No one expects movies like this one, set as it is in the largely mythological world of fiercely competitive daily newspapering, to be realistic. But neither should they be as flaccid and unconvincing as what we are presented with here.

Again and again, the I Love Trouble script takes us deeper and deeper into the machinations of a high-tech company when what we want to see is Nolte and Roberts outfox each other.

You can tell that they like each other by the way they hate each other. Shakespeare may have invented the recipe, Tracy and Hepburn may have refined it, but Nolte and Roberts certainly hold their own.

Trouble is a sampler of the kind of roles Roberts and Nolte should play more often.

Is there chemistry between Roberts and Nolte? Not really. This by-the-numbers production is more like math than chemistry.

The lack of chemistry onscreen allows the paper-thin premise to collapse in on itself, and there's very little else left to salvage.

Generic as its title, I Love Trouble is like a Xerox of a copy of a facsimile.

It's like the worst possible Newman-Redford vehicle: the script reduces the stars to twinkling mannequins, and their chemistry barely rises to the buddy-buddy level.

There's a pervasive romanticism in I Love Trouble that depends on the chemistry generated by Roberts and Nolte.

I thought this movie was funny and clever. This movie is great to watch when you got nothing better to do. The only reason I watched it was because of Nolte and… More
