Ryan Gosling gushed about the 1999 drama produced by his partner Eva Mendes and also starring a teenage girl, Scarlett Johansson. The film’s narrative revolved around Kathy Caldwell, played by Johansson, who was fed up with her brother George’s (Nick Fuoco) constant pranks.
George, Kathy’s brother, was turned into a pig by some old pebbles that belonged to their nanny Matilda while their parents were on a trip to France (Eva Mendes).
To meet Matilda’s immediate family and break the spell, Kathy, Matilda and George later traveled to Mexico. Although the film has a humorous but captivating plot, it did not receive good reviews when it was released.
The hour-long, 31-minute film has no reviews from viewers or reviewers and has a 31 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating. Obviously not many people saw or enjoyed the 1999 film starring Eva and Scarlett.
Regarding Eva Mendes and her family, Ryan Gosling gushes.

“My boyfriend fulfills all my 1980s action star fantasies.”

“First of all, the 14-year-old in me gasped when I saw the picture of Ryan Gosling dressed as Ken. I’m guessing how my husband started out as a real “Renaissance,” akin to a “Cenaissance.”
Mendes also praised Ryan Gosling for his upcoming films, in which he plays two very different roles, in one of her Access Hollywood appearances.
When asked: “W “I want to spend my evenings with The Gray Man when I see him. And I want to spend my days with Ken [from Barbie].”
