A Dull And Lifeless Drama,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Brothers Mcmullen [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I had heard about this movie as it received a lot of critical praise. I finally got the chance to watch it, but was not impressed. The acting was fine, but I thought the film was incredibly boring and the screenplay was quite immature - not in the sense of the subject matter, but in the sense that it could have been written by a thirteen-year-old. I enjoyed watching Edward Burns in Saving Private Ryan, but in this film he came across as whiny and childish.
I feel that he needs a lot of practice before his directing and scriptwriting are any good.
