BARRY NORMAN: FILM OF THE DAY One Fine Day★★★ 5.00-7.15pm Movie Mix
A romantic comedy featuring two of the most fanciable people on screen, Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney, should have been better than this. True, the leads are excellent as well as beautiful. But the formulaic screenplay lets them down. Pfeiffer, a divorced architect with a son, and Clooney, an equally divorced journalist with a daughter, meet for the first time when they deliver their kids late for a school outing. Now, they must take turns in looking after each other’s children, while Pfeiffer seeks to close a big architectural deal and Clooney hunts down a sensational scoop. Much confusion and panic ensue before we reach a happy ending, but mainly it’s the two stars who keep us going that far.
