| Not that bad
If 'Speechless' had two other lead actors it was probably a bad and most of all boring movie. Not that the movie is good now, but it is definitely not boring either. Kevin (Michael Keaton) and Julia (Geena Davis) are both speech writers for different candidates in an election. They meet, have a lot of fun, are not honest about their professions, and fall in love. Not much later they discover they are from different teams and there are some funny scenes where they can't stand each other. Slowly they become friends again, but by that point Julia's former fiance Bob Freed (Christopher Reeve) has come back and they have decided to try it one more time. Of course you can pretty much guess the rest of the story.

The story is not good, too predictable even for a romantic comedy. The movie can be funny at times, not because the jokes are so good but because Keaton and Davis are so good. They deserve a better movie, this movie can be happy they are in it. They have a nice chemistry and the dialogue between them can be quite funny as well, although Keaton takes it a little too far sometimes. Again, I guess this is the fault of the movie and not of Keaton. For the actors you can watch it but there are many better romantic comedies.
