If you're looking for a limp and humorless comedy, look ye no further. If Lucy Fell
is the story of Lucy and Joe (Sarah Jessica Parker and Eric Schaeffer), New York roommates
who agree to a death pact: they will jump off the Brooklyn Bridge if they don't
discover deep and meaningful relationships within the next four weeks. Lucy begins by
going out with every guy that asks. She eventually settles with an overly pretentious
modern artist named Bwick (Ben Stiller). Joe, on the other hand, sets out to pursue the woman
of his dreams: Jane (Elle MacPherson), the girl across the street whom he has been watching
for the last five years. Don't let the above description fool you...there's not an ounce of wit
or humor in the entire film. The outcome of the film is obvious from the outset, and there's
nothing on the screen to keep your attention. Writer/director Schaeffer has managed to create a film full of
brainless characters whom you will care absolutely nothing about, and who blankly wander
around the film's 93 minutes spouting nonsensical dialogue. The only character with a potential
spark of humor (Stiller's artist), is sabotaged by an overplayed one-note performance.
MacPherson demonstrates that she might be a better actress than Cindy Crawford, but has
the same appalling lack of judgment when choosing her projects. You'll thank yourself if
you avoid this bland and meaningless attempt at romantic comedy.
