Advice is the feel good comedy from Magna Pacific, starring Charlie Sheen,
Angie Harmon and Denise Richards. When aspiring young stockbroker Sheen loses
millions of dollars for both himself and clients when some insider trading
goes bad, his girlfriend Denise Richards who plays the role of Cindy, and
agony aunt for the local newspaper up and leaves him. She's off to the sunny
climes of Brazil with her new boyfriend with whom she's been having an affair
for some time.
Desperate and broke, Sheen starts turning in Cindy's column to her editor
played by Angie Harmon, claiming that Cindy is going to be working from home
now due to illness. It's accepted and he starts turning in advice for the
readers of the column with some disastrously offensive opinions and is on the
verge of getting "Cindy" the sack.
With the help of his best friend (Jon Voight), Sheen starts turning out
quality advice that gets readers in hook line and sinker. The paper's
readership improves and he gets a new lease on life. To tell you anymore would
give away a pretty predictable plot.
The performances by all involved in this movie are very solid and will make
sure you are happy to sit all the way through the film without checking your
watch. As mentioned the plot is very predictable and won't change the way you
look at movies, however the strength of the performances keep it all together
is a very nicely presented package.
Video and audio is good for this title with no real complaints at all. It's
funny but this should be the case all the time with recent material however we
are always grateful when it occurs even with new release titles.
only real extra on this DVD is the behind the scenes footage and whilst it
only goes for about 10 minutes, it's a very nice touch and the insights given
are certainly worth it. A favourite actor of mine, Charlie Sheen talks
candidly about his role in the movie as do the other actors and the fun that
they had making the film is evident.
is the sort of movie that you will watch time and time again. It's genuinely
funny and is the type of feel good movie that everyone will enjoy.
