This movie has all the characteristic elements of a chick flick. As Nicholson says in "As Good as It Gets", when I want to write from a woman's perspective I simply "write like a man taking away all sense of accountability." In just this way Julie plays the role of a woman who believes that being anyone is better than being no one. Because of her ambiguous desire to be somebody, anybody, even (in effect) someone else altogether she shows us, I suppose, who she really is (at least in that sense) Nevertheless, there is the Oscar winning performance of Meryl Streep to contend with. Even in the most banal scenes she gives a sense of versmilitude, even to weak actors on camera with her. A remarkable performance on her part. Can anyone deny that she is the anchor that kept this film from drifting into a sea of ennui?
