(ru) wrote: Review:I didn't really find this movie realistic or even that funny, but it is quite a sweet love story between the 2 main characters. The whole film is set around a visiting day at a school which is were Garcia and Farmiga meet for the first time, and they end up wandering off, doing there own thing. It wasn't exactly what I as expecting from the movie, but it's light hearted fun which does tickle the heart strings. It ends pretty abruptly which was a dramatic change of tempo from the rest of the movie, which I think the director was trying to accomplish. In the end of the day, it's fun for the whole family, especially parents that have kids that are living them for further education. Watchable!Round-Up:I was really expecting a lot from Andy Garcia, but his latter years haven't been good to him in the movie world. From his earlier movies like the Godfather III and the Untouchables, he was the talk of the town at one point, but know he's lucky to be in a big Blockbuster. After playing those serious roles, it's hard to watch him make a fool of himself in this movie, but I'm sure that it won't hurt his portfolio. Vera Farmiga seems to act the same in all of her movies, so she was a great choice for this role. The movie wasn't really what I was hoping for, but it's good to see Garcia back on the big screen.Budget: $2.5millionWorldwide Gross: $50,000 (Terrible!)I recommend this movie to people who are into there movies about a dad and mother who take there kids on a open day at college. 4/10

(ru) wrote: The new protagonist is Alice, a red haired girl with a drunk for a father and a karate obsessed brother. She's a bit on the bland side. However the film has lots of great practical fx scenes and creative kills (SPOILERS ahead) such as the water bed, gym girl's detached arms, cockroach transformation... and who can forget turning the victims into pizza toppings? The plot itself may not be as memorable as previous entries, but it's still a great, fun horror film with atmosphere and plenty of memorable scenes.
(it) wrote: one of the greatest films in the history of cinema. It finelt purveys a sense of urgency with the main characters, Eric and "Mac", while they are brought on an adventure of a lifetime. Mac, or a "Mysterious Alien Creature", looks wonderful in this film. The combination of animatronics and special effects is a truly special spectacle, and I have yet to see anything better than it. In all my years of watching the finest movies on the planet, I believe that this is the one. This movie has shown me that maybe, just maybe, we all have a little bit of "MAC" in all of us.
(fr) wrote: I sought it out purely because it's an early Spielberg film, and for a theatrical debut (not counting Duel) he does a good job and the movie isn't that bad. It's pretty intense and engaging in the beginning, and throughout the rest of the movie it fades from monotonous to intense until it ends on a downbeat note (rather rare for a Spielberg film). There's not a whole lot of development or depth to Clovis and LouJean but you can definitely understand and feel their frustration at times with just wanting to get their baby back. I really liked Vilmos Zsigmond's cinematography and I liked John Williams' music. Not the type of music he became famous for, but it fits and is actually quite catchy. It became monotonous because it did get a little boring just watching them going on a cross country trip because even though Clovis and LouJean and Officer Slide are believable, they're just not that interesting to watch (except for the scene when they're watching the Looney Tunes cartoon). Overall, the characters are believable; just not that interesting. Some of the stuff in between felt a bit like filler. Would I watch this movie even if Spielberg hadn't directed it? Obviously, it wouldn't be done the way he did it but the story is interesting enough to sit through. You could definitely tell we had a great director on the horizon.
