Product Description

Romantic comedy featuring 'Friends' star Matthew Perry. Oscar Novak (Perry) is a Chicago architect who has been pitching a project with his partner, Peter (Oliver Platt), to tycoon Charles Newman (Dylan McDermott). Having been deliberately misled by Oscar and Peter's business rivals, Charles mistakenly believes Oscar to be gay, and asks him to spy on his mistress, artist Amy Post (Neve Campbell), to make sure that she is not attracting any rival suitors. Oscar is reluctant until Charles implies that his co-operation could help clinch the deal, and so gets to know Amy at a private exhibition of her work.

From Amazon.co.uk

A charming but problematic romantic comedy, Three to Tango wobbles between sublime farce and ridiculous contrivance in its detailing of the romantic triangle between an architect (Matthew Perry), a rich businessman (Dylan McDermott), and the businessman's mistress (Neve Campbell). What's the catch? Well, after an absurd misunderstanding, McDermott believes Perry to be gay when in actuality it's Perry's architectural partner (Oliver Platt) who is. Thinking Perry is "safe" material, the jealous McDermott enlists him to watch over Campbell so she doesn't flirt with any other guys, the tacit understanding being that if Perry keeps her out of anyone's arms, a lucrative job will be his. Of course, Perry is instantly smitten, and Campbell takes to him immediately. Both are flummoxed when McDermott reveals Perry's orientation, in one of the film's many subtly rich and funny scenes; Campbell is confused but accommodating, and Perry freaks out inside when he understands that if he wants to keep his job and stay out of debt he has to pretend to have no romantic feelings whatsoever for the woman he loves--and be her constant companion and closest friend. When it sticks to farce-screwball mixed with drawing-room comedy, Three to Tango closely resembles Tootsie, in which another man pretended to be something he wasn't in order to keep his job and his proximity to the woman he loves. However, it's the "gay issue"--and that's exactly how it's dealt with, quotation marks and all--that sadly sabotages the film. Where in Tootsie Dustin Hoffman's cross-dressing was taken in stride, the issue of Perry's supposed homosexuality is treated as an oppressive burden; it's not only borderline offensive, it badly bungles the film's delicate dynamics, weighing down a feather-light romance with excess baggage. It's too bad, because Perry and Campbell are better than you would ever have any reason to believe; their courtship is genuinely funny and touching, and after a while you will find emotional investment in these two ending up together. Despite the film's problems, they manage to pull it over the finish line. --Mark Englehart, Amazon.com

Can Matthew Perry play anything else other than Chandler? Should he and does he need to anyway? With the fame and success he's made out of the role of cute mild-mannered but slightly wacky 30-something you can't really blame him for doing it again.
Here he plays Oscar Novak, a struggling architect who along with his partner Peter Steinberg (Oliver Platt) has the chance to land a fantastic deal with big city property developer Charles Newman (Dylan McDermott). And now the one single joke of the whole plot comes along. At their initial interview with Newman the assumption is made that Novak, like his business partner Steinberg, is gay. Presuming that a gay man isn't going to be interested in women, Newman asks Novak to spy on his mistress, Amy Post (Neve Campbell) who he suspects might be cheating on him.
What follows then is a series of misunderstanding as Novak's friends, business associates and even strangers on the bus believe that despite his most enthusiastic protests, that he is homosexual. This culminates with Novak being awarded the Chicago Gay Man of the Year award.
Perry is great fun and although we've watched the act hundreds of times through the "Friends" series it's till extremely entertaining. Neve Campbell is pixie cute and has a real glint in her eye, she has great fun with her role and is extremely engaging. Best of the supporting cast was Oliver Platt as Novak's business partner, with a one-liner quip at every opportunity he steals many a scene and is very very funny. There's also some extremely comic scenes, Novak's father's reaction to the news his son is gay is hilarious.
Now let's be realistic, this is a fun, watchable film, but it is not a 5-star film. It's a way to while away an hour and a half or so, but it's not a classic.

Well I may be a little biased coz I LOVE Matthew Perry, and I have to admit that yes, this character is Chandler all over again. However my advice is just relax into this film without analysing it too much, and enjoy the hilarious comedy arising from what happens when Oscar's friends, family, and eventually whole city, falsely believe he is gay. This combined with the bitter-sweet romantic theme of unrequited love, followed by a totally Hollywood happy ending, make for one of my favourite films in years. I first watched it with a group of female friends and when it ended it got a huge spontaneous round of applause - which says it all. A chick-flick through and through!

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.

The plot is one of those situations that could only ever happen in a movie - desperate to win a contract, Matthew Perry falls victim to a misunderstanding - that he is gay - and has to go along with it, lest he lose the contract. The reason he might lose the contract, is that the rich builder offering the contract has asked Perry to watch over his cute mistress (Neve Campbell), assuming that Perry is `safe'.
Of course, Perry and Campbell fall in love, lots of comic moments ensue as Perry pretends to be gay, truth then comes out and she is devastated, but right at the end she.. oh, you've been here before..? Yes, it is true rom-com assembly line stuff, but where it scores is the casting. Perry does Chandler to perfection - No stretch for him, but it works well, so lets go with it.. and Neve Campbell is just so doggone easy on the eyes and downright appealing that they win you over with their undeniable chemistry.
It has a few laugh out loud moments, a few cringeworthy moments, but a one or two star movie is pulled up to three by the main duo plus a great supporting cast of Oliver Platt (as the actual gay partner), John McGinley (from Scrubs) and even Kelly Rowan (from The O.C.), plus a healthy dollop of energy in the direction.
Undemanding, smile-raising, but utterly forgettable.
