Critics Consensus

Screenwriter Vince Gilligan's mordant sense of humor strikes a discordant note in Home Fries, a romantic caper full of empty calories.

  • Sep 11, 2020
    Quirky romcom about a small-town woman (Drew Barrymore) who falls for a helicopter pilot, a pilot whose family just so happens to want to kill the woman. Catherine O'Hara as the mother of the family subversively steals the film and the attention - excepting Barrymore's curiously distracting Shirley Temple hairstyle - as a particularly delicious if slimy piece of work, while Luke Wilson turns in another competent role as a helpless guy caught in larger machinations than he can handle (perhaps his forte and his niche). A decent soundtrack fills the background until the couple learns what we knew from their first meeting. Perhaps an over-the-top story, but one that is certainly not typical of the genre thereby setting it apart.

    The description of the movie on here isn't at all what I remember of it, but maybe I should see it again. I remember a romantic comedy involving a pregnant Drew Barrymore. I really liked it too, it was funny enough, and dramatic enough to make a good rom-com.

    I've always disliked Shelly Duvall. I think Kubrick worked her over so effectively for her pathetic, tightly wound role in The Shining, that I can't see her without identifying her with that character.
