Accidental Husband, The (2008, USA) C-90m. ** D: Griffin Dunne. Starring Uma Thurman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Colin Firth, Sam Shepard, Lindsay Sloane, Brooke Adams, Isabella Rossellini. Successful radio therapist and novelist Thurman is getting ready to marry her fiance Firth, when she falls prey to a prank by Morgan, whose girlfriend left him because of Thurman's advice. All of a sudden the computer says he is married to her and when she tries to get the divorce papers signed, their lives intertwine. Completely contrived and none too funny. Thurman keeps wasting herself in subpar romantic comedies.
