Editorial Reviews

After moving to a small, rural town, uptight Joel Bixby (Tony Award-nominee John Cariani, Showtime, Kissing Jessica Stein), is invited by an agreeable new acquaintance to join a group of townsmen who meet in a ramshackle room at the edge of town. Normally a loner, Joel finds himself enamored by boisterous, fast food connoisseur Leo Applegate (Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Edward Asner, Up, Elf, TV's Lou Grant and Mary Tyler Moore) and reluctantly agrees to go. Unknowingly the replacement for a beloved member who recently passed away, Joel meets the group's other surviving members and is swept up in their strange lives, but struggles with their secretive purpose for gathering - until he realizes each of them is as lost as himself. Gleeful Dink (Jack Kehler, Men in Black II, The Big Lebowski), who deeply loves his bald wife, is in touch with his feminine side; Perry (David Wells, Basic Instinct, Star Man, Beverly Hills Cop), a former minister, is suffering a crisis of faith; and volatile Nick (Mark Fite, Fight Club, Godzilla, Independence Day), who lost his job and family, also seeks a miracle. As the men grapple with their worries and unraveling lives, Joel finally learns their mysterious purpose.

"Elephant Sighs" fits in the narrow category of simple, unique shows. Although it is slow moving - or perhaps at a 'deliberate' pace - the story is worth seeing to the end.

A young, socially inept lawyer who is new in town finds himself included in a men's club of sorts. The other four men welcome him and go about their normal bickering and commiserating but never explain why they meet. He thinks the situation is confusing, but he cannot extricate himself politely. Enduring a sometimes-stressful afternoon with the group helps the lawyer to discover more about being human than he learned from a lifetime.

Of late, all films seem to copy old, shopworn stories. I was pleased to see something different in "Elephant Sighs."

Good men's movie...relationships between/among characters are very real...tells well the story of difficulty men have to relate with one another...main character does not see a reason to be in the "club" but there is one and he finds it...tale of Elephant Sighs being heard a long way off is like the sighs of the main character, who doesn't know what's wrong with his life...he finds out...he needs other men, not for sports, or games, or money, but just to be part of a group, to "sit in circle" with these guys...these homely, some fat, some old, some crazy guys all going through life alone but for this group...

ELEPHANT SIGHS is a well-made, thoughtful, warmly funny, and moving little film. It has a top-notch cast of familiar character actors led by the wonderful Ed Asner. The movie seems to start slowly as we meet and get to know the characters - but that's the point. Stick with it and you'll be rewarded by the unexpected and moving ending. This is a movie with something to say and is a breath of fresh air.

I do not normally comment on movies but I feel that this one deserves a disclaimer of sorts. For about an hour I found myself wondering why I was watching it. I listened to the other reviewers though and waited it out, and I'm happy I did. The ending was super sweet!

I'm a woman, but I don't see it as just a "man's movie." Support and honest communication have never been more important, but always cost the lose of something vital; like jobs, relationships & family b/c too many are afraid to do so for the very fear of losing the same things. "We murder self when we become so disgusted living a life so far from the life we always wanted to have. When all avenues of hope are exhausted, some prefer to die in a moment rather in inches," Kristen Williams. This movie so eloquently displays this issue in society & what a few other people going thru the same thing can do to save each other. I'm just waiting for a herd of elephants to come charging into my front door any second now!

A bit more tightening on the editing and this would have been really excellent. Great actors and pretty good theme, but a little too easy to just get lost in the story, idea, aim. It took clear to the ending to get that great punch of meaning, and by that time I imagine most folks had stopped watching. Definitely a confusing film.

Solid performances across the board, especially by Ed Asner. The supporting cast are actors with whom I was not familiar, but after seeing their work, I can't understand why. Quirky sweet story.

Sweet. Tender. Awkward, yet warm. It's certainly no no shoot 'em up, action flick. Ed Asner leads a talented cast that will make you smile and cry at the same time.
