About Adam Movie Review

So what about Adam, exactly? This Brit flick tells of a presumably dashing young man named Adam, who ends up romantically entwined with three sisters, all at the same time. Likable yet unmemorable (not to mention extremely unlikely), About Adam is awfully hokey -- hampered most egregiously by the fact that star Stuart Townsend is about as appealing as Frankenstein's monster here. With his overgrown eyebrows and callow behavior, his virtually off-handed seduction of the three sisters is hardly believable.

Kate Hudson (sporting a weird English accent as the only major non-Brit/Irish in the cast) is the first to fall for Adam, a naïve waitress and lounge singer who'd be a California girl in any other country (hmmmm). Within minutes they are engaged to be married -- and, Rashomon-style, we rewind history to learn how Adam hooked up with her two sisters along the way. One is France O'Connor's angst-ridden, Bell Jarrish vixen (and the only character much worth rooting for). The other (Charlotte Bradley) is married and essentially just looking for a cheap shag. So will Adam's affairs impede his marriage to our precious Kate? They're practically common knowledge after all.... The ending is as predictable as it is insulting in the degree to which it disappoints.

There's something about Adam...
