She's the One (1996)

Yeesh – that is one beat-up VHS clamshell package!

Synopsis: Bluecollar bozos bang (impossibly) beautiful broads.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Mickey (Edward Burns), a free-spirited New York cabbie and Francis (Mike McGlone) a materialistic Wall Street stockbroker, are extremely competitive and confused about women as a result of their father’s (John Mahoney) influence. Though they disagree about everything, they have one thing in common: Mickey’s ex-fiancee Heather (Cameron Diaz) is Francis’s secret lover. Though both brothers have beautiful wives (Maxine Bahns and Jennifer Aniston), Heather triggers their longtime sibling rivalry with uproarious and unexpected results.”

What Did I Learn?: Driving a New York cab is a great way to meet hot chicks who want to know all about your sex life.

Really?: Come on, who in their right mind would ever cheat on Jennifer Aniston? Oh wait...never mind.

Rating: She’s the One is a nice little follow-up movie to The Brothers McMullen, also created by Ed Burns. The film offers some solid performances (Mahoney, aka “Frasier’s Dad” is great as a macho, advice-dispensing goof who suddenly discovers his own relationship problems) and more than a few laughs. 8/10 stars.
