Interesting, if at least for young stars
18 June 2001 | by (minnesota) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of Sigourney Weaver, I have been since the 4th grade when I saw Alien. I've seen all her movies and own them all too, on VHS and all available DVD formats. Well, Madman is about what I expected. It's not much to watch and Sigourney's part is not all that big. None of the plot seems to fit and I have no idea what was going on, but Weaver looks great. This was right after Annie Hall and right before Alien, so I guess she got a chance to get her feet wet. If you like F. Murray Abraham or Sigourney, it'd be the only reason to watch or own.
