Critic Reviews for Waltzing Anna
Excruciating as it is well meaning, Doug Bollinger's Waltzing Anna is a vanity production that turns serious issues about the aging into a schmaltzy dramatic comedy.
Given the dismal reception that greeted their last comedy, Mail Order Bride, you'd think filmmakers Doug Bollinger and Robert Capelli Jr. would have considered alternate career choices.
The filmmakers care; the actors try; the closing dedication is heartfelt and sweet. The movie, sadly, is an IV drip of artery-clogging Lifetime movie-of-the-week goo.
Cowriters Bollinger and Capelli may have sincere intentions, but they're too immature and unpolished to pull off what they're attempting.
If this were a well-made film with particularly astounding acting, it might be easier to overlook the predictability of the plot. The script, unfortunately, is actually the least of Waltzing Anna's problems.
Audience Reviews for Waltzing Anna
If you can get past the way this movie looks (1980's quality) and get to the heart warming story than you can enjoy it.
Liked this movie and thought it was very sweet. If you don't like sweet, this is not for you. All actors were well cast and had good chemistry. This is a same old/same old story but well done. Capelli was sort of hot in this film. He would be terrific in a well-made 30s movie remake of any kind. He has the look and the swagger for it.
Well meaning but over sentimental. The acting ranges from decent to poor. Fair screenplay and score. It's okay, but it doesn't stand out in any way.
