Everyone Says I Love You (1996)

EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU is an experiment in nostalgia that's more 
magical than musty.  An all-star cast of neurotic New Yorkers sing, 
dance, and participate in production numbers.  Unearthing such  
treasured chestnuts as "I'm Done With Love" and "Just You, Just 
Me," everyone gets to get into the act.  That is, except for Drew 
Barrymore, whose voice was dubbed.  (For those keeping score at 
home, Ms. Hawn appears the only trained singer.  The rest are 
warblers, but they can carry a tune without injuring themselves.)  
And if the sight of Woody wooing Julia Roberts is expectedly 
uncomfortable, the Nebbish One redeems himself at the end of the 
movie.  His final scenes with Hawn, who plays his ex-wife, are 
simply sweet.  Great score (and arrangements) by Dick Hyman, too.  
(Rated "R"/100 min.)

Grade: B
