Movie good, Daisy bad.
20 July 2009 | by danieldavis89See all my reviews

The movie version of Dead Like Me was actually very well done in my opinion, doing a lot to wrap up lose ends left when the show was suddenly ended. Doing this of course, required a bit more serious parts and limited the dark humor we have become accustomed to with the series, but I think that enough was left in to still make this a very tasteful conclusion. That being said, I am really sad that Laura Harris was not available to reprise her role as "Daisy, Daisy Adair". While she played the role to near perfection in the series, Sarah Wynter seems completely out of place and uncomfortable in the movie. The part where (as Daisy) she forgets her lines on-stage in the film and begins acting like a lunatic because she clearly wasn't prepared for the show is to me a perfect metaphor for how badly Wynter played this character. Daisy was a deep character with a lot of hurt and compassion behind her stuck-up, somewhat slutty facade. Wynter's version lacks any depth whatsoever, leaving nothing to love and everything to be disgusted by. Sarah Wynter makes an other wise good movie get a barely passing grade. The fact that it does pass speaks volumes for the movie's other redeeming qualities. If it seems as though I am just character hating because I liked Laura Harris, well, I am not. I was upset at the change, but I was very willing to give Wynter a chance, even after I heard from a friend beforehand that she was bad. I don't like to watch bad movies, so I try to find the good anywhere I can. Unfortunately, there was no good in Ms. Wynter's performance. It was one of the worst acting performances I have ever seen. In short, I recommend the film, but only if you've a) seen the series and b) can manage to ignore the new Daisy. Luckily, she's not that integral to the plot.
