The filmmaker got the raspberries he deserved for trying to outdo Cassavetes's somewhat charming throwaway pic without offering any improvements.

Audience Reviews for Gloria


A mere shadow of the wonderfully gritty original minus all the aforementioned grit. Stone is certainly no Gena Rowlands. Seek out the original and skip this.

★★ (out of four)

Remake of the 1980 John Cassavetes directed film in which the great Gena Rowlands received an Oscar nomination. This remake loses much of the suspense and drama of the original. Plus Sharon Stone in the lead adds a shallow glamour to the role.

Gloria lives in New York City. When her next door neighbors are murdered by an apparent mob hit. Gloria takes custody of the murdered couple's son as they go on the run from the mafia.

The film shows that it takes much more tha just a decent idea to produce a good film. Watch Gena Rowlands version instead.
