Martin Sheen, made-for-t.v.-movie-superstar: Shattered Spirits
20 August 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Shattered Spirits (1986) was another made-for-t.v.-movie from Martin Sheen. This time around he tackles the problems of alcoholism and and the effects it has on the family structure. Instead of treating it a sense of realism, Sheen comes across as a mean version of Foster Brooks. Too bad really because Mr. Sheen could have done a much better job instead of acting like a total goof in front of the camera. Some of the things he does makes you want to laugh out loud or scratch your head.

You can actually get a few laughs from this movie. I know me and friends did when we saw this one t.v. The subject matter needs to be handled with kid gloves. One screw up could turn what was meant to be a serious subject matter into a heavy handed joke fest.

Slightly recommended.
