Kissing A Fool: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Genres: Special Interest, Pop, Soundtracks
Most underrated movie I've seen.

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I first saw this movie because I liked Jason Lee's acting in Chasing Amy. While that is a good reason to see it, the movie provides much more. Schwimmer gets to play a role that is the complete opposite of Ross, his character on "Friends." I also agree with other reviewers in that this movie has some of the funniest one-liners I've heard in a long time. Just give it a chance. The bad reviews for this movie usually come from an older crowd. This movie is obviously for a younger audience; people 18 to 30 years old."
Classic Sounds from a Great Soundtrack

"This soundtrack and movie was in my opinion highly underrated by critics across the nation. This excellent score mixes in the awesome rhythms of the Mighty Blue Kings with that of the classic voice of Etta James. The Kissing a Fool soundtrack is the perfect sound for that romantic date however, I felt that the monologue included in the album was a bit dampening on the overall success that it should have received. I was also dissapointed to find that the Harry Connick Jr. songs heard in the movie which fit so elequently, we not included on this soundtrack. All in all, this is a good buy for any fan of swing, love, or the movie."
How Did This Movie Get Bad Reviews?!!

(4 out of 5 stars)
"I have no idea how this movie got panned. While I saw it on a whim at a friend's house (i.e., I probably wouldn't have rented it on my own), it was HYSTERICAL. Like "Swingers," mentioned by the other reviewer, it's a "quote" flick--meaning that you'll be spewing the best lines at unsuspecting friends/family for months to come. Sure, Schwimmer is Schwimmer--no great stretch--but Avital is gorgeous and Lee is hysterical.Trust me: after you see this, you'll know what these lines mean: -"That's good, 'cause you suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccked!" -"Whatup, Chicago?"Granted, the premise is somewhat preposterous, but who cares! Pay attention to the opening scene, where Schwimmer/Avital tell conflicting stories about their first date--good payoff!"
