The Object of My Affection 1998

     George finds out from Nina that his partner is breaking up with him.  Nina asks George if he would like to live in the spare bedroom of her Brooklyn apartment.  Nina is seeing Vince and she learns she is having a baby.  Vince doesn’t trust George living with Nina but the baby is the son or daughter of Vince.  Everything is OK now between everyone except Vince becomes a real pain.  He also becomes overbearing and smothering about the pregnancy.   Nina can’t take anymore of his pushiness and she tells Vince she doesn’t want to be with him or marry him.  Of course, Vince is mad and he blames George.  George is thinking about being the surrogate dad but he’s not sure?
     I was confused about this film for a while.  I thought this was a new release and I couldn’t figure out how Aniston and Rudd looked so young.  It was released again in 2010.  There are a lot of complications because the characters don't talk to each other and they don't listen when they do talk.  3* (This movie is OK)

111 min, Comedy directed by Nicholas Hytner with Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd, Kali Rocha, Alan Alda, Allison Janney, Tim Daly.

Note:  Imdb 6.0 out of 10, 49% critic 51% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2*, Amazon 4.1* out of 5* with 188 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, New York; Norwalk, New Canaan, Connecticut; Weehawken, New Jersey.  Sarah Jessica Parker and Robert Downey Jr. were originally cast as Nina and George.  There are mistakes with George’s shirt buttons, open, closed, open again.  The TV Series Friends with Jennifer Aniston started in 2004.
