Remake and update of Buster Keaton's Seven Chances (1925), an extreme example of how the addition of sound can be a subtraction, how more reality can be less believable. Renée Zellweger, who has shown she can hold her own against Meryl Streep (One True Thing) as well as carry a whole movie all by herself (A Price above Rubies), retreats here to the ingratiating cutesy-wootsiness of Jerry Maguire. And Chris O'Donnell is no Tom Cruise, much less a Buster Keaton. With Artie Lange, Hal Holbrook, Edward Asner, James Cromwell, Brooke Shields, and Peter Ustinov; directed by Gary Sinyor. (1999) — Duncan Shepherd
