Product Overview

Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney star in this heartwarming romantic comedy about first impressions, last chances, and the enduring power of love.

When his life takes an unexpected turn, workaholic divorce Griffin (Mulroney) decides to focus on the good, instead of the bad, and plans to enjoy his time to the fullest. Soon he meets Phoenix (Peet), a beautiful loner who appears determined to avoid relationships - and fun - at any cost. But the chemistry between Griffin and Phoenix is undeniable...and when the two discover they share the same secret, they find not only comfort in each other's arms, but also unexpected happiness in every moment they spend together.

Review Those who used to actually watch made-for-TV films back in the mid-1970s may find this story familiar, as it had originally been told as Griffin and Phoenix: A Love Story, starring Peter Falk and Jill Clayburgh, no doubt trying to capture the same audience of that most popular of all love stories involving someone with a terminal illness, Love Story. It would prove to be popular enough that it was one of the rare made-for-TV films to be later released in theaters...The opposite result has happened with Griffin & Phoenix, originally intended as a theatrical release, debuting at the Toronto film festival, and showing in other countries around the world, but in the US, it would debut on the Lifetime Channel...I do realize that there will be viewers out there that will curse me out for laughing during the tearjerker moments that had them sobbing in tears. Call me hard-hearted, but this film proved to be so inauthentic in its design, that I could scarcely take it seriously enough to truly care about these characters as real people...Griffins and phoenixes are fantastic, mythical bird-like creatures that have absolutely no basis in reality. I can't think of more appropriate names to call these two saccharine, unbelievably romanticized lovebirds.
