Quirky, interesting. Different
This is one of my favourite movies. The extremes characters are well done, and the message is quirky and uplifting, even if a bit melodramatic. A very well told tale of good vs evil, and a stellar performance from Dustin and Geena Davis.
A very good movie. Dustin Hoffman played a very good roll as he usually does. The story was very good, and it told a very important moral value to life.
Loved it. Very good story line, expressed well in a first-class screenplay. Dustin Hoffman is outstanding, particularly in the rather longish, very dramatic, extreme close-up shot of him speaking on a pay phone to his ex-wife. It's hard to understand why this film never won an Oscar, nor even a nomination. There is humour, there is sadness, and there are some terrific lines. My favourite was Deke, the archetypal hard hearted, unsympathetic, unemotional and unfeeling news director at Channel 4 (played by an uncredited Chevy Chase) after watching the first rushes of the ' accidental hero' giving his grandiose sob-story - " Have you ever heard more drivel, coming from someone who's not even the President ? " A extremely under-rated movie that has lots of inspiration, lots of humour, lots of wisdom, and leaves you with lots of warm fuzzy feelings.
The movie was an average story and production however Dustin Hoffman was superb and Geena Davis was gorgeous.
Dustin is always great to watch - rest not so impressive. Bit constructed.
A highly entertaining piece of escapism, Highly improbable but attractive, and well acted.
Good acting as well as funny.
