Editorial Reviews

Cast your ballot for big laughs when Gene Hackman and Ray Romano find themselves in a hilariously heated race for mayor of Mooseport, Maine. A local plumber (Romano) is plunged into the national spotlight when he takes on the former President of the United States (Hackman), who can't believe he's running against the man installing his toilets! To make matters worse, the ex-prez is trying to steal the election -- and the affection of the handyman's girlfriend (Maura Tierney). Whoever wins, one thing's for sure: this town isn't small enough for the both of them!

This is what one might call a "work movie" or an excercise in filmmaking. WELCOME TO MOOSEPORT has an impressive cast from Ray Romano, Gene Hackman, Marcia Gay Harden, Maura Tierney, Rip Torn, and Fred Savage. However, the plot is predictable and the characters are one-dimensional. Hackman plays ex-President of the United States, Monroe Cole. He has retired to Mooseport, Maine and is asked by the local citizenry to run for a vacated Mayor's position. Then, he finds himself running against the local hardware store/plumber owner Handy Harrison played by Ray Romano. Then, the writers throw in a lame side-plot of Cole trying to win the heart of Handy's fiance (Tierney). Handy/Romano is so likeable and low-key in the movie that he gets lost amongst the townspeople and his co-workers at his hardware store during most of the movie. Hackman as ex-President Cole has the proverbial phoned-in performance. The real stand-out comedic performance is that of Fred Savage (tv's THE WONDER YEARS) as Coles's aid, Bullard. The most striking thing about the film is that there is no bite in the script and the dialogue is very bland as is the interaction of the characters. The production values and location shots are great in capturing the small town atmosphere, but that's all. Overall, a comedy/romance film that is just a vehicle to cash in on Ray Romano's tv persona. Therefore, it plays like a made-for-tv movie, it plays it too safe, and thus is a very forgettable tax write-off 20th Century Fox.

Format: DVD
Director: Donald Petrie
Cast: Gene Hackman, Ray Romano, Marcia Gay Harden, Maura Tierney, Christine Baranski, Fred Savage, Rip Torn.
Running Time: 115 minutes.
Rated PG-13 for some language and gross elderly nudity (just an old man's behind).
"Welcome to Mooseport" has enough charm and some quirky moments to make those who are fans of Ray Romano's "Everybody Loves Raymond" television show giggle somewhat, but ultimately it is caught trying to be a comedy that does not have much scripted humor and relies too much on Romano to get laughs just because of his fame. Gene Hackman is well-casted as Monroe "Eagle" Cole, one of the most famed former Presidents of the United States of America, who has moved to the small Maine town of Mooseport due to a sloppy divorce that left him without his Baltimore home. Ray Romano stars as Handy Harrison (who happens to be a handy man-go figure), a goofball that knows the ins-and-outs of the town, but does not know when to commit to his long-time girlfriend Sally (Maura Tierney).
When Mooseport's mayor suddenly passes away, "Eagle" Cole is asked to take on the assignment. He accepts, but only because of the good public press he would receive. Handy Harrison names himself a candidate as well when Cole asks Sally out for a date, leading both men into a sequence of idiosyncratic campaign stunts that involve televised mayoral debates (?) and golf matches to win over women. "Welcome to Mooseport" is a film that is enjoyable for younger teenagers and adults that grew up watching Hackman during his prime, but ultimately it is an unfunny attempt to draw on the success of "Everybody Loves Raymond". Romano is actually the weaker of the two lead stars, either because he was not given the ability to shine in a somewhat limited role, or because in reality his television show is a triumph because of his overwhelmingly talented supporting cast in the first place. An average film and that is being generous.

Simply put, Mooseport is a bad movie. Far fetched, not funny, slow-paced and boring. A waste of 90 minutes of my life. This is why this movie went straight from the theaters to DVD and HBO. Ray Romano's poor acting (as "Handy" the plumber) in particular ruined the movie. Romano was dull, lifeless and easy to root against. If it was not for Gene Hackman, who as usual, does a great job, I would have quit after the first 30 minutes. If you want to check this out, I would wait until the DVD hits the 5 dollar rack at your local Wal-mart/Target.

One year removed from the cinematic perversion known as "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," director Donald Petrie presents to the movie-going public a film guaranteed to coochie-coo the funny bone a smidgen. Starring Gene Hackman as Monroe Cole and Ray Romano as Handy Harrison, "Welcome to Mooseport" isn't quite Luis Buñuel or Woody Allen. The film's still a hoot, although it's more barn owl than great horned owl.

The film revolves around the mayoral race pitting the most popular former president, Monroe "Eagle" Cole, and the region's plumbing messiah, Handy "Dandy" Harrison, in a diminutive New England township known fittingly as Mooseport. (The community has a domesticated moose as its mascot.)

The reason for Cole's presence in Mooseport is that the former first lady has robbed him of millions in savings as well as his permanent residence, forcing him to flee to his vacation home. After a cordial reception, the locals urgently suggest Cole run for the position of town mayor.

Considering what this might do to boost his favorability even more with the masses - and to raise a little dough for a library in his honor - Cole accepts. What Cole didn't realize is that a local man named Harrison is also a candidate for the job. The following morning, yelps of "David vs. Goliath!" can be heard emanating from the press.

Because "Eagle" Cole would never retreat after giving his word, he beckons Harrison to withdraw from the race to preserve Mr. President's relationship with the public. There's only one problem: Cole has inadvertently asked Harrison's honey of six years out on a date. As it turns out, Harrison's veterinarian girlfriend is fed up with his failure to mouth the matrimonial question. The dash for mayor of Mooseport is on.
