We gave it a C

Robert Benton’s film version of Charles Baxter’s novel centers on Harry (Morgan Freeman), a professor who watches as his pals — including a coffee-shop owner (Greg Kinnear) who can’t seem to meet the right woman — experience the devastating, funny, and moving parts of love. In Allison Burnett’s script, Freeman’s character becomes the narrator. ”I thought it was a brilliant choice to make his the point of view,” says the Oscar-winning director (Kramer vs. Kramer). ”Freeman has an extraordinary kind of moral authority.”
