One Fine Day – A smile at the end

I think this is my third time watching this movie, Β One Fine Day , or is it 5th. I don’t know. But it was one of those movies, that at a very different time made me feel nice. It made me smile and it still does. It was the first movie, before Harry Potter, that made me wish I could get hold of the VCD (that was before the DVD’s became a common term) for my own personal use. It doesn’t have a great story line or anything. Just two nice actors , who I should say are very very nice to the sore eyes (especially after a hard day’s work), with two very cute kids, and a lot of those simple yet nice moments where they struggle to take care of their lives and that those of their kids and desperately not trying to tip the balance.

George Clooney, with all his charm and pathetic dresses trying to juggle between his just-about-to-lose job and his girl child , while his divorced wife is going on her vacation and Michelle Pfeiffer , a divorced mom, with a kid who dotes on his dad assuming that he is still important to his dad as his dad is for him and trying to desperately hold on to her job to get her through. Their kids go to the same school and on a supposedly uneventful day, things turn out not in their favor and they decide to handle it in a way which could be a win-win situation for both, only that they fall for each other in that process while evading through one of the toughest days of their lives.

Not a great story, but a good execution, especially when they have to handle those kids, some scenes are very cute. I like people who are kind of laid back and not stress too much and sort of handle any situation with elan. OK, I like George Clooney’s character here πŸ™‚ , well, there I said it. What is not to like there. Especially when someone is as stressed out as Michelle Pfeiffer is, there has to be a natural balancing act that has to come into the picture now, doesn’t. I honestly don’t know why I like this movie, its just one of those things that gets to you and you feel a sort of warm feeling engulf you and relaxes you to even watch it. Even their struggles make you feel good because you know that they will make it through in the end and they do it with all poise and vigor and a little bit of awkwardness too.

I just love this movie πŸ™‚ and I might see it again sometime later when they play it again on the TV.

  1. I absolutely loved One Fine Day.It’s the fantasy, isn’t it? That your horrible day can turn into magic. That you get to fall in love with George Clooney or Michelle Pfeiffer.
    And that it can all happen in one day.
    Films like this keep us breathing, keep us hoping, and Michelle Pfeiffer has never been more gorgeous. I am so in love with her in this movie.

    It’s a great movie, a gift to the heart.
