Of Note: Originally titled 'Dancing About Architecture'. The movie still contains the line from which this title was taken: "Talking about music is like dancing about architecture."
This was a very interesting take on relationships and how they come full circle. This follows 5 different sets of people and how they interact with each other. This movie has little bits of several things mixed together. It has a little comedy mixed with drama along with several twists along the way. It almost works like a soap opera with how it jumps back and forth between the different relationships. I may have made that comparison but it is way better than an average soap opera. I think the cast really puts this movie in good standing. You have Sean Connery, Gillian Anderson, and Angelian Jolie but also you can't forget the parts that Ryan Phillippe, Dennis Quaid, and Madeleine Stowe play. Overall I thought this was a decent movie and didn't mind the 2 hours I spent on it. I think the way it jumps around only giving you little bits of the story at a time really worked well for the movie. If you are looking for a good sexy comedy give this one a rent and check it out.
