Everyone Needs Teddy Bears...

Teddy Bears is a thoughtful film that takes you on an emotional ride
that balances humor, sorrow, love and friendship perfectly.
One reason this film works so well is because unlike so many other
movies, there are no useless moments. There is no filler, no fluff. The
moments are all needed to give a poignant story its well deserved
voice. This is all thanks to the excellent story telling of the writer,
Thomas Beatty, who also co-directed with Rebecca Fishman. In short,
this is their baby and it is beautiful.
The second reason is the cast. Gillian Jacobs, Zachary Knighton, David
Krumholtz, Melanie Lynskey, Ahna O'Reilly and Jason Ritter make the
main ensemble. They fit perfectly together. You don't doubt that they
are old friends who care and love each other and would do just about
anything to help one another. It also doesn't hurt that the supporting
cast includes powerhouse Ned Beatty, Dale Dickey and French Stewart.
There is only one drawback about this film. It needs to get wide
distribution so I can see it again. This is one film that is well worth
your time and it will be one that you will want to watch again and
again. It also leaves you reflecting the "what if's" of your friends,
family and loves, which in the end is what all great movies do.
