Alexander Payne United States, 2002

Jessica McFarland's rating of the film About Schmidt

The acting and production value was good, but the story line just didn't do it for me. Just a strange plot that ended up feeling like a 2-hour commercial for sponsoring a child. Contrary to some of the other reviewers, I feel like this movie is VERY overrated. I was expecting greatness, and in the end I was just a little puzzled and let down. Maybe go into it with lower expectations...?
