Being a big fan of fairy tales, especially their relevance to our modern lives, I thought that the perfect film for me had come into existence.

At a rundown apartment complex a mundane, bored with life handy man stumbles across a water nymph trying to save humanity from its own ignorance.
After convincing him she is more than just a nut job he attempts to get her back home,... read more

After growing accustomed to the style of M. Night Shyamalan and his twisted endings, some may not appreciate the straightforward fantastical story presented in Lady in the Water. I was one of those people as the storyline was less than appealing and seemed to drag on with the ultimate resolve being very ordinary. It seems the magical run of M. Night Shyamalan and his stories have finally come back... read more

Hahaha, this was probably one of the most ridiculous films I've ever seen. I thought this film was awful and predictable. I really did dislike it and felt I deserved a refund. I appreciate the fact that it's supposed to be fantastical, but I don't see the point to it.

The movie introduces you to a bunch of typically 'quirky' characters who will all be very important later in the sto... read more

I enjoyed this one as well and find that people bash Shyamalan all too much and for little reason. Giamatti was great here, too.

"Lady in the Water" (2006)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Right before this movie started, I said to myself, "Let's get this over with." I knew it was going to be bad… but I didn't think this bad! This was damn near intolerable!

The plot is that Cleveland, an apartment complex handyman, finds a mysterious woman (named Story) in the pool, discovers that she's an entity from an old bedtime story, and has to use clues from the tale to help her get home.

First of all, the dialogue in this movie is hideously bad, especially from Story herself!

But it was Cleveland's asking around for information that constantly aggravated me. He's making himself sound insane, but no one ever questions him! And it's just ludicrous how the group of people he assembles just goes along with it, no questions asked” read more

More favorite quotes from a film. (127 movies items)

"Cleveland Heep: H-how was the movie? Harry Farber: Sucked Cleveland Heep: Oh... what a shame. Harry Farber: Characters were walking around, saying their thoughts out loud. Who does that? And in a typical romance where the couple finally tell each other they love one another in the rain. Why does everyonelike to stand around and talk in the rain in movies? Cleveland Heep: Um... well maybe it's a metaphor for purification; starting new. Harry Farber: No, it's not! Joey Dury: The pictures on"

"5.7. M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN MARATON Shyamalanin kuittailu kriitikoille on hulvatonta ja älykästä. Muuten ihmisten tulisi muistaa, että satuihin uskominen ja Tittelituu-maan etsiminen on tärkeämpää kuin oikea elämä, koska muuten maailma tuhoutuu. Jälleen kerran aivan uskomattoman vammainen elokuva paskan elokuvataiteen mestarilta. "
