Well, NOT SO FAST, you goody-two-shoes, you nice people, you sensitive people briefly troubled with *practical* problems that have achievable solutions, you Millennials, you pursed-lipped old Boomer ladies, whoever the hell y'all are. We're still here, we're still partying, we still have the best music, and you know what? -- you're not invited. Get out.
The movie clearly touched raw nerves, particularly among professional reviewers whose byline photos show that they're just as "middle-aged" and "white" as the characters in Mark Pellngton's film. The other offended group were tenderfoot Millennials who resented the movie's dismissal of them, to say nothing of them being depicted as snotnose brats full of Oprah-wisdom and faux-entitlement. (The aging GenXers in the movie at least earned, or in Jeremy Piven's case, stole, their OWN money.) Former porn-star Sasha Grey's presence also seemed to offend everyone. I was glad to see her, myself, but that goes along with my disgusting sense of "entitlement", I suppose.Read more ›
This isn't a movie I would buy in DVD or Blu-Ray, but it is worth checking out on TV if you get premium service.
Just remember...I said it was "different." And it certainly
I Melt With You is not for everyone and initially I didn't think it was for me. But I stuck with it and despite several flaws, it's definitely a film that has some merits and, if nothing else, it gets credit for being a hauntingly emotional character study of middle age crossed with major life struggles.
The directorial style is not going to be to everyone's liking. Mark Pellington's shaky camera movements, off angle shots and blurry focuses might not be your cup of tea but past those (sometimes hard to ignore) aesthetics, there is a movie that more people to see. Even if you don't like the film, I give credit to the stars for taking a risk and making this outside the box drama.
The movie introduces four childhood friends who get together once a year for a week of insane debauchery. Without much preamble or development, we meet the guys briefly in their everyday lives before they assemble at an isolated chalet. Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, and Christian McKay play the quartet and it's clear that, as a whole, they've been a pretty privileged bunch. But looks can be deceiving, or so the screenplay would have you believe. Each man is haunted by regret and the life not chosen.Read more ›

I enjoyed it, although I'm not really surprised that I hadn't heard of it before. Not one I'd watch over and over like the Big Chill or Less than Zero...but it's in that realm.Published 3 months ago by SandFleaDDH
Boring movie with dramatic over-acting and unlikable characters. I tried to get into the movie but could not develop rapport with any of the very flawed and uninteresting actors. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Kindle Customer
