Overview

The discovery of marital troubles in her family causes a young woman to question her own upcoming nuptials in this clever romantic comedy. Sarah Jessica Parker stars as Gwyn, a bright, slightly neurotic advertising copywriter who is initially thrilled when her boyfriend Matt Gil Bellows finally proposes. Soon afterwards, however, she learns that her mother Nina Mia Farrow is indulging in an extra-marital affair with a handsome Latin stud Antonio Banderas. This is only the first of several shocking revelations, as Gwyn soon learns of infidelity by her father Paul Mazursky, brother Kevin Pollack, and even newlywed sister Carla Gugino. These indiscretions make Gwyn question the validity of the entire institution of marriage and doubt her own future. Director David Frankel, who also penned the screenplay, follows in the footsteps of Woody Allen in using introspective dialogue to detail the romantic troubles of a wealthy, neurotic Jewish family; practiced performances and a colorful use of Miami locations give the film its own personality.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
The casting of actress Mia Farrow is no coincidence in this romantic comedy that strongly recalls the films of Woody Allen while conspicuously lacking the keen insights that are the hallmark of his work. It's not that writer/director David Frankel's characters lack the introspection common to Allen's milieu. The protagonist played by Sarah Jessica Parker is grappling with deep issues about commitment and the institution of marriage, seeing a shrink and asking probative questions of her family members that mine their lives for hidden truths about fidelity. So why does there seem to be a lighter, more self-consciously comic, less intellectual approach here? Maybe it's the near-tropical Miami, FL, setting that's exploited colorfully by the production team, or the randy, harbinger-of-Sex and the City approach to the material. There's more sex and magic present here than in the Allen catalogue that's being imitated, but that's only a good thing depending on your point of view. For die-hard Allen fans, it means there's less depth and revelation; for those wishing that Woody would lighten up, Miami Rhapsody (1995) is just what the movie doctor ordered.
