Sweet November (2001)
Critic Consensus: Schmaltzy and manipulative, Sweet November suffers from an implausible plot and non-existent chemistry between its leads.

Critic Reviews for Sweet November
Reeves gets the cloddishness right. In a regression from his good performance in The Gift, he keeps waving his arms like a cop directing traffic.
Any movie in which a dying person dons a rainbow-colored fright wig is in serious trouble. But if it also stars Keanu Reeves, well, welcome to the 10-worst list.
Extra-thick vanilla schmalted with just the right amount of raw sugar to summon the awwwws of high school girls.
Who on earth could resist Charlize Theron? Well, if she's imitating Sandy Dennis, it's not all that hard.
Audience Reviews for Sweet November
GAAAHHH!!! Really? Never has cancer-stricken-woman-lives-life-to-the-fullest been so...real. There's a special place in my heart for "A Walk to Remember," but it's admittedly saccharine and melodramatic. "Sweet November" may make you feel gooey, but the characters live in a pretty harsh and diverse world. Jason Isaacs and Michael Rosenbaum play delightful supporting characters of the loving drag queen couple next door. Charlize Theron has the rare ability/beauty? to ground a quirky character, and Keanu Reeves is, well, stone-faced enough to portray emotionless at first, then dazed with grief later. The 12 Gifts of Christmas bit is so hokey, but you just have to roll with Keanu trying to be manic and cute. And double props for the movie ending right where it needed to.
Nice movie which appears to be a standard rom com, but turns sad by the end. Keanu is a little wooden, but Charlize is such a free spirit here it balances out. Saw this years ago, but has forgotten it. Didn't remember Lauren Graham had a small role as the soon to be ex girlfriend. Good message about making the most of your life and taking time to enjoy things.
