Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was a touching portrayal of a simple man's life, sort of like Forrest Gump's life. David Morse gives a wonderful performance as George B, a sensitive, caring individual, who would stop at nothing to trust everyone and be happy with just good friends.He comes into some "luck" with money and a house, but it is soon gone, to what degree I will leave for you to find out! He does have some good people he can call friends, but alas, he gets jilted by the woman he loves and "thinks" she loves him. But don't sell George short, he does stand up for what he believes, and truly tries to do good by people!If you are a David Morse fan, I truly recommend this for your collection. You fall in love with his character!"

"David Morse's affecting performance is the main reason to view GEORGE B. George is a lovable sap, who always has a lot of luck on his birthday. This time around he wins some cash in Reno and returns and hooks up with a department store clerk, leisurely performed by Nina Siemaszko. Being the nice guy he is, George doesn't realize she's just out for the money he's won, and when he starts his own cleaning business, she is after that money too. Even though his "friends" warn him, George decides to marry the girl.
The movie is a leisurely character study, and Morse puts his heart into the role. Siemaszko is effectively callous and buoyant, and Grace Zabriskie (Twin Peaks) shrills her way through the thankless role of Nina's opportunistic mother. Brad Garrett in his pre EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND role has a small role as a blustery security guard.
GEORGE B doesn't really have a lot going on, and in the end, it's leisurely style becomes tedious and the ending is ultimately dry and uneventful. Worthwhile for Morse."
