Funny, Thoughtful Movie,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Oranges [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
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.
