    Out of desperation for a non-Tagalog film, I watched ON THE LINE. (Too bad I watched LORD OF THE RINGS last December and there was not much choice between GLASS HOUSE and ON THE LINE).

    There are three things why this film is compulsively watchable:

    (1) The beautiful Emmanuelle Chriqui. She is pretty. Where did she come from? She has this odd mixture of Philippina beauty with a Latin touch. Its easy to see why anyone can fall in love with her. Me included.

    (2) The presence of r&b legend Al Green. Its not often that a singer of such stature agree to star in a film (the last time I remembered a singer starred in the film for the reason that both protagonists love him was in the Warren Beatty-Annette Bening version of LOVE AFFAIR where the great Ray Charles sang "The Christmas Song"). I absolutely adore Al Green's classic "Let's Stay Together". Great song.

    (3) Cathartic Ending. I mean, real catharsis. This film reminds you of similar films but done much much better. However, this film one-ups other romantic comedies because of the real cathartic ending. I wish this was the ending for SERENDIPITY because it was more absorbing and more exciting and you want a real magical meeting between Cusack and Beckinsale. However, ONE THE LINE's ending was quite uplifting, it makes you feel good for feeling good about it.

    However, the film as a whole is not the greatest invention since slice bread.

    she appeared in "100 Girls". it's about a guy who gets it on with a mystery girl (it's Chriqui as a goth chick) in an elevator. the guy searches the whole college for her since he never did get her name or number. waitaminit... that sounds exactly like this film.
  • GrouchoGroucho drinkless drunk PExer
    Thanks for the info about Chriqui. Yep, 100 GIRLS' premise sounds exactly like ON THE LINE.

    I should have made myself clear the first time. This film is only watchable because of the three things I said above. Otherwise, its like watching a film that was done hundreds of times before, and those hundred versions are much better.

    The reason I chose to watch ON THE LINE than GLASS HOUSE was because Miramax distributed ON THE LINE. As we all know, Miramax is the art-film distributor of Disney and certainly, Miramax has had fewer duds than, say, Fine Line Films (another art-film distributor). The first time I heard that Miramax was going to distribute SCREAM, I thought: "Aww, come ON!". Then when I watched SCREAM, I thought it was a fun film that makes fun of ttself and skewers itself and the horror genre in general. For liking the film, I began to trust the taste of the Weinstein brothers of Miramax for their chutzpah and guts to release films of these types which are 180 degrees from, say, THE CRYING GAME or HOWARDS END.

    So when I finally watched ON THE LINE with those things in mind, I was not prepared for a disappointment. It was hollow, uncomplicated, verges-on-the-silly, but done with good intentions and its heart is on its rightful place. Maybe it was a mistake to cast Lance Bass and Joey Fatone and a whole caboodle of misfits-as-friends (although GQ was quite good at being bad!). However, unlike silly films, there were at least three redeeming factors working right for the film for me (i.e. catharsis, casting Chriqui, and making Al Green sing without looking silly).

    This film should be watched when there are no alternatives left. And if you are expecting it to be bad or vacuous, its really unfair to call it that and certainly not as bad like what most critics said it was (I feel that some critics are snobbish types who always diss films like this, especially when a non-actor [like Bass and Fatone] are featured).

    But do check out LORD OF THE RINGS instead. Its meant to be watched twice. I wish Chris Columbus would watch it too and be told: "this is how to do a Harry Potter film!".
