The Coen brothers have the original 1955 comedy/crime film starring Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness. This time around, Tom Hanks stars as Goldthwait Higginson Dorr III, Ph.D., a Southern professor who organizes a group of bumbling thieves to rob a riverboat casino named, appropriately enough, the "Bandit Queen". Dorr rents a room from the elderly Mrs. Marva Munson and convinces her to allow his chamber music group to practice in her cellar, from where the robbers plan to tunnel over to the casino. When the crotchety old woman figures out what they are up to, the thieves decide she must be eliminated.....a task wayyyy more difficult than it seems~!
The story of the band Strange Fruit (never heard of them) is that in the seventies at Wisbech Rock Festival, a lightning storm blew out the power whilst the band were playing and this was seen as a signal to call it a day musically and the members of the band went their own way. The film opens 20 years later ......its kind of weak but i did manage to laugh~!
ok....Directed by Thomas Schlamme, this film is about a beat poet named Charlie who is so afraid of commitment,but when he meets Harriet, he finds himself mentally preparing to spend the rest of his life with her, the only road bump is that she mayyyy or may not be a murderer that kills her husbands during their honeymoon ~ !!!!
Really, it is nothing impressive, and I cant stand Mike Myers, but I thought Nancy Travis was quiite cute in this role, but this was mediocre at best. The plot is stale and drags a bit too much for my liking, and gives the audience the stereotypical goofy is she/isn't she? feeling throughout the entire film. The end was a twist, and really only slightly.
ok... there is a message to be had here for sure as it is a touching story of a father eventually connecting with this daughters.. it is about the death of a mother in the military and the way her husband (John Cusack) deals with it. The catch is the way he deals with telling his daughters which is interesting and very different from most films out there about death. I dont want to say anymore since it might ruin what the film is about but it is a good film and not a waste of time,but it is very slow moving and for that reason some people may lose interest half way through.
