Return to Me - * * 1/2*

Bonnie Hunt directs this romance about a man (David Duchovny) who falls in love with a woman (Minnie Driver)…the recipient of his dead wife’s heart. Hunt, James Belushi, David Alan Grier, and Robert Loggia also star. Scripted by Bonnie Hunt and Donald Lake. Previously titled Distance Calls.

Capsule Review: Enjoyable, but by-the-numbers romance. There is some deft handling of some rather melodramatic background material (the death of Duchovny’s wife, and Driver’s heart disease), something which doesn’t seem to be prime romantic material. But Duchovny and Driver find an easy chemistry, and they raise the movie up a notch.
