Benny & Joon

Benny & Joon

A mentally ill young woman finds her love in an eccentric man who models himself after Buster Keaton.

In Spokane, Washington, Juniper Pearl - Joon to those that know her - is an artist. She is also a mentally challenged young woman who requires around the clock care, as she could cause harm to herself or others. Her brother Benny Pearl, who owns and operates a garage and who is her only living relative since their parents died twelve years ago in a car accident, has made the decision that she would live at home with him, in the process sacrificing being able to have a personal life of his own. He has hired full-time housekeepers to provide that care when he isn't around. However, he has exhausted the list of housekeepers, who keep quitting because Joon is too much to handle. As such, Benny makes the decision that perhaps it would be best for all concerned if Joon were to live in a group home, something he is hesitating telling her for fear of her reaction. Into their lives comes Sam, the eccentric cousin of Benny's friend Mike, Sam who they obtained from Mike in a losing hand of poker... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Terminator 8 (ag) wrote: Live reactions... best!

Marian D (jp) wrote: A complete lost opportunity. This could have been history but was lost in capturing diluted moments and missed the feeling of that time. Their outstanding music is missed in this film. I am not sure why!

Paul C (br) wrote: This is a poor imitation of "Tremors". At least "Tremors" had Kevin Bacon, who was pretty hilarious. Instead of the Nevada desert, the giant work-like monsters are in Afghanistan while the US is fighting the Taliban. Vibrations in the ground attract the worms and they the same multi-beak mouth. But the inclusion of soldiers, a helicopter, and numerous bombs and guns just make it a fairly poor horror movie. At some points, I was cheering for the worms.

Shana S (fr) wrote: You have to read the book first....then watch the movie. The book was really good!! Movie was also pretty good!

Ryan H (mx) wrote: The best of the trilogy. The Major League trilogy only gets better with each movie.

Thom B (ag) wrote: Worst movie maybe ever! Contrived, lousy acting and script. I can't believe Dennis Haysbert would stoop so low. A million bullets flying around, but no one gets hit unless the script need it.

Sheungly W (nl) wrote: totally different to the Disney one,haha/ generally is okay wonder how they would do the second one...

Alex S (ca) wrote: Begotten brings up a highly intriguing premise in which its visuals can be interpreted many different ways. Begotten contains themes such as creation and religion and the rebirth of these things. Ever since the first sequence the viewer is disturbed, however, at parts the movie is so poorly crafted that one can hardly tell what's even going on. After understanding what was going on in the first scene, I'm not even sure I want to know the rest.

Haytham K (mx) wrote: A good old film. To be seen in order to realize how good was the cinema before all this modern CGI technology!

Russell S (us) wrote: The real star of this movie is the wonderfully written dialogue performed excellently by all concerned. Oddly, Jimmy Stewart is perhaps the weak link in the chain, possibly as he seems miscast here.The experimental nature of the film makes it stand out and is the one movie from Mr. H that I I return to most.

Matthew H (it) wrote: Devil's Knot tells a compelling story, but the movie is bogged down by storyline cliches, poor pacing, and being overlong. It's a shame that Witherspoon and Firth didn't have more scenes together, as their characters are what makes the movie interesting.

Melissa H (gb) wrote: Doesn't light a candle to Funny Girl. Saw it because I was curious to see what happens to Fanny, and believe me, it's not movie-worthy.

Cathy C (us) wrote: This a total mess up of the original. Taking it's old characters,and giving them a bad replacement,plus a weakened story,and awkward comedy. The songs are the real deal in this film. Happy Feet to will make you want to put your feet on a crazy run. Review by Logan Cornn.

Gimly M (gb) wrote: Bad on purpose is still kinda bad, but major props for the stop-motion creature design.

Jim H (ag) wrote: A group of thieves recruit a bumbling fool in their quest to steal a dagger from a museum.In the tradition of Ocean's Eleven this is a decently plotted heist film. There are a few plot twists that give the script a clever feel, but it's pretty basic. The best part of the film is Best Supporting Actor Oscar-winner Peter Ustinov who makes us both pity and sympathize with Arthur Simpson. Sometimes he's too dumb to know better, and other times he's just clever enough to make him likable. I didn't like the film's style; the opening credit sequence reminded me of an Adam West Batman fight, and Melina Mercoun's performance as Elizabeth Lipp quickly annoyed me; she's the drunk girl in the bar who can go home with anyone else but me.Overall, Topkapi is light and sometimes fun but innocuous.
