Editorial Reviews

Adan Kundle (Bruce Greenwood), CEO of a major advertising agency, is discovered unconscious in front of a wall of TVs. When he wakes in the hospital, Adan can only communicate through advertising slogans. There he meets Karen Hillridge (Parker Posey), the hospital's Head of Charity Foundation, who has a past history with Adan. Unable to stay in the hospital, and while waiting for long term care placement, Karen reluctantly decides to take Adan into her home for what is to be a few days. Through his ongoing and sometimes inappropriate slogans, Adan slowly begins to affect Karen and the dysfunctional relationship she has with her daughter Meghan (Allie MacDonald).

The movie was wonderful, Bruce Greenwood was, as usual, fantastic!

There is an intriguing idea behind "And Now A Word From Our Sponsor" that really never fulfills its true potential. The movie might have been a scathing indictment about the ruthlessness of the advertising arena. Or it might have been a social critique about a world in which communication has been supplanted by media. It never sinks its teeth into either target very effectively, instead shooting to be an amiable relationship piece. Although a critical mistake, the movie is still more likable than you might imagine, mainly thanks to a committed Bruce Greenwood and an appealing (and less eccentric than usual) Parker Posey. Seriously, without Greenwood's inherent charm, I think I would have absolutely loathed this movie. It's one joke, and it's never very funny. The hero of the movie is a former ad executive who wakes up one day and is only able to communicate through popular slogans. Like the savant of the classic "Being There," his innocent view of the world is entirely made up by what he has seen on TV. In this case, though, the commercials provide his language. Whereas "Being There," though, was a brilliant satire and an undeniable classic, "And Now A Word from Our Sponsor" is rather toothless overall.

We never know much about Greenwood. He was brilliant and successful, but has had an unexplained break from reality. As he awaits a spot in a long-term treatment facility, Posey storms into his life. The head of charity functions for the hospital, she has once met Greenwood and is a big fan. Improbably, she agrees to house him for a few days despite the resistance of her surly daughter. Meanwhile, Greenwood's former agency is looking to oust him and his rival (Callum Blue) wants to attain irrevocable control of the company.

"As amusing as it is for you, Adan, the real world isn't just a bunch of commercials on TV." Adan Kundle (Greenwood) is one of the world's best ad executives. He owns his own company and it is one of the best in the world. When he wakes up in the hospital he is unable to speak in anything but ad slogans. When Karen (Posey), a nurse at the hospital he is at recognizes him she agrees to take care of him for a few days. This is an example of a movie where you hear what it is about and your first reaction is "really, that is movie?" but when you watch it it really surprises you. While this movie will not win awards the acting is great and the dialog is actually very funny and witty, considering half of the dialog is nothing but commercial slogans. I really like Bruce Greenwood and he is the main reason I watched this but I am very glad I did. Overall, a very good movie with great acting that is very much worth watching. I liked it quite a bit. I say B.

A charming, silly, funny movie about an advertising exec who apparently has a breakdown and can only communicate via slogans we have all heard. Bruce Greenwood is simply amazing with his ability to deliver ONLY slogans 100% in the entire film and yet communicate emotions with his facial expressions.

Where's the beef? There is none, it's not needed. Not a heavyweight film, but one the whole family can watch.

I would have preferred a better finalized ending, but the alternate take of Greenwood in one already funny scene that is shown with the closing credits should not be missed!

The movie was wonderful, Bruce Greenwood was, as usual, fantastic! It was an original perspective on the affect of advertising on the populace. I definitely recommend this movie for those wanting a change of pace in comedy.
