High-powered New York divorce attorneys Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan) and Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) have seen the worst-case scenarios for hundreds of relationships - so how bad could their own chances be?
While both are at the pinnacle of their careers, Audrey and Daniel are also complete opposites. She practices law strictly by the book; he wins by the seat of his pants. Soon they're pitted against each other in a nasty public divorce between famous clients (Parker Posey and Michael Sheen). The case centres on the crumbling but charming Irish castle which both the parties have their sights set on.
Audrey and Daniel both travel to Ireland to chase down separate depositions. They soon find themselves thrown together at a romantic Irish country festival. Naturally, after a night of wild celebrating, they wake up the next morning as man and wife. Now they have to return to New York to see out on the court case, whether they like it or not.
What the critics are saying:
"...watching this lacklustre mix of dated screwball and Irish whimsy, it's hard to see it as anything else but career suicide."- Neil Smith, BBCi Film"[The cast and crew] are all victims of a script of such colossal banality and gross stupidity that smiles freeze on their faces, leaving them looking trapped and desperate, much like the audience."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone"Pierce Brosnan is impossibly suave; Julianne Moore is faultlessly lovely. But the heat they generate together couldn't spark a Boy Scout's campfire."- Megan Lehmann, New York Post
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
