I'm not the biggest fan of Bill Murray, but I've always thought he was ok. In this movie, however, he really shines playing both comedy and drama, for a role he attempted in Osmosis Jones, but got it right for this movie. I always love Melissa McCarthy and she does great in this movie as well playing a recently divorce mom trying to keep control of her situation. Its a movie that isn't trying to be funny, yet somehow I found delight in some of their normal conversations and situations. It's absolutely a movie worth watching if you are looking.

David P (ru) wrote: Don't lament for Mark Hamill. A lot of people unfairly compare his career arch to that of Harrison Ford. Although he hasn't remained at the apex of super-stardom he still has a legacy and a career that most people in their right minds would kill for and a level of anonymity and privacy that even Ford would covet. He's been triumphant on Broadway in productions as varied as "The Elephant Man" and "Amadeus". He's garnered critical acclaim in the fantastic World War II film "The Big Red One". He's one of the most valued voice talents on the planet today and his take on "The Joker" is still unsurpassed. And finally, he's a living, breathing cultural icon having appeared in a certain little-known, indie movie series about a certain War amongst the Stars. He's also a guy who's not shy about his passions, as "Comic Book -The Movie" will attest. Growing up an army brat, Hamill was often uprooted as a child and ventured into a passionate love affair with comics as a way to assuage his periodic isolation. His sole directorial effort is a loving nod to the medium but after watching this I really wish he'd taken a different approach. I know comedic "mockumentaries" like "Waiting for Guffman" have been popular in the past but I'm afraid "Comic Book - The Movie" just doesn't measure up. The set up is actually pretty relevant to comic fans but waaaaay too insular and geeky for most of the population. Hamill plays Don Swan, a rabid comic book geek who learns that his favorite Golden-Age superhero "Captain Courage" is about to get a big-scale Hollywood makeover. Unfortunately the production company that purchased the rights doesn't give a rat's ass about the character's origins and is looking to repackage him as an ultra-violent, terrorist-killing vigilante redubbed "Commander Courage". Swan manages to weasel his way into the production as a consultant while secretly trying to steer the film in a direction that won't compromise the spirit of the super hero he loves so much. Most of the film is shot like a future EPK piece/hypothetical DVD extra, which can account somewhat for the complete lack of a budget here. What gives the film it's limited appeal is the length to which Hamill goes to sell us that "Captain Courage" is actually real. For fans of the genre, this is a real treat since we get appearances and interviews with a fleet of industry stars like Stan Lee, Peter David, Matt Groening, and Mark Evanier. We also get a lot of walk-on's by movie types like Kevin Smith, Bruce Campbell and J.J. Abrams and cultural icons such as Hugh Hefner and legendary comedians Jonathan Winters and Sid Caesar. It's clear Hamill knows a lot of people who don't mind doing him a favor but most of the time we're forced to sit through a lot of painfully unfunny, unscripted inside jokes and performances from voice actors in underwritten roles. For example, Jess Harnell (who's perhaps best known as Wakko Warner on Animaniacs) plays Ricky, the studio-retained cameraman who's tasked to follow Don Swan around. Here he's forced to play a character who makes Otto from "The Simpsons" look like Charles Foster Kane. Bless his heart, he tries his best, but he often comes off as gratingly annoying. Even more irksome is Billy West who's voice is instantly recognizable as Fry in "Futurama" and Stimpy from "Ren and Stimpy". Here he's cast as an oblivious relative of the creator of "Captain Courage". He's meant to be awkward and a tad creepy but you get the impression that his discomfort in front of the camera is painful to witness mainly do to a complete lack of guidance and structure. Perhaps the most agonizing thing to witness is an impromptu method acting throw-down that occurs during a A-list "party" in the Hollywood Hills between Daran Norris and Donna D'Errico in which they impersonate woodland creatures. It's literally sweat inducing and a real shame. With Hamill's access to industry vets and his encyclopedic knowledge of comic books I really wish he's just made a straight documentary instead of this exercise. As a fan of comics, movies and all things sci-fi, I kinda dug the fake interview segments between Don Swan and his co-conspirators. It's amazing the conviction they were able to generate for essentially an elaborate MacGuffin. Mark Hamill also gives it his own personal all, engaging in a fun performance and trying to be game for any masochistic humiliation he decides to trowel upon himself. There is one genuinely funny scene when he claims not to be wearing rose-colored glasses about the chances of a reverential "Captain Courage" film while he's actually physically wearing a pair of rose-colored glasses during the interview! The film does have it's heart in the right place in attempting to encapsulate the protective fear that any fan reserves for their beloved favorites. I just wish more of the run time could have been dedicated to the point rather than subjecting the audience to scenes that are either so geeky as to carry a whiff of body odor or embarrassing to the point of wanting to stop watching. Tilt: down.

