Things Change is like the careful telling of a sly and spirited joke. Everything builds slowly, and the telling is as important as the punch line.
clever, funny and thoughtful
A gangster fable about keeping one's word.
David Mamet-Shel Silverstein collaboration is funny, touching and tense.
It's a film that comes with a perfect shoeshine and smile underneath its ludicrous and cynical premise.
Nine years after Hal Ashby's quixotic 1979 tale of mistaken identity, Being There (with Peter Sellers as the humble gardener), Mamet followed with his take on the same subject, throwing in the Mob and its code of honor (!!!) for comic spin. Joe Mantagna is the family flunky chosen with cred enough to babysit a shoeshine boy and he's credible if underwritten. Ameche, though, is the whole film, carrying the whole piece. I thought he understood it better than Mamet pretended to ...
From the moment you watch Don Ameche's face, you instantly know this will be a humble, honest and heartwarming story. David Mamet changed his register here, in his second film.
A sweet comedy with crystalline acting, writing and direction.
It's got that Mamet touch!
