4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the cynics of this world!, 22 April 2006
By 
This review is from: Elizabethtown [DVD] (DVD)
I can't believe EVERYONE has slagged this off! No, Orlando Bloom is not the world's most articulate actor. Yes, this may be a bit of a departure for Kirsten Dunst. No, it's probably not Cameron Crowe's best film. But it's far from the awful, eye-gouging dreariness that people seem to be trying to convince everyone it is.

Obviously, I'm a bit out-numbered here, so logic would dictate maybe you should rent it or borrow it before buying it. But it has got heart, and some genuinely comedic moments. It's basically about one guys journey from being virtually alienated from his family, living in a very emotionally shallow world, to finding himself and having a purpose in life.

Yes, the overall theme of it is a bit soppy, and if you thrive on thought-provoking, convention-questioning endings then you won't be satisfied. But if you want a warm, feelgood, redemption movie, (maybe "redemption" is a bit too dramatic, but you'll get what I mean), then please give it the time it deserves and take it for a spin.
