Leaving the city behind for a weekend of booze, bud and bonding at the coast, seven friends find themselves stranded en route to South Padre Island when a big storm interferes with their plans. The town of Middle Spring is more than happy to welcome them with open arms, however; located in the rhinestone buckle of the Bible Belt, Middle Spring is smack-dab in the middle of a big barbecue and tent revival and there’s always room at their table for a few more warm bodies. Unfortunately, no one in Middle Spring is exactly who they seem to be— this town takes the Bible quite literally, and the friends have to stick together as time begins to run out and they realize that what’s on the menu may be closer to home than they suspected.

It definitely had a nice plot behind it however not all of that was displayed during the movie. Rather a lot of it was hidden and "implied" where the viewer is left to consider things.I feel that some parts were a bit "corny" and unrealistic though. In particular the fight scene at the end and the AI character. I feel that the movie would have been better if it were a bit more in the direction of 2001: A Space Odyssey with more realism and with a AI character that was more like HAL than a stereotypical comic book villain.Overall though don't get me wrong. I appreciate this film and I would recommend it to Sci Fi fans. Just don't walk into it expecting it to be anything like 2001 in realism, seriousness, or AI characteristics or else you will be very disappointed.

Information is delivered very directly and unfettered by floating graphic charts or devious editing. The human rights abuses that have been happening in Tibet under Red China's annexation are sickening and maddening. There are some good, (yet, actually horrible,) footage of events and changes to Tibetan culture. Interviews with monks who have been tortured for their beliefs. The Dalai Lama explains his views on the Chinese and on how the exiled government and Tibetan people are going about their struggle. Not that there are not worse things happening in our disgusting global society, but it is important to be aware. In the case of Tibet, this is something that WE ALL made possible by our constant funding of "Made in China" crap that we happily buy at our local retailers. How many of those people who went to the Free Tibet concerts were wearing their Made in China clothes, work in retail stores peddling Chinese made trinkets? But they can go to a concert and feel good about themselves...they make a difference.

It is a wonderful piece of theater. It is not an adapted script, re-written for the screen. Every word of the original script i...read mores here and every scene is intact. On the stage, where there's a curtain close or light dim for a scene change, in the film, there's the dinner party - an absolutely brilliant transition device. There are many great plays adapted to become great films. "Six Degrees of Separation" is one of a very small number of plays successfully brought to the screen complete and intact, word for word, and scene for scene. In fact, it's the best I've seen. It received outstanding critical reviews because reviewers who had seen the play understood the film, but much of the general audience was sorely disappointed because going to a film to see Will Smith run across the naked is a terrible reason to view a film. This is a film loved by theater fans who don't have easy access to stage productions and by those who simply love theater and film.

Tim L (au) wrote: As a person living successfully with a mental illness, I would not endorse the movie ?Crazy People? starring Dudley Moore and Daryl Hannah. The movie description of a psychiatric hospital looked more like a five star hotel, causing the average Joe who watches this movie to think that people in a psychiatric hospital are undeserving of stay?s in the lap of luxury unlike any hospital stay in a psychiatric hospital I have had. I was glad to watch a movie where people in a hospital had a chance to be in a work environment for the first time in their lives, however inappropriate pay and recognition for a job well done is a true insult to the mentally ill in this country that work hard and provide services that benefit the society around them. The movie did demonstrate an unfortunate historical truth (thankfully no longer lawful in today?s day and age) demonstrating how those patients who achieve success in hospital based vocational rehabilitation based jobs were often committed for a period beyond their time for discharge because they were so good in the hospital jobs they were assigned to that ultimately provided profit for the hospital they were committed to. Unfortunately character portrayal?s in this movie were not as much a symptom of mental illness as they were criminal or aggressive acts which often times leads people to be fearful of those who are living with a mental illness when in reality people living with a mental illness are much more likely to be victimized by aggressive criminals than the other way around. I suppose many people would find ?Crazy People? to be entertaining however it was far from an accurate or realistic snapshot of people living with mental illness. Simply put, the movie did not match up with reality as I have experienced it. In conclusion, the movie ?Crazy People? was filled with a lot of myths about mental illness. Although the production team did their best to demonstrate comic relief, my fear is those that choose to watch this movie will have a difficult time with not generalizing the behaviors portrayed by the mentally ill. Such stereotypical behaviors of mental illness include violence, low functioning, child like, idiotic and stupidity all of which are not common characteristics of anyone I know that?s living with a mental illness. Although I can?t say enough bad things about this movie, the last point I will make in this review will be: Would the story line be considered funny if the movie made fun of a hotel full of people living with a stroke, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer?s, Parkinson?s, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinabifida or even Aids? If you think outlining comedy that makes fun of the above diseases can be described as ??Really big laugh?s?? like Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times stated in his review of the movie ?Crazy People? you might be as sick as those who made this movie.
