If you’re old enough, this movie is brilliant
Unless life has kicked you in the nuts as an adult a few times, then you may not appreciate the thought and point that has gone into this little masterpiece.
This movie is about how a self serving man (typical adman in NYC) working in a self serving profession (advertising), learns to be unselfish by serving others. He does this first because he has to (get a job because the Government is stopping your welfare), but after a bit of experience, he does it because he wants to.
Yep, it’s that simple, but makes some very true and adult points. Devito’s character isn’t seen to have kids, isn’t seen to have a wife, or anything happy in his life at all except an expensive apartment, but the expensive apartment doesn’t apparently give him any contentment either.
I for one would be interested in seeing a sequel because i would like to see if the main character reverted to type if he got a job in advertising in say, Nunchuck South Dakota, or did he end up as teacher in a prestigious East Coast finishing school. Yay, let’s all throw our hats in the air!
Danny DeVito has given us many fine films but I believe this is his very best. Danny steps out of his usual character, to give a poignant portrayal in this feel good film. The young cast offers fine support. This is a MUST SEE for everyone that enjoys outstanding performances. Not your usual DeVito fare. I rated this a 9.
