'Til There Was You Review


OK
A cute idea with questionable delivery, 'Til There Was You is a romantic comedy for the very patient among us. Clocking in at almost two hours, my biggest complaint is the desperate need for some cut-cut-cutting -- editing which would have made the film a much more enjoyable experience. It's a cute idea: Gwen (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and Nick (Dylan McDermott) are meant for each other, but they never seem to cross paths. Also in the picture is Francesca (Sarah Jessica Parker), a now-grown-up child actress who ends up being the catalyst that inevitably brings the couple together. Written by My So-Called Life scribe Winnie Holzman, the story is absolutely dripping in the expected melodramatics and sentimentality -- but that's not necessarily bad. It's just that when you combine the film's tedious length with questionable casting decisions (Parker disappoints, & Jennifer Aniston plays a surgeon(!?)) you get a fine mess that eventually redeems itself... just not all the way.
