Based on Henry James' novel with the same title. It's the fall of 1850, a few miles outside Boston. The household of the dour Mr. Wentworth receives two unannounced visitors from Europe, Eugenia and Felix, the daughter and son of his half sister. Gertrude, one of Wentworth's two daughters, is instantly infatuated with her cousins, thinking them sophisticated and worldly. She turns her back on the local Unitarian minister, Mr. Brand, who has been calling on her, to delight in the pleasure and amusement Felix offers. Another wealthy neighbor, Mr. Acton, is attracted to Eugenia, who is going through a divorce with a European aristocrat. Are the Americans being used by the penniless Europeans? Or is there real affection?

Michael G (us) wrote: The squid CGI was so bad I laughed everytime I saw it. The dialogue is so dull it's mind numbing but as someone said before this is totally what to expect from a Sci Fi channel movie. This is the type of movie you leave on and do other things then look over when the music changes to something exciting.

Kyle M (ca) wrote: Despite the complicating action being re-used towards a religious development with Goldberg's favorable, comedic, musically-talented-self of turning the traditions and culture of a religious cult around, even showing some imbalanced mix to the plot that was given a comedic pay-off, this "Act" is a nicely-formed comedy as Goldberg knows how to give a good time.

Andy S (jp) wrote: This is a very stupid movie, as far as the story goes. Dumb and unlikable characters and it drags on even though it isn't really very long. However it is filmed beautifully with exquisite scenery and great music. It's very entertaining visually and that's the only reason it's worth watching.
Sally H (au) wrote: Romantic gothic thriller, with the denouement wearing a flashing hat that can be spotted a mile off. But we don't care because Vincent Price is on top ghoulishly-charming form and Gene Tierney is stunning.

David L (gb) wrote: Often been referred to in my life, but never actually seen it before, so now it has finally been ticked off the list. Have to say, haven't exactly missed out on too much but it's a decent enough slapstick comedy (if you pardon the pun). Typical American humour revolving around a young aggressive hockey enthusiast that transfers his ability to drive powerful shots onto the golf circuit in order to raise enough money in three months to save his grandmas house from being repossessed. Hampered by his closest rival, in the arrogant Shooter McGavin, and his own inhibitions, Happy Gilmore enlists the help of a former golf pro, a young attractive journalist, his former boss who he shot in the head with a nail gun, not to mention his new hobo caddy that he literally picked up from the streets. Together they train and encourage our hero to be the new kid on the block that through his unique golfing style develops a whole new following that takes ratings through the roof, making it impossible for him to be expelled from the PGA tour. It's very daft, totally farfetched, and very much aimed at a younger target audience that don't have to think to understand what's going on. I very much approve of that sort of film on the whole, but I prefer something a bit more sharper and punchier in its wit, not to mention a tad crude and unpredictable. You know what you're going to get from a movie that stars both Adam Sandler and an upcoming Ben Stiller, so you won't be disappointed if they're you're normal cup of tea. I'm more of a coffee kind of guy though, so for me this didn't live up to the caffeine highs I was hoping for.
