“One Special Night” is the classic story of two people meeting each other and taking an instant dislike to the other, then slowly but surely warming up to each other. What makes this movie stand out above the rest in the genre, is that after they spend their ‘one special night’ together, it’s not all smiles and roses. Messages get mixed up, white lies are told and things happen that seem to drive the two further apart and make any chance at romance seemingly impossible.
This is Julie Andrews & James Garner’s third movie together and in 35 years, since the filming of “The Americanization of Emily” & “Victor/Victoria”, neither of them have lost their glow or spunk and can still create the spark between that makes them so adorable.
The two stars of “One Special Night” are far from the average Hollywood tartlets that seem to dominate the genre. Instead they’re mature, well established people that give the movie that little bit more credibility and realism.
It’s nice to see that Hollywood is still willing to make romance movies with actors and actresses that are no longer considered “young” as personally I think people only get better with age.
This move is definitely one that proves that theory correct beyond a doubt!
