Pointless filler about a fine film
26 October 2010 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

This Sundance Channel nonsense takes a perfectly good film (Tod Williams' John Irving adaptation), and treats the viewer to an idiotic analysis -sort of- regarding a random scene, duly repeated as an "extra" on the DVD version of the film's re-release. What a waste of time.

Same DVD has an interesting interview with John Irving plus a decent enough "making of" promo. But I can't imagine what they were thinking with this junk.

I duly watched the film first, before tackling any spoiler-laden extras. What a shock to see perhaps the silliest scene in the film, a candidate for "deleted scenes" status, given the royal treatment. Get serious, guys.

For the record, the scene chosen is one that Tod admits doesn't fit the mood/style/tenor of the rest of the film, on purpose -it's lighthearted. Mimi Rogers is mighty angry as the figure model/sex plaything that Jeff Bridges has callously dumped, and she comes running out of her house with a butcher knife. How amusing to see Bridges run for his life before a woman scorned.

If the filmmakers or Redford hacks wanted to pick a fun scene, they should have done the "anatomy of a scene" about Rogers' anatomy, namely an earlier scene where she reprises her unabashed/unashamed approach appearing fully nude for Bridges' drawing efforts, a mature uninhibited mantel she properly earned a decade before in Nic Roeg's FULL BODY MASSAGE Showtime movie. Now THAT I would have enjoyed.
