Overall, an effective film.
Then you have a character like Susan Tyrrell, who plays a single mother with all kinds of family dysfunctions such as the young daughter disliking the kind of fish sticks her mother serves so the little girl throws a hissy fit resulting in the mother handing her the food she wants while sitting the daughter on a couch in front of the TV (a spoiled kid obviously). Funny moment before this when she screams "DINNER'S READY!" right in her daughter's ear. What a... nevermind. Won't say it man!
I guess the older brother (Andras Jones) is an angry loner who turns out to be even angrier than we ever could have guessed (and even gets smacked across the face by his mom resulting in the boy leaving). Probably shouldn't take a bath though Susan! So yeah, about what I say about this movie not appearing dated... Susan's behavior is clearly a dated exaggerated trademark of the 80's. She's just weird man!
Then there's Drew Barrymore. Oh boy! Is it okay to find her attractive? After all she's only 14 but is portrayed to look 18. Back in the day it wasn't uncommon to show underage girls portraying a more mature woman in both appearance and attitude, but I think Far From Home takes such a portrayal to an unnecessary level. This movie does everything in its power to make Drew look as hot as possible. Mixed feelings with that.Read more ›

I enjoyed the movie, it is definitely not a blockbuster hit. I didn't think it was worth purchasing new so I purchased a used copy.Published on April 7, 2013 by Jake Allen
