The Weather Man Reviews

March 7, 2011
The Weather Man is more of a parable than a story; it just goes on and on and on, and the only point is to endure. It's not very uplifting, but sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's sad; sometimes hopeful, and sometimes melancholy. But that's life.

Intended as director Gore Verbinski's palate cleanser before back-to-back "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels, this is an apprehensive cringe comedy of male malaise. It's also Verbinski's best to date, a small-scale challenge he should attempt more often.

A look at the commonest fear nipping at the heart of Middle America. Not the war in Iraq, nor terrorism, but the breakdown of the family unit and how - and if - people can cope with it.

Cage is superb in the lead, brilliantly conveying David's confusion with some well chosen blankly bewildered looks.

It may be rather mopey and languid, but this intensely introspective comedy has the ability to get under our skin.

A richly rewarding work that ought to be getting a fairer shake than it has.

Though difficult to classify, "The Weather Man" provides enough emotional payback to make it worth checking out.

Does a movie need a plot to move it along? Not necessarily. Look at "Lost in Translation," for example. And "The Weather Man."

The most supremely odd American film of the year.

[Verbinski] and Steven Conrad hold their ground, sticking to their conviction that Dave's story should play as a belated-coming-of-age movie.
October 31, 2005
A beautiful, cynical, and odd film about the pursuit of the American dream. Verbinski proves his chops as versatile director with this effort.
