Can't go wrong with this purchase!
The story is so sad, yet happy and amusing at the same time. I wish it didn't end how it does (i wont give it away), but apart from that, i can't fault it.
Julie Walters deserved her BAFTA, but the whole cast was incredible. Paul Reiser was hilarious and portrayed the characters emotions perfectly. And then, of course, there's Amy Robbins who shines in everything and can do no wrong.
If you haven't seen this yet, then stop whatever else you're doing and see it.
I seriously have to take a star away from the rating based on the ending. I almost never do that because I believe the quality of the writing is what matters most in a movie, but this is clearly an exception. You don't toy with viewers emotions and then leave them hanging like this. What were the writers thinking, seriously!?!? I want to know if the man lives or dies.
Anyway Strange Relations is a movie about a man played by Paul Reiser who's dying of leukemia. For a while he's falling asleep while talking to people (since he's a New York psychiatrist for a living) and he can't figure out why. His friend John Goodman... er no, George Wendt tries to offer help and support but Paul's too darn stubborn to listen to reason. It turns out after a doctor visit that he has terminal cancer. To not help matters at all, when he reveals to his impatient and always on-the-go mother that he has leukemia, she makes a bombshell announcement- he's not really her son! His REAL mother lives in England. What a double shot of terribleness. That would be enough to make me lose my marbles and punch a hole in a wall. Well the leukemia itself would be enough to make me punch a hole in a wall- the part about finding out that the woman who raised me for nearly 40 years wasn't really my mother would be devastating in a different life-changing kind of way.
Turns out Paul takes the trip to England to find his real birth mother. There's always that "What's going to happen!?" in these type of movies. You know, sometimes the mother doesn't want to believe her son finally came back to her all these years later and closes the door.Read more ›
