William Hurt, John, " Kiss Of The spider Women ,"Altered States, is very funny as the (Off the beaten path restaurant gormet cook, owner.) Whose clientele is non existent? John is about to throw in the towel when his friend, Andy Jones(ll), (Phonce), comes up with an idea to get people for the restaurant.
He comes up with an idea of sighting a rare bird, Duck, in the ocean below the restaurant. The scheme and how they set it up is hilarious. Also Phonce has a paranoia re; people in motor homes and he thinks the're out to get him which is half right. There is a scene in a homemade submarine which Phonce built in his secret tunnel under his garage. A real hoot! There are frogmen, a CEO from a corp. trying to get an invention which Phonce's one time partner invented, sheet's of light hung up on clotheslines , with clothspins , in the tunnel.
The people start coming to eat, and John hires more staff and there is a love which develops between John and Alice. But things start to unravel and the laughs keep getting longer. The cinematography is great and the sun really does shine in New-Found-Land!!
True, it's not on the same Level as "Gone With The Wind" or "Saving Private Ryan"; but, then again, it wasn't trying to be! One Reviewer compared it to "Waking Ned Devine" or "Local Hero"; and, I have to agree with him, 100%!
It had a few good Characters, e.g., Dave [William Hurt], Phonse [Andy Jones] & Alice [Molly Parker]; a decent little Plot; and, it was over in 101 minutes. It was good Entertainment! And, what else are you looking for? If you want to be "Moved", or if you're looking for a Life Altering Experience, watch a Tele-a-thon!
