Me & Mrs. Jones

Overview

Though its title is lifted from the popular 1970s song, the British TV comedy special Me & Mrs. Jones is eminently up-to-date in its tone and content.

Overview

Though its title is lifted from the popular 1970s song, the British TV comedy special Me & Mrs. Jones is eminently up-to-date in its tone and content. Robson Green stars as tabloid journalist Liam Marple, who at the behest of his boss (and ex-wife), Jane (Keeley Hawes), sets about to dig up dirt on Laura Bowden (Caroline Goodall), the new British Prime Minister. Posing as a political fundraiser, Liam gains entrance into Number 10 Downing, where he promptly wins the confidence of the idealistic PM. A thorough professional, Liam had never counted on falling in love with Laura, but that is precisely what happens -- and neither Jane nor Laura's husband, Richard (Philip Quast), is all that pleased over this particular "scoop." Originally telecast in the U.K. in 2002, Me & Mrs. Jones was seen in America as part of PBS' Masterpiece Theatre anthology on January 26, 2003.

    Not a 'masterpiece,' but nice, nonetheless.

    Ignore the AMG summary, which is from a different movie altogether. This movie first aired on Masterpiece Theatre and stars Robson Green (Touching Evil, Reckless) and Caroline Goodall (The Mists of Avalon). Set in England, Green plays a gossip columnist operating under the name 'Mrs. Jones, who is assigned by his boss to try to get some dirt on the prime minister, Goodall. Ingratiating himself into her re-election campaign, he finds himself drawn to her, and must weigh his feelings against his assignment, while dodging the scrutiny of her staff. It's a lovely, romantic movie, not to be taken too seriously. This point should be stressed as much occurs in the movie which takes a great deal of disbelief. Think of it as a modern fairy tale. Well-acted by all, as I've come to expect from these productions, and Green and Goodall have nice chemistry together. In summary, it's fluff, but it's intelligent fluff.

    Wrong Me & Mrs Jones

    The above review is NOT about the Me & Mrs. Jones shown, which stars Robson Green. The Green version (a completely different story than that discussed by the reviewer) is wonderful and well worth buying & watching.
