Alex and Emma (2003) short review

Wooo boy!  I knew this looked absolutely terrible, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’ll see anything with costumes!  Luckily this one was a rental… Luke Wilson plays a modern-day author who dictates his novel to stenographer Kate Hudson.  The novel, scenes from which are played out by the same actors, is set in the 1920s and features a love triangle between Wilson, Hudson, and Sophie Marceau.  It’s pretty gosh darn terrible — bad script, bad story, the costumes are only VERY marginally interesting.  Skip it.
