    Tender is the Night adaptation had the same feeling of the novel, too bad the characters were underdeveloped and the film was a little bit too long to be my liking.

    Ponderous, overlong adaptation of Fitzgerald's final published novel. Jones is completely wrong in the lead, at least a decade and a half too old and of the wrong temperament, Robards is a great actor but similarly miscast. Jill St. John looks great but doesn't get under the skin of her character. A botched enterprise that looks beautiful but is empty.

    Couldn't really get through it, but the Wiki entry on it makes me want to read the book...does that count?
