Waaah.As a reviewer, and a lover of great movies, I had so many difficulties with this particular film. Then again, it had a few redeeming points, so it was worth the four bucks I paid to see it. But I think anything more than the four bucks, I would have had to complain.
You all know the plot (if you don't and you want a deeper explination of it, go read someone else's review). From the beginning, Chris (Robin Williams) and his wife Annie (that.. woman whose real name I don't know how to spell) are destined to be soulmates. That, right there, was one of my problems with the movie. If they were soulmates, why didn't we see some *connection* between the two other than sidelong glances and the *occasional* kiss, or whatever. I just wasn't convinced they were soulmates at all. It all seemed like a rehashing of every single cliche I've ever seen. I didn't feel it.
And the kids.. WHAT was up with that? Those kids looked TORTURED! Neither of them seemed really happy, and shouldn't being the children of two "obvious" soulmates make you wear a smile on your face for all time? Christ. It didn't look like there was *any* love in the house, and it seemed as if the parents were almost happy that they lost the kids. As if they could have more time for their "soulmateness."
The other great part was the 'pretty pictures.' Everything was done so awesomely. The scenery was magnificent. Nothing could beat that. It looked as if you could almost reach out and touch the colors. Possibly just like a good acid trip. You never can tell.Lukewarm rating for a lukewarm film that's destined to be forgotten quickly.
