Critic Reviews for The Wool Cap
Macy, who never says a word, is terrific, and the remake is better than the 1962 original, Gigot, in which an oversize Jackie Gleason tried to be Charlie Chaplin by starring in a story, set in Paris, that he had written for himself.
Audience Reviews for The Wool Cap
Very nice movie with a great actor, William H. Macy. There is just something about that guy that makes movies really good. Great, warm hearted ending.
A very sweet made for TV film, lifted above the average by William H Macy as the grump with a heart.
Many years ago Charlie Chaplin made a delightful film entitled The Kid in which an impoverished, kind hearted man befriends a little child and the two of them become very close. Some years later Jackie Gleason, inspired by The Kid, made a delightful film entitled Gigot in which an impoverished, kind hearted man befriends a little child and the two of them become very close. In 2004 William H. Macy, inspired by Gigot, made a delightful made-for-TV movie about an impoverished, kind hearted man who befriends a young girl and the two of them become very close. This one starts a little slow but it quickly gains momentum, thanks to Macy, the always hilarious Don Rickles, and a surprisingly real performance from Catherine O'Hara.
