A pair of angels are not to return to heaven before they’ve accomplished their mission: to make two people on earth fall in love and stick together.
Finally, a romantic comedy that is original, intelligent and truly funny. Not to say unpredictable! Usually I dislike this genre, but i can’t help loving this movie.
The cast is great, and the chemistry between Cameron Diaz and Ewan McGregor is sparkling. (And McGregor even manages to look good in spite of a terrible hair cut. What a performance.) Holly Hunter is great as usual. Please also notice the appearance of Maurey Chakin as the somewhat odd neighbor. If you happen to recognize him, it could be from “My Cousin Vinny”, where he plays the grit-eating witness.
This movie has a smart and entertaining dialog and a number of unforgettable scenes and jokes. And it even brings out the romantic in an old cynic like me.
Highly Entertaining Romantic Comedy
In Los Angeles, the janitor and aspirant writer of trash novel Robert Lewis (Ewan McGregor) is fired and replace by a robot. He goes to the office of his boss Naville (Ian Holm) and has an argument with him, demanding his job back. When the security guards surround him, Robert abducts the daughter of his boss Celine Naville (Cameron Diaz) to escape from the building. The witty Celine convinces Robert to request a large amount for ransom to her father. Meanwhile, the fallen angels O’Reilly (Holly Hunter) and Jackson (Delroy Lindo) are assigned by their chief Gabriel (Dan Hedaya) to help Robert and Celine to fall in love with each other, otherwise they will never return home.
“A Life Less Ordinary” is a highly entertaining romantic comedy with a crazy and funny story. Cameron Diaz is awesome in the role of the spoiled Celine, and show a wonderful chemistry with Ewan McGregor. They form one of the most unlike couples, forcing the angels to use unconventional methods to bring them together. I saw this film on 03 July 1999 for the first time, and today I have just watched it again on DVD. My vote is seven.
