Movie Reviews

Terrific performances.

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Maybe you've forgotten that Robert DeNiro was once considered America's best actor. Maybe his constant involvement these days in lousy projects (Showtime, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Hide and Seek, et al) has diminished his reputation? Well, Stanley & Iris is a terrific place to go to see him at his guarded, emotionally tight best.
This is a middle-aged love story, about two people whose lives have been difficult, and who need each other more than they know.
While the direction and story are somewhat weak, the characters of Stanley and Iris and DeNiro and Fonda's performances make the film.
Here you will find excellent acting, genuine vulnerability and and angle of repose and beauty."
A very satisfying movie

"I love this movie. In a world where movies consist mostly of horny school kids and people who only believe in multiple sex partners and drive by shootings, this movie is such a refreshing change. It concentrates on normal people just trying to make lives for themselves. This is a movie that probably most of middle America can relate to on some level. Jane Fonda is beautiful, and Robert DeNiro is so sweet and endearing. Yeah, it's a chick got a problem with that?"
A well-acted love story about real people

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have to admit I have a thing for Jane Fonda and her blue eyes and endless different facial expressions. Her acting in this movie was no disappointment. I'm not the world's biggest fan of Robert DeNiro like the rest of the world but his acting was also very good. I actually related to both characters. I can forgive some weaknesses in script and editing in a movie like this. I thoroughly enjoyed it as a break from the movies about rich, extroardinary people doing unbelievable things. What a nice concept that two shy, no-longer-twenty-something ordinary people can help each other conquer their fears and weaknesses in an honest relationship. While most movies portray the guy getting the girl with relative ease, Stanley has to struggle."
