Still Breathing ★★ ½ 1997 (PG-13)

Romance with elements of the fantastical. Fletcher (Fraser) is an eccentric street performer in San Antonio, who dreams of a woman he knows will become his wife (it's a family thing). This turns out to be tough L.A. con woman Rosalyn (Going), whose next sting just happens to involve a Texan. When Fletcher flies to L.A. to find his would-be lady love, they meet cute and have a lot of mistaken assumptions before things come out right. Fraser's character may be wide-eyed but he's no fool and Going displays a needed touch of vulnerability for her manipulative bad girl. 109m/C VHS, DVD . Brendan Fraser, Joanna Going, Ann Magnuson, Celeste Holm, Lou Rawls, Angus MacFadyen, Paolo Seganti; D: James F. Robinson; W: James F. Robinson; C: John Thomas; M: Paul Mills.
