And that is learning what it is that makes it so for the viewer. It is infinitely better than this horrorshow. Both her and Eddie are stupid trashy people, which is kinda funny to see. Through a very large alcoholic misunderstanding, he assaults her, and Maureen is afraid that when Eddie finds out, he'll kill the guy. Yes, but in such a place? Eddie goes to reclaim his wife.
That just shows that she loves her first spouse more than her own children. When Eddie gets released, Maureen must choose between Eddie who loves her to the extreme and is overcoming mental problems and Joey who also loves her and their daughters and nice home. I bought the whole package. First, we don't get a good look at Maureen contemplating who she she wants. I didn't know what to expect from this film, but whatever I got is about ten times better than whatever I was expecting, if that makes sense. His tenuous grasp on mental stability snaps at this point, and this is really the climax of the film.
He has been missing for three days. If you are unaware of this, you will surely be lost like so many reviewers I've read here are. In the second part of the movie Mrs. Those concepts do not typically make for artistic expression. Don't you remember the beginning of the movie? As has been mentioned before, this is not an Oscar-winning film. Although, most good films have one or the other.
When Eddie goes missing for 3 days and Maureen is raped by their neighbour Gandolfini Eddie suspects Maureen is lying about falling and he goes on an insane rampage to destroy him. Wow, I don't agree at all. The cinematography ranges from grunge to bland and I don't understand where the romantic comedy angle comes in. The characters were so unsympathetic I didn't care the least bit what happened to them. Wright, meet Travolta, who get married and have kids, until our buddy Sean gets out of the mental ward, gets a dumb haircut, and steals his lady away from her suburban family. There is no plot to speak of. What ultimately happens isn't supposed to happen in the movies.
If John Cassavetes finished the script then gone back over and edited it himself, he would have been able to figure out where he went wrong and what could have been strengthened. He doesn't make his entrance until the last 30 minutes and is in only 3 major scenes. Few films get such starkly opposing reactions from ordinary viewers. If I don't waste any of my precious time on this earth watching the denizens of Jerry Springer, why would I want to watch their fictional counterparts? These people didn't even have the common sense to come in out of the rain. Who can say there was true love between Eddy and Maureen? He did better in this than most of the Oscar nods that year.
Or another where kids are yanked out of school for a weird day at the beach. So pop some corn, cuddle up, and prepare to laugh your head off??? Though they profess their love for each other, she of course, says she simply can't run off with him and leave her kids and her present husband. Like any great jazz artist, the work of John Cassavetes may be misunderstood at first, but finds it's audience eventually. All of these characters are semi-crazy, semi-abusive, semi-kind, semi-dumb. If she didn't have kids, this would not be that big a deal. Not a very attractive story and the strong language needed for realism gets old very quick.
Crying and screaming often feels good, but trying to contain it is much harder and is often painful which makes it even that much harder. Anyone who has been in love knows that it can drive you mad. Quinn: she just doesn't make sense. About as realistic as Sam Donaldson's hairdo, and half as interesting, She's So Lovely is an exercise in self-important tedium that gives your reflex to reach for the remote control a good workout. Blame the drugs, blame the bad brain chemistry, blame the poverty, they do cling together when they shouldn't. I really can't phathom how combining a great actor like Sean Penn Dead Man Walking, the Game , a good actor like John Travolta Pulp Fiction and an ok actress like Robin Wright Penn Forrest Gump can result in a monstrosity like this.
Conclusion: a real waste of time, money and talent. Maybe this film is just too 'real' for me because I personally have dealt with this same thing. Believing that one of the children is his, Eddie goes to their home to try and reclaim what's his. It arrives in small ways throughout, but at the end there is that chaotic comic nonsense in the front yard? Maureen is a bit strung out and pregnant from her low-life husband Eddie. Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn fall in love, but their lives are everything but stable. I also thought the way Eddie was getting edgier and edgier as the film went on and finally broke was played well, and the fact that he had no clue he was gone so long.
