Storyline

Three interlocking tales of damsels in distress. An urban scene: a man sees a woman fall off the roof of the neighboring apartment building. A Western scene: a cowboy hears a woman tied to the railroad tracks and an approaching train. And a fantasy scene: seven dwarfs, reading the tale of Snow White, sense a witch passing by with a poison apple. Each races to save their respective "miss" (and sometimes get involved with the stories of the others); each runs into a staggering number of obstacles along the way (including a steadily dwindling supply of dwarves). Who will succeed? Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Pretty good, but a surprising Oscar nominee
22 February 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the story of three different klutzy people or groups of people who all come running to the rescue. They consist of the 7 Dwarfs, a guy in the city and a cowboy. Unfortunately, their efforts are pretty lame and it is enjoyable watching them screw up repeatedly. Oddly, the stories are all intermingled--even though all three stories take place at different time periods.

When I saw 3 MISSES, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Paul Driessen's animation style, while far from pretty, is rather enjoyable. The story itself is amusing but never really caught my fancy until the end--and then the punchline was terrific. However, at no point did I think that the film was that special or deserving of an Oscar nomination. Perhaps it was a slow year, but it just seemed out of place. Other Oscar nominees, such as MY GRANDMOTHER IRONED THE KING'S SHIRTS, HUMDRUM and especially the winner, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA were all more memorable as well as more enjoyable artistically. Just my two cents worth.
