Runtime: 2 Hours
and 8 Minutes
Okay, I have several problems with this movie. Let's rock...
1) No chemistry between Kilmer
and Sorvino. It's as if these characters just bumped into one another
and decided to hook up.
2) Val Kilmer's portrayal of a
blind man is pretty laughable. Was it necessary for him to smile through
every scene? He seemed more creepy than anything.
3) The characters, who have no
chemistry, fall head over heels in love in the course of about six
hours. Sorry, but a couple sentences about listening to raindrops
isn't enough to convince me that they have ANYTHING going on.
4) When Sorvino describes the
old abandoned building to Kilmer, I wanted to bust up laughing. See
the movie. Or don't.
5) The father serves no purpose
for being in this movie.
6) The little kid next door pops
up whenever the plot calls for him to do so. It gets pretty annoying.
7) As things deteriorate between
Kilmer and Sorvino, little is explained. Is he mad at her? Is she
just frustrated with the relationship? I wanted to raise my hand and
start asking questions. Even when things are "resolved",
I still had issues.
All in all, it's not the worst movie I've ever seen. Somehow, I got
through the thing. But it's pretty sloppy and awkward. It's hard to
even recommend this as a renter. Yuck.
