Homecoming review
8 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be excellent. I know mark jean has done little that I would call quality but I found the cast capable. Bancroft is magnificent as Abby and Kimberlee Petersen held her own in those all-important wordless moments. The premise is shaky but this movie is fun and not in a Garbage Pail Kids way. It is refreshing to see representations of children that are not part of the Hollywood cookie-cutter kid characters. Hanna Hall says only a few lines, but they are gems, just like in real life, the quiet folks always say so much more than the talkers. William Greenblatt and O'Brien do very well also. I can only assume that Bonnie Bedelia and Anne Bancroft were worth their collective weight in gold with all these green kids. There efforts paid off in my opinion. I hope you enjoy.
