Michelle & Meg – Paul’s Blogathon

Writing this post, because I didn’t find a reblog button on the original post.

Do you like Meg Ryan or Michelle Pfeiffer? Are you crazy about them or their films? Do you want to see what other’s say about them, their characters and their movies? Paul at ‘Pfeiffer Pfilms and Meg Movies‘ is running a Blogathon this month which features reviews of their movies from a lot of other bloggers. Sadly, Paul’s domain is expiring this April (as I gather from his post) so he is planning to get this Blogathon done by this month. If you have any post which you want to feature there, do let Paul know. I have enjoyed reading the posts and while you are there, do make sure to check out Paul’s other posts on these two main ladies.

One Fine Day – A smile at the end

I think this is my third time watching this movie,  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 🙂 , 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 🙂 and I might see it again sometime later when they play it again on the TV.
