Tribeca Film Review: ‘The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’

16 April 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sound the quirky-whimsical-uplift alarm, as “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” delivers towering tidal waves of idiosyncratic mush. Maudlin flashbacks, contrived twists, transparent themes and a soppy score all slosh about Bill Purple’s drama, which concerns a grieving widower and a wayward female teenager who overcome their kindred abandonment issues to build a raft out of trash on which the girl plans to sail across the Atlantic Ocean to the Azores islands. Its every gesture phonier than the last, the Tribeca-launched film appears destined for a watery theatrical grave.

Stuffy architect Henry (Jason Sudeikis) has his life upended when, on the eve of completing a big New Orleans waterfront-restoration deal with boss Wendell (Paul Reiser), he’s informed that his pregnant wife Penny (Jessica Biel) — a woman prone to cutie-pie nuttiness like making her husband wear purple sneakers to his important meeting — has perished in a car crash. »
