Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 21st, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "Being happy isn't all that great. I mean... the last time I was... really happy... I got really fat."

Oscar nominations (Soderbergh), BAFTA nominations (Soderbergh, Laura San Giacomo), Golden Globe nominations (Andie MacDowell, San Giacomo, Soderbergh) , CÚsar nominations (Soderbergh), and Cannes awards (James Spader, Soderbergh) for just about everyone in this film except Peter Gallagher.

Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Erin Brockovich) wrote and directed this film, his first feature-length effort.

It's hard to determine who played the better part, Andie MacDowell or Laura San Giacomo. I happen to be prejudiced towards one over the other, so I have a hard time making a pick. They were both fabulous. The repartee between them was hilarious as one was having an affair with the other's husband.

The way that MacDowell turned the session with Spader around was fascinating. The sex became secondary to the conversation and was the best part of the film.

Outstanding acting by Spader and MacDowell.

Ultimately though... this movie is really slow paced. Soderbergh has always been pretentious from the get go.

Hmmm. Conversation is sex in this film, IMHO, so you are saying you want only quickies. :-)
