Movie Reviews

RE: Waste of Time.
J. Miller | Worcester, MA USA | 09/22/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Unfortunately Town & Country was a total waste of time and good talent. Everything about this movie was painfully bad, from the writing to the directing to the uninspired acting of a tremendously talented cast. The movie just never took off and lacked any spark of intelligence or energy. Do not waste your time or money."
All Star Cast Couldn't Save the Script, and Naturally

""Inconsistent" is the keyword of "Town and Country." I mean, the keyword of how to explain the failure of the film. Maybe I'm mistaken, but when I watched it in theater in Japan, the touch of photography slightly changes in the last 30 minutes. At first, the colors and the light of the film are soft, but near the ending they get suddenly sharper and things look more distinct. And maybe I'm mistaken again, but the opening credit has it "Joshua Hartnett" while in the ending credit "Josh Hartnett," the way he is usually known now.What I want to say is, as you know, "Town and Country" has experienced several re-writes because of negative response from the viewers at the screen test. But to re-write or re-shoot a film is not unusual these days -- "Fatal Attration" is one good example -- but in this case, the bad reaction from the audience could have been predicted with ease. Check out the story. The hero, who suddenly turns a philanderer when his should be well mature, is played by none other than Warren Beatty (come on!); he has an affiar with a beautiful cellist (sexy Nastassja Kinski) and his friend's wife (ever gorgeous Goldie Hawn); and then, he goes on to have another one (apparently) with Andie MacDowell and Jenna Elfman. He regrets (why not?) and goes back to his wife Diane Keaton, and asks to be forgiven, and ... she forgives!! Okay, this is an ultimate fantasy for men, I understand, but no one, male or female, buys that idea. So, Buck Henry was called as script-doctor, but even his talent could do nothing. As a result, sometimes the film looks like a romance; sometimes a farce (and not a bad one when Gary Shandling is allowed to do his stuff): sometimes very serious and ... forget it. By now, you got my point. The film is always apologetic for what it is based on. Whoever gave this impossible script a green light?At the climax ceremony scene, many co-stars hurriedly show up one by one -- Elfman, MacDowell, Kinski, and Heston -- but so hurriedly go away that this final showdown, which could be used as a good slapstick farce, vanishes without a trace. It is as if they got other commitments. Maybe they did. It looks as if they are running away, and if so, it's a wise decision."
Not Worth It

"Do not waste your time. In spite of the cast, this movie is a whopping dud. Meandering and unfulfiling. A shame. I'd give it zero stars, but the system won't let me."
Should get zero if they allowed it!

"I doubt I will see a worse movie this year or next. After three years of rewrites, reshoots and re-edits, Warren Beatty's latest vehicle is released and falls mightily flat with a huge crash. All the post-production hoopla did nothing but destroy the film's chances of ever finding any artistic success or adding any glimmer to the careers of those involved. Beatty and Garry Shandling are idiot actors in idiotic roles as two men who can't stop cheating on their wives. Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton hardly fare any better as the women who are being betrayed by these philandering gits (this is a very far cry from The First Wives Club). All the other talented performers, from Jenna Elfman to Andie MacDowell to Joshua Hartnett, are wasted in thankless roles that for the most part don't even make any sense. The film's script has absolutely no humour beyond the odd moment, and most of its scenes end without ever having gone anywhere. Even Beatty can't avoid the fact that he is just too old to be in something so ridiculous; with no character strength written in, how are we supposed to believe that all these gorgeous women a third his age would fall for this twelve hundred year-old goofball? The enjoyment level here is equal to a non-novocaine-assisted drilling in a back-alley dentist's chair. Unbelievable that is written by the man who wrote To Die For and co-wrote Heaven Can Wait with Beatty."
