Editorial Reviews

Julia Stiles (TV's Dexter) and Academy Award® winner Shirley MacLaine (Best Actress, Terms of Endearment, 1984) star in this endearing romantic comedy about Carolina (Stiles), a young woman trying to escape the eccentric ways of her wacky Southern family and meet the man of her dreams—a nice, normal available guy. Finding him appears easier said than done until she meets a handsome and debonair Englishman. Will Carolina's dream turn into a nightmare when she introduces her perfect guy to her less-than-perfect family?

Customer Reviews

I thought Carolina was one of the best movies I have ever seen.
Howard Case
Carolina is trying to live a life as far removed from her past as she can get and still keep in touch with her family who she loves.
Amy Henley
Julia Stiles was perfect in the lead role, and Shirley Maclaine, was fabulous as grandma mirabeau..

Based on quality this movie should have been released in the theater. However, because it is a more "quiet film," the studio was probably worried that it would cost them more to release it in the theater than they would make by just releasing it on DVD. Shirley McClaine and Julia Styles are well known actors, but there have been many romance movies recently of this type, so the studio probably figured these actors alone might not have enough pull to draw in a big crowd. I hope the audience out there proves them wrong because this is a good movie. Regardless of how it might or might not have done in the theater, it is a great renter. Although it is like every other romantic comedy released in the last few years in that one friend is secretly (or not so secretly) lusting after the other, the acting and writing distinguish it from the rest. As Randy Quaid says in the behind the scenes documentary (special features bonus), the movie is "about real people."

Julia Style's character Carolina grew up in a dysfuntional family that would give any "real" family a run for its money in terms of personal problems. For example, one of her sisters thinks she can win the lottery by going into a trance, while riding a rocking horse. Also, at the movie's beginning you find out that Carolina's Dad is an alcoholic who drops each sister off at his mother's doorstop as soon as she is born. Shirley McClaine plays the tough talking, tough love grandma who raised the three sisters to be independent, yet she likes to have them do what she says. Carolina is trying to live a life as far removed from her past as she can get and still keep in touch with her family who she loves. It is the conflict between these two desires that drives her character.

I didn't see any reviews or previews for this movie at all. Surprising because it was pretty good. Julia Stiles and Shirley MacLaine work well together as grandmother and granddaughter. It's a touching tale of one dysfunctional family's life. It has it's fun (and touching) moments and I would watch it again.

First off, I would like to say that according to imdb.com, it is said that Kathy Bates was to play the part of the Grandmother in this film...thank god they chose Shirley McLaine for this part, nothing against Ms. Bates and her talents, but after watching this movie, I could not see anyone else playing this part but Ms. MacLaine....

With that said, I have to say that this film is both funny and touching at the same time. It is a movie about two things, finding the right person, and it is about what a family is all about...we all have those family dinners that you want to get up and leave right away as soon as someone opens their mouth...and this is the way that Carolina feels as she totes her date around, trying to impress the family. What she finds later is that no matter who your family is, or where they come from, you love them just the same....a good family picture...should not be missed!!

This feature brings back into focus what most of us seem to

forget : some of the best things in life are right under our noses - we get caught up in looking for the perfect item or dream which clouds the vision to see around us. "Carolina" is

poignant reminder of this fact and because of this, I would recommend this film to anyone that likes to ponder on 'LIFE'S

TURNS'.

Format: DVD
Carolina stars Julia Stiles as a young woman named Carolina who has trouble finding love. Her dilemma is ironically underscored by the fact that she works for a television game show called "The Perfect Match." One day Carolina meets a handsome, rich, available Englishman on the set of the game show and she becomes romantically involved with him. Carolina doesn't notice, however, that her best friend--a handsome, eligible bachelor and her next door neighbor--is jealous of her new relationship. One of the running jokes in the film is that the best friend writes romance novels under a pseudonym--using a woman's name. Only Carolina knows his secret and there are a couple of funny scenes in which people talk to the best friend about his books without knowing that he's the author. Carolina's romance problems are further exacerbated by the existence of her eccentric family. How will her new prim and proper English boyfriend react when he meets Carolina's family?

Shirley MacLaine plays the role of Carolina's grandmother who raised Carolina and her two sisters because their dead-beat, drunkard father was not at all interested in raising them. The grandmother herself is quite a character and has unorthodox child-raising methods. In a scene from Carolina's childhood Carolina is arguing with her sister and the grandmother hands them both butcher knives and sends them out to an alley to fight out their differences. When someone questions the grandmother about her decision, she responds "don't worry, they're not that sharp." Despite the grandmother's unusual childrearing techniques, deep down she loves the kids very much. In general the depiction of Carolina's family is over the top.
