I went into this thinking that it was going to be a quality film solely on the fact that it's directed by William H Macy. He's a fantastic actor, and he himself did well in the film, though, there was just something off about it. It had a few good chuckles there at the beginning and middle points, but the characters were engaging really at all, and didn't make me care about them enough to want to know what happens. The situations themselves, and a lot of the dialogue and the way it was performed, was fairly unbelievable and I didn't find myself identifying with any of the characters whatsoever. imagine if the roles were reversed, and Rosario's character with the middle aged man messing around with an 18 year old girl. Exactly. perhaps this could have worked as a stage performance, but it just didn't make a good film.
I didn’t like this movie! It was only 2 people in the movie theater.
Other than the luminous Dawson, who somehow manages to rise above the hackneyed material, none of the principal players emerge from this cinematic wreckage unscathed. Director Macy emphasizes the comedic aspects of the material in such overly broad fashion that Krystal begins to resemble a demented sitcom that could only have benefited from a laugh track.
The comic drama Krystal, marking William H. Macy’s third time out as a feature director, is so baffling that it must be appreciated at least for its ability to defy all logic.
Macy, working from a seriously stereotypical script by Will Aldis, achieves a mild level of madcap, here and there.
