One Fine Day

0 Love It
Save it
More a mobile-phone movie than an old-fashioned romantic comedy, this irksomely frenetic love story sees single mother Melanie (Pfeiffer, not glamorous but with all modern Hollywood's ersatz PC trimmings) and divorced weekend dad Jack (arch-mugger Clooney) meeting cute all over touristy New York City. It's a tease. Melanie falls in hate at first sight, as Jack's lateness at the school gates means their respective five-year-olds will miss the Circle Line ferry trip. But necessity makes strange bedfellows - though it could hurry up! - as the two are forced to care for each other's kids in rotation while she races to close an architectural project and he hurtles about to support a City Hall corruption piece he's written.
