One Fine Day

One Fine Day

Synopsis

Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney elevate this formulaic, but likeable romantic comedy on the pressures of modern day 30-something existence

About

A cute, old-fashioned romantic comedy with modern accessories.

Pfeiffer and Clooney are two harassed single parents who are forced to care for each other's kids so that they can get their day's work done. The inclusion of mobile phones, filofaxes and PCs may be slightly forced and intrusive, but there's a message here about how they can make modern life even more intolerable for already stressed-out 30-somethings.

Otherwise, it's a pleasantly sweet confection with all the trimmings, whipped up to cheer anyone who has ever found themselves caught between a demanding child and a career.
