Trivia

Martha Coolidge's previous film, Rambling Rose, was produced by Geena Davis's future ex-husband, Renny Harlin, who at the time got involved with that film's lead actress, Laura Dern. Dern subsequently became involved with Davis's previous ex-husband, Jeff Goldblum, whom she met on the set of Jurassic Park. Coolidge's then-husband Michael Backes was also a technical advisor on that film. See more »

Not much of a comedy, more of a drama with some adult humor
17 October 2019 | by pizza_cheeseSee all my reviews

Sometimes I wonder why Geena Davis' 1990s movies (apart from Thelma and Louise and A League of Their Own) received a lot of bad reviews. Angie isn't even as bad as some would think.

Seeing how this film was marketed when it first came out when it isn't even a romantic comedy in the first place, it was no wonder some felt there was too many dramatic things going on all at once. In truth, Angie is an adult with a lot of unresolved issues due to her childhood abandonment by her mother. This 'baggage' leads her into becoming an irresponsible, selfish adult who does not know how to make good decisions; one incident after another, Angie is really one unlikable protagonist despite having a great circle of supportive friends and family. She even has a nice guy for a fiance - someone who actually wants to marry her when she gets pregnant. What does she do instead ? Having an affair with a stranger whom she barely knows.

However, this is the whole point about the movie. At the end Angie learns that it wasn't only her who was having hard time accepting herself. All the people who are important to her, all of them are having the similar feelings - it's just different situation.

I don't know how you feel about this film, but to me, this film is about learning how to accept own's past and how to love unconditionally. Such theme is getting rarer and rarer...
