One Fine Day

Weekly Alibi

DIRECTED BY: Michael Hoffman

REVIEWED: 12-18-96

George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer are two overworked single parents in NYC who, in Hollywood terms, "meet cute." They both miss their respective childrens' school field trip and spend the rest of the day trading off babysitting services, cell phones and assorted jibes. Naturally, they hate each other, and just as naturally, they fall madly in love by day's end. This energetic romantic comedy works just about every cliché in the book, but the stars are both quite comfortable on screen, and the mood is often infectious. Clooney and Pfieffer both get to display some genuine emotion, and Clooney is quite disarming as the happy-go-lucky womanizer (typecasting?).
