Notebook Reviews: A LIFE LESS ORDINARY

Danny Boyle – 1997

3.5 out of 5 stars

A Life Less Ordinary is an enjoyable romantic fantasy from Danny Boyle. Something of a change of pace for the director, this is quite light and breezy stuff with plenty of humour to keep things on track when it looks like it might veer too far with the fantastical elements. 

It might have tanked at the box office and it has its faults – but its energetic style and first-rate cast –Ewan McGregor, Cameron Diaz, Holly Hunter, Delroy Lindo, Ian Holm and the always welcome, Dan Hedaya – make A Life Less Ordinary worth your time.
