Overview

The DVD release of this little-seen James Toback film should please fans of the film, while perhaps wooing some new ones. The picture is a solid-looking 1.85:1 transfer that makes good use of the posh New York locales. The sound won't matter much in a measured, quiet film like this, but the Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack is still welcome. Extras are fairly sparse: a commentary from Toback and stars Robert Downey Jr. and Natasha Gregson Wagner, as well as a trailer. The commentary is informative and offers a great look at the making of the film. Also included are a handful of trailers for other 20th Century Fox releases.

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Two girls have figured out a guy is dating them both. They hear him enter his apartment, which they have broken into, and decide to hide for a moment. Blake enters in grand fashion. Singing an aria with mighty gusto and moving through his apartment with physical authority, as well as great humor, Robert Downey Jr. gives this performance everything he has. Quickly, the women confront him, and he utilizes all of that energy and need to perform, to verbally extricate himself from this uncomfortable situation. There is a third girl important to the story, though the audience never sees or hears her. In between the verbal, emotional, and occasionally physical gymnastics between the three leads, Blake takes calls from his sick mother. It is in these deftly acted, one-sided conversations that the audience gains the deepest understandings of why Blake acts like such a heel. This offscreen character reveals a deeper side of Blake as a character and of James Toback as a writer. While Two Girls and a Guy feels a little stage-bound (with the exception of the opening scene, all the action takes place in Blake's apartment), Downey's intense performance, with great support from Graham and Wagner, keeps this film consistently watchable and often downright riveting. There is a certain voyeuristic thrill in watching this troubled actor play a troubled guy, but anyone familiar with Toback's work should recognize in Blake his signature character, a charming but immature man filled with a passion so intense it may lead to self-destruction (Fingers, Bugsy, and The Pick-Up Artist, which also had Downey as the lead). Two Girls and a Guy is a mature collaboration between two talented men who have both fought their share of personal demons.
