Comes off less like a feature film than a failed sitcom pilot.

Audience Reviews for Welcome to Mooseport


No work of art but a pleasant silly comedy which is unfortunately damaged by a very dull Ray Romano in one of the leads. Sadly this seems to be the film Hackman chose to close out his career.

This movie has a great and seemingly original premise, but I think that was all Gene Hackman found out about it before signing on... Ray Romano is his usual boring self, but Hackman is complemented by unsung TV vets Maura Tierney and a surprisingly good Fred Savage, as well as the usual Marcia Gay Harden. The script was okay, the plot was fine, but the filming was so formulaic that this one is really a chore to sit all the way through.

Super Reviewer

It is a pretty good movie. Ray Romano is great, as usual. The concept was neat. A good comedy.
