Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

She's the One is actor-writer-director Edward Burns' second film, following the widely acclaimed The Brothers McMullen. Given a slightly larger budget to play with ($3m as against his debut project's $25,000), Burns revisits much the same territory--love and sibling rivalry within a New York Irish-American family--but rather more expansively. This time, too, he can run to a few stars-in-the-making (Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, and John Mahoney from Frasier) to jazz up his cast of relative unknowns.

Burns himself plays Mickey, a cab-driver in the Big Apple, with Mike McGlone as his yuppie stockbroker brother, and Maxine Bahns as Hope, the girl Mickey falls for and impulsively marries, much to the romantic delight of Francis' neglected wife Renee (Aniston). Francis, meanwhile, is having a clandestine affair with Heather (Diaz), Mike's former girlfriend--something Mike has yet to learn. Dispensing flawed wisdom and generally muddying the waters yet further is the lads' blunt-spoken father (Mahoney).

Plotwise that's about it. Burns relies on his appealing cast and some amiably barbed repartee to hold our interest in what's essentially a dialogue-driven movie. He makes shrewd and sometimes unexpected use of his New York locations, too--it's a fair bet most people's mental image of Brooklyn wouldn't include a waterfront fishing community. This is a good-natured, slightly old-fashioned movie whose benevolent view of the battle of the sexes (where the women are invariably smarter than the men) never digs too deep or hits too hard.

On the DVD: She's the One is presented on disc in its original widescreen ratio (1.85:1) and Dolby 4.0 sound that does the movie fair justice. Along with the original trailer, we get a seven-minute "making-of" featurette and a music video of the title song "Walls" from Tom Petty, who composed the film's score. Burns provides an unpretentious voice-over commentary, dealing mainly with matters of casting and the problems of shooting on location. --Philip Kemp

Product Description

New York cabbie Mickey (Edward Burns) and his stockbroker brother Francis (Mike McGlone) find themselves in a confusing love triangle after following the advice of their father (John Mahoney) to do whatever makes them happy. Just as Mickey weds his girlfriend Hope (Maxine Bahns), Francis announces his divorce from Renee (Jennifer Aniston) and intention to marry Heather (Cameron Diaz), Mickey's ex-fiancée. The resulting sibling rivalry leads to various comic situations.

3.0 out of 5 stars She's The One 15 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
“She’s the One” is a clever and intelligent film that is written, directed, produced and also “starred in” by Edward Burns. It’s a story of two Irish American brothers, Mickey and Francis Fitzpatrick and their own personal issue and problems with relationships.
Mickey Fitzpatrick is the elder of the brother but he’s become something of an underachiever and a drifter. He’s currently working as a taxi driver, a job that doesn’t impress he father and certainly doesn’t impress his younger brother Francis who is something a young whiz kid hot-shot on Wall Street.
One day Mickey picks up a fare, a young beautiful girl, who’s going to JFK and in an unlikely but wholly enjoyable turn of events ends up driving the fare New Orleans and then marrying her only days after meeting. This doesn’t impress Frances one bit and he accuses Mickey of being irresponsible. Frances’ problem with Mickey’s new found love might have something to do with the fact that he is currently going through a marriage crisis with his wife, Renee, and is currently cheating on her with a beautiful girl of dubious morals called Heather.
To further complicate matters Heather is actually an ex of Mickey’s and is someone he still holds something of a candle for. As Mickey finds that living with his new love in a pokey flat and being constantly broke isn’t so much fun as it once seemed, and Frances has to decide between the two women in his life the two brothers will need to sort their own issues out and the issues that exist between themselves. Can the blunt advice dished out periodically by their father provide any sort of solution, or is he having relationship problems of his own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great film 15 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Edward Burns had a hard act to follow after the success of "The Brothers McMullen" and I personally think he did a great job. This film was funny and touching and never fails to make me smile. I was glad to see some of the faces that appeared in his first film show up again in this one, along with people that everyone has already heard of like Cameron Diaz. A beautifully put together film, with a good script and solid cast. I love this man's work and hope he goes on to make many more films.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special 22 May 2011
By Cath L
Format:DVD
Got bored and turned this film off 10 minutes into first viewing. Decided to give it another go and found it okay but not funny as it suggests. Not one I'd bother watching again.

This film won't make your blood pressure go up or down but it will keep you interested for its duration.The centre of interest are the brothers who can't get on well but who can't dislike each other enough to stay away from one another either.Something a lot of brothers and sisters in real life will relate to I think.And look out for John Mahoney who plays their dad and who was the dad of Frasier and Niles Crane in the tv sitcom Frasier.

5.0 out of 5 stars She is the one!! 8 July 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this film after seeing it on TV late one night, the upgrade to blu-ray is worth it and the music by Tom Petty still sounds good. Great cast and story line, if you like Jennifer Aniston then you will love this, I purchased the US import as it was uncut and region free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull 23 Mar 2014
By janieh
Format:DVD
I'm sorry I'd love to give an in depth analysis into this film, but I quite simply didnt get it. Not funny, not romantic, no suspense, no action, uninspiring characters, no plot, no twist. I'm sorry but I can't think of a positive thing to say about this film other than there was a bit of eye candy for my husband (alas none for me!! )

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn squared
Aniston is a reasonable actress, with a way of making junk film since Friends ended. This one is below average for her, and since her movies are below average, that sets the levels... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best movie I've ever seen,
Not my favourite movie I have to be honest, it's a shame that in this movie Aniston plays a VERRRY backseat role and is featured in it hardly at all. Not the best but good overall. Read more
