A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006)

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006)

I had never even heard of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints until I rented Charlie Countryman (2013) at the Redbox.  When you rent Charlie Countryman, you get A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints as a bonus movie.  They give you a two-for-one, a double sided disc for the price of one movie.  It’s a Shia LaBeouf double feature.  They are both indie films.  This was all the more intriguing to me, so I watched each movie the other night.  You can guess what one of my next reviews will be.

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints Group

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints was based on the book with the same title.  Surprisingly enough, the man who wrote the book, Dito Montiel, also directed the movie.  The movie is a film adaptation of Dito Montiel’s life growing up in Astoria, New York in the 1980s.  The story is a look into a messed up childhood in a rough part of the city.  It follows the struggles of inner city teenagers, Dito (Shia LaBeouf plays young Dito, and Robert Downey Jr. plays grown up Dito) and his friends as they are becoming adults.  The circle of friends are pitted against drugs, violence, sex, love, hate, loss, and hardship.  All the while, Dito wants to escape New York and try to make a better life for himself somewhere else.

The rest of the noteworthy cast includes Channing Tatum, Chazz Palminteri, Dianne Wiest, Rosario Dawson, Melonie Diaz, Martin Compston, Scott Michael Campbell, Anthony DeSando, Adam Scarimbolo, Peter Anthony Tambakis, Laila Liliana Garro, and Eric Roberts.

I’m surprised that this movie got past me 8 years ago, because the cast is excellent.  I should have been aware of this film earlier.  It’s another low-budget independent film that slipped through the cracks.

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints was hard to watch, at times, but it was also hard to stop watching.  The film was an excellent depiction of how rundown certain areas of the country can be and how it affects the people living there.  It’s indeed unfortunate, but it’s in-your-face honesty.  Some people won’t be able to handle the honesty of this movie.  The trashy characters, obscene language and other vulgarity, along with the sex, nudity, and mindless violence, among other things, will be too much for some.

But, you have to take the sweet from the sour.  There is indeed a silver lining in this story.  The headlining actors in this film are exceptional.  The movie makes you feel like you are in the slums with the characters experiencing it all.  The actors portray a remarkable friendship and camaraderie that helps you come back to the reality that people often try to be good even if they are bad.

The story is rigid and rocky, but the writing and acting make it all worthwhile.  Here is an unknown gem for those who are willing to give it a chance.

Stuck in Love (2012)


Stuck in Love Poster

Stuck in Love (2012)

 

Occasionally a love story that is not a “chick flick”, but looks like one, will fall through the cracks.  Stuck in Love looked like one of those stories.  The movie falls through the cracks because people assume it is a “chick flick” and they dismiss it immediately.  I almost did the same thing because I’m not a fan of “chick flicks.”  I’m not a fan of
“chick flicks” because well, I’m not a chick.

Chick flicks” are so prevalent in the movie world these days that they are like a cancer that has spread.  They are everywhere and their whole existence is killing the industry that they thrive on.

Stuck in Love Kinnear Connelly

Stuck in Love is a dysfunctional drama about a semi-popular author (Greg Kinnear) who finds himself unable to get over his ex-wife (Jennifer Connelly), even after being divorced for more than 2 years.  His son and daughter, who are also writers, are having their own struggles with love.

The film was written and directed by Josh Boone and the rest of the noteworthy cast includes Lily Collins, Kristen Bell, Logan Lerman, Nat Wolff, Liana Liberato, Stephen King, and Patrick Schwarzenegger.

I have always enjoyed movies about writers, because I have always wanted to be a writer.

Stuck in Love Lerman Collins

The movie is only slightly formulaic and just a little bit predictable.  It is not like “chick flicks” that are completely predictable because they always follow the same formula.

The film is rated-R for language, drug use, sexual situations, and adult drama.  The movie is as much a teen drama as it is an adult drama.

There is a lot of language in the film, but that has become reality.  You would like to think that people don’t always talk that way, but that is how it really is.  We are a society that has become de-sensitized and the absence of language in the movie would have made it less realistic and less practical.

Stuck in Love Wolff Liberato

I was a little surprised when watching this movie because I thought it was going to be more about the parents in the story, rather than the kids.  When, in fact, the film was just as much about the adults as it was about the kids.

The young actors in the movie did a better job than I anticipated.  However,
the presence of Kinnear and Connelly help to make Stuck in Love a quirky, heart warming drama worth watching.

Once again, my dysfunctional childhood was probably the reason why I was drawn to this movie.  Maybe it is just because I can relate to the craziness that is going on in the movie and that is why I like it.  Growing up as the youngest in a big family, it’s hard to avoid the drama.  Maybe that is why the movie seems more real to me, because dysfunction is more honest than perfection.  Madness is more entertaining than predictability.

I rate this move a 7.5 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  Rent.

If you liked Stuck in Love, then you may also enjoy The Big Wedding (2013), Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011), and The Way, Way Back (2013).

The Way, Way Back (2013)


The Way Way Back Poster 2

The Way, Way Back (2013)

Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell both have the ability to be really funny and that is why I thought that The Way, Way Back could be hilarious.  If both of those guys are in the same movie together than it is bound to make you laugh right?

