Critic Reviews for Expecting Mary
No excerpt available.
Despite the calculated setup and quirky characters, the film, like Juno and Bella, brings another pro-birth story to the big screen. May there be many more.
Rulin gives a warm, down-to-earth performance, which counters writer-director Dan Gordon's tendency to blow out the Quirk-O-Meter.
Audience Reviews for Expecting Mary
It's a shame that such a fantastic cast was hung out to dry by director Dan Gordon's unnecessary excess. This could have been something really special but Gordon's insistence on squeezing every last bit of sentimentality from every scene makes the whole film seem disingenuous and contrived.
This movie was absolutely entertaining. I laughed and cried. It's just what a movie suppose to do. It's a charming and beautiful story set in the back drop of a very quirky town and bigger then life characters. Olysa Rulen is wonderful as the young Mary - very real and emotional. Linda Gray blew me away for her performance. Where has she been? She is a great comedic actress and should be recognized during award season. What a powerful performance.
This is an uplifting treasure of a movie. I highly recommend this film to all parents with their kids. The message is profound and told by a legendary quirky cast of characters. They just don't make movies like this any more. I didn't know what to "expect"...but Expecting Mary is a hit. Go see this film.
