Editorial Reviews

Fresh-squeezed laughs and sexy fun sweeten this critically-acclaimed comedy with an all-star cast, including Leighton Meester, Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt and Catherine Keener. What does it take to be truly happy? Two suburban families are about to find out when the Ostroffs' rebellious daughter Nina (Meester) returns home and starts an adulterous affair with long-time family friend David Walling (Laurie.) The outrageous scandal reaches a hilarious new heights during the holidays and makes these New Jersey neighbors tear apart more than just wrapping paper. Love is a wrecking ball headed straight for The Oranges...and it may just change all of their lives forever.

Format: DVD
"The Oranges" (2012 release; 90 min.) brings the story of two married couples living across the street from each other. There is Terry and Cathy Ostroff (played by Oliver Platt and Allison Janney). Terry and Cathy are best friends with David and Paige Walling (played by Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener), whose marriage is not going well and whose twenty-something yr. old daughter Vanessa still lives with them. This is in sharp contrast with Terry and Cathy's daughter (and Vanessa's childhood friend) Nina (played by Leighton Meester), who is living "la vida loca" in San Francisco. Things go unexpectedly sour for Nina who, tails between her legs, moves in with her parents. The two families are enjoying their time together, until Nina and David develop a crush on each other (despite their significant age difference). At that point we are about one-third into the movie, and to tell you more of the plot would simply ruin your viewing experience. But as you can well imagine, all kinds of crazy situations develop from there, some of them funny, others bittersweet, and yet other moments outright sad.

Several comments: Hugh Laurie (yes, he of the "House" TV series) shows again with this performance how versatile he really is. (Remember a year ago he released an album "Let Them Talk", which was critically well-received.) I'm sure it had to be a relief for Laurie to be playing a character so vastly different from "House". However, Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt also bring choice performances. It's difficult to assess Leighton Meester, as it is hard to make that leap of faith to see what she sees in David, who is twice her age.

I had never heard of this movie until I randomly came across it on Amazon. Between the cast and description, had to give it a try. My wife and I were not disappointed. It is well worth a watch.

The cast is very funny. If you have seen any of these actors in previous films (and I am sure you have), the characters they play are exactly what you would expect. Given the quality of the actors, this is not a bad thing.

The movie offers a critique of suburbanism and consumerism without being as heavy-handed or blatant as something like American Beauty. While a comedy, it also is not as ridiculous as some other films with similar vents. The characters reflect on who they are and how they feel about their lives. Note that this is not a particularly romantic movie, although it would be good to watch on a date.

The Oranges is definitely worth the time and/or financial investment.

While this wasn't the greatest movie ever made, it definitely was solid. With a lot of movies I watch, I find myself stopping and starting the DVD every once in awhile as I get distracted by something else. So, for me to watch a movie from start to finish without interruptions is a rarity. This was one of those movies.
The plot is solid and believable, the dialogue is solid and believable, the characters are (for the most part) solid and believable, and the acting is strong from start to finish. Again, definitely "worth a look."
No real weaknesses anywhere, which sounds like "faint praise," but really isn't, because so many movies these days have glaring weaknesses. So it really is nice to watch a movie that doesn't have any weak spots - makes it very enjoyable and satisfying to watch.

Format: DVD
This is another feel good, feel awkward, sometimes humorous indie. The beginning of the film establishes the characters of the six main players. Two families are best friends. They do everything together, but not all is well. David Walling (Hugh Laurie) has been sleeping on the couch. His daughter Vanessa (Alia Shawkat) does some first person narration. Growing up she was best friends with Nina (Leighton Meester) who is part of the second family. Unlike Vanessa, Nina is a free spirit and Vanessa sees her as the antagonist.

Nina breaks up with her boyfriend and comes home for Thanksgiving after two years. The parents hope to fix her up with Toby Walling (Adam Brody), but Nina has suddenly developed a taste for older men, older married men who sleep on the couch. They are quickly discovered and the film goes into a mild disaster mode with crude comments from Nina's mom (Allison Janney) and snarky remarks from the hurt Vanessa.

The film had some funny parts, but for the most part it simply makes you smile at the awkward situation. The characters were well developed. The dialouge was decent. It has appeal and is worth a view, at least once. Leighton Meester did a great job.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Some crude sex talk.

This movie doesn't know what it wants to be. Does it want to be a May-December romance? Does it want to be a whacky comedy? Is it a naturalistic view of growing up and older around your friends? Is it a tragedy? Is it a coming of age movie? Tune it at any moment in this movie and it's something else. Two lovers can share a scene and it will be followed by a stalker ex-boyfriend showing up or a wife driving over everything. There will be a sad "you betrayed me" scene but then there's a vibrator joke.

Still the main problem isn't the confusion over the plotting but the lack of chemistry between Hugh Laurie and Leighton Meester as the Woody Allen/Soon-Yi couple that throw everything into an uproar. In a better script or a better directed movie, they might pass as a couple of people who find each other and fall in love. In this movie, they are purely a plot contrivance. No one wants to see them together, least of all the actors. So much of the movie is about everyone being angry at them for being together, that any explanation as to WHY they are together is lost.

And that's an awfully glaring omission. No romantic comedy should get away with the "well they are both attractive white people so why not?" laziness, but several do and audiences accept the contrivances from sheer goodwill. However, there is a world of difference between Katherine Heigl and the male lead "falling in love" in a series of whacky adventures and this movie where the reasons NOT to get together are much more compelling than "they meet cute but she's a career woman and he's a manchild." She's the daughter of his best friends. He knew her as a child. His daughter is her best friend and his son is in love with her.
