A farce with no subtlety
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched half of Tattle Tale before giving up on it. It tries to be funny in a sophomoric manner, but falls flat. Perhaps the producers should have included a laugh track, for this show resembles an old TV sitcom. C. Thomas Howell plays an Bernard Sprat, an actor falsely maligned by his ex-wife played by Ally Sheedy. The plot revolves around Spratt's attempt to get revenge and restore his reputation (such as it is). Howell's character is such a bumbling idiot, however, that it is difficult for a sophisticated audience to sympathize with his troubles. This movie is suitable for children of middle school age and adults with similar interests.
