Did You Know?
at the start of the film as the husband (Brosnan's client) in the divorce case.
When Audrey visits Daniel's office she knocks on the glass part of the door, but it sounds like wood.
[after giving Daniel a new tie]
I thought you'd enjoy owning one without a stain.
That's an interesting presumption.
great screwball comedy, ruined ending
This movie reminds me of the romantic screwball comedies from the 30's,
40's and 50's. The movie succeeds in following the humor, witty dialogs
and great pace witch made the romantic comedies of old so great. That
is, until the ending. The entire ending is ruined, copy-pasted from
every other average romantic comedy today (they split up, the guilty
one realizes his/her fault and runs to his/her lover and spills his/her
guts out… and they live happily ever after). It is not the director's
fault, he even tried his best to make the ending not so sleazy (aka the
excellent wedding scene). Pierce Brosnan is great, in some scenes even
better then Moore, reminds me of Cary Grant, James Stewart in their
best work (Bringing up Baby, The Philadelphia Story…). Brosnan is
actually becoming a much better actor than he was 6-7 years before.
Julianne Moore is, as always, excellent. The supporting is actually
also great, from Sheen, Posey, Fisher, Dunn to the locals in the Irish
village. All in all a great screwball comedy which has not been made in
years, if the ending were any better…
