I watch this movie every time I can find it on any of the movie channels. I think one of the funniest moments in this film is Policeman Gail's little diddy he sings as he is walking up to the door of the house of his "main squeeze". I don't believe anyone has ever expressed self confidence in a more twisted way.
3 hours of a pitiful robot looking for a "mommy" who dumped him in the
woods. Steven Spielberg has lost his mind. Good thing we had a free coupon
when we rented this movie....I sure wouldn't pay to see it and I won't ever
watch it again. It was nothing but special effects and the only character
in the whole movie worth rooting for was the robot teddy
I can't believe anybody would allow their emotions to be manipulated by this clap trap.
I was bored beyond belief watching this movie, but kept watching until the end because I kept hoping one of the "fine" actors in this piece of trash might actually raise the level of this thing. Needless to say, nobody did. If you have 2 hours to kill and have already sorted all your socks, then watch this piece of junk.
I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, I understood completely the feeling
of the place, the time, the people. So many people think that life is
simple in a small town, but it is not...all the dark secrets are there,
the illness that everyone attributes to living in large cities is also
I couldn't take my eyes off the screen while I was watching this movie. Sometimes a film does come along that is everything a film is supposed to be.
If you haven't yet seen this film, please make an effort to watch it, it will be well worth your time.
I watched this film this morning. What I saw was a woman finding the
courage to live after the stoic "stay tough" attitude of her husband had
pushed her so deep into herself she couldn't fight any more.
The husband's lack of understanding was so real to me, I too am married to someone physically disabled and it has been a struggle for me to get past that sometimes.
I wish there were more films about this subject, I don't feel quite so confused now...and I maybe I have a little bit more understanding of how he may feel sometimes. To me, that's what a movie like this is supposed to do, give us insight into our own emotions and enhance our understanding a little.
I couldn't help comparing this movie to the recent "comet killer" movies and found them lacking compared to "When Worlds Collide". Yes, the f/x were not anywhere near the level of the recent movies, but for 1951 they were pretty spectacular. The acting though, was far superior and did portray the fear, the desperation and the impending doom. I watched this movie when I was a child and remember having nightmares for weeks afterwards about the end of the world. There is nothing quite as satisfying as a classic sci-fi movie to pass an afternoon.
Ruth is the most unlikable, selfish human being I have seen portrayed in a
movie in a long time. There wasn't one redeeming feature about her and yet
she was the only one I was even close to rooting for in this depressing
The only character that had a clue about what she really was about was the Viet Nam vet Harlan. The tag line to me was when he told her that they both knew exactly how long the $15,000.00 dollars would last in her hands, about 3 days.
Everybody in this movie was unlovable, unyielding and closed minded.
I first saw this movie when I was about 10-11. I cried my eyes out....doesn't effect me the same way now, but I truly admire Patty McCormick's acting ability. A true classic and now-a-days the premise of the story is maybe truer than the writer ever would have guessed
I became mesmerized watching this film. A very chilling story, a very
strange plot, but the ending was pretty predictable. The ending was very
weak for such a powerful subject.
Karen Black gave a powerful performance as the mother and the girl was wonderful. But...something was lacking in the ending.
I finally sat down and watched this movie completely this morning and was
completely astounded by the greatness of it.
I knew it was a good movie, but it was one of those movies I always thought was too good to be true, too sweet, too goody-goody.
Boy, was I wrong. It was a little bit of history, it was every family rolled into one movie.
I could identify with almost every scene in the movie and not because of the era but because of the feelings it provoked. There was so much warmth, so much hope and yet it wasn't the "perfect" family, it was just people living life on life's terms.
I'm so glad I finally took the time to watch "I Remember Mama"
