The distribution fate of the film over here is not surprising but kudos to Cockerel Entertainment for releasing it. The troublesome boy has been sent to a drug treatment clinic in Utah and is now 6 months sober but his father is trying to keep him away until the election to avoid any scandal.
Rob Reiner is completely capable of making a bad movie. And it is his awareness of this that keeps him in check. Two of the greatest directors to emerge from the s and s were Rob Reiner and Ron Howard.
Sadly, both have proved to the world that, as Kurt Vonnegut might paraphrase, their excrement still has a particular odor. In this case, both their careers show that the whole was greater than the sum of its parts. Most of the movie takes place in a single apartment when Alex Sheldon Luke Wilson has hired Emma Dinsmore Kate Hudson to be his stenographer for his new novel.
This tense relationship soon blossoms into sexual tension, and then causes them to fall in love. Of course, as the book nears its end, so does their professional relationship, and Alex and Emma must figure out their next steps.
The real problem is that everything in the entire film is predictable. The story-within-a-story of the novel Alex is writing is likewise painfully predictable.
Luke Wilson and more importantly Kate Hudson are both cute. Other times, the theatrical one-room setting gets the best of them as they lay on theatre-style acting, which can squash a performance on the big screen.Stand By Me is the summer's great gift, a compassionate, perfectly performed look at the real heart of youth.
It stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny, like its heroes themselves--a bit gamy around the edges, perhaps, but pure and fine clear through.
Stand by Me: 25th Anniversary Edition [Blu-Ray] Rob Reiner. While travelling through the countryside along train tracks looking for the dead body of a local boy, meek and artistic year-old.
First Review! -- Flipped OST. Rob Reiner has done it again. After “Stand By Me”, this movie’s sure to be a classic.
Flipped is going to steal the hearts of the young-at-hearts out there. All the songs in the collection/album are all old-schooled, just like the movie. I have just watched Stand By Me which is a film directed by Rob Reiner.
It is about four boys who decide to go and find a dead body, so that they can tell the police about it and in turn be famous. The boys are called Gordie Lachance, Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp and Vern Tessio.
On the wa. Aug 22, · Directed by Rob Reiner from Stephen King`s short novel ``The Body,`` ``Stand by Me`` is a film of honorable ambitions severely compromised by a creeping show-biz phoniness. With only one hit film since the mid-'90s Rob Reiner looks to get his mojo back with "Flipped," a return to the sometimes painful and sometimes poignant coming-of-age film he pulled off so.
