  • Man In The Moon - Teenage angst in the 50's

    Jul 15, 2012 by ladyconsumer is a Lead on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lovely performances, very touching story.
    Cons: Ending could have been stronger.

    Summary: It’s a very sweet, very touching movie that takes you back to another time.  In both senses of the phrase - back the simpler-than-now 50’s, and also back to your teenage years. I’m talking about Man In The Moon, ... read more

  • Reese Witherspoon's very impressive debut

    Mar 4, 2007 by Stephen_Murray is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies

    Pros: Witherspoon, London, atmosphere
    Cons: lack of development of other characters

    Summary: "The Man in the Moon" (1991, directed by Robert Mulligan, 4.3 stars) is a quiet masterpiece. In her screen debut, Reese Witherspoon (El ection, Walk the Line) made a big impact as Dani, a 14-year-old in rural Louisiana ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's graceful, well-written, well-acted, quietly dramatic, and allows all the characters to have depth.
    Cons: It cheats - just once, but still.

    Summary: Man in the Moon, a 1991 movie starring Sam Waterston as the strict and taciturn 1950s-era father of a 14-year-old played by Reese Witherspoon, is not the same movie as Man _on_ the Moon, starring Jim Carrey as the comedian Andy Kaufman. The ... read more

    Pros: Lets you see Reese Witherspoon's talent before she became a star
    Cons: You can watch it 50 times and still cry at the end

    Summary: I can still remember the first time I watched this movie. A friend of mine had rented it for a sleepover we were having and I thought it sounded silly. My opinion had definitely changed by the time the credits were rolling. I'm not sure how well a ... read more

    Summary: 14 year old Dani (a young Reese Witherspoon) is a little frustrated with her life on a rural farm. Her favorite way to break the boredom is to take a dip in the pond on the next property. Since no one lives there, she has plenty of privacy and doesn't ... read more

    Pros: there were some funny parts
    Cons: it wasn't at all what i expected.

    Summary: I have to start out by saying that i am not a big Andy Kaughman fan, so therefore i really did not enjoy this movie. Basically "Man on the moon" is a movie about Andys life starting from childhood until his death. It ... read more

    Pros: Wonderful acting, beautiful story
    Cons: If you don't like to cry, don't view this film

    Cons: the special effects when Court dies
