After his zoologist wife is killed in a car crash, Bob Rueland (David Duchovny) dedicates himself to building the gorilla enclosure which meant so much to her. He has no plans to fall in love again, and is surprised to find himself drawn to local waitress Grace (Minnie Driver). Romance blossoms, but their developing relationship is haunted by a shocking secret: Grace has recently recovered from a heart transplant operation in which she was given Bob's wife's heart.
A romantic comedy vehicle for X-Files star David Duchovny, Return to Me costars Minnie Driver as Grace, an ailing waitress whose life is saved when she receives a heart transplant. Meanwhile, Duchovny's architect Bob is grieving over the death of his zoologist wife and sweetheart since childhood Elizabeth (Joely Richardson), killed in a car accident. A year on, he agrees to go out on a disastrous blind date redeemed by his encounter with the comely and witty Grace. Abetted by her redoubtable Irish Catholic grandfather (played by Carroll O'Connor), they hit it off and start dating. But when Grace accidentally discovers from whom she received the vital organ that saved her life the blossoming relationship is tested to its utmost.
Return to Me is not for the hardboiled cynic-it's a gentle, funny and very charming tragi-comedy. It's sweetly chaste, too, with Grace's self-consciousness about the chest scar from her operation precluding any steamy sex scenes. All this adds to its old-world charm, which is further exacerbated by O'Connor and his ageing restaurant staff's late-night card games, in which they discuss the merits of Sinatra and Dean Martin and generally function as a seven dwarves-type collective to Driver's Snow White. James Belushi also chimes in as the lovably slobbish hubby of Grace's best friend. Ultimately, however, the success of the film is down to the shy chemistry between Duchovny and Driver.
On the DVD: The feature itself is presented in 16:9 widescreen. Numerous extras include trailers, a deleted scene, a music video for the featured big band number "What If You Loved Me", and an audio commentary by writer/director Bonnie Hunt, in which she talks about the unpredictable joys of working with Sydney the Gorilla, whose on-screen performance outshines those of many of the humans. --David Stubbs

it's funny, sad and an absolutely brilliant soundtrack. A basic old fashioned love story which we don't see enough of in films now, David Duchovny and Minnie Driver look great together, but it's her Grandfather and his friends in their Irish Italian ( yes I'm right!) restaurant that for me, steal the show. The banter between them is hilarious, I've watched this films lots of times and each time I see or hear something new,,,,,especially the sign in the restaurant " Genuine Irishman for hire, for singing, dancing, and geneneral carrying on " !
Don't miss it !!
David Duchovny (Bob) is a happily married architect. One night on his way home from a dinner with his wife. Their car is blindsided and his wife is killed.
Meanwhile. Minnie Driver (Gracie) is having a few problems of her own!! Working as a waitress in her family owned restaurant is fine. Despite the fact she not only has a major heart condition. But also a crazy gang of elderly friends and relatives hovering about her making sure she is well.
Cue heart transplant from one to the other.
So, Bob does his grieving in private. Gracie does her celebrating, respectfully. Until one night when Bob's friend organises a blind date at the restaurant where Gracie works.
The date is a total disaster!! But there's some sort of a connection between Bob and Gracie.
Later that night. Bob realises he left his phone at the restaurant, so goes back to collect it.
Cue much mischief making by the old boys at the restaurant, as they can see there's obviously something going on here!!
All goes well and dates continue but Gracie is very careful not to tell Bob about her recent condition in case it scares him away.
However, on being extra nosy around Bob's house one night. Gracie comes across the letter she wrote to the family of the person who donated her heart.
Cue panic. II I mean, how is she ever going to explain it????
