5.0 out of 5 stars Malcovich Malcovich, 15 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of Mice And Men [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
This was an enjoyable adaptation of Steinbeck's Classic, 'Of Mice and Men' but like most films the stuff it cut out tended to be humorous moments that made the book so delightful. Gary Sinise was an excellent George but I felt John Malcovich was a bit miscast in the role of Lenny. The book is very specific in its description of Lenny, 'behind him walked his opposite, a huge man shapeless of face'. Malcovich isn't really any of these. I also imagined Lenny as a much bigger man, perhaps the size of a Gerard Depardieu or Jaws from the Bond movies. Nevertheless the adaptation did work, largely because of the energy and enthusiasm of Sinise. Obviously they also had to cut out the hallucinatory scene involving Lenny and the Giant rabbit with his Aunt's voice, which was disappointing. But this is well worth a watch and you do warm to Malcovich's portrayal of the big man.
