MovieSet Review ~ A Pick & A Pan

From Academy Award-Winning
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain)

SYNOPSIS: A film about beginnings of the epic and legendary Woodstock Festival, which took place in Bethel, New York in 1969. Based on the true story of Elliot Tiber and his family, who inadvertently played a pivitol role in making the famed Woodstock Music and Arts Festival into the happening that it was. When Elliot hears that a neighboring town has pulled the permit on a hippie music festival, he calls the producers thinking he could drum up some much-needed business for his parents’ rundown motel. Three weeks later half a million people are on their way to his neighbor’s farm in White Lake, New York, and Elliot finds himself swept up in a generation-defining experience that would change his life — and American culture — forever.

MY PICK: It took me back to another time and place that I remember well. I lived through the events and watched the news broadcasts. Although I didn’t go to Woodstock, I knew people who did, and the stories never quit. This movie has a whole new perspective on that remarkable festival that shook America. Release your inner hippie and see it.



Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Wood Harrelson and Steve Zahn

SYNOPSIS: Jennifer Aniston and Steve Zahn make for an adorable would-be couple in this romantic comedy. Aniston (THE BREAK-UP) stars as Sue, a saleswoman who stops into Mike’s (Zahn, SAHARA) motel on a sales trip. Business soon turns to pleasure, and the pair has a quick affair before she leaves. But after Sue’s departure, Mike realizes that his heart might have walked out the door with her, and he’s soon in quick pursuit.

MY PAN: What in the world were Jennifer Aniston, Woody Harrelson and Steve Zahn thinking? This is a totally sappy, unbelievable and dopey movie. It would be fiscally irresponsible to waste your money on this mess.



One response to this post.

  1. I’ve never seen either of these movies, but there aren’t many Aniston movies (out of the few I’ve seen), that I care for.
