MOVIE: About Schmidt

GUEST: Philly Mo Dee

NUTSHELL: After years of marraige, Jack Nicholson realises his wife ain’t Helen Hunt. He gets sad and spends hours driving in search of something along the way to his daughter’s wedding.

GOOD THINGS: Trailer dinner party. An unseen African orphan. No Sally Struthers. Kathy Bates screaming at someone off camera. Fun with waterbeds.

BAD THINGS: The road trip from Omaha to Denver seemed to be shot in real time. Wedding sequence and overall slice of Midwest life: Bleak Bleak Bleak.

FEATURES: Jack. Kathy Bates. Unrecognizeable Howard Hesseman. The chick from Next Stop Wonderland, one of those Dylan, Dermott, DB twins, and the nastiest mullet this side of Billy Ray Cyrus or for that matter, Billie Jean King (maybe even DB Sweeney).

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: Kathy Bates naked. Dermot Mulroney’s mullet.

NOTABLE: Kathy Bates has the audacity to be naked! Jack Nicholson actually playing someone sixty-six! Just Like Easy Rider, only there’s no Peter Fonda, Hippies, Motorcycles, or anything remotely cool.

BEST PART: It ended.

BEST LINE: Life is short Ngutu, and I’ve got to make every moment count.

CROWNS: 2 out of 5
