Audience Reviews for Spooner
Very cliched but I found it had a few good moments. Christopher McDonald seems to play the same role in every movie I have seen him in.
I'm surprised I enjoyed this movie as much as I did, especially considering it does not seem to take place on the same plane of reality that I live on. In the real world, a guy as awkward and semi-creepy as Spooner would have driven that girl away right around the second time he showed up in the hotel she was staying at, and she probably wouldn't have let him in. (The fact that Rose is somewhat soft-spoken and possibly is the nicest person on the planet doesn't change this...) I'm speaking from experience, having exhibited Spooner-like behavior in the past as well as being on the receiving end of some. But I like this movie because it is not shrieking in your face like "All About Steve" or sticking labels on everyone like most movies about characters like Spooner do (the fact that the word "Asperger's" was not brought up once was INSANELY joyous for me). Basically, this is a movie about two nice people (one of whom is weird and a bit stalker-y, but he's NICE) who kind of fall in love. It's a total Movie kind of love, and there's about a 2% chance of this actually happening in real life, but their scenes together are so sweet that it's hard for me not to like this movie.
Deeeelightful!!! I am amazed at the lack of interest for this movie. I found it absolutely charming, quirky, and really well done.
