don't bother
24 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I haven't seen the legendary "Last Picture Show', to which this is supposed to be a 30-years-later sequel, but it couldn't have been as bad as this. A bunch of not very likable people (except for Bridges' character, who has a charming and weather-beaten kind of savoir faire) wander around aimlessly, seducing each other's spouses (which somehow never seems to get anyone really upset) and mouthing inanities about how miserable they are. After 2 hours of this ennui, it ends abruptly with no kind of closure; everybody just goes to breakfast together. Bridges and Leachman do a good job but they can't rescue the leaden script. About the only thing the film does well is capture the flavor and atmosphere of rural Texas during its economic crunch of the early 80's.
