Miami Rhapsody Review
The supporting cast is fabulous: Paul Mazursky (father and adulterer), Antonio Banderas (receiving end of adultery), Kevin Pollak (adulterer with pregnant wife). You get the picture. The only failures here are supermodel Naomi Campbell as Pollacks's love interest, who couldn't act her way out of an insurance seminar, and Parker herself, whose comedic timing is never quite right. Some people are heralding Miami Rhapsody as Parker's breakthrough into mainstream acting. Don't count on it.
Thankfully, the elements of a great neurotic romance and anxiety tale are here, and Parker doesn't drag it down too far. It's an all-too-true story without (thankfully) a cop-out finale: more of a Miami ending than a Hollywood ending. Still, there's a note of hope. I walked out smiling.
