This movie doesn't know if it's a socially conscious flick about feeding starving kids or a steamy romantic drama about two pretty people who like to make out in tents. Unfortunately, neither angle is played well. Angelina Jolie is an American socialite living in London who heads to Africa and Cambodia to try to help the starving. Naive to the local customs and the seedy government officials, she works under the tutelage of Clive Owen.
Although he has spent the better part of his life working in the world's famine zones, he's bombastic, rude and stuck in his ways. Naturally, Jolie falls for him, and the two begin a relationship. The love story feels forced, the adventure aspect doesn't work, and the scenes of suffering children and parents hardly make this a good date movie. Run from these Borders.
