America’s Sweethearts (2001)

America’s Sweethearts (2001)

The siblings: Kathleen “Kiki” (Julia Roberts) and Gwen Harrison (Catherine Zeta-Jones)

What puts them at odds? Gwen is one of the world’s biggest movie stars, who has split from long-term love Eddie Thomas (John Cusack) and taken up with Latino lover Hector (Hank Azaria). Now Eddie is falling for Gwen’s sister Kiki…

This is a frantic, insider Hollywood farce that finds egos flaring like supernovas and multiple layers of double-dealing. Gwen is typical movie star material – blindly egotistical, self-obsessed and driven by passions – while Kiki, working as her assistant, has lost a lot of weight and suddenly looks like Julia Roberts. It’s no wonder there’s competition. Throw in various lovers and hangers-on and you’ve got a headache for any publicist, in this case Billy Crystal’s Lee Phillips. While it’s hardly in the same league as, say, The Player, Joe Roth liked the script so much it became his first directorial job in 11 years, taking over from Crystal.

Which sibling is your favourite?
