year of the cometBy a customer from West Midlands , 30 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]A modern fairy story of trials and tribulation but all works out in the end ! Nothing special.
Nothing special but passed the timeBy a customer from Worthing , 29 Sep 2005I rented this film because it had Art Malik in it but I needn't have bothered as he had only a tiny bit part and his talent was completely wasted. I found the heroine of the story to be really irritating and the story of a chase to get a valuable bottle of wine and a subplot about a villain and a secret formula to be slight and unbelievable. Some good actors in this, Art Malik, Ian Richardson and Louis Jourdan but they were wasted in a very trite story.

My sister could write a better screenplayBy JazzBadger from Glasgow , 30 Jan 2005Anyone who has read William Goldmans Adventures in the Screen Trade books will know about this film. An original screenplay inspired by the great mans love of red wine. In his book he makes it clear that he is confused as to why the film bombed at the box office. No-one watching the film will share his confusion.
The story is a romantic comedy based around the theft of a million dollar bottle of wine. Penelope Anne Miller is superb as always, Tim Daly is charming and muscular, Louis Jordan, Ian Richardson and the rest of the cast are fine, the problem is that the screenplay is awful, the story makes no sense, no tiny thread of logic exists that would allow you to suspend disbelief and enjoy the movie, the plot twists would embarrass the writers of Dynasty never mind the man who wrote Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Marathon Man, The Princess Bride . There are a couple of moments in the last third of the film when it begins to work and the lead characters bounce off each other very pleasantly but its not enough.
