I'm far from impressed.
People seem to like this movie. They think it's smart, witty, wonderfully directed and written, well acted... they, whoever "they" are, love it. I on the other hand think the film maker tried way to hard to be original. Everything about the film is too unrealistic to be taken seriously. The dialogue is over the top, the characters are flat, the atmosphere is missing and there are too many bogus qualities about the world these kids live in to count on one finger. The film had a few moments of absurdity that made me laugh but I'm not entirely sure they were intentional. I still don't see the film's theme and I don't even really care. Maybe I just don't "get it" or maybe there really is nothing to get.
Head Cases (2005)
Great show, but how long before it is canceled?
After watching the pilot tonight on Fox (9/14/05) I can see this show will develop into a great drama/comedy. Chris O'Donnell and Adam Goldberg are both great actors and I was actually surprised they have come to television. Adam's character's eccentric behavior works perfectly off of Chris's character, who is the perfect "straight man" in this show. The writing is excellent, as is the direction. If only Fox allows it to continue for an entire season. Anyone who has fallen in love with a great show on Fox is well aware that the station tends to cancel a show, no matter how great, due to poor ratings. Since Head Cases is up against Lost, I'm not quite sure how it will do ratings wise. I can only hope Fox allows it to run a long course, and more people begin watching. I think promotion by Fox and good word of mouth by viewers are key.
