Curtain: The Newspaper May Movie of the Month

'Forget Paris'

This 1995 comedy is built around an unlikely romance between Billy Crystal, playing NBA referee Mickey Gordon, and Debra Winger, playing airline customer service rep Ellen. But as a sidelight, Chicago native Joe Mantegna gives an endearing performance as a sports writer who is best friends with Mickey and in flashbacks, tells the story of his complicated relationship with Ellen. Available on DVD, Blu-ray and several streaming platforms.
