Grand Canyon revolved around six residents from different backgrounds whose lives intertwine in modern-day Los Angeles. At the center of the film is the unlikely friendship of two men from different races and classes brought together when one finds himself in jeopardy in the other’s neighborhood.

if i'm right it's an inappropriate response to get a headache in the presence of a miracle / as usual with kasdan - sometimes a letdown, but some parts of it are fantastically well written. steve martin is god in this
I expected to despise this about halfway in because it has all the Hollywood cliches imaginable plus a really shallow approach at multiple complex subjects. yet, by the end of the film I thought it was quite all right.
D'aucuns trouveront le propos convaincant, et diront que "Grand Canyon" est un bon film original et mis en scène avec grand talent, nous ne partageons pas ce point de vue, et de loin... www.cinefiches.com
It's fine. Decent performances, moral messages, standard contrivances somewhat balanced by moments of truth, however small. It's commentary on race isn't explored the way it could have been, and its perspective is more or less safe and traditional. The whole thing is rather traditional, which wouldn't bother me I suppose if I hadn't been exposed to so much inventive, impressive, original, and great cinema as of late.
A life changing experience and one of the most overlooked films of all time. Incredible casting, wonderful music score by James Newton Howard, a terrifi and plausible screenplay that would make Haggis and company feel ashamed of their "Crash". It's a positive and great experience.
