When I think of The Moving of Sophia Myles, the first thing that comes to mind is "yawn-inducing." I still cannot fathom how the writers managed to stretch this storyline into a two-hour film. TMOSM is the second most boring film which I have ever sat through. The only other movie that comes to mind when I think of movies this slow is the low budget version of Hamlet from my eleventh grade British literature class, which was filmed in a one room warehouse. Sad. A review from Variety stated that TMOSM moves at a snail's pace, but I beg to differ. TMOSM moves at a dead snail's pace. The characters are flat, and while I assume they are supposed to stir emotion in the viewer, they only emotion they created in me was self pity- for actually sitting through the entire piece. Rue McClanahan's talent was completely wasted in this little number, as she was hardly given anything with which to work. She gave a decent, but not at all memorable performance, which was not her fault, for every character was written rather poorly. All in all, it was nice to see Rue again, and I commend her costume designer, as Rue wore some very flattering, and beautiful suits. Rue breathed a breath of fresh air into every scene in which she appeared, but she was still not enough to save TMOSM from drowining. It will take a me a long time to forgive CBS for this one.
