I read the book by John Irving a few times before I was even aware that there was a movie. I love the book, and I have enjoyed the movie each time I have seen it. It is close to the book, which is great---although, I don't like the actress who plays Helen. She isn't how I pictured that character while reading the book.

John Lithgow is good as the transsexual former football player w... read more

A disappointing movie

Seriously, this movie must be one of the most disappointing features I have ever seen. I don’t know, since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I built up some rather huge expectations and it sure didn’t live up to those expectations. First of all, I haven't read the book so I have no clue if it is faithful or not. Secondly, to be honest, it wasn’t actually a bad movie, not all but ... read more

Summer of 1982: 15 Classic Films Turn 30 (15 movies items)

"Release Date: July 23 U.S. Box Office: $29,712,172 2012 Adjusted Gross: $80,040,900 The summer of '82 wasn't just about sci-fi spectacle. This adaptation of John Irving's novel was only Robin Williams' second leading role in a movie, and it showed he had ambitions of being more than just Mork from Ork. His costars John Lithgow and Glenn Close (in her film debut) both received Oscar nominations. "

A disappointing movie

“Seriously, this movie must be one of the most disappointing features I have ever seen. I don’t know, since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I built up some rather huge expectations and it sure didn’t live up to those expectations. First of all, I haven't read the book so I have no clue if it is faithful or not. Secondly, to be honest, it wasn’t actually a bad movie, not all but I guess I was expecting something deep and meaningful but, eventually, I thought that the characters were rather annoying and not really interesting whatsoever. I mean, there was definitely some potential and I was intrigued by the whole thing but eventually, I couldn't help thinking that those characters were acting weird just for the sake of it and they were basically created to make you feel mo” read more
