kevin w Hackneyed and artificial, this "chick flick" concerns cold fish Roz Russell being thawed out by a similarly aloof professor, Ray Milland. They loosely play career-focused intellectual types thrown together by fake news shenanigans. Prepare to groan throughout this bad dream. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member "You are the coldest woman I've ever met in my life! Miss Middlecott, I made a sad mistake when I brought you that locket. What I should have brought you is a suit of long woolen underwear. " Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
