Lindsay (Winona Ryder)and Frank (Keane Reeves) first meet each other at an airport and leave a poor impression on each other. They soon realise when they forced to sit next to each other on a plane that they are in fact on their way to the same wedding which neither one of them wish to attend.
To my surprise, this film is very dialogue-heavy. To top it off, it’s also demanding of our two lead actors as no other characters or actors speak within in this film. It’s instead a somewhat risky idea to try and achieve on screen, but makes sense if we enjoy it like a stage play.
Our characters are harmful, but they are also somewhat humorous, random and very quirky. It’s evident as they meet one another that they share nothing in common and can’t wait to get away from each other. As the film progresses, they soon discover there is more than meets the eye to each other.
It’s also interesting to see these actors appear together on screen for the fourth time (Dracula to name one). Watching this film, it’s evident that the two leads share great chemistry both romantically and in regards to perfect timing when it comes to line delivery from the film’s script.
Our comedy here is unpredictable, but sometimes the witty dialogue and quirky characters can make the film feel slightly repetitive from scene to scene. Nevertheless, there is much to enjoy and laugh at here.
Overall, I found this film enjoyable to watch. While having only two lead characters doing all the film’s dialogue is risky, thankfully our leads are pros. It’s best to treat this film as some type of stage play. Our points give great performances, and it’s obvious our leads enjoy working together. I found this romantic comedy to be unpredictable, but also slightly repetitive.
