Critic Reviews for Of Mice and Men
Well-mounted and very traditional, Of Mice and Men honorably serves John Steinbeck's classic story of two Depression-era drifters without bringing anything new to it.
It's hard ... to believe Malkovich's shamble and gape, a simian variant on Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man.
Of Mice and Men is a mournful, distantly heard lament for the loss of American innocence.
The great pleasure of this movie is in what performers Sinise and John Malkovich, Ray Walton and others do with it; what director Sinise does with it; and, perhaps most important, what screenwriter Horton Foote does with it.
Happily, director/star/co-producer Gary Sinise has approached it not with the awe of an English professor, but with the practical eye of a craftsman: Here are solid characters, a taut and emotional story, a beginning, a middle and a wrenching end.
Audience Reviews for Of Mice and Men
A decent adaptation that flunks due to a miscast John Malkovich in an over-the-top, cartoonish performance, as he looks too smart and cynical for the role and makes Lennie seem irritating and seriously retarded, much more than in the original story.
Good adaptation but I definitely prefer the book.
A captivating film about the value of friendship during even the harshest of times. Inspired performances from both Gary Sinise and John Malkovich aid in making this adaptation an instant-classic.
