Rachel Getting Married–Hated it!

I like Anne Hathaway, and was looking forward to seeing her in her Oscar-nominated role. I had to turn Rachel Getting Married off about 45 long minutes into the movie, however. The Jonathan Demme (who should know better) film is painful to watch–not because Hathaway’s character is just out of rehab, but because the actors, including the usually interesting Hathaway, are so precious and annoying. Precious is the word that kept running through my head over and over again: precious, self-consciously improvised dialogue. Precious mugging by the miscast Bill Irwin as Hathaway’s father. Precious mugging by everybody in the unending wedding rehearsal scene. Bleahhh, as Snoopy would say.
