I can't tell if this movie is a joke or not
Normally I wouldn't talk about a movie like this, but I have to get this little rant out. If you heard a movie was coming out with Diane Keaton (Morning Glory), Kevin Kline (Wild Wild West), Dianne Wiest (Edward Scissorhands), and Richard Jenkins (Step Brothers), you would assume it's going to be a good movie, right? What if I told you that the movie is directed and written by the guy that directed The Big Chill, and helped write Star Wars: Episode V and VI, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and The Bodyguard? Promising, right?
The movie starring this cast, and written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan, is Darling Companion. Darling Companion is the story of a woman (Keaton) who loves her dog more than her husband (Kline). And then... her husband loses the dog. A dog named Freeway -- which at first I thought was named Threeway. So it's all these people looking for a dog while discovering their own relationships and what's wrong with them. The entire trailer has awful music, laughable dialogue, poor acting (which I found most surprising), and an atrocious plot.
At one point, a woman says that the women in the family have a gift, and that she can see the dog. What... are... you... talking... about? How did the guy that worked on the script for The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and Raiders of the Lost Ark write this piece of s**t? How far has he fallen? The movie has old people talking about sex, which just comes off awkward.
All of these Academy Award winners just look silly acting out these stupid scenes and reading this stupid dialogue. The only positive thing I can say about is that Pete from The League is in it. That's all.
The best part about all of this -- it's labeled as Drama. GTFO. If this is a drama, then Homeward Bound is like The Pianist.
I'm predicting it as the Worst Film of 2012. If you don't believe me, watch the trailer for yourself.
