(nl) wrote: As Jake Klein(Elias Koteas) tells it, he used to be a hotshot film director in Hollywood. But that was a long time ago and now he makes a living selling real estate. However, he feels he is ripe for a comeback, so he is going to make a movie about his own experiences, having already cast an actor(Mike Vogel) in the lead. But then younger versions of Jake start putting in an appearance and hogging the hot tub, along with a mysterious woman(Jane Seymour) in blue. Otherwise, Jake just wants to sleep in late. "Jake Squared" gets off to a fine start with its unique take on a mid-life crisis. And it is fun watching Elias Koteas let his hair down for once(so to speak), along with a very fine cast that also includes Jennifer Jason Leigh and Virginia Madsen. But after a while, the movie is simply content to chase its metaphorical tail. Luckily enough, the movie does eventually catch its tail, allowing for one true bit of insightful wisdom to shine through in the end.

(jp) wrote: All Hollywoodized chaos and action with very little explanation and virtually no story. Some true-story movies are hard to watch because of their subject matter and the way it is portrayed; Schindler's List being a prime example of a 'hard to watch' movie done right. The contrast: some true-story movies are hard to watch because of their display of excessive violence and brutality without much of a purpose; Black Hawk Down being a prime example of the latter.

(us) wrote: Directed by Richard Benjamin, (The Money Pit (1986), Mermaids (1990) and Made in America (1993)), this adaptation of Cornell Woolrich's 1948 novel I Married a Dead Man was originally pitched as a serious film, but was turned into a light and fluffy romantic comedy-drama on the suggestion of the producers. It's got some good moments, and it's better than the critics said. 18 year old Connie Doyle (Ricki Lake) is heavily pregnant and dumped by her womanising boyfriend Steve DeCunzo (Loren Dean). She accidentally ends up on a train going from New York to Boston, where she meets Hugh Winterbourne (Brendan Fraser) and his wife Patricia (Susan Haskell). However, the train crashes, Hugh and Patricia are killed, and Connie wakes up in hospital where the staff believe her to be Patricia Winterbourne and she's whisked away to the Winterbourne home, ran by matriach Grace (Shirley MacLaine) and son Bill (Fraser again). Connie accepts this new life, but her past catches up with her. It's got some good moments, and some good performances as well. MacLaine is wonderful as always, and it's shocking that they still manage to get laughs out of the film, considering an heir and his wife and unborn child were killed in the film, but that's soon forgotten about, and doesn't spoil the film.

Den idn filmatiserades redan p sextiotalet i form av Robinson Crusoe on Mars, men hr grs det aningen bttre, tminstone tekniskt. Filmen lider under lnga stunder av att Dennis Quaid beter sig som ett rvhl, men det r frsts en del av pongen: det r inte mnniskorna vi tittare ska sympatisera med. Tyvrr gr det ocks att man struntar i hur det gr fr protagonisten. Den frsta, och framfr allt den tredje, akten r avsevrt mycket bttre n den lngsamma och monotona andra akten, som gr ut p att Quaid och hans dleliknande kamrat brkar om ingenting i ondlighet.
