Again, if it wasn't for my son, these movies would never exist is my psyche....this is a nice little movie...let's hear it for nice.
Bought it on a fluke after reading a few reviews while surfing [...]. Didn't expect much. Got everything.
I highly recommend it, both for adults and children (what a perfect film for a family to watch together), and here's why.
Oh, where to start. I would start with the fact that the most perfect voice was chosen to be our talking, and very smart, albeit sad, Paulie. Actor Jay Morh (the voice) also plays a role in the film very well indeed. His voice as a human is completely different than that of Paulie's, which shows this actor's talented skill.
Now what else do we have. A script which is entirely unpredictable. There is nothing trite, no cliches, the screenwriting (by Laurie Craig) is at its best, original and highly creative.
The story, well, it flows along, happy at times and sometimes sad. Sometimes very, very happy, and sometimes very, very sad. But the outcome is one of the most beautiful and sensitive scenes I have ever seen in any film.
The acting: one of the country's most sterling actresses, Gena Rowlands, excels in her role as an eccentric, impulsive, loving and honest woman who befriends Paulie to the max. I believe the other great performance in the film was given by Tony Shalhoub, who has gone on to such great success since the making of this film. On watching "Paulie," one can easily see why. His performance is sensitive and touching, honest and just plain admirable.Read more ›

I saw this movie years ago and I loved it so much that I bought a parrot. You should never buy a pet because of a movie simply because it doesn't show how much work they are. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Frances Maroni
