A Life Less Ordinary (1997)

DANNY BOYLE

Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BB.5

United Kingdom/USA, 1997.  Channel Four Films, Figment Films, PolyGram Filmed Entertainment.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

At times fun, at times frustrating comedy by Danny Boyle about two seriously disturbed angels (Holly Hunter, ) who are sent down to earth to oversee the romance between a disgruntled employee () and the rich boss’s daughter () whom he has kidnapped. Diaz’s strength of character keeps the film in perpetual motion, as do the small bits of hilarity provided by the celestial members of the cast, but the film’s story is just so inexcusably ridiculous that it comes off as lame more than whimsical.
