Patrick W (de) wrote: I caught the Final Cut edition of the film for some odd reason. It added even more time to an already long and drawn out theatrical cut. This film is just plain boring. There's really no way around it or no other way to explain it. Check it out only if forced by your parents after they make you Thanksgiving dinner and after you already suggest Die Hard and they turn it down.
Byron B (mx) wrote: I am surprised this one was made so recently. I liked the opening credits with the animated pink panther brought to life to direct an a cappella performance of his theme song. Unfortunately from there it is just an excuse to milk the franchise for a few more dollars, while the laughs have become very strained. It's also an excuse to bring back the older generation of Lom, Cardinale, and Kwouk. Benigni is explained ridiculously as the son of Jacques Clouseau. So he has a funny Italian accent instead of a funny French accent. He bumbles and stumbles and spouts off Shakespeare and other poets, you know the usual Benigni type humor. Davi is not too bad as a bad guy. And Farentino is quite pretty though often drugged into a stupor as the damsel in distress. The plot is not important in the least and that just makes it all the more sad.

Rocco C (de) wrote: This stunning picture marking the final film appearance of legendary screen legend Mr Henry Fonda is a terrific portrayal of the turbulent and distant relationship between father and his onscreen and off-screen daughter Jane Fonda. Needless to say, the real star of this picture is Fonda himself playing the cranky and despondent old poop that is Norman Thayer. The whole point with this picture was moving away from the misconception that aging is something to fear in this world, but it is rather something that needs to be embraced and welcomed into one's life - including Norman. The relationship between the father and daughter of the picture is something of central significance throughout the play. Upon Jane Fonda's return in the final scenes of the movie to the idealistic image of her father bonding with her stepson in a way he never did quite did with her reinforces the idea that it is indeed never too late to reconcile the paternal bonds that had, at once, proven almost impossible to retain.What really stood out from this picture is the chemistry between the two lead roles; Hepburn and Fonda, in their Oscar-winning performances, appear to not capture the sexualised and lustful kind of chemistry but a kind that's most genuine, relatable and honest to audiences alike.The pictures traditional and authentic message resonates that we should quit the discrepancies and controversies of the past and aim to begin the path of forgiveness and reconciliation. Strangely, the weakest section of the picture was the undeveloped 'lack of bond' between Fonda's character and his daughter. The pair's scenes demonstrated a lack of raw emotion and total emptiness - odd considering the storyline appeared to showcase their real-life lack of paternal bonding in Jane's adolescent years. Nonetheless, no one can take away the simply beauty and treasure that is 1981's On Golden Pond. The picture's sweet and gentle plot focusing on an elderly man's search for a greater meaning to growing older in the form of the late Henry Fonda with his kind-hearted and sensible wife, the also late, Ms Katharine Hepburn.

Tommy H (ca) wrote: I've never seen anxiety captured so perfectly on film. If you've ever felt a little awkward around someone else you should be able to relate to the woman with schizophrenia. You would at least have a small idea of what it must be like and that's what makes her descent into madness so disturbing. And if you've never felt anxiety in your life watch this movie and maybe you will.

Michael B (it) wrote: Surprisingly not featuring the similarly named song as its title. Huh.Problems with this one include: an annoyingly frequent use of jump-cuts to the same scene, Randy Wayne's movie-long struggle to emote accordingly with the slew of tragedy he encounters, and character motivations that aren't fully developed.Props to the story, however for: realistically embracing both the optimistic viewpoints of religion while using them to deal with the harshness and uncomfortable scenarios of reality, decent transitioning between scenes, and while tackling more controversial issues like abortion and divorce, doesn't vilify opposing viewpoints to achieve its objective. :)
