Strong supporting actors ... give performances that serve to make their co-stars or the material look worse.

Begins to feel like a coffeehouse conversation about a movie that's all about meanings and motif rather than substance and characters.

Only the latest feature to suck the air out of Destiny, moviedom's current bogeyman.

The acting surprise in this odd and interesting film is Anne Heche, who suppresses her sexy, acerbic essence and completely slips into the skin of Auggie's pen pal.

Audience Reviews for Auggie Rose

Unusual movie. A story about an man's obsession to right a wrong. Even if what happened wasn't his fault, he feels responsible and steps in, learning how to find himself in someone else's skin.

Goldblum gives an outstanding performance but Heche is so wrong for her part as the love interest that her role brings the whole film down. Despite being a huge Goldblum fan this film lost my attention less than halfway through.

(** 1/2): [img][/img] I'm on the fence for this one. I liked the actors and the story is interesting but overall, the film just did not grab my attention or interest enough for me to recommend. Fans of Goldblum will definitely like it but like I said, I just did not get into it.
