An emotional tornado sends an actress over the rainbow to find herself.
30 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A kooky paranoid actress (Cheryl Pollack), feeling out of place in her life and career, disappears in the midst of filming a $70 million dollar movie, and begins a journey down the bricky road of self rediscovery. On her trail is her therapist/manager (Holland Taylor), who flies between being bubbles and glitter supportive and evil mean wicked and nasty dictatorial. As she winds her way through the forest of self re-evaluation, she teams up with three unusual individuals (Stephen Gregory, Dan O"Donahue, Ron Perlman) who, in teaching her the tricks of their trades, re-awaken her faith in her own brain, heart and courage, and remind her that she knows where her home is...and there's no place like it.

This is a quirky comedy with a unique style, some fantastic double meaning dialogue, and good performances. If you're looking for a different kind of laugh, with cereal filled swimming pools, topical muscle relaxants and bad golf, along with a touch of dreams, follow "Betty."

Favorite Line(s): "Evel Knievel, he was my hero. He helped me through my childhood. I saw him break his back four times!" "What's wrong with this thing (cigarette lighter)?" "It's childproof." "Childproof?! A g*dd*mn f*cking scientist couldn't make this thing work!"

Worth a rent/buy used.
