According to US
Once I dug out this
tape and watched it after what seemed like ages since the first time, I
needed to watch it again...and then one more time for good measure. I
kept meaning to take notes, and when the movie started I would jot
things down - and then Rick would enter the scene. Then the movie was
over, and heck if I didn't write anything down! So, rewind...start
again...sigh. It's sickening how that man turns me into an airhead! It's
also maddening because he's not even singing in this one!
|When I was in Junior High, I would read
Harlequin Romances in the summer time. I liked their nice neat
storylines, and their tidy little endings. I could predict within the
first couple of pages who would fall in love and be together in the end,
but I liked it that way. So, this movie was right up my alley.
This is probably my second favorite TV movie that Rick did (my favorite being Nick Knight).
I really liked Andrea Roth as the leading lady. Probably the most attractive actress that ever played opposite of Rick. She was a little young. My one complaint with her is I don't think she did a very good job of distinguishing between the two characters. Kim and Kate seemed way too similar and they just seemed to stick a drink in Kate's hands and dress her a little sexier to make a difference, but other than that they seemed too much alike.
Rick doesn't appear in the movie until 24 minutes into it. Not sure how he got top billing with that. I liked the story, I like that Rick plays a relatively sane, nice guy. He's very cute, I love his hair in this movie, and he dresses nice, although those pants were a little baggy and little high waisted.
Here's some highlights/comments:
*Rick plays jealous really well
*When Philip and Dominique bump into each other, the smile, then the look of displeasure - very nice
*Marie has a line - "all the charm of a cobra" - wouldn't that be "all the charm of a pit bull" :-)
*Dominique supposedly looses the 5 pounds, but her jeans fit the same
*Philip puts the necklace on Dominique, he probably thinks she's drunk, the way he looks at her neck - very nice.
*When Philip takes Dominique home, he wants the outfit back since it belongs to the company, the door doesn't shut all the way, he watches her undress, he has the cutest guilty grin on his face.
*when he comes to pick her up, he's leaning against the door in that green shirt, and says "hi"......oye
*He tries to kiss her, she stops him - what up with that??
*When Philip is showing Dominique his house, I like this line, he says "I guess what I'm asking is for you to show me my own etchings".
* When they find out Mimi and the baby are ok, Rick does his signature "fist thing"
*There's a very nice kiss, where he kisses just her upper lip. Kind of reminds me of the upside down kiss in Spiderman (that was very erotic).
*the sex scene - my oh my - Rick in boxers, her legs are wrapped around his body, the kisses, the roll around. It's really well done, without really showing anything. This movie was directed by a woman, by the way.
*She wakes up the next morning, she's in his shirt, yet he's in his shirt.
*He gets her breakfast, very romantic. Rick's eyes were especially wrinkly in this scene, it actually looked like maybe he didn't get a lot of sleep and just woke up.
*Very nice emotional scene when he tells the story about his mother. I would definitely have to put this in the Top 10 best acted scenes he's ever done.
*Jacqueline's voice seems to be dubbed, it's very weird. I guess maybe they had a French actress play her part, then when they put the movie together they probably couldn't understand her, so had to fix that.
I give this movie a 9.75
