Hot Movies: A fine romance for odd couples; PLAYING BY HEART.
Angelina Jolie is unmissable as a motor-mouthed club chick who can't understand why the cute guy with the blue hair (Ryan Phillipe) rejects her advances.
Gillian Anderson is great too as a neurotic theatre director who presses the self-destruct button on her budding romance with an architect (Jon Stewart) because he's just too good to be true.
Other odd couples include Sean Connery and Gena Rowlands coping with an ancient infidelity and a brand new brain tumour, Madeleine Stowe and Anthony Edwards getting jiggy with it and Dennis Quaid trying his luck in singles bars.
A smart, occasionally soppy romance for grown-ups.
Romantic comedy drama, Cert 15
