Editorial Reviews

Review

A tender and poignant story, intelligently written and directed, of an unbreakable love. This is the best performance of Mila Jovovich's career. --Jeffrey Lyons/LYONS DEN RADIO

Bringing Up Bobby is a rare and beautiful film made all the more powerful by a superb cast, and flawless writing. --Amy R Handler, Film Threat`

Bringing Up Bobby is a sort of cheeky, modern-day Paper Moon filled with humor and charm. --Nicki Richesin, The Huffington Post

Product Description

In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive (Milla Jovovich), a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), find themselves living in Oklahoma.
As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had. But despite of her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behavior both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby s unfortunate run-in with the local and wealthy businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), and Olive s criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.

The reviewer who thought this one was all about the money wasn't paying attention. This is Famke Janssen's project start to finish, she wrote the screenplay, produced and directed. And while it might seem like Paper Moon revisited, the cast makes this movie. Not every actress can pull off playing a con artist with a Ukrainian accent without turning the performance into a farce. Milla makes you feel Olive's love for Bobby and to get how she got to be who she is across without beating it to death. Bill Pullman and Marcia Cross bring depth to the wealthy couple who have issues of their own, but truly want to help. Spencer List as Bobby manages to be a real kid without making you hate him when he's a brat or over-playing the pathos. This is a very good movie.

Format: DVD
Olive (Milla Jovovich) is of European descent living as a scam artist in America. Her accents vary as she both scams and raises her 10 year old son Bobby (Spencer List). Olive coddles her son and indulges his bad behavior which she seems to enjoy. The film is divided into two parts. The first part is all fun and games. The second half is after Olive gets caught and is released from jail. During the interim, Bobby was adopted by a rich real estate man (Bill Pullman) and his wife (Marcia Cross). When Bobby is around his mom, he acts up. Oh yes, they both like to act out and quote films which didn't figure into the script like it should.

Written and directed by Famke Janssen, she appeared to have written the lead role for herself. While this was designed to be a quirky film, it tries too hard with stereotyped characters that it fails. Bobby is a complex character who exhibits both independence and insecurity. He is the forgotten son we needed to get to know, but didn't because the film was all about her. So in the end, I felt nothing when I should of had a Puffs moment.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Format: DVD
Earnest performances by Milla Jovovich and Bill Pullman can't save this dreadful script and amateurish direction from actress who-should-never-write-or-direct-again Famke Janssen. The story is one you've seen many times before (and better executed): N'er-do-well mother must decide if she can do the right thing and leave her child with more stable parents or subject her child to a life of chaos.

The main problem is that there is no backstory to the character of the mother, Olive, played by Milla Jovovich (who, to her credit, swings for the fences as always). What little information we're given about Olive's history would give license to every single mother to become a grifter. She is from another country, but that serves no purpose to the story other than force us to listen to Jovovich deliver every line in an accent. As a result, we don't have a reason to sympathize with someone who is nothing more than a manipulative user of people. When she (or her child) were faced with a crisis, I found myself rooting AGAINST them. I wanted MORE tragedy to befall them, not less.

And holy, jumping, heck... who do we blame for that Bobby character? Is it the way Spencer List is portraying him, or is it the director's fault? In any respect, he does not act age appropriate... in that he acts way too immature for his physical age. One might say that a life of uncertainty has hindered development, but this would force him to become MORE savvy, not less. As it is, someone was trying too hard to turn this kid into Dennis the Menace, but without any of the charm (the comic strip version, not the movie version).

As to the secondary characters, I am the first to acknowledge that Oklahoma is behind the times, particularly when it comes to social issues.
