Unoriginal Hollywood woke fest. Pushing lgbt propaganda, weak males, etc, etc. Deceptive trailer did not show the garbage. Skip.

This one really touched me. So incredibly well done. I am getting a little misty writing this as I think back on the story. And I am a 52 year old Het-Cis-White guy…

It’s a bit of a cliche story and different from the original novel this movie is adapting.

Like mixing a teaspoon of dog crap into a batch of brownies. Lotta good but the little bit of crap nearly ruins the whole mix.

Loved the movie. Great acting, great story. Not too long.. I think the supporting actors were also fantastic. Would t be surprised if they are nominated for awards next year. Great start to 2023..

Good movie. A friend warned me that it was an emotional movie and she was right. It is not what you think it is from the ads. Some of it plays just like you’d think after seeing the trailer BUT there’s so much more to the story than that and it’s worth a watch. It made me tear up from sadness and happiness. I haven’t laughed while crying at the same time in a long time.

As always, Tom Hanks is in there pitching, but this time it’s mostly softballs. The cliched plot about a reformed grumpy old man is so obvious you can see it from outer space.

A Man Called Otto is not only more bloated than the Swedish film, it’s more outré, in a way that’s hard to pin down.

There’s laying it on thick, there’s laying it on with a trowel, and there’s laying it on like A Man Called Otto.
