    This movie was ok at best. Phoenix was solid as always. But I think it was the worst I've seen from Paltrow in a long while. I just found her character totally unbelievable...not sure if it was her acting or the writing. maybe both. I just didn't buy it. Even though the film did it's best to put a new spin on the "love triangle" theme, it still felt cliche to me.

  1. Phoenix plays the romantic lead with great intelligence and enormous charm, making his character's conflict utterly believable, and Paltrow positively glows as the radiant shiksa who dazzles him.

    This very New York tale is old-fashioned in good ways that have to do with solid storytelling, craftsmanship and emotional acuity.
  3. Although Paltrow is radiant (and she nails the character’s ditzy sense of entitlement), it's Phoenix's movie. He is, once again, stupendous, and stupendous in a way he has never been before.
