5.0 out of 5 stars A 'fairytale' story 13 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this comedy, partly because of the dialogue, which was funny at times, but also because of the actors in it. You have to accept that this would never happen in real life and just 'go with the flow' regarding the storyline. Once you accept that, you can settle down to enjoy a nice, 'gentle', 'fairytale' comedy. Caroline Goodall is delightful as the Prime Minister trying to hold onto her job and being told all the time by her advisors that she isn't as good as her predecessor. Her mind goes into turmoil over her feelings for Liam Marple, a snooping newspaper columnist (played by Robson Green) after she meets him at one of her garden parties at No.10. He has been given the task of getting the 'dirt' on her as the newspaper's owner wants to see her lose the next election so Liam inveigles his way in with the help of his friend, a party fund raiser (played by Michael Maloney) under an assumed name....but things do not go according to plan. Michael Maloney plays the part very well as his outraged friend who obviously disagrees with Liam's subterfuge. All in all, a nice story. Just a pity I couldn't get it in PAL format as I can only play it on my computer and not in the comfort of my own living room.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment 28 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
Another great story line for the talented Robson Greene.He makes you believe his part is real. I bought this after watching WIRE IN THE BLOOD so from a news reporter as Mrs Jones to a profiler Tony Hill in WIRE his leading ladies do make him look good. Would recommend this dvd to anyone who likes a good love story well worth the watch.Very surprised it is only available as an import dvd.Worth the wait and the money one you will watch again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspends your disbelief 1 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
A prime minister conducting a spur of the moment clandestine affair. A hack with a conscience. How unreal can you get? This is the quintessential chick pic and should be watched as such. Watch it for the great acting on behalf of both the main and the supporting characters, some pretty sparkling dialogue, and not to mention the goose bump evoking dance scene - Robson Green dances beautifully.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a "Masterpiece," but nice, nonetheless. 22 Nov 2003
By Jennifer Blackford - Published on Amazon.com
First aired on Masterpiece Theatre, this charming TV-movie stars Robson Green (Touching Evil, Reckless) and Caroline Goodall (The Mists of Avalon). Set in England, Green plays a tabloid reporter writing under the name "Mrs. Jones," who is assigned by his boss to try to get some dirt on the prime minister, Goodall. Ingratiating himself into her re-election campaign, he finds himself drawn to her, and must weigh his feelings against his assignment, while dodging the scrutiny of her staff.
It's a lovely, romantic movie, not to be taken too seriously. This point should be stressed as much occurs in the movie which takes a great deal of disbelief. Think of it as a modern fairy tale that sometimes surprises you. Well-acted by all, as I've come to expect from these productions, and Green and Goodall have nice chemistry together. In summary, it's fluff, but it's intelligent fluff.
[As a film note, both Keeley Hawes and Peter Firth (MI-5/Spooks television series actors) appear in this movie, although never in the same scenes.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Me and Mrs. Jones 10 Sep 2005
By Marilyn A. Lacko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a very good movie to watch and especially if you are familiar with European customs. Robson Green is one of my favorite British actors and I tend to buy a lot of his movies when the movies are released. If you like Cinderella stories and maybe like to escape from reality every so often, then this is the movie for you. All the characters are very believeable and true to form. Even though something like this probably would not happen in real life, its always nice to dream. I recommend this movie to anybody, male or female.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantasy, but fun 11 Feb 2003
By S. Metzner - Published on Amazon.com
'Me & Mrs Jones' is light, entertaining and romantic. It is well written, acted and filmed. Even the minor characters have personality. Though in todays world with security concerns, specificly our leaders it is unreal to believe the ease at which Harry Fletcher (Robson Green) gains access to the Prime Minister (Caroline Goodall), but if you put aside that, the movie is enjoyable from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Romantic Comedies with Chemistry! 25 Aug 2009
By operamarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm an American who loves Robson Green and his chemistry with Caroline Goodall is great in this escapist romantic comedy! I appreciate one reviewer's comparison to "Sleepless in Seattle" which I also liked very much but liked this even better! The supporting characters were well acted, the script interesting and pace exactly right. I played it for a guy and he liked it too - deeming is was much better than most "chick flicks". I recommend it as wonderful escapist fare for the romance that lies buried in all of us! Nice to see Phillip Quast in a dramatic role. I've only seen him in the Les Miz concert and admired his voice and acting ability. It deserves the "Masterpiece Theater" showing and so glad I added it to my DVD collection. Can watch it more than once! Green and Goodall are both wonderful to watch - Ivan was also fun and had some of the best comedic lines which he made the most of. If you like romance and seduction, you'll love this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming and Romantic 22 Jan 2006
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I just watched Me & Mrs. Jones and it was a very good movie. In the vein of Sleepless in Seattle, this is a charming little story of finding love where you least expect it. And Robson Green showed once again why he is such a popular actor in Britain. He is very believable in the role and is a joy to watch.
