quirky incongruous parts
Henry Herschel (Jason Sudeikis) is a by-the-book architect in New Orleans. His pregnant wife Penny (Jessica Biel) is intrigued with neighborhood kid Millie Pearlman (Maisie Williams). She makes him promise to help her despite his reluctance. Penny dies in a car crash. Millie is an orphan living with her uncaring uncle collecting junk to build a raft to sail across the Atlantic.
The funeral is when the movie starts going off its tracks. Everybody is trying to be quirky while Henry is a sad sack in a depressing funeral. The tones are clashing so hard. The sad death is never far away which makes all the quirkiness rather tone deaf. Making Penny pregnant only adds to that dichotomy. Then enters Maisie Williams who is determined to test out her accent work. She’s not the only one. It quickly becomes a rolling mess of incongruous parts as Henry works through the stages of grief. If the movie could strip away some of the more annoying parts, the two leads could work as a heart warming duo although they can get boring. BTW, that boat ain’t making it.
Worth seeing and I think its only a few years away from Sudeikis really breaking out and getting an Oscar nomination.
“Most stories ain’t true, and usually don’t start where you’d expect.” Henry (Sudeikis) is a boring husband who does everything by the book every though his wife tries to change him. After a tragic accident takes her like Henry is lost and has no idea what to do. When he meets the girl (Williams) that his wife was talking about he decides to help her complete her dream, and hopefully find himself in the process. This is a very good movie that really shows how heartfelt Sudeikis can be. There are very few movies that have come out recently that show true heart and how good people can truly be. This is one of them. The movie itself is, although very predictable and generic, good and very much worth seeing. After watching weeks and weeks of depressing movies like Manchester By The Sea, Nocturnal Animals and Moonlight this one seems like a much needed break. Although this is also very sad in some parts this one seemed to have what the others didn’t hope. Overall, worth seeing and I think its only a few years away from Sudeikis really breaking out and getting an Oscar nomination. I give this a high B.
