Quotes

Joline: I read somewhere, the reason most relationships break down is that each partner is waiting for the other to fix it. But if you want somebody to stand by you always, you have to be willing to do the same for them, even when they're acting like an idiot.

Don't Commit!
12 August 2001 | by jbelkin800See all my reviews

What might've started out as an interesting "pitch" for a movie: a woman so committed to her marriage that when her husband skips out, she randomly drives across the country to look for him.

So, it could be a quirky, wacky, weird indie film if it's populated with the right characters, and script. Unfortunately, they run of ideas as soon as she leaves NYC.

And frankly, it's Heather Graham - we could care less about her after a while. She's just not interesting - she's just bland, boring and frankly stops acting after a while. While they desperately start throwing wacky characters into the mix to revive the movie, it just doesn't work and instead of just calling it a day - they start throwing more characters into the mix so now it's just weird, tedious, boring and really, really long. Luke Wilson's slow drawl acting style slows an already crawling movie to dead halt - why exactly were these two married?

Don't bother and commit to this.
