If the BIG GUY (Kilmer) liked it, it must be good. Right?
13 May 2004 | by alana-dillSee all my reviews

Well, no dear. Val Kilmer is a sensitive, funny, intelligent, attractive actor with both range and depth - probably one of the best of his generation (also mine, since he's a year older than me). His performances in several films - most notably The Doors, The Saint, Real Genius, and Kill Me Again - have been wonderful. But he has a real problem choosing intelligent scripts. I'd love to see Kilmer do more comedy; it would be really fun to see him parody the "iceman" character or, hell, I don't know, he just needs to spend more time on skates and less time portraying creepy people. Unfortunately I doubt he reads these comments...
