Twice divorced Hilda Crane feeling she's run out of chances returns to her mother's house in her small hometown and tries to decide what to do next while still hoping to hold onto her independence. That proves to be a challenge.
A man wearing an expensive gray suit finds himself in Central Park in New York City not knowing who he is or how he got there. His amnesia even extends to the fact that he doesn't know how he takes his coffee. All he has on his possession are a crumpled piece of paper wrapped around a couple of pills, the paper also with a scribbled telephone number. He is also wearing a ring with a broken stone, the ring engraved from its giver with his or her monogram, G.V. The telephone number takes him to a woman who doesn't know who he is. Based on what she calls him and some item association, he begins to call himself Sam Buddwing if anyone asks him. As he wanders New York City in a daze, he believes he may be an escaped mental patient based on a newspaper story, his clothes and the monogrammed ring. But a vision of a young brunette makes him remember a woman in his life named Grace. He manages to spend time with a few women during the day, many times he believing that woman is Grace herself. ...Written by
I was channel flipping and happened upon "Mr. Buddwing". I came in during Garner's romance with Katherine Ross, thinking that it was one of those Romantic Dramadies. You can imagine my utter astonishment when, all of the sudden, he's yelling in the middle of the park, not knowing who he was. I was glued to my seat until the very end. From my perspective, this movie was very well thought out. The idea of different women he happens upon in his journey portraying 'Grace' at different stages was brilliant. Even though the premise was a bit unbelievable, (I, too, began to wonder why he wouldn't go to a police station or something), I still think that this movie was great entertainment. *Just as a side point, I think "Mr. Buddwing" would be great as a potential remake, don't you?
