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. 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.
