Nothing Boring About This Film
This movie has been crucified by most critics as being bland and vapid, lacking in any emotional connection that would raise it to the level of, oh, say, Something’s Gotta Give (another Keaton vehicle), or whatever other older rom-com you might want to mention. It is not that bad. I sat in the theater, before the show, and read the critical reviews on IMDb and was waiting for disaster! But I was pleasantly surprised! The guy who wrote As Good As It Gets penned this film. It’s a knock off on that effort, one that one several Academy Award. I left feeling the same way I did after watching that film.
This is a good movie. It is engaging and poignant, and has lines (particularly those from Frances Sternhagen) that are hilarious.
Yes, the theatre was not full when I went, and those in attendance were over 50. I’m not sure why critics would be so upset, just because a movie plays to a particular demographic…
My only complaint about Mr. Reiner (whose directorial efforts seem to be continually skewered) is that he really didn’t need to play the piano player….otherwise, this film works, just as many other older rom-coms do. The supporting cast is uniformly excellent and the only clichéd scene is the abrupt childbirth sequence.
This is a good movie.
Funny with a terrific cast
I found this movie charming witty touching and well cast and acted. The humor was original to this story and spontaneous laugh out loud at times. Written by the same person as ‘As Good as it Gets’ there is one similarity with the caustic man who later does some really wonderful things like Jack Nicholson in that movie. Michael Douglas as a crusty old realtor has a role that is tailor made for him and the drug addict son plot is quite touching since there are real life similarities. He always delivers his lines just right. Diane Keaton as his tenant sings well and doesn’t over do it too hysterically like she does some times. They are well paired so it’s not icky. Sterling Jerins the little girl from the Conjuring plays the grand daughter and she is very sweet and touching. Frances Sternhagen is a very welcome presence. Frankie Valli makes a too short cameo. Liked the jokes related to showing the house.
Don’t know why a delightful movie like this has been so savaged by critics. Compared to other recent rom coms with older actors, it is better than “Hope Springs” with Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep which was cringe inducing and better than “It’s Complicated” with Meryl and Alec Baldwin which felt forced and contrived.
