lright. It was either this or Wishmaster at the local theatre. I chose this. Either way, it would have been a big mistake.
To be positive, I truly liked the first hour. It was very funny, and I did laugh. But after the first hour, the whole purpose is lost in the film. It turns out Kevin Kline IS gay. But I thought the movie was about a man proving that he WASN'T gay. Only Joan Cusack, in her Oscar nominated role, makes this film worth watching.
After this decision, which Kevin Kline comes to at his wedding, the movie turns into a 'feel sorry for gay people' movie. But, really, that's the rest of the movie. He gets fired, then he gets the guy's Oscar, then everybody's happy-except me.
Of course, they just had to put one scene in the film. One disgusting scene that should have been on the cutting room floor. Kevin Kline and Tom Selleck kiss for about 15 seconds. I knew I shouldn't have bought those Reeses Pieces before walking into the movie.
Don't get me wrong. I still would have liked this film if it had kept its sharp wit in the second half, instead of becoming a soggy mess filled with a gay bashing school principal and his fight to keep Kevin Kline from teaching. Ah, well. Crap happens.
