    The Next Best Thing

    Insipid drama in which yoga instructor Madonna and her gay friend Rupert Everett provide an unusual coupling as they attempt to raise a child together - until she finds love with a straight man and a nasty custody battle ensues. John Schlesinger's lacklustre final movie is hardly a fitting tribute to the man who made classic films Midnight Cowboy, Darling, and Far from the Madding Crowd. The plot doesn't stand up to scrutiny, the leading stars are horribly miscast, and the decent supporting players - including Benjamin Bratt, Lynn Redgrave and Illeana Douglas - simply go to waste