Adam F (au) wrote: "Bubble Boy" isn't funny. Right there, it's reason enough not to see it. But it's worse than that; it's offensively bad, offensive and devoid of any creativity.Jimmy (Jake Gyllenhaal, who has thankfully moved on to bigger and better things) lives in a plastic bubble. He was born without an immune system and to protect him from all of the dirt and disease out there in the world, his mother keeps him isolated and permanently sealed in. When Jimmy's crush Chloe (Marley Shelton) informs him that she's moving away to marry her boyfriend, it breaks his heart. Determined to win the girl of his dreams, Jimmy decides to venture into the unknown, so basically anything outside of his room.Most of the jokes here are aimed at the lowest common denominator. It sinks to a level so low that not even the brightest team of writers could have dug this out of a zero-star rating. Don't believe me? Then I challenge you to write ANYTHING that including a joke where Bubble Boy "Jimmy" has to get rid of his erections by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and to do so with the intent of making someone laugh. You think you can do it? Then try throwing in twin old fogeys that die while driving vehicles, a woman with a vulgar name that is censored every time a character in the film says it and a sheltered boy who says inappropriate things because he doesn't know any better. I couldn't make the task more difficult unless I came into the room and started dumping used kitty litter on your head every time you wrote the word "Jimmy".What makes the movie offensively bad is the amount of jokes at the expense of religious organizations and visible minorities. This screenplay feels like it was ripped out of a talentless sweat shop that cranked out bad comedies in WWII it's filled with so many would-be comedic moments including Jews and Asians. Not to be exclusive in their tactless ways, get ready to witness cartoonish Hindus/Indians (who love curry so much they mix it with their ice cream), jokes at the expense of the physically handicapped (who are depicted as half-wits or cruel circus performers) and Christians (who are depicted as psychotic and cruel). If it's sounding like maybe it's just offensive to everyone and maybe that balances it all out, it's not. "Bubble Boy" is not a satirical film. Racism and stereotypes are simply used as filler until the end credits start to roll, probably so that everyone would leave the room out of fury before they could start writing down the names of those responsible.All that, and the story is mercilessly bad. You have seen this sequence of events countless amount of times. The nice guy that should've gotten together with the pretty girl but for some contrived reason did not. Now she's about to get married to the jerk that doesn't really love her (and has no real redeeming qualities or reasons to be loved by the girl) so the nice guy has to get out there and find her before it's too late. Comedy hi-jinks ensure and we meet a whole bunch of wacky characters in a fantastic adventure that culminates with our hero entering the church at the last second. It's as imaginative as a straight line on a white sheet of paper.Sure, there are probably some things that will make you laugh out of desperation to keep your sanity aloft. Danny Trejo is in here and people like him sometimes. Jake Gyllenhaal is a good actor that's been in some great films so maybe you will somehow be able to mentally connect some dots to make the fact that a talented person is wasting his time humorous. Maybe your whole family was just eaten by lions and your standards for a comedy are really low right now. Give your comedic tastes some credit though. You deserve better than this movie and you've got better things to do than sit through "Bubble Boy"; a tasteless, unfunny waste of time. (On Dvd, February 18, 2013)

The special effects are goofy, but fun in that bad kind of way, the dialogue is trite and not at all realistic, plot is cliched as hell, and then the snake starts killing everyone, including an over-the-top Robert Englund. That's about all I wanted from this.

Josh C (mx) wrote: This is a slow developing character study of Jackson Fentry (Robert Duvall) a handyman/farmer and Sarah Eubanks (Olga Bellin) a verbose pregnant lady who's been abandoned by her husband. Duvall does a brilliant job of portraying Fentry and his performance is why I'd recommend this movie. However, the story (based on a Faulkner short story I've never read)is lacking. I wish the story had been told in the present instead of the bulk of the film being a flash back since I kept wondering why this story made him a bad juror. Bellin did a good job too, however I could never figure out why she left her home on foot being very pregnant in the dead of winter. The movie also felt a lot like a play with 95% of the scenes taking place in Fentry's barn/home. As an aside, I love Sling Blade and it seems apparent that Billy Bob Thornton took quite a bit of Karl's character from Duvall's performance.
