Three sentence movie reviews: I Love Trouble
To be fair to this movie, I was kind of board and would have preferred to read but didn’t have any books of interest. However, the movie was way too long and not at all the movie I thought it would be.* Also, the 26 year age difference made the supposed romance yucky and weird.**
Cost: free from Hoopla, the library’s streaming service
Where watched: in bed, on my new tablet. I sneezed once, and the screen flipped. That was more exciting than this film.
*If IMDB trivia is to be believed I wasn’t the only one who noticed: “It’s gone from a Hepburn-Tracy Woman of the Year (1942) to The Pelican Brief (1993) in a very short time span,” one competing studio marketing person noted before it was released.
**There’s one scene where a really hot 20-something in a meatmarket-type bar picks Nick Nolte (then 53) as the only guy in the bar she would go home with, which I found laughable.
(Aside: Many of Julie Robert’s outfits reminded me of my high school friend Leath’s clothing style, so that was fun.)

Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte as romantic leads? With each other? No thanks.
It was so very, very bad. Also, according to IMDB, the two of them couldn’t stand each other and most of the movie was shot with stand-ins rather than the lead actors on the set together.
