This review is from: Reality Bites [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Now first of all dont get me wrong Ben Stiller is a good actor, he just happens to be one of the worst directors.
This was his first directing outing, and from the standard it should have been his last, most people see this film as a nice little 90's film, but even with an all star cast it lacks substance.
Winona Ryder plays a dippy little city girl troubled with her love life and swamped under with bill payments 'like that's original or interesting'.
Ben Stiller plays his typical kinda guy, easy to conform to the people around him business type.
but most of all i hate Ethan Hawk, great actor, but the single most annoying character's ever, he is egotistic, arrogant and makes his own pathetic life seem more interesting & worthwhile by pointing out other peoples foibles.
all in all you can buy this film if you want, but i seriously advice not doing so, you'll watch it once then put it in the loft to get dusty for years unless of course you never even finish the film.
