Actresses Helen Mirren, Mary Stuart Masterson and Anne Heche make their directorial premiers in this three-story movie. The ladies were able to score some high powered acting help to give this a major motion picture feel.
The short stories are kind of like the twilight zone in their feel--odd sci-fi stories that defy reality. Of the three stories, I liked the first one by Helen Mirren titled "Happy Birthday" the best. It had the best story--a funny future world where people are stratified by potential--and the best actors. John Goodman and David Hyde-Pierce are hilarious, and Sydney Tamiia Poitier is gorgeous. The other two stories are less exciting.
One interesting thing: check out the very short cameo by Ellen Degeneres in "Reaching Normal" written and directed by Anne Heche. Very interesting. It makes one wonder if this movie hasn't been sitting on the shelf for a year or more.
Also, if there is such a thing any more as an Andie MacDowell fan, check this flick out. She's looking great and sexy in "Reaching Normal."
