GREENLIGHT #111: Catch and Release (with "Moonstruck" and "Three Men and a Baby")

Ann and Les would have rather gone fishing than watch Catch and Release (2006.) It's billed as a romantic comedy but they didn't see much that was romantic or comedic about the character Gray, played by Jennifer Garner, getting over the death of her fiance (whom, it turned out, she didn't really know) and finding some kind of love in the arms of his jerky friend played by Timoth Olyphant. Ann particularly thinks this movie is an insult to women everywhere and cannot believe that director Susannah Grant would be willing to put her name to such a fiasco. Les, on the other hand, just thinks it was boring and not so offensive so he gives it a pass. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends the romantic comedy by which he thinks (and Ann agrees) most others should be measured -Moonstruck (1987.) It's a tour-de-force performance by Cher who plays a young Italian widow who realizes she will have a happier and more exciting future if she dumps her nice and predictable fiance, played by Danny Aiello, and instead take on life with his younger brother played by the one-handed Nicholas Cage. Ann recommends another romantic comedy from that year about three single men whose lives are turned upside-down by the arrival of a female in their midst. It's pure charm to watch Tom Selleck , Ted Danson, and Steve Gutenberg , (despite what Homer and his secret order of men sing about him,) learn to really love in Three Men and a Baby (1987.)
