The Story of Us 15 Oct 99

What a load of crap. The promising trailer full of montages fools you into expecting depth... when all you get are more montages. The screenplay combines the worst of daytime talk (generic fights with unclear starts and zero resolution between generic people you know nothing about, even by the end of the show) and the worst of evening sitcoms (unfunny 'friend' characters with unfunny 'funny' advice) and makes you pay eight bucks and two hours of your life to see it. If I want to waste time and money on 'entertainment' this shallow, I've already got cable. D-

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
