I have watched this movie several times over the years. I am actually surprised that it did so poorly. It is a fun movie. The kid starts out a bit pretentious, but normalizes as the film moves along. Its entertaining, and has a bit of a message. I take the message as this, when people have the opportunity to gain a larger, or better perspective of their world, and society, it can create in us the desire to be better people. Remember, its a movie, there are going to be times where things are a bit more outlandish, because its first duty is to entertain us.
Old story line but just a bit of a fun movie.
Dutch is a great and entertaining Thanksgiving classic. Can't believe Rotten Tomatoes' poor rating.
A Thanksgiving classic. Must see!
I thought it was hilarious! My mom and I haven't laughed this much watching a movie. Of course it had its serious moments but Ed O'Neil is funny as can be. Ethan Embry played a little shit perfectly. Awesome movie.
One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I can't believe it has such a low score on this silly website.
This is one of me and my families cruch movies in the holidays.... When i read official reviews and other viewers reviews i sometime ask what movie were they watching
Ed O'Neil is awesome in this and the plot is different IMO ....more importantly in 91 this was over the top for a kid to act like this .....27 years later it is not which is sad. This movie doesn't work in this day in age cause kids are horrible and it would play more like a reality show.
Once again this is on the level of Christmas story in my house a must watch every year and i sneak in a summer watch just for the laughs
"Planes, Trains and Automobiles", except nothing funny happens and you hate everyone.
Seriously this movie has so many laugh out loud moments. Doyle's character is great!
Ed O Neil stars in the John Hughes written comedy Dutch. Ed O Neil is Dutch Dooley, a working-class man that is dating a woman who used to be with a multi-millionaire. Because of this, the son Doyle (Ethan Embry) is a spoiled rich kid that feels entitles and lashes out at all of those who oppose him. His wealthy dad (Christopher MacDonald) does not make things better as he almost seems to encourage this type of activity. Dutch makes a deal with the mother (JoBeth Williams) that he will go across America and bring him home for the holidays.
Dutch makes an effort to bond with the boy, only to find that he is constantly challenging him for control. The two are at a battle of wits, as Dutch is trying to bond with the boy who hates him for being a middle class individual who is not a millionaire like his father. The movie then transitions to a planes, trains and automobiles like film as they go through various plans to try and get home. This includes hitchhiking, being robbed by call girls, and being passed for homeless grifters.
Dutch is a good enough comedy for its time. It is not as classic as some of John Hughes other films, but stands on its own in some regards. Like most of Hughes films, he is able to create a scene that truly gives that makes the movie endearing. This occurs when Dutch and Doyle are at a homeless shelter, and they experience the side of lives of those who truly need help. They come to realize that there is more to life than their petty squabbles. Dutch does not deliver in some of the comedic level or have as many good lines as Home Alone, Planes Trains and Automobiles and other comedies, but it is worth watching for anyone who is a fan of Ed O Neil or John Hughes films.
