|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about A Life Less Ordinary |
|A life less ordinary is one of the bizarrest love stories I have ever seen. Two strangers lives are intertwined with the assistance of mischevious angels. Ewan Mcgregor's character, Robert, is replaced at work with a robot and fired. He goes crazy about this and kidnaps his bosses daughter, Celine (Diaz). She is actually happy about this, she like Robert but at opposite ends of the spectrum is unhappy with her life and bored of getting everything and anything she wants. She's spoiled. God gives the 2 angels (hunter and lindo) the duty of bringing these two opposites together. As they soon find this is more difficult a task than it seems. The film was mainly funny as I couldn't manage to take the script that seriously.
