Alice's Restaurant Reviews
Personally, I loved it. It took me a while to realize it, though. When I did, I was surprised. But I realized it was such a delight to watch Arlo Guthrie in this film. There's just something special about him, that makes him so engaging to watch; whether he is saying a whole lot, or not much at all. The "garbage" scene and the scene where he goes through the drafting process (and ultimately avoids it- thank goodness) is just priceless! It almost makes the movie. But the rest of it was very enjoyable as well.
I left this film feeling strangely happy. That was last night, and I still feel happy today. :)
