I wish I could forget
2 February 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I don't want to remember "When You Remember Me," but I'm sure it will be etched into my mind for eternity. I understand that Fred Savage wasn't considered the greatest actor of the 20th century, but holy cow! A little more research and practice wouldn't have hurt.

I've heard that people work just as hard on bad movies as they do on good ones, but I wonder if the cast and crew knew they were working on a poorly done rip-off of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." If everybody realizes they are making something that isn't that good, maybe they don't really work "just as hard."

I'm not saying that everyone in the cast was terrible. People such as Kevin Spacey are almost always good and Ellen Burstyn did a great "Nurse Ratched" impression.
