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.

"Re-watch - Aug. 11th Robin Williams RIP double feature I heard Robin Williams died from a stranger whose phone call I answered at work, which wasn't the way I would've preferred to hear such information. I've been a fan of his for most of my life, so I had to do something to mark his passing. And so I decided to watch his first great movie and his last great movie back-to-back. The first time I watched Garp was back in the late '90s, and this was my second viewing. I appreciate it even more no"

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. "
