Audience Reviews for The Spitfire Grill

  • Sep 30, 2009
    Saw this years ago, remember thinking it was okay, but pretty predictable and overall nothing impressive considering actors like Ellen Burstyn and Marcia Gay Harden were in this film. Can't say I remember much of the movie, other than the fact that it's a character study about an ex-convict trying to start over. If you want a great movie with a similar plot and a much better ending, "Sling Blade" is your safer bet.

    A beautiful movie. The characters are memorable. I wish they made movies like this more often.
