Comedy without snappy dialogue
I went and saw the movie Stepford Wives today with Patty. The movie had a real good cast, a decent premise but it didn't have the snappy dialogue one might expect from a comedy with such high aspirations. Each actor portrayed their part well but they just didn't have anything clever to say. I have to say, though, that Bette Midler is one of those people that can make me laugh just with facial expressions. Who can forget her killer cameo in "Get Shorty?" The movie just needed a little more bite.
I do like it when I walk into a movie and find out it's a Dreamworks production. I know that it's not going to suck. Concerning Dreamworks: I love that studios intro. That kid fishing off the moon always makes me smile.
