Okay, I LOVE romantic comedies so this is probably not too objective but...gee, I loved this movie. It follows an old formula that has worked so manytimes and that is still working: 2 people who can't stand each other at first happen to spend some timetogether and eventually find each other attractive. This requires 2 mainthings:1.) Two great actors with wonderful chemistry2.) An original and funny scriptWe have seen this in so many movies like 6 Days 7 Nights with Anne Heche andHarrison Ford or You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan or recently inThe Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. I loved all thesemovies for they simply worked to charme me.One Fine Day fits perfectly to this list. George Clooney ( who proves thathe can be a very funny guy) and Michelle Pfeiffer ( who gives a greatperformance in this movie) have very good chemistry and the script is veryfunny and romantic with some really great one-liners.This movie entertained me very much and it wasn't boring as I saw it thesecond time.For it's charme and fun, I give this movie 9/10.
Melanie Parker, an architect and mother of Sammy, and Jack Taylor, a newspaper columnist and father of Maggie, are both divorced. They meet one morning when overwhelmed Jack is left unexpectedly with Maggie and forgets that Melanie was to take her to school. As a result, both children miss their school field trip and are stuck with the parents. The two adults project their negative stereotypes of ex-spouses on each other, but end up needing to rely on each other to watch the children as each must save his job. Humor is added by Sammy's propensity for lodging objects in his nose and Maggie's tendency to wander.
