Definition of a good movie? One that makes you laugh and cry. At least for me. This is probably one of the most underrated comedy/love stories of all time. Directed by the very funny Bonnie Hunt – this story will move you and have you laughing all the way through. Great supporting cast including Jim Belushi, Carroll O’Connor and Bonnie Hunt – it has many surprises and delightful moments that make this movie a classic and one you will want to keep in your library to pull out and watch over and over.
Grace, played by Minnie Driver has a heart transplant, only possible because a woman dies in a car accident, the wife of Bob – a builder and architect, played by David Duchovny. The two of them meet one year later at the Italian restaurant that belongs to Grace’s grandfather and friend, Angelo. After their chance meeting they begin to date and fall in love – never suspecting that her new heart once belonged to Bob’s wife.
The scenes with the older men playing poker and listening to old Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin records are PRICELESS! And I LOVE every scene with Jim Belushi – who plays Bonnie Hunt’s husband.
If you have never seen this little gem – you need to see it!
Below is the trailer from the movie – Enjoy!
