USA 2000, 110 minutes
Dir. Neil LaBute
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Suspense/Crime / Black Comedy

Topics: Showbiz.


Aroview: Part fairy-tale comedy, part edgy thriller, this perhaps qualifies as the perfect date movie.

Due to the trauma of witnessing her husband’s murder, Kansas waitress Renee Zellweger becomes deluded that she is part of the ‘reality’ of a hospital soap-opera and heads out to L.A. in search of ‘ex-fiance’ Dr. Ravell. Meanwhile, she’s pursued by loose-cannon hitmen Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock, who chalk up the kind of chemistry that could give them a spin-off series. This sees dir. Neil La Bute ditching his usual misanthropy for some curious shades of irony, enjoyably mixed with satire and black-humour.
