has spent the last couple of years languishing in a vault awaiting a release on these magnificent shores.
A lightbulb must have materialised above a studio mogul's head when the movie's then-unknown star Chris Pine recently shot to prominence as James Kirk in J. Abrams's to show us that there was life before Tiberius.
Editor's note: In one of our brainstorming meetings, we started discussing how men probably pay way less attention to how you look on a first date than you think they do.
But of course, we couldn't really know this for sure—so we decided to have one of our male writers go on a date with a woman he'd never seen before (even online) and ask him afterward how much he remembered about her (without giving him so much as a hint that there would be a pop quiz). Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never been on a blind date.
See, the date went really well: Liz is very funny and engaging and intelligent, and we have a similar sense of humor.
James Keach's direction also lacks finesse, clearly signposting future events as the movie rolls on.
Presumably there's a deleted scene where Danny traipses around in a park after a sudden shower to the sounds of a certain Jimmy Cliff classic.
woefully shifting tone frequently severs the audience's involvement with the storyline.
The structure and premise of the story aren't too bad at all, but the execution is lousy.
As if the gimmicky punnery of that title isn't enough, the movie ends with KT Tunstall's 'Suddenly I See' blaring over the end credits after the predictable happy ending.
He finds the possibility of true love with a receptionist Leeza (Jay), but her strict Indian family already has something arranged for her on the marital front.
