Callie Khouri is familiar but clever with some good human observations and some nice twists. I notice that Khouri also wrote Thelma and Louise (1991), which may explain why, in this flick, it is the men who learn (and need) most of the hard lessons. Robert Duvall plays the still feisty patriarch, Wlyly King, who really needs to learn to loosen the reigns a little, while Dennis Quaid, who plays Grace's adulterous husband, needs to appreciate what he's got and to stop catting around. Kyra Sedgwick as Grace's sister helps him by kneeing him right where it hurts the most, and Grace, accidentally on purpose, nearly poisons him. (All part of his well-deserved and to be continued penance.) Sedgwick sparkles while being careful not to upstage "America's Darling" too often while Gena Rowlands as the mother is steady and sure.

Julia Roberts has become a great star and a great actress, and she is one of my favorites, but there is no question that she felt not entirely comfortable in this part. From the details of the script you can see that she is supposed to be a somewhat ditzy and naively outspoken woman, a southern belle with spunk, a mind of her own, and a desire to be something more than her father's daughter or her husband's wife.

It's got Julia Roberts, Dennis Quaid and horses. What more could you want? Growing into a life you hadn't planned on and making mistakes along the way is very understandable to me. The humor and human reactions to the events are endearing and this is one of my favorite "go to" movies when I want a pick me up. I had this on VHS and searched for it on DVD so can keep it for future viewing. If you like Pretty Woman, Maid in Manhattan and other movies of this sort, you will want this one for keeps too!

Let me first start by saying I haven't seen all of Julia Roberts movies; but on advice I watched this one on a movie channel several years ago and found it extremely believable. I personally know people like those depicted in this feature, especially the character of Aunt Rea played beautifully by Anne Shropshire (The Green Card, Tootsie, The First Wives Club and As the World Turns).

Adultery and the poisoning of one's philandering husband, isn't comical; but both take place within the span of the movie, and the characters are so understandably human one has to give them a pass.

There are several story lines, first Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid, Rowlands and Duvall, owners of a prominent riding stable, and Duvall and Muse Watson, trainer of a Jumper, something for everyone.

Kyra Sedgwick is the sister every woman would love to have; Brett Cullen (Houston native and childhood friend of Dennis Quaid) serves as the respectable, almost lover of Julia's as he refuses to take advantage of her apparent inebriation. Gena Rowlands and Robert Duvall bring just as much cunning and hilarity as do Roberts and Quaid.

In my opinion one of the best and most truthful scenes takes place @ the party following the competition held @ their horse farm; Julia and Dennis dance to "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" and you see the ice beginning to thaw between them which sets the scene for the healing of their relationship.

Not one of her more prominent movies; but I think one of her best, I highly recommend it.

A Post Script: There is profanity; and a few key scenes may prove too mature for some younger audiences. I would suggest anyone purchasing this that has young children to watch it first, before the family sits down for movie night, but in all honesty I wouldn't categorize this as family friendly.
