Pipe Dream Reviews
I put off watching this one for ages. Have picked it up several times at the video store, (dating back probably to when it actually was on video. haha). Saw it going out as an ex-rental for $1.95, decided what the hell, how bad could it be compared to some of the stuff I have sat through lately?!
It was actually pretty good! Nice little story and very well acted.
While it's a good premise, Walsh's directing and script (co-written by Cynthia Kaplan) are never quite convincing. The industry satire feels a bit soft, and the characters vacillate erratically from sympathetic to unpleasant.
Enter Mary-Louise Parker who plays the writer and helps the plumber direct. You have to see the movie for it to make sense, and see it you should.
[color=black][font=Book Antiqua]I've been watching a lot of cable since it seems to take Netflex a while now before they get more movies to you. Oh well, that's life. Uh? While trying to find something worth watching on television one evening I came upon this movie called; "Pipe Dream". This was a very cute movie. It's not one where you have to think or any thing like that. It's just a fun movie. The cast was good as well as the script. "Pipe Dream" is about this plumber who is going through life a little bored. When one day he goes and visits a buddy on a set of a movie that his buddy is casting. While at lunch the plumber makes this observation when a young actress starts flirting with him. The observation is that the young actress only is flirting with the plumber because she thought that he might have something to do with the movie industry. His casting buddy denies this. After sleeping with one of his neighbors who wrote a script, the plumber decides to steal the script. So, the plumber can set up a fake casting for a movie with the help of his casting friend. The only thing is the neighbor finds out that the plumber had stole the script from her. By that time the whole movie industry is buzzing about this new independent movie being made by supposedly the plumber who hasn't ever set foot on to a movie set in his life. When it's too late to back out they (the plumber, casting guy, and the neighbor) decide to go through and make a movie. That's when all things go wrong. I would definitely suggest this movie. It has something for every one. Even though it's fiction there seems to be a little truth about the movie industry to this. Please see what you think. It's definitely worth the watch.[/font][/color][color=#000033][/color]
