Crop And Save
Coppola. Shmoppola, I don't care if it was written and directed by the Pope-ola,
THIS IS THE WORST movie I have seen in many, many years. I just sat there waiting and waiting for this movie to start. A previous reviewer said the scenes were too long, I couldn't agree more. At one point there was a scene of the main character and his daughter lying by a pool (with no apparent reason since there was no dialog) and the camera just pans, and pans, and pans backward for over a minute (I thought we might go to satellite view with this one) how ridiculous. And how about the scene where the screen went black? It was black for like 30 seconds. I thought there was something wrong with my TV and actually got off of my couch to check.
And speaking of dialog, where did that go? At one point the 2, father and daughter, go to Italy for some sort of award presentation, this is a good 30 minutes into the movie, and in the 10 minutes or so in Italy, the Italian dialog was twice as much as the previous 30 minutes of English dialog. Come on!!!
All in all, my recommendation is to spend your 97 minutes doing ANYTHING else. Even a game of tiddlywinks is deeper than this movie.
Hey Hollywood, good call on letting this one go to the screen.
Oh, by the way... Why did I give it a 2 instead of a 1? Because Elle Fanning is a great young actress, as simple as that.
