It can't escape the crippling clichs of similar films that have come before it, and there are far too many Cameron Crowe-ian platitudes littered throughout the screenplay to remind us that we are indeed watching a movie.
I have been looking for the movie theatre version of this movie for over a year. I do not want the Unrated version in my home. Finally, I found the PG-13 version on Walmart.com. It was a great price and arrived quickly. The movie speaks for itself- hilarious assuming you like this kind of humor.
Midway through, Rapp loses momentum, failing to hone in on just what kind of movie he wants to make, and Winter Passing languishes in that no-man's land between tiny, meandering, indie drama and plotted, pointed family melodrama.
Reminds us there is little to divide comedy from tragedy, and that neither comes exclusively. After all, the tears of sorrow and the tears of joy both come from the same place, and dampen a tissue with equal intensity.
Neither version of Melinda, despite Mitchell(TM)s game try at making them distinctive beyond their different hairdos, is funny or tragic enough to fully engage us; there(TM)s no opportunity for an audience to be moved.
This is the cheapest I was able to find this movie!\nI got it for my boyfriend for Christmas and he loved it. It was such a great buy at only $10!\nIt came in good and worked great.\nThe only thing that I didn't like was that it was not available in stores, so I had to order it.\nOther than that, the customer service was good, the pickup was good, and the movie quality was good.\nThank you WalMart!
