Carry on Cruising

Not only does he get the five most incompetent shipmates ever to sail the seven seas, but the passengers turn out to be a rather strange bunch too. The SS Happy Wanderer will never be the same.

The Craigslist-era "Before Sunrise" story goes in a few welcomely unexpected though entirely believable places (especially in the last act), and there's some very bittersweet thematic heft to it, especially in the opening montage (which recalls "Manhattan," and actually boasts some really lovely B&W cinematography, even if much of the rest of the film is visually amateurish), and the final scenes, dealing with saying goodbye to an old year and hello to a new one. It takes a bit of time to get used to a movie that looks like something you and your friends could have shot and cut together--but, once you do, there's something enormously refreshing about that. Because, in the end, the story carries the day, and it's positively inspiring to see a $12,000 movie that is sweet and moving and funny and critically acclaimed. Hollywood-level production values will always have a place, but it's nice to see at least some moviegoers making room for this sort of film. It deserves it.

(ru) wrote: There's a heist, and then there's a lot of waiting. A _lot_ of waiting. And not in a good way--the movie just basically spins its wheels, with people pulling guns over and over again, and no real sense that the characters are going anywhere or that we're learning more about them. And then there's a protracted shoot-out. The end.

(nl) wrote: "Behind the candelabra" is saved by the performances of the actors. But the uninteresting plot contains too much disturbing scenes to be fully appreciated. And the weird edition of the films acheive to destroy every effort made by the director Steven Soderbergh.
