LOVEFiLM By Post

Romantic comedy starring Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore. Brosnan plays Daniel Rafferty, a high-powered and media-savvy New York divorce lawyer who between cases finds time to promote his latest bestselling legal books on a string of talk shows. Moore plays Audrey Woods, also a divorce lawyer at the top of her profession, but with a style that is the total opposite to Daniel's. Methodical, hard-working and accurate, she has never lost a case. The two attorneys meet when they find themselves on opposite sides of a contentious divorce between a rock star (Michael Sheen) and his feisty fashion designer wife (Parker Posey), whose bone of contention is a magnificent Irish castle that neither are prepared to relinquish. Audrey and Daniel, one on each side of this high-profile case, travel to Ireland to take depositions on behalf of their respective clients. Once there, a mutual attraction that has slowly been developing between the two ends up in a wild and drunken night at an Irish country festival - and to their surprise and dismay they wake up the next morning to find themselves married. How will they face the impending divorce hearings - and the media circus that is sure to follow - as man and wife?

Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) is a high-powered divorce attorney who never lost a case. She chooses to use the high road method. Seems she is up against a ruffled, anything goes method divorce attorney, Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan) that she knows nothing about. Soon the know more about each other than they want. After a rousing night and a tad, too much liquor they end up married. If anyone finds out then they will have to stay married to save his/her respective careers. Oh, no what is this on page six f the newspaper?

The story is a formula situation comedy. We can pretty much guess the different situations. However, what set this movie apart from many of the others are both the excellent actors and some pretty good one-liners. Pierce gets to be or play Irish and does well. Julianne as Audrey can stare straight through you. Any of the other characters were also three-dimensional. Frances Fisher as Sara Miller really stirs the pot.

"Laws of Attraction" is a romantic comedy about two high-powered divorce lawyers who are battling each other in and out of court. The movie from Hollywood history that obviously comes to mind as a reference point is "Adam's Rib" with Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. But the reason this 2004 film falls short is not because it has Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore instead of Tracy and Hepburn, but because the story and screenplay by Aline Brosh McKenna ("Three to Tango"), worked on by Robert Harling ("The First Wives Club"), is not even close to being in the same league as what Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon wrote for their good friends Spencer and Kate way back when.
There is nothing wrong with the casting of this film. Brosnan and Moore are both personable enough, and Frances Fisher does a nice turn as the mother of Moore's character. Brosnan is Daniel Rafferty and Moore is Audrey Woods. She is a perfectionist who is wound too tight, crying in a stall in the women's room before she goes to court, while he is so unwound that he falls asleep in court before the trial starts. The only thing they have in common is that neither one of them has ever lost a divorce case, so obviously they are perfect for each other. Audrey will be the last one to figure this out and the problem is not that this storyline is predictable, but that it is uninspiring.
This becomes clear early in the film when Daniel and Audrey go up against each other in court for the first time. She is a bit too uptight and he is a bit too laid back; the more you think about it the more you find it hard to believe either one is really undefeated in court.

Wonderful actors - silly script.

I love Pierce but this ISN'T one of his best.

If the price drops then buy it to watch on a rainy day, but don't expect too much from it.

An entertaining film, weakened slightly by the rather unattractive female lead - unattractive in character, vocally, and, dare I say facially, which make less believable that she would appeal to the PIerce Brosman male lead. That caveat withstanding, it was still an amusing film. Brosman is a fine comic actor

DVD in very good condition and with prompt delivery.
Pierce Brosnan can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned but the story line was not as good as usual

Easy watching romantic comedy. Definitely a girls film, my husband was bored half way through. Surprised Piers Brosnan had taken on such a role.

I thoroughly loved this film and had bought the dvd as I already had this on video and do not have a video recorder any more. It was warm witty and sad in places. Anything with Pearce Bronson in it is usually all right with me. I would recommend this to anyone. It is nice to have a bit of romance in your life.
