This a movie I purchased, because I like Jeremy Priven. Priven and Sherilyn Fenn didn't disappoint me. The movie was well paced, with a delightfully happy theme of love being triumphant. Some might say the plot was implaussible, but to me, so are some things in real life. If I want total reality, I'll watch the news. Want to be left with a sweet, wonderful taste in your mouth and mind? Then buy this movie and enjoy it as many times as I have.

Wonderful Movie! 16 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was surprised at how good Just Write was, since I had never heard of it and it wasn't produced by a major studio. But Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) and Jeremy Piven (Cupid) made a great couple, and I was really pulling for them to get together.
Piven has more screen time than Fenn (bummer...), but he really did a good job portraying an average guy who happens to meet his favorite actress. He allows her to assume he's a screenwriter and asks him to review a script she has. Through their time together (and they are great together!), they fall for each other.
Sherilyn Fenn was, as usual, very beautiful. However, she brought a very attractive quality to this role (I'll call it "sweetness") that made me want to fall for her as well. She was awesome in this movie. I still don't know how she hasn't become a major star!
If you like Notting Hill, Pretty Woman, While You Were Sleeping, and Sleepless in Seattle, you'll enjoy Just Write. I watched it twice and even fast-forwarded through it a third time to see the scenes with both Fenn and Piven. Highly recommended!

Who's been hiding this movie from us? 31 Oct 2004
By J. Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This overlooked charmer achieves the feel-good level that many high-budget romantic comedies strive for...and miss. Sure it requires us to suspend a certain amount of disbelief (A big literary agent with a soft heart? Come on!), but that's part of the fun.

Sherilyn Fenn radiates girl-next-door charm, something she doesn't get to do often enough. Thankfully, she isn't relegated to a role of "dumb starlet," but rather that of a young actor fighting for more quality in her scripts. A look at Ms. Fenn's uneven filmography makes one wonder if she identified a bit with her character, Amanda. This happy, unpretentious film treats her and her fans very well. Such natural talent...and, oh, those eyes!

Jeremy Piven, whose work can sometimes inspire a yawn, shines here. It's difficult to imagine anyone else pulling off this role as well, and we want to cheer for him all the way.

It's even fun to see JoBeth Williams as Amanda's control-freak agent, too busy making deals to worry about pesky things like script quality.

This movie obviously is several years old, and it isn't going to get the marketing spotlight. Like many other reviewers here, I ran across this DVD by accident. My suggestion: Run across it on purpose -- and enjoy.

Best romantic comedy I've seen so far this year! 15 May 2000
By Brian Reaves - Published on Amazon.com

This movie is excellent. You will NOT be disappointed when you watch it. Jeremy Piven plays a character whose humble nature and sweet attitude make him a much more endearing character than anything Hugh Grant has played recently (and I loved "Notting Hill"!). You can see how his unassuming manner could easily disarm Ms. Fenn's character. And Sherilyn Fenn's breathtaking smile and incredible eyes make you realize quickly why Piven's character is so taken with her. Although I will admit that the plot has a few...discrepancies in it (I mean, who could actually just walk up to the front door of a movie star's house and ring the doorbell?), but the movie was over all a great romantic comedy, and one of the few that I immediately wanted to rewind and watch again. Now, if only real life were shaped so that a nice guy could meet that wonderful movie star of his dreams... :)

Jeremy Piven is GREAT!! 11 Dec 2000
By Shane Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've been watching Jeremy Piven since back in his PCU days...he has truly shown his mettle in supporting roles and I was extremely excited when I saw this on the shelf...great story (although a little predictable, but what isn't anymore?) and terrific acting by Piven and Sherilyn Fenn. A must have for aspiring, romantic writers...

Sweet-natured but predictable 18 Mar 2000
By M. Ritchie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is a gentle, sweet romantic comedy that should have been better. The script could have used some punching up; the Hollywood atmosphere didn't really ring true, despite being filmed on location; the movie references are fun but half-hearted (and the characters are dead wrong about Eve Harrington!); the ending, though the kind of ending we want, is a shambles. What's really good are Piven and Fenn.
Jeremy Piven especially shines as he plays against type as a good-natured, innocent, tee-totalling guy still living under his well-meaning but bumbling father's thumb. I've always thought Piven, playing an overgrown frat-boy type, was the best thing about the TV show "Ellen," and I've enjoyed his underrated turns in other movies where he basically plays the same persona; he pulls off this completely different character type quite nicely. Fenn is lovely and does a good job fleshing our her character as the starlet Piven has a crush on. Their chemistry, especially when they first meet, helps us believe their somewhat unbelievable situation. The movie starts off well but loses steam (and gains some big plotholes). I really wanted the dialogue to be smarter and sharper, and Holland Taylor should have had more to do. But if you like romantic comedy throwbacks (there's nary a drop of sex and practically no profanity--I can't imagine why it's rated PG-13), this will leave you feeling good at the end without feeling guilty about enjoying such fluff.
