Movie Reviews

Love this flick!

"I saw this movie twice through my On Demand function, I loved it that much! (on two separate PAID occasions!) Parker Posey is apparently the "Queen" of indie films, and even though she gives her usual great performance here, it's Ellen Barkin who steals the show in my opinion, especially since I didn't recognize her at first. Her character cracks me up, so to speak, pun intended. She is absolutely hilarious as the "nurse"/exotic dancer who is living off Parker Posey's and Demi Moore's father, who is played by Rip Torn. Mr. Torn also gives a great turn as the deteriorating parent who is going through dementia. It is a combination of sad and hilarious as the girls deal with their father's condition and argue about their upbringing and who is ultimately currently responsible for his care at any given time. There is supposedly a buried treasure in the backyard; one daughter unquestionably believes and the other has never believed in it. This film is very touching and lightly funny, the performances are excellent, and I truly feel Ms. Barkin deserves an award for her portrayal of the exotic dancer/nurse, although she wasn't in the film very much. Demi Moore is outstanding as the more "together" sister, taking charge, and getting things done. Currently waiting for my own personal copy, this is one film that I won't mind watching over and over and over, which is rare for me."
It was just ok

"Happy Tears is basically the story of two sisters dealing with the deterioration of there dying father. I found this movie to be very moving. Both Demi Moore and Parker Posey give very strong believable performances. This movie also has a solid script. I don't see it winning many awards but it's definately not a bad movie. It seems like something that would have been made especially for the Lifetime network. You will not get bored watching this film. However, There is nothing really new here. This definately falls in the cateogory of Chick Flick. I give this movie ONE ENDEARING THUMBS UP. This little film has a lot of heart. All you ladies might want to check this one out. You guys can suck it up and watch it too. Sometimes you gotta take one for the team. HOLLA"
