Fast moving, entertaining story starring the lovely Marisa T
on 28 October 2000
This movie has Keaton enjoying himself as the newspaper man trying to live up to his principles (journalist's principles!), balancing his ambition with the needs of his heavily pregnant (and ambitious) journalist wife (Tomei). Full of very cleaver moments, excellent casting and superb acting from a highly professional cast list. All benefit from the light touch of the one and only Ron Howard (Ritchie Cunningham in Happy Days)in the director's chair. This movie is a joy to watch, with some brilliant touchs but does not challenge the brain too much. If you like interlinking stories/characters coming together into a grand finale, then don't miss The Paper. For Tomei fans then this is the lady at her comic/dramatic peak although far from the depth of her later work. A very good buy.
