A very good movie

Last year, I discovered that Curtis Hanson had retired because of Alzheimers. It sounds rather tragic that his career ended up this way. Hanson was actually quite a late bloomer as he had his biggest success with ‘L.A. Confidential’ rather late in his career. 3 years later, he came up with this follow-up which was barely noticed by the audience, even though it received some stellar reviews. Pe... read more

Description: Wonder Boys is one of those movies in which more twists and turns disrupt the life of the hero in one weekend than would bother most of us our whole lives. Professor Grady Tripp (Michael Douglas) is an aging one-novel wunderkind at a small Pittsburgh college who's laboring on his seven-years-in-the-making, 2000-plus page second opus with no end in sight. The morning of the college's literary lollapalooza, WordFest, Grady's wife leaves him; that evening, his mistress (Frances McDormand) announces she's pregnant (she's also the chancellor of the school, as well as the wife of Grady's boss). Grady's voracious editor (Robert Downey ... (more)

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (186 movies items)

"6.1. Ihan nokkelaa dialogia ja sitä on runsaasti. Pidin kovasti näyttelijä työstä ja huumorista, vaikka välillä elokuva oli todella sekavasti etenevä. Tämä lienee tarkoituksellista, koska hahmot ovat koko ajan enemmän tai vähemmän pilvessä."

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"Michael Douglas plays Grady Tripp, a college professor who teaches creative writing and whose life on campus is a slow unrambling mess that puts the directionless lives of the liberal arts majors to shame. Tobey McGuire is James Leer, a student who lies about his family situation and is either really into Marilyn Monroe memorabilia or just likes to steal Marilyn Monroe memorabilia. And Robert Downey Jr. is Terry Crabtree, a book agent who relies on Grady's unfinished novel to save his career a"
