Video Review: 'Speechless'

Posted on

When the ideal date movie goes to video, what does it become? It becomes even better, since you can push ”stop” before an idiotic ending mars an otherwise delicious screwball comedy. It’s not surprising that a savvy screenwriter (Robert King) would jump on the potential of a certain behind-the-presidential-campaign-scenes romance; the smart move was casting Keaton and Davis as battling speechwriters (and Christopher Reeve as a self-involved reporter). The rest is expected, and no less satisfying for that: agile pace, good insults, not too heavy (or too light) on the political asides. Watch it with your favorite remote control. B+
