Unique interesting movie
23 August 2004 | by (modesto, ca) – See all my reviews

I always look for cute, interesting movies on Sundays. This is one of the best. The title character - Stanley is a quirky guy who plays the ukulele and sings. He needs a job and finds one as the recreational therapist at a retirement home. All of the characters have their own story which this movie tells each story in their own way and ties up any lose ends by the end of the movie - one of my personal pet peeves is don't introduce a storyline you aren't prepared to complete. Anyway, the acting is good - loved Marla Gibbs she was so good that you really didn't see Marla Gibbs - she was Elenor Whitney. The ukulele music was right in tune with the quirky movie, but the blues music sung by Marla Gibbs was sublime. Well worth watching a couple of times.
