Complex, but enjoyable
18 January 2004 | by president242007See all my reviews

Diane Keaston is absolutely stunningly beautiful in this movie -and her acting is of the highest quality and value. She provides her character with so much life, exuberance and personality and she once again reminds us of why she is regarded as such a wonderful, talented and excellent actress and why her career has flourished through three successive decades. This movie is worth watching for her acting alone -in fact I would even go so far as to say that she is the main reason why this movie is a success.

Jack Nicholson also provides high quality acting and gives his character a complex personality and several qualities that will alternatively cause the viewer to love and hate his character respectively. I would consider that this movie also allows him to display some of his unique and complex personality and the movie is the better for it.

Keanu Reeves also provides one of the best performances that I have seen him give. He has so many admirable qualities as an actor and this definitely comes through in this movie. The quality of acting from these three stars should provide a potential viewer with three good reasons to see this movie.

The supporting cast -with the exception of Rachel Ticotin (who displays a high quality of acting that I have never seen before from her)-is very weak. Frances McDormand is relegated to playing a very stereotypical role that always surfaces in movies of this genre. Amanda Peet -maybe suffering from a weak script-for some reason falls flat in this movie and the character of the daughter is not as good as what it could have been

The script is reasonably well written -but it also has a tendency to become disjointed and confusing at some points. Some sections of the script are not well thought out and the writers have missed several good opportunities when formulating a storyline such as the plot of this movie. Nevertheless there is enough humour, entertainment and warmth in the story to sustain the appeal of this movie despite the script flaws.

This movie, all in all, constitutes worthwhile viewing and I would recommend it. I think, however, that the acting of the three main stars is what keeps a movie that could have been exceedingly mediocre in other circumstances as a high quality and entertaining entity
