Blu-ray review: ‘Enough Said’ is the rare romantic comedy that works

See also

Enough Said” will release to Blu-ray on Jan. 14.

The film:

It’s a shame that “Enough Said” is one of the final films for James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in June of 2013. His performance here is another reason why he was so loved outside of just being the tough paterfamilias Tony Soprano, and we will never get to see him take on another one like it again. But the good thing is “Enough Said” is not a miserable romantic comedy, but an intelligent and very funny one.

Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have perfect chemistry together as two divorcees, Albert and Eva, who meet at a party. They go on a date, and the two find an instant attraction. But Eva soon finds out that Albert is the ex-husband of her new best friend.

It’s a rarity to find a good romantic comedy that doesn’t subject its characters to far-fetched situations, make the characters extremely unlikable, and follow every single step in the book. And while “Enough Said” does have some predictability, it’s the incredible dialogue and the remarkable performances of Gandolfini and Louis-Dreyfus that will keep you watching.

The Blu-ray:

While the Blu-ray for “Enough Said” has only a few special features, it’s worth owning just for the movie itself.

“Second Takes” is a compilation of bloopers and is a Blu-ray exclusive. Some are funny, but the last one is a side-splitter.

The promotional featurettes are divided into different segments that take a look behind the scenes and shows interviews with Louis-Dreyfus, director Nicole Holofcener, and others.
