This is a fun movie. ďMan About TownĒ is a comedy with Ben Affleck, Rebecca Romijn, and John Cleese.
Ben is a Hollywood talent agent - very successful . Heís wealthy and has a beautiful wife and at the top of his game at work. Heís surrounded by friends and family and has his own company that he has put every ounce of his life into in order to be a success.
Everythingís going great until he finds out that his wife is cheating on him and when he takes a journaling class to find answers to his life and do some soul-searching, unluckily, a reporter steals his journal and the dramedy begins.
With such a strong cast, the acting is superb. The writing is hilarious and thoughtful at the same time. Itís worth a watch definitely.
Not surprisingly, though, to me, as an aquarium fish enthusiast, my favorite parts involve this incredible fish tank in the movie.
Benís character owns a gigantic aquarium that he keeps at home as the centerpiece to his house. There is amazing footage of his father snorkeling in the aquarium and watching the fish and commenting on the fish. You should really see this. Itís very moving because his father is recovering from a stroke. It brings the idea of watching fish in an aquarium as good therapy to a whole new level!
This fantastic aquarium must hold at least 200 gallons of water! Itís big enough for even two people to sit in wearing underwater breathing apparatus, as seen in a tender part of the film where Benís character and his wife sit in their beautiful aquarium together and recall their love and togetherness in a previous underwater excursion in nature. The aquarium reminds them of why they love each other. This is the aquarium and aquarium fish as the ultimate Dr. Phil!
Youíve got to see this to believe it! Itís wonderful! The aquarium is a dream aquarium and the moral of the story here is timeless with its emphasis on the importance and value of family.
