At its best, it sports a forgiving humanism - none of these people are all that bad, they're just wounded and needy and uncertain.
Oh God! Who told David Schwimmer he could act???
Nice little rip-off of 'The Graduate.' Actually holds up on its own.
Not as bad as the title might suggest, maybe a bit too dark a comedy for most audiences. However, it still has some comedic blank spots.
Cast: David Schwimmer, Gwyneth Paltrow, Carol Kane, Toni Collette, Michael Rapaport, Barbara Hershey, Bitty Schram
Director: Matt Reeves
Summary: When Ruth Abernathy (Barbara Hershey) mistakes Tom Thompson (David Schwimmer) for someone else, Thompson ends up becoming a pallbearer at the funeral of her son -- a former high school classmate he doesn't even remember. Despite the fact that he's unemployed and living with his parents, Thompson convinces his old crush (Gwyneth Paltrow) to go out with him. Meanwhile, a sexual relationship develops between Thompson and Mrs. Abernathy.
My Thoughts: "It's a mix of a comedy and a drama. David Schwimmer plays Tom Thompson, who is a push over. He feels obligated to do anything for anyone when he doesn't want to. But to spare their feelings, he does it anyway. His love interest Julie, is the same way. The story is interesting and you get involved with the characters, especially David's. You watch him kinda grow up in the film. He is 25, jobless, and living at home with his mother and sleeping in bunk beds. By the end of the film you feel like he has grown and matured into an adult. Great job by Matt Reeves. It's a movie worth seeing at least once."
The story is pretty limited and doesn't really go anywhere.
A hilarious film.
Case of mistaken identity.
