Movie Summary

Director:
Peter Howitt
Released:
2004
Rating:
PG-13
Laws of Attraction is a romantic comedy film directed by Peter Howitt that centers on two very different high-powered divorce attorneys, Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) and Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan), as they clash case after case. With two opposing styles of how to do their jobs, the more theatric Daniel challenges Audrey to loosen up her strict by-the-book approach to work, life, and play. When the two become the attorneys on opposite sides of a very public and very nasty divorce between famous rocker Thorne Jamison (Michael Sheen) and his fashion designer wife Serena Jamison (Parker Posey), Audrey and Daniel have to continue putting their growing attraction aside in order to win the potentially biggest case of their careers. Of course, things do not go as planned when a trip to the Jamison's Irish castle turns into a wild night of celebrating, including an impromptu marriage, the two opposing councils have to figure out how to remain cutthroat while working as husband and wife.moreless

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Laws of Attraction, like the somewhat better "Intolerable Cruelty," seems desperately unsure of itself at crucial moments.

    Los Angeles Times Manohla Dargis

    Unlike Tracy and Hepburn, the loving and loathing here are absent music and wit and tend to imply that what Moore's character really needs is a good frolic.
