The Wrong Neighbor (2017)
Bad even for a Lifetime Movie
Horrible horrible excuse of a movie. You can't even call this stuff "acting. They must have been desperate at Lifetime to fill in some space. If you think you have any intelligence at all, stay away from this movie.
You can call this a "A social satire in which a man realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself " OR you an call it "2 1/2hours of the most bland, boring, beige movie ever". I vote for the latter option myself. Matt Damon's character bumbles around as the greatest bore ever so it's no surprise when his wife declines to accompany him to TinyTown. Even more amazing is that a political dissident from Viet Nam would fall in love with him by the end of the movie because they have absolutely nothing in common. And speaking of the dissident, I am not surprised Viet Nam was ready to dump her in TinyTown. She has a high-pitched, squealing voice that makes fingernails scratching on a blackboard sound like music. Go see it if you absolutely must, but remember, you were forewarned.
A Majority of One (1961)
I don't know, I just couldn't see Rosalind as a Jewish mother from Brooklyn. Her accent, makeup and clothes were never quite the right fit for her character. Her daughter is all American sophistication and propriety and is obviously not Rosalind's pretend daughter. And don't even get me started on Alec Guinness. I don't have a problem that he isn't Japanese, he just doesn't even begin to seem even the least bit Japanese. It was so bad I couldn't even pretend he was Japanese - it was very irritating trying to watch him pull it off. They all seem overly stiff and formal, and, well, just not very interesting. I'm glad so many of you seem to have enjoyed the movie but it just wasn't for me.
The Ambassador's Daughter (1956)
Lovely Fashion Show
This movie features a lovely fashion show presented in a high-class Paris restaurant. If you are an aficionado of '50's couture, you will love this part of the movie. Otherwise, I can think of no reason to watch it.
Olivia de Havilland is way out of her depth as an "ingenue" (to say nothing of being way too old for this part) and Forsythe pretty much phones it in. Myrna Loy is my absolute favorite actress ever but even she cannot bring much light or warmth to her part. She makes for a rather dull Senator's wife sad to say.
I stopped watching this movie about half-way through so I cannot comment further on it except to say it was very boring.
Possibly contains a lot of spoilers!
Unlike the other reviewer I find this movie to be unbelievably bad. Bad acting all around, bad writing, stilted dialog, and situations totally contrived so Pa Walton can go around saying "I think I have the answer to that" or "I think I know how to solve that". Then he'll point to a tool box or a tree or read a poem and suddenly the issue is completely resolved. Plus, supposedly, all the kids are adults now yet they're still wandering around wondering if they're really meant to be a writer or if they should be a musician or a basketball player or should they work at Ike's store forever. Erin's husband Paul is rather dull and slow-witted when he can't figure out how to resolve their privacy problems and she seems equally passive/aggressive about how to figure it out. Really just a very bad movie all around.
The Magic of Ordinary Days (2005)
Dull, Empty and Lifeless
I was really looking forward to watching this movie, but what a disappointment. This was a love story? Hardly. Keri Russell and Skeet Ulrich never seemed to be who they were supposed to be (an educated scholar and a hardworking farmer) and both actors were flat and emotionless throughout the movie. I never understood why Ray was so desperate to win Livvy's love because she was without personality, charm, or warmth and certainly never contributed anything to HIS life. She was rude, ungrateful, and hostile to everyone in her new environment except the two Japanese sisters so it was no wonder she felt isolated and lonely. And I didn't understand the plot line involving the German soldier at all. It came from nowhere and contributed nothing to the story. The book this movie was based on may be a good book, but this movie was nothing but empty (except for the scenery which is the only reason why I bothered to give it 3 stars).