THE WAY, WAY BACK

The movie is about Duncan, a timid 14-year-old boy (Liam James) who is dragged along on a summer vacation with his mother (Toni Collette), her jerk of a boyfriend (Steve Carell), and her boyfriend’s daughter (Zoe Levin).  In order to escape the awkwardness, Duncan ventures off on his own to a nearby water park where he befriends Owen (Sam Rockwell) the manager, and gets a summer job.

The film was written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.  The rest of the noteworthy cast includes Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, Amanda Peet, River Alexander, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash.

The Way Way Back Rockwell James

The film did not have a very promising start, and I was worried that it was not going to get any better.  It was a stale dysfunctional drama until Sam Rockwell made his appearance and saved the day, and the movie.  Rockwell turned the film into a “dramedy” and made it worth watching.  The film literally went from awful to entertaining as if Rockwell had just flipped a switch.

Unfortunately, Carell’s character was not funny at all.  Carell is usually pretty excellent when he is in a comedic role, but when his character is all drama, he is hardly likable.

The Way Way Back Dinner Table

The movie was a good story of how uncomfortable life can be sometimes with a divorced parent who is dating again.  Maybe being a child of divorced parents myself, I related to the movie a little bit more than others might.  When you are a kid who is stuck dealing with a boyfriend or girlfriend of one of your parents whom you just don’t like or get along with, it is nice to be able to escape with your friends for support.  I was fortunate enough to be able to do that many times during my childhood.  That is what this movie is about and that is what this movie does a good job depicting.

The Way Way Back Party

It’s not the funniest movie in the world and it’s not the greatest, but it is a touching story that should make you laugh.

I rate this movie a 7 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  Rent.

If you liked The Way, Way Back, then you will most likely enjoy:

The Big Wedding (2013)


The Big Wedding poster

The Big Wedding (2013)

I come from a very dysfunctional family, but I am sure that we all do in one way or another.  So maybe that is why I am drawn to dysfunctional movies.

The Big Wedding is about a couple that must pretend to be married even though they have been divorced for a very long time.  Their adopted son is getting married and the family is reuniting for the wedding, but his birth mother is unaware that his adopted parents were ever separated.

The Big Wedding Keaton De Niro birth family

The film was directed by Justin Zackham and the noteworthy cast includes Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Surandon, Topher Grace, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Ben Barnes, Robin Williams, Christine Ebersole, David Rasche, Patricia Rae, and Ana Ayora.

The movie is inappropriate from the very first scene and delightfully dysfunctional throughout.

The Big Wedding Surandon Keaton De Niro

The film revolves more around the families of the groom and bride rather than the groom and bride themselves.  That is what the movie actually has going for it because instead of being a sappy love story, it is more about the harsh reality of the lives of the family attending the wedding.

It’s very amusing to see acting legends De Niro, Keaton, Surandon, and Williams all in the same film together and all as awesome as ever.

There are tons of laughs to be had in this film.  From the awkwardness of a divorced couple acting like they are married to the funny insults back and forth between siblings and the jokes that get lost in translation with the adopted kid’s foreign birth family.

The Big Wedding Grace Heigl

The humor is raunchy and there is a lot of language.

I laughed harder than I thought I would.  The Big Wedding was a pleasant surprise.  It was hilarious, witty, messed up, heartfelt, and dysfunctional.  It was just like family should be, or at least how my family is.

The Big Wedding De Niro

The film appears like it could be a chick flick, but don’t be fooled.  It was just a pure comedy.

I rate this movie an 8 on a scale of 1-10.

Buy, rent, or run?  Buy.

If you liked The Big Wedding, then you will most likely enjoy:

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)


Crazy, Stupid, Love. Poster

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

Crazy, Stupid, Love. is one of the better “dramadies” that I have seen in a while.

Sweet-talking ladies man Jacob (Ryan Gosling) takes newly, almost single Cal (Steve Carell) under his wing and tries to help him get back out into the dating scene.  This sets off a dysfunctional chain reaction in both of their lives and hilarity ensues along with craziness, stupidity, and love.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. Gosling Carell

The film has just the right blend of laughs and drama.  It may go a little overboard in one direction or the other at times, but that just helps to capitalize on the subject matter and keep the film exciting.

Carell does better when more comedy is involved and Gosling is more of a serious actor.  Both actors’ styles complemented each other very well and I think that working together enabled them each to go a little bit out of their comfort zones as to what is usually the norm for them.  Gosling pulled off being funny and Carell managed to get serious.  Carell has proved that serious doesn’t usually work for him (i.e.  Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (2012)), but it did in Crazy, Stupid, Love.  Gosling didn’t become a comedian by any means.  He has always managed to be pretty witty and clever, but he added funny to the mix.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. Gosling funny Carell Serious

The movie also has strong female characters played by Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, and Marisa Tomei.  Each woman was able to bring a level of wholesomeness to their roles with a touch of quirkiness.  This complemented the film quite well and helped to make it a bit unpredictable.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. Moore Stone

Other supporting cast includes Kevin Bacon, Analeigh Tipton, Jonah Bobo, Joey King, Beth Littleford, John Carroll Lynch, Josh Groban, and Liza Lapira.

Josh Groban proved that he should stick to singing and leave the acting to the actors.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. Groban Stone

The film was directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.

If you are looking for a good date movie (whether you are married or not), look no further than Crazy, Stupid, Love.  It is humorous and touching at the same time.  It is not a “chick flick.”  It is a film that both men and women will enjoy.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. Gym
