Movie Reviews

Very Funny; excellent cast
Glenn Laycock | Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada | 09/23/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was a Brian De Palma film that was made as a school project. So you get to see Nancy Allen before she had made any movies; plus pretty much every other character became famous to some extent. And they are all playing comedy perfectly (which is to act like you are not intending to be funny).Really different movie, probably would get an R-Rating these days, much like Animal House. Kirk Douglas, the only "official" star, very unusual role for him and he brings a terrific credibility to the film. Very, very nicely done picture. Extremely funny."

"Brian De Palma graduated with an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College. A decade later, he returned to Sarah Lawrence to teach filmmaking. "Home Movies" is the final product. This movie is not really De Palma's film, as it was mostly made by his students at Sarah Lawrence. It's interesting as a student project, but it's very low-budget and doesn't add up to much. The movie was shot on location at the Sarah Lawrence College campus. All in all, this movie is for fans who want to see everything Brian De Palma has done or for people who want to see an interesting college filmmaking project or for people who would like to see the Sarah Lawrence College campus on film. (Actually, you don't even get to see much of the campus since the movie basically uses only a couple of buildings.) Anyhow, most people will probably be disappointed. HOME MOVIES easily ranks as De Palma's most minor film."
A Funny DePalma Film

"If your a fan of Nancy Allen or Brian DePalma, or Keith Gordon you should enjoy this one. It's not the best of Brian DePalma's work, but I fell in love with the humour.This is deminstated in numerous scenes with Nancy Allen. I loves the two scenes when 1. Her hand puppet rabbit comes alive-who didn't laugh at the bit''I'm rabbit and this is toots with the heavenly body, catch us at the pussycat,catch us at the pussycat.2. After she's been out eating hamburgers with Keith Gordons character, her boyfriend gets the scent of something he hasn't smelt in a long time ie( he's only eating health food- he puts her through a series of tests to see if she's worthy of being with him). It's worth a look."

"Has some great moments; some really great comic acting. A little film that was, alas, overlooked by the box office."
