Under the Influence
A hard-drinking family man has been successful in his business despite his alcoholism. His daughter, a professional, struggles to meet her father's high expectations while she becomes addicted to prescription drugs; his son, who works for him and who serves as both his whipping boy and his drinking buddy, is becoming an alcoholic like his dad. Then the father's drinking finally takes its toll on his health, and he demands that his son bring him liquor in the hospital as his son's life, and his daughter's, fall apart at home.

(kr) wrote: The first thing you see as "Drowning Mona" begins is a title card explaining that the movie takes place in Verplanck, New York which is the city the Yugo corporation used as a testing ground for their short-lived vehicle. Everyone in the film drives a Yugo, and the idea that this city is filled with these barely drivable, unwanted cars is quite funny and I was filled with hope for the movie. Unfortunately, that hope only lasts for a minute and there's ninety-four more to follow. It's a black comedy in the same vein as "Ruthless People", but it's written at the level of a bad TV sitcom. The characters aren't smart, and neither is the dialogue but in the same respect neither try to be particularly clever, and because of that the film just lies here inertly. The cast is filled with a lot of talented people, which makes it all the more shocking that the writers would be content with this lazy and obvious script. The actors themselves seem to sink to that level, in fact, apparently pleased solely by the paycheck. Will Ferrell generates the film's only laughs in a bit part as a perverted mortician. With so many suspects in the death of the title character, one would think that writer Peter Steinfeld would have been able to come up with a more satisfying culprit by the movie's end. His choice and reasoning seem sketchy at best and extremely disappointing at worst. Not that anything would have helped the film much at that point, but I'd like to give "Drowning Mona" the benefit of the doubt as much as possible. The story could have made for a wonderful dark comedy, but it's poorly executed at nearly every turn.

(br) wrote: "Mr. Bean's Holiday" is a clever comedy full of slapstick gags and well-meaning mischief. The film is exactly what you expect: a series of comical Mr. Bean situations tied together by a non-thought-provoking plot, which also happens to be exactly what we want when watching a film of this ilk. It certainly isn't "The Shawshank Redemption" but it is great for what it is. The family-friendly Mr. Bean gets himself into all sorts of trouble as he travels through France, picking up a few friends along the way while managing to lose his passport and money. Rowan Atkinson is marvelous with his over-the-top facial expressions and physical humor. The film is criticized for repeating the same gags for 90 minutes but there are some wonderfully creative moments in those gags. I was laughing out loud during Bean's French meal and the filming of the commercial. Willem Dafoe goes beyond the call of duty with his interpretation of his character and manages to steal the spotlight away from Atkinson for a few scenes. If you are looking for a masterpiece, look elsewhere. But if you are looking for unoffensive family fun, "Mr. Bean's Holiday" will surely have you laughing after a few scenes.
(es) wrote: "Predictable yes (Entertaining none the less)" ****This film is sure to please action film fans; it has all the things: that a martial art, thriller, film, fan would want & added in with it is an all star cast & some decent humor that made the film entertaining, for many viewers. Predictable yes (Entertaining none the less) but most films like this are; all the clichs like the bad guys taking control of the show early on to the good guy dismantling them single handily: for half the movie. A damsel in distress must be rescued; the leader of the good guys: & the head honcho of the bad guys have the climax showdown. The good guy saves the day no less.~I give this martial arts thriller film a B + (Bright)
