Storyline

In the Bronx, Joe, an Irish good guy, gets bad news twice the same day: he has a brain tumor and his wife wants a divorce, saying he's dull and lacks adventure. With her father's blessing, Joe takes off for adventures in the weeks before risky surgery. In Louisville, he's latched onto by Hush, a talkative belle with two kids, big debts to a nasty bookie, and few prospects. Even after she steals his wallet, Joe offers temporary help, bonds with her kids, and faces down the bookie. Soon Hush, Joe, and the kids are on the run toward Vegas. The bookie's on their tail, so are some Bronx bad guys, cancer lurks, Hush has her gambling jones, and the kids want stability. Can this work out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Average Joe!
23 May 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Low-budget film written and directed by Stephen Metcalfe, a first time director but previous screenwriter. Billy Connolly and Sharon Stone share the lead roles in this romantic comedy. Connolly plays Joe- a decent guy who has a brain tumor, who meets Hush (Sharon Stone) who is on the run from nasty thugs (Gil Bellows and Ian Holm). Joe eventually bonds with Hush's family, and the eventual romance occurs.

This is an okay film but is tedious in parts, and Connolly and Stone lack chemistry! It had its moments, but not enough to make this a memorable film, or a particular good one either. Although, its not that bad either considering the obvious low-budget. As a big fan of both Billy Connolly and Sharon Stone, I was a little disappointed with 'Beautiful Joe'.

**1/2 out of *****!
