He is not a disappointment in this movie either. The movie is filmed and set in Newfoundland. Having met Newfies in my own travels (and I mean this in a loving way) I found them to be wild, colorful and thinking off the beaten path as if they live on their own special planet that sees rhyme and reason different from those of us excluded from being a native of their island.
This movie is thoroughly entertaining and engaging with the weird wild wackiness of incredible but believable characters. The movie is so well done I could smell the ocean, taste the fish, savor the wine. William Hunt and the other actors serve up well defined eccentric characters. There is a lot of subtle comedy involved and the harebrained antics of the characters remind me of some of the colorful personalities I have met that hailed from Newfoundland.
I thoroughly enjoyed this fresh story that is unrivaled, unduplicated and whimsically entertaining.
I give it 5 tars for the unique and enjoyable entertainment value. It's a movie I could see again and again every year and still laugh out loud.
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!!

William Hurt is annoying and drags the movie down with what seems a half hearted performance in what came close to being a really fun movie.Published 29 days ago by Rod71
