5.0 out of 5 stars A Romance with a Twist, 22 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Three To Tango [VHS] [2000] (VHS Tape)
Architect, Oscar Novak (Matthew Perry) and his business partner, Peter Steinberg (Oliver Platt) are desperate to secure a high profile job working for tycoon, Charles Newman.
Newman is married and also has a mistress, who's an artist, called, Amy Post (Neve Campbell).
Due to a misconception early on, Newman thinks Oscar and Peter are partners in more than just the business sense and so, gets Oscar to spy on his mistress when he's not around as he jealously thinks that she may go off with another man.
Trying to keep Newman happy, Oscar agrees then meets Amy and falls for her.
Naturally, it comes out that they think he's gay and in order not to lose the possibility of the job, Oscar finds he has to play along.
One of the great and funny things about the film is just how much his ruse escalates totally out of control until finally his friends of several years and even his parents believe he really is gay.
Matthew Perry is excellent in this role which also gives him the opportunity to play it 'real' where, personally, I think he's at his best. Very few actors get to me like he does when he's portraying hurt and inner struggle - really pulls on the heartstrings. Fantastic acting.
Neve Campbell as Amy was lively and fun and it's easy to see why Oscar would fall for her.
The moment when Amy is about to kiss Oscar and then realises what she's doing and their following fight over Newman is one of the best in the film for both actors.
You can really see the turmoil they're both having - she because she's falling for what she thinks is a 'gay' guy and he because he hates seeing her with Newman but can't tell her of his true feelings due to his loyalty to his friend, Steinberg who will go bankrupt if they lose the job.
All in all a warm and touching film that is extremely funny in places. One to watch again and again.
