Decent Way to Pass The Time
25 February 2005 | by (Longmeadow, MA) – See all my reviews

When searching for a decent way to kill 2 hours, You could do a lot worse (and a lot better)than No Small Affair. Jon Cryer, in a likable performance, plays a teenager who, for some reason, feels the need to stalk a lovely woman he accidentally photographs. Demi Moore gives the best performance in the movie as the object of Jon Cryer's affection (so good, it almost makes for Demi Moore appearing in Blame it on Rio, which I consider to be the worst film of 1984). Jeffery Tambor does a good job playing Jon Cryer's benevolent uncle (he usually plays the character I just can't stand). What I could not understand is how adult characters treat Jon Cryer as some kind of freak because he likes photography. His teacher sees him taking pictures and acts like he caught the kid cheating. His parents insist that photography makes the kind not normal. The police even arrest him for taking photos in a strip club. It's weird that the movie starts out with consideration for Jon Cryer's school career and then seems to forget he even has school as the movie then puts its focus on his romance with Demi Moore. Yet these are minor changes, as the only major problem with the movie is Jon Cryer's mother: one of the most irritating, most frustratingly unlikable characters I've ever met.
