Movie Reviews

Heart-warming Hollywood
Jason Vance | Hollywood, CA | 09/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Originally shot as a musical with songs by Sinead O'Connor and Prince, this remarkable pic tested so badly in pre-release that they excised ALL the songs and dance numbers. You'd never miss em'. Nick Nolte is an earnest actor struggling to make it in L.A. when his ex-wife drops the bombshell that their five year-old daughter (who Nolte barely knows) will now be coming to live with him. You thought that kid from "The Sixth Sense" was good? Wait til' you see THIS little spitfire! Julie Kavner is amazing as the head of a test-screening/marketing company, who spews truth (and uncanny insights) like bullets from an AK-47. The real draw here though, is the rocky and tender relationship that develops between Nolte and his young daughter, against the backdrop of a gutless and brainless movie business."
Nolte is a good actor
John R. Bridell | Minneapolis, MN USA | 04/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'LL DO ANYTHING showed me that Nolte is a good actor. As soon as I realized he was doing a dandy job acting his role--luckless actor--the movie carried on quite well without my analysis. Nolte has been swirling in the Hollywood maelstrom. His life has been designed to believe that acting is the most important matter in the world. Then,as often they do, the vissicitudes of life dump his 5 year old, hard-to-handle, daughter into the scenery. She is a precocious stick of dynamite. The story takes a few swipes at the cheapside of Hollywood. Otherwise, it is no expose. It is full of fun and healthy laughter."
Surprisingly wonderful
John R. Bridell | 03/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is full of intelligent spoken truths, an incredibly witty movie. Julie Kavner has some of the best lines, and some will make you laugh out loud, especially when directed at Brooks' egomaniacal character.If you have ever known ineffective parents, people in show-biz, writers, actors, stage-moms, or just the kind of poseurs that litter that L.A. scene, you will connect with this movie."
I Want My Yellow Dress!
80's Girl | Cali | 11/04/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know why some people dislike this movie but I just love it. My Mom & I have been watching this movie since it came out on VHS. It has great scenes and the little girl is so adorable and bratty all at the same time. If you haven't seen this movie rent it and give it a chance."
