As the one character who grows and doesn't just calcify, Lange brings wily zest to each step in Babs' coming-out party.
The characters are simply postulated, given whole, from the start; there`s no depth or development in the performances; and each scene exists only to make a single plot point.
Apart from a performance of mesmerizing authority and conviction from Quaid in an arena usually littered with more cliches... Hackford's movie has the courage to start where most films about our national passion for sport leave off.
Lange, handicapped by a much too broad choice of Southern accents, does not disappear as easily into her character. She seems to be playing someone beneath her.
It's not exactly nourishing, but then again, its performances are so addictive that you may not even care.
Sprawling across a quarter of a century, Everybody's All-American is an unkempt epic about the life and times of a Louisiana athlete.
Taylor Hackford's film is predictable, syrupy and far too long.
It's over-plotted, yet somehow seems a sparse tale, though Lange's performance, as always, lifts the essentially lightweight material.
Backed by flawless acting from an ensemble cast, Hackford gives us a suave and artful portrait of Quaid as Gavin Grey.
Jessica Lange is right at home as the sturdy woman of the tale; Dennis Quaid is remarkably convincing as the character he plays gets older... and Timothy Hutton brings quiet skill to his third-banana role. But most impressive of all is Carl Lumbly.
By the end of this turgid mess, these talented, trapped actors look ready to run for their lives -- at last a sentiment the audience can share.
Movies don`t come more superficial than Everybody`s All-American.
Great movie with an excellent cast and a sadly tragic ending.
In a similar vein to Raging Bull, this is the story of a egotistical football stars journey from top dog to has been. Not bad, but all the sports movie cliches are still apparent, and Quaid is no Robert DeNiro.
