Movie Info

Set in the 1970s, Mighty Fine is the story of Joe Fine, a charismatic, high-spirited man, who relocates his family-wife Stella, daughters Nathalie and Maddie - from Brooklyn to New Orleans, in search of a better life. Joe's devotion to his family knows no bounds, and he seeks to provide them with the ultimate in the good life, from a palatial home to a steady string of extravagant gifts. Unfortunately, Joe's spending spree is wildly out of touch with reality, as his apparel business is teetering

A well-meaning but unstable hand at the tiller, and a propensity for charting plot points, rather than a clear narrative destination.

If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef "Mighty Fine" has some quiet charms.

"Mighty Fine," unfortunately, isn't.

Mighty Fine is an incisive portrait of an insecure, manic-depressive tyrant that Mr. Palminteri makes entirely believable.

Too many directions can be as much of a liability for a movie as too few, and "Mighty Fine" heads in all of them.

Director Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld wraps so much narrative string around this slight ball it unravels messily, despite nice work from the reliable Palminteri.

A somewhat drab and unimaginative telling further dents this dull melodrama of already rather limited psychological insights, and pat conclusions and catharses.

We're left with something akin to a Lifetime movie, as there are a number of interesting possibilities, which could have added complexity and depth to the film, that are never fleshed out.

Mighty bad.

Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld's film seems oddly anemic when it deals with anyone but Chazz Palminteri's Joe.

A semi-autobiographical story of a man's over-reaching, which leads him to consider violent options in dealing with himself and his family.
