Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Adventure - Only die-hard fans of star Heather Graham will find much to enjoy in this slow, unfunny comedy. The language and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for children, who would not be interested in viewing, anyway.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
"Committed" is what Joline (Heather Graham) is to her deadbeat husband Carl (Luke Wilson) through thick and thin, for better or for worse. Audiences, however, are likely not to feel the same devotion to Lisa Krueger's stridently offbeat comedy of the same name. I understand the point Krueger was trying to make--namely, the question of when devotion becomes obsession, and knowing when to let go. But in Committed, she has somehow made this potentially provocative subject boring.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Ever since Joline (HEATHER GRAHAM) married Carl (LUKE WILSON), she's felt madly in love, emotionally bonded and totally committed... even though Carl walked out on her two weeks ago.

Convinced she can save her marriage, she drives two thousand miles west on a comic adventure to track down her wayward husband. Along the way, she has close calls with a pair of highway robbers, a Mexican witchdoctor and more than one cactus.

But the real odyssey begins when Joline winds up in El Paso, Texas, finds Carl and stakes out his new life...from her car. With a little help from her brother Jay (CASEY AFFLECK) his new girlfriend Carmen (PATRICIA VELASQUEZ) and Neil (GORAN VISNJIC), her tantalizing "neighbor," she discovers the ups and downs of being the most committed woman in America.
