Only the Lonely
ONLY THE LONELY (PG)
Sitcom-stuff romance and a loose remake of 1955's Best Picture winner Marty, starring John Candy as an affable, heavy-set police officer who falls in love with a shy beautician and hides the relationship from his domineering mother, herself the object of affection from an amorous Greek neighbour.
Entertaining enough for its duration, with competent performances from the lead actor and love interest, but it's more notable for a return to the screen for actress Maureen O'Hara after a long hiatus. Everyone involved is capable of much better work though, and this is merely time-filler fluff.
