‘I COULD NEVER BE YOUR WOMAN’: A QUIRKY AND UNUSUAL COMEDY

October 12, 2021 1 Comment

Though I cannot remember for certain, I’m 90+ percent sure I did see this film years ago. However, when they show up on Prime or other streaming service, sometimes I decide to re-watch as is the case with this Paul Rudd comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman.

I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007) Film Review

Working hard and being a mom is something Rosie (Michelle Pfeiffer) takes pride in. But what she doesn’t like is the constant battle with her bosses over the jokes she writes as producer into her sitcom scripts. Now the show is looking to cast a new character and after a series of disastrous auditions, they find Adam (Rudd), a funny guy who uses humor to hide the fact that he’s not attractive.

Through a series of workplace conversations and interactions, Rosie soon finds herself more than a little bit curious about Adam. Trouble is, there’s also more than a little bit of an age gap between the pair, something that Rosie isn’t so sure she likes.

This is one of those quirky comedies that is really quite, well, unusual. There’s a mother nature character, silly antics and sometimes, dialogue that goes a little too far in “too silly.” Still, despite this, for the most part, the film is entertaining if you don’t mind silly. Some of the “nature” aspects of the film become too much, and while I don’t love it, all I would need from the character is her opening commentary. Instead she and Rosie talk throughout the film which is just overdone.

That said, it’s fun to see Paul Rudd (aka Ant-Man) in one of his early days role, and you’ll also recognize a young Saoirse Ronan, who many will know as Jo March from the 2019 adaptation. All this to say, the cast is pretty good and the story has certain heartwarming elements. It’s just not the kind of movie I’d consider a nostalgic re-watch kind of title.

If you don’t mind some quirkiness, a few plot elements that don’t seem well rounded and other oddities, than I Could Never Be Your Woman is a cute enough one-time watch. For certain we can say this film, from director Amy Heckerling, is no Clueless.

Content: there’s sexual references and discussion on a girl getting her period (she asks when she can have sex, assuming it’ll happen at fifteen). A woman walks in another woman, presumably, giving a man oral sex (we don’t see anything). Lots of make out sessions that (presumably) lead to sex happen, including one where the guy forgets condemns. There’s some profanity including one use of the f-word. The film is PG-13.
