In this movie Richard Gere plays "Dr. Sullivan Travis" who is a very rich, successful gynecologist. Need I go on? Seriously....you know where this review is going! lol I'll say it and get it over with right now....where is his office and is he accepting new patients?! lol ;)
There are alot of well known actors in this movie: Farrah Fawcett, Laura Dern, Shelley Long, Helen Hunt, Tara Reid, Kate Hudson, and Liv Tyler.
Dr. Travis (Dr. T) is a very busy gynecologist. His office is constantly overflowing with women...loud, bossy, chatty women! Everyone wants to be a patient of Dr. T. But seriously...can you blame them when you see this staring back at you! lol
Dr. T has many women in his life. A wonderful wife, whom he adores, played by Farrah Fawcett. Two daughters who seem to compete for his attention, and a sister-in-law who moves in with her three young daughters. But Dr. T wouldn't change his life for anything!
Just when Dr. T thought he had it all, his wife has a mental breakdown and had to be institutionalized. This all happens when his daughter is planning a huge wedding and his medical practice is booming! He meets Helen Hunt's character and falls in love with her and her laid back life. Dr. T is very use to having needy women around and this is a big reason as to why he finds her so appealing.
Like any man...with all this chaos going on in his life, he sure does find time to hunt and play golf! lol
There is soo much going on in this movie that I don't want to give anything away by going on in further detail. I will say that this movie is very chaotic with all the women that talk all over each other. Like I said, it makes me happy that I have boys, so I don't have to deal with all the girl drama! lol
With all the craziness in his life the movie ends at his daughter's wedding. And of course this doesn't go perfectly either! Did you ever have one of those moments in life where things aren't going as planned and you just laugh and laugh?
This movie was ok. Not one of his better movies I will admit, but it's a comedy and it is really funny! But on the "Richard Gere Hotness Scale" I give it a 9! He was really hot in this movie, love a man in a tie and a lab coat! And he was dresssed in a suit during the wedding scene! YUMMY! But I think of what makes him so appealing is his attentiveness towards women. One of Dr. T's quotes from the movie is this: "I think every single woman I've ever met has got somethin' special about her, somethin' that sets her apart from the rest."
Since it isn't a well known movie of his, below is the trailer. Make sure you turn off my music player along the right hand side so you can hear it!
Oh and later this week I will be going on vacation to the beach! YAY! We are staying in the same town that filmed the movie "Runaway Bride"....which happens to be my favorite Richard Gere movie! Soooo stay tuned towards the end of the week for lots of photos of the town! And next week's movie review will be "Runaway Bride" of course!
Hope you have a fabulous week!
