Movie Reviews

Hoseman | Maryland | 10/01/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I'd have to agree with the other viewer that I'm shocked as well this film was released on DVD. At least the price is in check with the quality, although in spite of this, I still don't it's worth it. I can't understand why a title such as this would be brought to DVD, when so many other quality movies have yet to be released on DVD. And speaking of quality, that's the biggest problem with this movie - it looks like it was recorded from a tv with 'rabbit ears' tuned to a distant station. Picture quality - grainy. I do give it 2 stars though (instead of one), because it's based on a true story, and John Lithgow does a fine acting job."
Not totally horrible...

"I got this DVD at the Dollar Tree for $1 and so went in not expecting much from it. I was pleasantly suprised by it being better than I expected it to be... I like Jodie Foster, which is the reason I bought it and watched it. I think she did a good job for what she had to work with, which was a pretty dull script. The costuming and sets were all pretty top notch, as was most of the acting. John Lithgow, who played her husband, did a good job, in that he gave me the creeps. There was pretty good chemistry between she and her brother in law, making you believe they could be 'in love'. However, I only give it three stars because the editing was not so good, it jumped around too much and didn't explain very well... I am happy I've watched it, but I wouldn't pay more for it than I did."
