Who doesn't like watching these films and then sitting back and comparing your own twisted little bunch to the made up one on the screen? I usually win with my family being more screwd up, but I have finally found one a bit more messed up then my own. I mean the mother Doris, is a manipulative cold Bitch of a mother. Lynn's siblings resemble Cinderella's wicked step-sister's. Her father is in a bit of a zombie state. Her middle son has major issues, and not just drugs. Her youngest seem's to be the forgottern one. Her only daughter is a self mutilater because of her traumatized childhood. Then there is her oldest son, who seems to be the one who turned out to be the only unflawed one of the bunch. Lynn believes that may be because she didn't raise him. There is also the ex-husbands wife played by Demi Moore, who played Bitch so well I wanted to pull her through the screen a beat her myself. There is a lot happening and more reasons why this family is in a complete mess of emotions. It's a beautiful, dark, sad, and sometimes funny indie drama. I love these movies. Their full of flaws but always a film that will make you feel, sympathize, and care for the characters. That much has to do with the actors. Because it's always an indie flick that brings out a great honest performance from an actor/actress. My opinion of course, but I'm pretty sure my opinion is right lol. Lastly, the performances were absolutely fanstastic. Ellen Barkin blew me away."

Aj V (ca) wrote: This movie was very funny, I would have rated it lower if it didn't keep making me laugh. Prince normally seems to have a very serious personality with his music, so it's refreshing, surprising and funny to see him joking around. This was also a good movie considering that he directed it too, it's not easy to do both, especially when you're not actually a professional film director. The sets and cinematography are beautiful too, they're in tune with his music. The one thing I would like to say I didn't expect, was the ending. I wasn't sure whether it was the right kind of ending or not. On one hand it was realistic, but on the other hand, it feels like a let down. But overall I liked it.
Paul J (au) wrote: At times hilarious but mainly stupid. Woody Allen channels Chaplin and the Marx Brothers by taking his stand-up wit to the big screen. The film certainly goes over-the-top with its cornball and satirical antics. It has its clever and forward-thinking moments but in the end this is one of his weaker efforts. Although, it's kinda fun seeing his real-life girlfriend act alongside him. When she's trying to break up their relationship on-screen you can tell their improvisation is genuine. She totally cracks up by his X-Ray joke and then comes up with her own witty come-back.

Ryan V (ag) wrote: A posh German hotel is the locale for a penniless aristocrat (John Barrymore), a depressed ballerina (Greta Garbo, who delivers her infamous "I want to be alone" spiel), an opportunistic stenographer (Joan Crawford), a terminally ill clerk (Lionel Barrymore), and a struggling tycoon (Wallace Beery). Their troubles and dramas intersect in a variety of ways during the running time of this 1932 Oscar Winner for Best Picture. While Grand Hotel takes its sweet time in gaining narrative momentum, its all-star cast eventually delivers the goods. Many will find this film a bit dated and stuffy, but it's a good choice for those interested in old fashioned Hollywood.
