Critic Reviews for With Honors
This movie is predictable from scene one, though that wouldn't be a problem if it had a good script, good performances and solid direction. But it doesn't.
A politically correct, vastly sentimental and ultimately insincere saga of the friendship between a kind homeless man, played by Joe Pesci, and a guilt-ridden Harvard student, played byBrendan Frazer.
Obviously inspired by the success of Scent of a Woman, this one could have been called Scent of a Bum.
Well meaning drama but oversimplifies a lot and plays the death card too easily.
Audience Reviews for With Honors
A simplistic movie - a homeless bum teaches Harvard students what is important in life, but everything is too easy in this movie.
A great drama, I saw this for a class, which usually makes you dislike a movie, but this one was fantastic. The story is based on a real story, and the actors are good, and it's just so cool. If you like dramas, you have to see it.
I liked this one. The cast was really good and it gave Pesci a chance to shine while not being a goofball or a gangster. The rest of the cast was really good and the story moved along really well.
