Not bad at all
My expectations were very low, so that may be why I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. I like SJP much more in this type of role than the endless incarnations of Carrie Bradshaw that she has played. She has great comic timing, but she has more to offer, and that’s on display here (check her out in Smart People for more of what I’m talking about).
Anyway, racism is a tough issue and hasn’t been dealt with on film in any credible way for many years (I just saw a promo for a new Hughes Brother movie and it looks like a standard action picture with nothing much to say about anything). Spike Lee is making heist movies and John Singleton is completely MIA. So I’ll take what I can get.
No, it’s not a perfect movie, but it kept my interest and it tried to show a bunch of different viewpoints. That’s worth watching right there. I found most of the characters sympathetic, even the awkward, messed up ones – everyone has their reasons for behaving like they do. Yes, the characters are “types” to some extent, but how can you address this issue without showing standard actions that we all have seen? I lived in Philadelphia for many years and worked at Temple University (not unlike the fictional Lancaster College in the film) and now live in very white Clay NY. I could totally relate to the Dean’s dilemma – seeing people who fit the stereotype, but then feeling weak for avoiding the problem. I thought it was pretty real.
And I just loved the closing shot – great way to end.
Unless you are determined to hate it, check this movie out – it’s not a waste of time and it just might make you think.
You know, there could have been a decent story here, but so many “isms” and trite dialog (like a very bad David Mamet play “Oleanna” about sex discrimination….very trite and pointless. Forced dialog that NEVER occurs in real life does not a film make.
Beau Bridges as Dean of a Vermont college, reciting the story of “Little Black Sambo”?…..it doesn’t ring true and SJP while sometimes good, overdoes the fake agenda here…:”I used to be a decent person, then avoided black men on the subway”…. Have we regressed yet again to 1970?.
The final hour of this film is simply awful for anyone with an I.Q. who has lived or worked in a city, any city in a real world. Frankly, I am tired of SJP and that “Carrie Bradshaw” is representative of NY women who are caring, open, emotional, but get hurt when they wear their heart on their sleeve. Trite and awful. The audience deserves better.
