The Bonnie Hunt Show (1995)
Brilliant! Just watch the pilot....
Bonnie Hunt is absolutely amazing and it is a *travesty* that "The Bonnie Hunt Show" and "The Building" were both so incredibly short-lived. The pilot for "The Bonnie Hunt Show" is one of the best half-hours in television. And the pilot of "The Building" was wonderful as well.
Right from the beginning of "The Bonnie Hunt Show" she sets up these wacky characters. You're rooting for Bonnie - navigating her way through her first day on the job. The overlapping dialogue and the quick pace that is just *perfect* for the news room setting. (I've read that she made the cast watch "The Front Page" to get that sense of speed and timing. Awesome!)
Bonnie Hunt is great in everything she does. She's often the best thing in whatever movie she's in. If you ever get a chance to watch this show, DO IT. You won't regret it!
First - let me say that I am not associated with the movie in any way and I paid $10.75 to see it. (I was reading the other comments and the only negative one I saw decided that all the other glowing comments were shills.)
I loved the way the stories intertwined. The acting was superb. Tess Harper and Bonnie Hunt were particular favorites for me. Like others have mentioned, I was very impressed by Ms. Hunt's dramatic work in this movie and hope she'll get to do more of it. The movie was quiet and thoughtful. Some might think it was slow, but I didn't feel that way. I was totally involved with the story and interested in the characters every step of the way.
A really wonderful film.
