It is a laborious, sentimental drama featuring a self-parodic performance from Drew Barrymore, based on a TV news event that briefly gripped the US in 1988.
I read your review; what is it that bored you, exactly?
Was the movie well made,... the actors carrying the story, ...the dialogue cohesive,...the directors work done well, ...the cinematography up to snuff, ...set design? What? It was boring because everything "Whale" or everything "Drew Barrymore" is boring?
Substance please, that's all we as readers ask for.

What "briefly gripped" you, might have been a matter of life and death for someone else. I can see critics dislike simplicity and cohesion, especially in stories which cannot be intellectually over-masturbated over and over again. You know, good sir, some of us are still humans and some of us can see the point in sentiment and emotion. Time to go outside?
