Divorced ex-con Johnny (Al Pacino) becomes a cook at a Manhattan café, where he falls in love with Frankie (Michelle Pfeiffer), a beautiful waitress with a painful past.
Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer?? why not! Ignites the Clair de lune in me. Im all for romantic love songs..or poems even.. :)
The inexplicable casting renders this film moot. The roles were originated on stage by Kathy Bates and Kenneth Welsh; the whole point of the play is to uncover the magic between two ordinary people... not two glamorous megastars.
2,5 / good picture of depression
