Product Overview

Hot stars Angelina Jolie and Edward Burns sizzle in this romantic comedy about making choices, making friends and making a mess. Lanie (Jolie) is a beautiful, ambitious newscaster who thinks that having the perfect hair, perfect boyfriend and perfect apartment add up to the perfect life, until an encounter with a street psychic throws her world into chaos. With the help of her handsome, wise-cracking co-worker Pete (Burns), Lanie must face a destiny as hilarious as it is romantic.

Editors Note
Note Lanie Kerrigan (Angelina Jolie), an ambitious TV anchorwoman, is adorned in a perfect wardrobe enhanced by her trademark Marilyn Monroe-inspired blonde bouffant hairdo. She is also engaged to a Seattle Mariners star (Christian Kane). To top off her perfect life, her boss recommends her for a dream job, a network position in New York City. In order to increase her chances, he sends her to do field work with the renowned but difficult cameraman, Pete (Edward Burns). when she's on an assignment, Lanie runs into a homeless man, the prophet Jack (Tony Shalhoub), who makes three predictions: that the Seattle Seahawks will beat the Denver Broncos 19-13, that it will hail the following day, and that she'll be dead by next Thursday. When the first two predictions come true, Lanie reevaluates her life and realizes she's missing out on the smaller things because of her ambition. Jolie is sexy, adorable, and whimsical in her first comedy role. The sizzling banter between Burns and Jolie recalls Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant in HIS GIRL FRIDAY. LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT is a lovely departure for director Steven Herek (ROCK STAR, BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE).
Los Angeles Times "...LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT is an adroit crowd-pleaser, and Jolie and Burns exude charisma and the right chemistry..." 04/26/2002 p.C6
Variety "...Jolie is something of an entertaining show unto herself..." 04/29/2002 p.23-8
