This is the second film by actor/director Ed Burns, his first being The Brothers McMullen. The two Fitzpatrick brothers, Mickey (Ed Burns) and Francis (Mike McGlone), would appear to have little in common, as the older is a rather volatile cab driver, the younger is a very settled stockbroker. Just prior to the time of the film, Mickey, after a whirlwind romance, married Hope (Maxine Bahns), one of his passengers. Francis has been married to his lifelong sweetheart (Jennifer Aniston) for some time. However, they are both very competitive about Heather (Cameron Diaz), an old flame of… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Burns manages to take on a laundry list of touchy issues in a relatively frank, unflinching manner. His characters retain their dignity and integrity without false dramatic redemption. It's a true adult saga."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"Edward Burns returns to the themes of family and love that he examined in The Brothers McMullen."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"She's The One is carefully observed, well-made, enjoyable, thought-provoking and even funny."
‑ , Total Film
"Could be the best film Burns has ever done"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Like Brothers McMullen-lite and that one was pretty minimal to begin with."
‑ Dan Fienberg,
"A bland, so-so romantic comedy without the charm to see it through."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"Sadly, the 28-year-old Irish auteur from New York lost his footing while stepping up the Hollywood food chain. Slickness set in."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A pleasant package then, easy on the eye, and gently charming but, like The Brothers McMullen, one which places Burns as a comfortable rather than cutting-edge moviemaker."
‑ Caroline Westbrook, Empire Magazine
"Burns' follow-up to 1995's witty The Brothers McMullen continues his wry examination of Irish machismo and its growing irrelevance in the '90s."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Burns doesn't let a larger budget and recognizable actors dilute his style."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"She's the One isn't slick, smooth or particularly good, and it offers only a perfunctory exploration of the human heart."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Burns emphatically avoids sophomore slump with an inviting, ruefully funny film that lives up to his initial promise."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A disappointing second feature from Ed Burns, the director of The Brothers McMullen."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Ninety minutes and nobody got hurt...just the way I like it."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"A nice and pleasant effort that gets Burns past his sophomore test."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
