What are people saying?

  • SpacePirate's rating of the film The Old Fashioned Way

    One of Field's best comedies, plus you get to see his amazing juggling skills at the end! (extra star added for this) Not much to say as the story feels similar to another Field's vehicle, Poppy, but all the hallmarks of his unique comic vision are here on display: unique verbal humor, the young daughter he loves, being surrounded by slightly bumbling offbeat characters. The only thing missing is the henpecking wife.
