A very interesting movie, while set in a more glamorous time, the story line is timeless. While the trailers seem to indicate a comedy, I would not classify it as such. While there are funny moments, it is more a mystery drama than a comedy. The most difficult part of the movie was relating the faces on screen to their names. Since everyone in the movie (just about) was a Sir or a Lady, this can be confusing if one does not pay attention. Minnie Driver was the only non-Lady (by title only) in the movie and I adored her performance. Quite believable. The only comparison that I can make is that Minnie and Rupert should be the stars for a remake of Gone with the Wind.

I enjoyed the movie thoroughly, but it doesn't hurt to brush up on the author who originally wrote the play (Oscar Wilder, I believe). Go, but don't expect a comedy, like First Wives Club.

Rupert Everett plays a womanizer, who must choose almong three women played by Cate Blanchett, Minnie Driver and Julianne Moore. (Lucky Him!) In this film about a single man's search for happiness. "An Ideal Husband" has plenty of ideas which makes it a special film.
