Movie Info

Dutch filmmaker Marleen Gorris directs the romantic comedy Carolina, written by Los Angeles-based screenwriter Katherine Fugate. Julia Stiles stars as Carolina Mirabeau, a young woman who grows up in an eccentric southern family. She and her two sisters -- Georgia (Azura Skye) and Maine (Mika Boorem) -- have been raised by their well-meaning if meddling grandmother (Shirley MacLaine). Carolina's family seems to think that she should marry the novelist Albert (Alessandro Nivola), whom she has known since childhood. However, when she starts dating the well-to-do Heath (Edward Atterton), Albert becomes very jealous. Carolina has to choose which man she wants without letting her grandmother take over.

    This was alright. I love Stiles and MacLaine, so I thought I was going to love this, but it kinda fell flat.

    CAST: Shirley MacLaine, Julia Stiles, Alessandro Nivola, Azura Skye, Daveigh Chase, Jennifer Coolidge, Randy Quaid, John Capodice, Edward Atterton, Alan Thicke, Dwight Armstrong, Lauri Johnson, MIka Boorem DIRECTED BY: Marleen Gorris SUMMARY: In this romantic comedy featuring Shirley MacLaine as a wacky grandma, Southern girl Carolina (Julia Stiles) envisions an entirely different existence for herself, far from the maddening mix that is her family. So, she leaves home for California, where she hopes she'll find some tranquility. But her efforts are soon wasted when she finds herself torn between two men. MY THOUGHTS: "If not for Shirley MacLaine and the crazy family, this movie would have been quite boring. Her performance and the mix of all the odd but wonderful characters is what kept this movie afloat for me. It was quite funny when they all got around each other. But all in all just OK for me."

    Average chick flick that sinks to a little below average with an ending that feels tacked on to make the audience happy.
