I COULD NEVER BE YOUR WOMAN is a romantic comedy about a mother (Michelle Pfeiffer) who falls for a younger man (Paul Rudd) and her daughter (Saoirse Ronan) who falls in love for the first time. Tracey Ullman plays the acerbic Mother Nature who meddles in their fates.
I Could Never Be Your Woman is about Rosie (Michelle Pfeiffer) is a mother who falls in love with the younger man Adam (Paul Rudd) all while her teenage daughter (Saoirse Ronan) struggles with her own romantic issues. The film was not released theatrically in the United States. It currently has a DVD release date of February 12, 2008.
Then talented young actor Adam (Paul Rudd) walks into her life and straight into her heart. Finally Rosie seems to have met the right man... though he's many years her junior... but is this just one more time she'll have to say I could never be your woman?
OK, this is a romantic comedy so yeah, obviously the romance will survive. Both for the fans of romcoms, this is a great one to enjoy. If the movie title reminds you of the fun 90s songI could never be your woman by White Town, you are right. Its video remained with me long after MTV stopped playing the video. The song is appropriately played in the movie. All Michelle’s concerns about her age passes me by since well…she is gorgeous. Paul Rudd is one of the rare very cute and very funny actors. You might recall his collaborations with director Judd Apatow ( The 40-year-old Virgin, Knocked Up) , Clueless where he starred with he starred with Alicia Silverstone and of course Friends, where he played Phoebe’s boyfriend and then husband. They make a good team and the movie works. Mother Nature is really annoying but I’m guessing that’s what her part requires and I am a woman so yeah, I just want her to leave poor Rosie alone.
