Movie Info

A man wages a one-man war against corrupt real-estate developers in this independent comedy drama. Nat Banks (Roger Rees) is a genially eccentric gentleman farmer who minds a Virginia estate that has belonged to his family for generations. Nat is not especially good at managing his money and has fallen deep in debt, so when a pair of real-estate men from Washington, D.C., make an offer for the place, Nat agrees under the condition that the house will be maintained as it is and he will be allowed

Writer-director Richard Squires sets us up for a feisty farce with a touch of the florid, with "crazy" Nat and the locals finding clever ways to foil the folks with the bulldozers. But Squires doesn't deliver.

What is supposed to be a heartwarming comedy more closely emerges as derivative Capra-corn of the most obvious kind.

Roger Rees abandons dignity though not his native English accent to play Nat Banks, the proud but impoverished owner of a decrepit Virginia farm.

Winning performances by Roger Rees and Mary McDonnell, as well as colorful Virginia locations, lift Crazy Like a Fox slightly above the TV-caliber script by its director, regional theater director Richard Squires.

The movie's take on Southern-versus-Northern values could hardly be more stacked or slanted...

Crazy Like a Fox is sure-fire stuff, guaranteed to generate good will and do no perceivable harm.

It leans toward the obvious whenever it can, but the overall peaceful yearn of the picture is welcoming, along with its superior, expressive thespian efforts.

The rich characters are more the attraction than the plot. The main character is nor really in the right and that point is more controversial than intended.

Richard Squires' uneven filmmaking debut sets the hounds of progress on the heels of an old-fashioned Southern gentleman in the form of modern-day carpetbaggers.

Writer/director Richard Squires has an interesting story ... but he waters that story down with attempts to make Crazy Like A Fox into a slapstick, wacky comedy

Squires doesn't leave a whole lot to the imagination, uprooting the subtext Phil Morrison's Junebug kept richly underground.
