Choosing Jeff
16 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Caught this on cable because I always enjoy Jeff Fahey, and I'm here to report he's very good, as always - his pain at losing his son and his frustration in trying to communicate with his grief-stricken wife rings true, it's a deeply heartfelt performance. The film, however, leaves a lot to be desired. The script is heavy-handed and clumsy, and the director and female lead, Caia Coley, heaps one over-wrought scene on top of another, which is a shame because, along with Fahey, the person who plays Matthias, Dylan Kasch, is very charming and believable, and Bo Hopkins is also fine in his part.

When you're dealing with such an unoriginal plot, the only way to make it work is to approach it in a unique way; this is not the case here by any stretch.

My IMDb rating: 4
