| Romantic comedy delivers the goods
As the punny title suggests, "Nick and Jane" delivers everything you'd expect from a typical romantic comedy, with a little twist. While I found the secondary story involving Jane's professional life a bit uninteresting, this is a romantic comedy first and foremost, and thankfully it works. And what makes it work so well is the chemistry between Dana Wheeler-Nicholson and James McCaffrey. It's that "are they a couple in real life?" sort of chemistry. (To my knowledge, they're not.) Wheeler-Nicholson doesn't always convince me when she's working alongside the other actors in the movie, but McCaffrey is so good that he brings out the best in her, and I for one fell for their storybook romance hook, line and sinker. The supporting cast is goofy but likable, especially David "Hot Hot Hot" Johansen and Clinton Leupp as two initially annoying gay stereotypes who turn out to be thoughtful, agreeable characters. A thoroughly sweet little movie that proves you don't need major stars to make a romantic comedy work. Still trying to figure out how such a low budget production got to incorporate a Bjork song into its soundtrack, but I'm not complaining.
