Melinda and Melinda

Radha Mitchell made this film worthwhile. It had some decent moments. The main question was interesting – are comedies really tragedies, or vice versa?

Poster for the movie "Melinda and Melinda"

Movie title: Melinda and Melinda

Movie description: While dining out with friends, Sy suggests the difficulty of separating comedy from tragedy. To illustrate his point, he tells his guests two parallel stories about Melinda ; both versions have the same basic elements, but one take on her state of affairs leans toward levity, while the other is full of anguish. Each story involves Melinda coping with a recent divorce through substance abuse while beginning a romantic relationship with a close friend's husband.
