A Romantic Comedy With Something To Say…
In Tom, Dick & Harriet, Steven Weber plays Tom, a successful adman who unfortunately is on the wrong side of 50. When his staid, uptown ad agency gets taken over by a hip downtown one, Tom gets fired because he doesn’t have the right image. And as we know, image is everything in advertising. Unable to land a new job and desperate, he hires Dick, a 25-year old con man to be his front. Pretending to be a hotshot copywriter, Dick gets hired at the agency that fired Tom and the scam works – until both men fall for the beautiful and smart Harriet, an art director at the agency.
Though the premise for this rom-com works well and the actors are all charming and give winning performances, this comedy has a a much more serious underlying theme – ageism. In the 50’s there was a blacklist, today there is a greylist, Tom is told when trying to land a new job. People are not always judged by talent and experience but by age and appearance. But this message goes down easy in this witty, funny and fast paced movie. We are made to care about the plights of all the characters: Tom, who is fighting to win both the girl and his self respect; Dick, who after a troubled childhood is trying to find his place in the world; Harriet, who is torn between the two men; and Kelly, Tom’s rebellious daughter who is trying to re-establish a bond with her father that seems to have been lost along the way.
This is not your typical Hallmark movie – the acting, directing and writing are indeed something special. (The film has received several international nominations). So if you’re looking for a sharp romantic comedy with something on its mind, check out Tom, Dick & Harriet.
Note: The movie is also being shown under the alternate title: “All’s Fair in Love & Advertising”.
Tom, Dick & Harry: The Truth is always the best policy ***1/2
Hot-shot advertising guy Tom Burns wins all the awards but soon finds himself out of work when his comedy is sold and despite his vast talent, he can’t find another position as he is 50. Anyone ever hear of the familiar age discrimination nonsense?
Tom has Dick ghost for him. Young Dick at first tried to scam money from Tom. That’s how the two first met. Dick falls for Tom’s daughter and Tom falls for Harriet,an ad executive at the company that Dick is working for while Tom supplies all the goodies.
The film then goes into the relationships of all involved and how they end once the truth comes out.
True to the nature of any Hallmark film, Dick tells the truth to the head of the agency as well as their leading client. The truth as we know is always the best policy.
