Funny movie.
9 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film won't appeal to three types:

1) those who get a bad '80s hair-band vibe from any film that hasn't just been released because their frame of reference is erroneous,

2) those who absolutely must feel that they have conceived every witticism and crafted every irony that exists, or else feel threatened by the clear existence of superior talent in the universe and react like a cranky three year old at nap time or

3) those who have attained that rarefied and magical metaphysical status which precludes their doing anything as carnal and popular as watching real movies anymore -- in spite of the fact that they won't shut up about their "love of cinema."

Miracles IS laugh out loud funny. Conti is brilliant. Garr was never better. (I have no idea who directed it, and other than feeling a little bad for failing to look the guy up and give him his props, I would say it doesn't matter. It's not an "oh look at me, I know all the directors" kind of flick.) The situations and set pieces are disarmingly unexpected, delightfully silly and often -- not always, but OFTEN -- wholly hilarious. I won't even venture the opinion, as some have, that the key to life isn't contained in this film. I dunno, Cisco. ...The bit with the priest dismissing the miracle as "no miracle" seemed as profound as anything anyone has had the kahunas to put in a movie in the last 20 years.

Bottom line, only a fool argues with the spasm of laughter. The sniffy, supercilious sorts who keep whining about the script and direction should seek out A Breed Apart, another loss leader currently making the rounds on THIS Network. Miracles will look like Citizen Kane beside it. ...Guaranteed, or the money you spent watching it on free TV back.

Work with it, Sherlock.
