There's a certain flabbiness in its philosophy. And yet, I reacted very favorably to some scenes in the film, and I think Hoffman's two long scenes with Barbara Harris are among the best cinema I've seen in some time.
The movie says the craziness is not a laughing matter, then doesn't know what to do about it.
Though the acting by Hoffman and especially Barbara Harris (in Oscar nominated turn) is good, Ulu Grosbard's satire seldom finds the right tone.
Dusty, all of 33 when this was made, plays a middle age composer with a hideous curly perm going through a crisis of identity. Barbara Harris shows up late in the film and walks right off with it in a beautifully performed monologue. VERY much a product of its time.
There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
