An average movie

Before becoming a ‘serious’ actor and winning two Academy awards back-to-back, Tom Hanks used to make some pretty goofy comedies and he was pretty successful at it. Well, this movie must be the goofiest of them all and even though Roger Ebert really loved it, I had a rather hard time to care about the whole thing. Of course, the plot was completely preposterous and it was supposed to be really whimsical but, honestly, I thought it was rather annoying. This movie would be the first Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan would make together (‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and ‘You got mail’ would then follow) and it was probably the least successful, even though it was probably more original. The one thing I enjoyed was to see Meg Ryan playing 3 different characters and I especially enjoyed the 1st one, Dede. Indeed, I really had a hard time to actually recognize Meg Ryan and I was quite impressed by her performance. The second character she played, Angelica, was too broad and obvious for my taste and the last one, Patricia, was just the typical blond girl that she has played so many times in her career. But that Dede girl was definitely something different and it’s too bad she was there only for 10 minutes. Except for that, I didn’t care much for the whole thing though. To conclude, even though they tried to make something different, it didn’t really work and I don’t think it is really worth a look.
