The movie manages to transcend the material -- mostly because of Williams and his perpetually Morkian innocence -- and become a satisfying, occasionally maudlin tale of belonging, understanding the passage of time and living for the moment.
Someone deserves a timeout for letting this mawkish misfire get to the screen.
Williams at his versatile best
Robin Williams is a big kid. Wow, what a stretch.
High ickiness quotient in this weird dramedy
Coppola, of course, was abducted by aliens and replaced with a pod person in the middle of filming Godfather III.
It seems unlikely that a Francis Ford Coppola movie starring the outrageous, hyperkinetic Robin Williams could be bland, but Jack is.
Terrible comedy. Depressing (he's basically going to die by 20) and the jokes are obvious. Williams is great and understated, but wasted in this script.
Coppola was obviously having an off day with this manipulative and meaningless dribble of a dramedy. Robin Williams should consider omitting Jack from his film resume'.
Celebrates the unique qualities which make special people shooting stars.
Jack is one of Francis Ford Coppola's most mediocre outings as a director. The film had plenty of good potential of being a great film, but it falls flat and just ends up being mediocre. I thought the film started off well, but it just fell apart as the story progressed. The film could have been very good, but there's something missing to really make this standout. I felt that Robin Williams wasn't that great here, and he has made much better. Considering that such a great director as Francis Ford Coppola directed this, you'd expect a great film. But unfortunately this is among his worst films. Considering that he made The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, it's hard to imagine that Jack is a dud, but it is. Towards the ending, you simply can't wait for the film to end, and it just isn't memorable enough like so many other films. This film simply didn't deliver anything great; in the end it was boring, poorly crafted and overall mediocre. I didn't like this film, and I felt that due to its idea, it could have been so much better than what it turned out to be. Jack is not a film worth seeing, and like I've said, Coppola has done far better than this. This is not a film worth remembering and I think this on its own is a film that is underdeveloped and poorly constructed for dramedy. The film lacks anything great and it lacks any real moments where you end up caring for the characters. I just feel that this tried too hard delivering something sentimental, and ultimately failed.
Not the worst movie that I ever see, but the worst movie that Coppola could direct. Jack is the real end of the great filmmaker that made The Godfather. Rotten.
This movie has such a strange, unreal, outrageous premise, I can't decide whether it's horrible or incredibly interesting. Overall, it's just okay, I guess. Sort of another excuse for a grown man to act like a kid, I guess, and Williams knows how to do that.
Story about how everyone is the same and no different.
