Notebook Reviews: THE STORY OF US

4 out of 5 stars

Rob Reiner – 1999

The Story Of Us is a well made relationship dramedy from director Rob Reiner. Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer excel in the lead roles as the husband and wife going through marriage troubles. It’s witty and dramatic, although some may dislike the heartfelt emotion on display. 

Reiner’s film features a strong supporting cast (including the director himself) – and a great score from Eric Clapton and Marc Shaiman (Clapton’s title song is also wonderful). 

It might be too sentimental for some but if you’re in the right mood, The Story Of Us is well worth your time.
