Critic Reviews for Crazy Like a Fox
Writer-director Richard Squires sets us up for a feisty farce with a touch of the florid, with "crazy" Nat and the locals finding clever ways to foil the folks with the bulldozers. But Squires doesn't deliver.
What is supposed to be a heartwarming comedy more closely emerges as derivative Capra-corn of the most obvious kind.
Roger Rees abandons dignity though not his native English accent to play Nat Banks, the proud but impoverished owner of a decrepit Virginia farm.
Winning performances by Roger Rees and Mary McDonnell, as well as colorful Virginia locations, lift Crazy Like a Fox slightly above the TV-caliber script by its director, regional theater director Richard Squires.
The movie's take on Southern-versus-Northern values could hardly be more stacked or slanted...
Crazy Like a Fox is sure-fire stuff, guaranteed to generate good will and do no perceivable harm.
