I read the book and grew up in Marin--so I was eagerly awaiting this movie. The movie has four glaring problems, but it solved a philosophical dilemma, for myself. It might prove B.F. Skinner's theory(disregard-sorry--bad humor)? The four glaring problems:
A. Formulaic B. The twins acting C.The twin's direction. D. The predictable script(this is where Skinner comes to mind) (Yes A and D overlap)
I'm not going to rattle on and on about a movie that could have been watchable, but I need to say something. The twins are Not natural actors, and needed a Strong director, but guess what--they directed themselves. They(the twins) even managed to make Dourif look like a hack actor. His part was so overacted, it was painful--reminiscent of Simple Jack). Harris did a good job as expected, but the awkward, shameless self-promoting of the twins was nauseating. It almost looked like they were thinking this movie would turn them into Brad Pits? I can't imagine what the principal financial guru was thinking watching this ego trip? After reading the book, he probably didn't care, but his money would have been much better spent on the homeless in San Rafael. The scenery was beautiful, but that's why people pay a lot to live in Marin. If the twins happen to read this take away one thing: YOU ONLY NEED TO TELEGRAPH ON STAGE! My sincere condolences for your father. The industry always needs Stage hands. Oh yea--if your ever given money to make a movie--write another book. That would really be a miracle, but stranger things have happened in Hollywood?
