Before becoming a ‘serious’ actor and winning two Academy awards back-to-back, Tom Hanks used to make some pretty goofy comedies and he was pretty successful at it. Well, this movie must be the goofiest of them all and even though Roger Ebert really loved it, I had a rather hard time to care about the whole thing.

“Before becoming a ‘serious’ actor and winning two Academy awards back-to-back, Tom Hanks used to make some pretty goofy comedies and he was pretty successful at it. Well, this movie must be the goofiest of them all and even though Roger Ebert really loved it, I had a rather hard time to care about the whole thing. Of course, the plot was completely preposterous and it was supposed to be really whimsical but, honestly, I thought it was rather annoying. This movie would be the first Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan would make together (‘Sleepless in Seattle’ and ‘You got mail’ would then follow) and it was probably the least successful, even though it was probably more original. The one thing I enjoyed was to see Meg Ryan playing 3 different characters and I especially enjoyed the 1st one,” read more

50 Things To Do Before You Die (50 movies items)

"37. Fly over a volcano There are around 1510 'active' volcanoes in the world. Volcanologists disagree on what comes under the term 'active', but 1510 volcanoes have erupted in the last 10,000 years, which means they are active in the world of volcanoes. There are thought to be many more volcanoes on the sea bed. The biggest volcano in the world is Mauna Loa in Hawaii. Its whole volume is about 80,000 cubic kilometres. Sometimes lightning is seen in volcanic clouds. It's not clear why this "

"Dede/Angelica/Patricia "My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement." "Nobody knows anything, Joe. We'll take this leap, and we'll see. We'll jump, and we'll see.

TIME's Guilty Pleasures (10 movies items)

""There are people who think this film, written and directed by the fine playwright John Patrick Shanley, may be the worst big budget film of modern times. We beg to disagree. True, you don't expect to see Tom Hanks to appear in an expressionistically shot movie about premature death. Or volunteering to leap into a volcano to prevent its eruption. But and if you set aside the routine comic expectations its marketing encouraged, you may find yourself entranced by a movie that is utterly sui generi"
