One Fine Day Reviews
George Clooney is what you could call a late-bloomer. Indeed, even though he is nowadays one of the biggest movie stars in the world, he was already in his 30’s when he got his breakthrough with ‘E.R.’ Then, pretty much like his best buddy Brad Pitt, even though he moved on pretty quickly to the silver screen, it took him some time to find his game and I think the ball really started to roll with him with ‘Out of Sight’ back in 1998. Before that, he made some commercial but rather uninteresting flicks (the worst one being bviously ‘Batman & Robin’) and this movie was definitely one of those. I mean, it wasn't really awful whatsoever, it is a watchable romance involving two of the most charming actors in Hollywood, Clooney himself and Michelle Pfeiffer, and they definitely had some good chemistry. Unfortunately, there was a terrible lack of ambition here, the whole thing felt rather pedestrian and predictable and George Clooney would make some much more remarkable features in the years following. It did make sense though that he would chose such a project at this point in his career. Indeed, it was one of his first starring roles and his status as an heartthrob in ‘E.R.’ would guarantee that his fans would eat up a romantic feature like this one. To conclude, even though it is nothing amazing, it remains a decent romance and it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
