    He probably never heard of it 'cause it was promoted as a "chick flick" (basically the only way it could have probably). Most guys instinctively, automatically "tune out" and don't even notice stuff like this. They would have to be dragged kicking and screaming to see something like this. I will watch it with my wife however when it comes out on DVD or cable. I can always sleep through part of it if necessary.

    For what it's worth, I have always loved Diane Lane. Ever since I saw a movie (can't even remember the name) a long time ago, where she was being watched while taking a bath, about 5 times! [later edit- "Lady Beware" 1987]

    Also, she was great as Lorie darlin in Lonesome Dove, the greatest (partial chick-flick) western ever.

    The trailers for this actually seemed kind of funny ... for a chick flick. I'll pick it up (for my wife of course).

    Saw this film - marvelous and Lane should get nominated for best Actress.
    The DVD is supposed to have some deleted scenes. I hope so. The trailers ahve several scenes of Lane in Rome but in the fianl film she NEVER goes to Rome.

    The Press Release:

    DIANE LANE
    Stars In
    UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN
    Escape To Adventure And Romance on DVD February 3, 2004
    BURBANK, Calif., November 12, 2003 – Touchstone Home Entertainment, who brought audiences “Sweet Home Alabama,” invites you to escape with Academy Award® nominee Diane Lane to beautiful Tuscany in search of adventure and unexpected surprises in UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN, on DVD and VHS on February 3, 2004. This acclaimed film, set in the vibrant and stunning Tuscan countryside, is the theatrical box office hit that has won over critics and film audiences alike. Featuring a breakthrough performance by Diane Lane (Best Actress nominee, “Unfaithful,” 2002) the romantic comedy UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN is available just in time for Valentine’s Day. On DVD, audiences will be treated to deleted scenes, and get a special insiders look at filming in Italy with filmmaker and cast interviews including Diane Lane and Under The Tuscan Sun novelist Frances Mayes. There is also insightful feature audio commentary with Director Audrey Wells, and the DVD is available in separate widescreen and full-frame editions. UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN will be available for $29.99 (S.R.P.) on DVD and $24.99 (S.R.P.) on VHS.

    The life of freshly divorced San Francisco writer Frances Mayes (Diane Lane) is about to take an unexpected but much needed upturn. Trying to shake Frances out of her lethargy and post-breakup funk, her friend Patti (Sandra Oh, TV’s “Arliss;” “The Princess Diaries”) offers Frances a gift that she hopes will do the trick: a ten-day trip to Tuscany, in the heart of Italy. And right there, under the Tuscan sun, the unlikeliest thing happens: Frances impulsively buys a run-down villa named “Bramasole” – literally, “something that yearns for the sun” – and in so doing, plunges herself into a brand new life. As she embraces the local ways and devotes herself to the restoration of her new home, Frances finds herself forming close bonds with the people around her and slowly rediscovering the pleasures of laughter, friendship and romance. Even as she stumbles forward on her uncertain journey, one thing becomes clear: in life, there are second chances.

    Screen Story and screenplay by Audrey Wells. Based on the book Under The Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes. Produced by Tom Sternberg and Audrey Wells. Executive Producers Laura Fattori, Sandy Kroopf, Mark Gill. Directed by Audrey Wells.

    Diane Lane was up for Best Actress at the Golden Globes for this. Excellent performance but maybe an Oscar nomination is now a bit unlikely.
