This film has suffered very, very bad publicity and very, very bad reviews. But if you choose to see it open-minded, you might just get to like this mess.
"The Next Best Thing" initially sets itself up as a comedy. Robert (played by Rupert Everett) is always there for his best friend (Abbie), especially when it comes to comfort her over her terrible taste in men. And since he's also keen on men, he gives her a few pointers along the way. However, after a few drinks (and an unbelievably entertaining Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers act), Abbie gets pregnant.

1.0 out of 5 stars A disaster..., 7 May 2006
When reviewing "Love Actually", I thought it was impossible to take a dozen of top-notch actors, and then make a bad movie. "Ocean's Twelve" proves me wrong.

First, it's boring. All of the wittiness of the original has disappeared leaving us with a bunch of enthusiastic actors without a good script. First, it's 45 minutes until something actually happens. When it does, it's plain stupid. And in the end, you're watching this flick hoping that something by the end would be worth your money. Needless to say, there's no such thing.

Second, the plot is way too complicated for this kind of film. This time, it's not just getting in, robbing the place and getting out. It's the… Read more
