Bed of Roses
1996, ***1/2, Romantic-Comedy
It is more like a bed of lies, but quite entertaining. There is a hot, single man, who loves flowers, and he is stalking you. Some people might think this is a bit scary, while others might see it as flattering. Those who appreciate being stalked will like this one.
In the film, Lewis (Slater, The Heathers, True Romance, Hard Rain) is a flower shop owner in New York City who delivers flowers to people because he likes to make people happy. He walks the streets at night because he is lonely and depressed. One night, while on a walk he sees a woman in her window crying. He decides to send flowers to her anonymously to brighten her day.
Lisa (Masterson, Fried Green Tomatoes, Benny & Joon, Married To It) the woman in the window is an uptight, workaholic at an investment-banking firm, who simply believes she has no time for a relationship. This belief slowly changes as she discovers the flowers are from a secret admirer and she is intrigued, yet skeptical about this mystery person.
This film will brighten your day. Some parts of this movie you will want to yell at Mary Stuart Masterson for being so utterly stupid and annoying. You want her to just accept the fact that she has accidentally, "caught a good catch" and that even she can live happily ever after.
Great supporting roles provided by Josh Brolin and Pamela Segall.
