Yawn Down '99
7 December 2006 | by inspectors71See all my reviews

The concept of two people (internal affairs detective Harrison Ford and US Representative Kristen Scott Thomas) with nothing in common but their respective cheating spouses having just died in the crash of an airliner, and the two strangers being forced to deal with the emotional and physical wreckage, holds about twenty minutes worth of interest in Sydney Pollack's Random Hearts, a 133 minute yawn fest best viewed on TNT (in order to avoid the cost of a rental). This is an amazingly dull movie.

I have admired much of Pollack's work (and he is an engaging character actor whose performance in Tootsie was both pleasing and funny), but Random Hearts is easily one of the dullest pieces of film making I've ever dozed through. There is quite simply nothing to hold your interest, not even a lame side story of Harrison Ford trying to prosecute a corrupt cop. There's no intellectual or sexual tension, no intense interest in finding out the details of the spouses' relationship, and I defy you to care whether or not Ford and Thomas get past their grieving to become a couple.

It's all so forced and TVish that I'm not sure why I stuck with it to the ending credits.

This is the sort of expensive, glossy junk that talented actors and directors sometimes put out there to suck us in and make for themselves some quick cash.

I think it would have been more merciful if the film stock had crashed in the Potomac with the cheating spouses.
