I personally loved this movie!!! By far one of the best comedies I've seen in a VERY long time! Then there are all these idiots who claim it was bland, very uninspired, poor acting, the only good thing about this movie is that Elizabeth Banks and Jessica Alba are hot! If these people had this low of an opinion about such a great movie, what are they going to say next? American Beauty sucks? or Juno? or Charlie Bartlett? Where is the limit with these people who think just because it wasn't very mainstream or nominated for all the awards? People need to come out of their caves and <more>
recognize a great movie when it appears! So it wasn't perfect, who cares? It was a good, fun, comedy that came out in the past few years that didn't totally suck! Okay, yeah, I know this comment is all over the place, repetitive, and all over the place, but it helped me vent my anger towards all the idiots in the world, so thanks for the time!
A man with no authority over his own life takes control-with some help from a kid with an authority issue. (by huntthejest)
I rarely comment on movies, but the previous reviewer seemed like a blathering idiot. This movie is excellent, not only acting-wise Eckhart's transformation is amazing, and keep an eye on that kid but the story is very real. It contains just enough over the top to remind us that it is, indeed, a dark comedy. But it definitely puts the humor in the right places. The film has a serious message, but a subtly hilarious tone. Though way out from mainstream "succesful" films it is splendidly done, and the ending leaves us inspired to action to better our own lives. Be who you want, <more>
and not what others expect. In the end, everyone respects him more for it.
I am very touched because this movie has a lot of messages. And Aaron Eckhart is very excellent acting in this movie. In the scene of swimming, I feel a lot of things and It comes to mind the movie titled "The Graduate 1967 ". It seems like this movie. First, this and that movie are finding the real identification and the hero is wandering about his life. and the angle of the camera is really good. It seems like the same swimming scene, but it's not same in each swimming. it's very deep message to me, that the life is not showing to others, it's yours so you find your <more>
way. I feel. Yes, that's great. and I really commend this movie.
I attended the World Premiere of "Bill" at the Toronto International Film Festival. That fact alone is actually surprising to me, as my viewing habits tend to lean towards dramas, and this is anything but. In fact, festivals this year have been weighed down by heavy films that are about as dark as they come. "Bill" could not be more different, and what a refreshing change and much-needed uplift is this all-out, unabashed comedy. Co-directed by the husband-wife team of Bernie Goldmann and Melissa Wallack who penned the script , "Bill" has all the elements <more>
required of the genre: characters to whom we can relate, a clever storyline, and laughs aplenty.Aaron Eckhart "Any Given Sunday," "Erin Brockovich," "Thank You for Smoking" is Bill, smack dab in the middle of a life becoming all-too familiar. His job is falling apart he begrudgingly works for his irascible father-in-law , his marriage is going to pieces, his body is going to pot, and, perhaps most horrifying, his hair is rejecting his head. Bill needs a change, fast, and is not-so-voluntarily signed up for a mentoring program at the local high school. He is teamed up with young Logan Lerman "The Butterfly Effect," "Hoot," "3:10 to Yuma" , who plays The Kid, literally Lerman's character is never identified by name , and the two join together in battle to fight the demons at the heart of Bill's midlife crisis.A magnificent ensemble cast including Elizabeth Banks, Timothy Olyphant, Jessica Alba, and Kristen Wiig and far too many more to mention are all up to the task of providing enough comedic fodder to fill several films. Discussing their characters in depth would be too revealing, and my policy is to allow the reader to find a synopsis elsewhere if desired. Ultimately the partnership between Bill and The Kid is what drives the story, and the chemistry between Eckhart and Lerman is central to the success of the film. And it works. The Kid is smart, streetwise, sexy or so he thinks , and has the self-confidence of someone thrice his age. In short, he's everything Bill aspires to be. It's a role-reversal device that's at the heart of many classic comedies, and Wallack's brilliant writing makes it work.Despite being an independent film read: low budget "Bill" has the look of a Hollywood movie. The design is bright and the sound and editing give it a crisp, bouncy feel. Best of all, the cinematography with Peter Lyons Collister at the helm is second to none. He's one of the best in the business, a classic comedy veteran, and it shows.It's always hard to single anyone out in a fine ensemble cast but in both screenings I attended Lerman stole the show. He unquestionably got the biggest laughs and was the crowd favorite. I hesitate to call him a newcomer, as at the tender age of 15 he already has 10 movies and 23 television episodes under his belt, but he's one to watch for and has a bright career ahead of him. But this is Eckhart's film to make or break, and his sense of comedic timing and puppy-like ability to elicit just the right amount of empathy from the audience create those touching moments that leave the viewer wanting more. And so I attended the second screening as well, and enjoyed it even more. And that's the true test of a comedy. From this writer's perspective, "Bill" not only hits its mark but is also sure to be a winner for years to come.
Looks like everyone completely missed the point. (by dellitoso)
There's two stories here, the one for public consumption, and the underlying subtext -- the part most people completely miss.*sigh* A cursory review of "red flags" that might have tipped you off: 1 Young, svelte boy in revealing scenes shower, underwear and close, intimate physical contact with main character.2 Gay brother and mate feature prominently.3 Main character shaves body.4 Main character hadn't banged his hot wife in six months and couldn't get it up see deleted scenes .5 A brief shot of main character and boy holding hands.It's about a closeted gay <more>
Bill or Meet Bill is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen lately and it goes a bit beyond entertainment... So, who is Bill? Bill is someone who suddenly realizes he has a miserable life, he's in his 40's married to a beautiful woman, but who is cheating on him,his body is seriously unfit which causes a major lack of confidence and self esteem and on top of that he hates his job and the fact that he is working to his father-in-law. Not hard to relate,right?Bill almost against his will ends up joining a mentoring program and becomes the mentor of a 15 year old kid and <more>
that's when it all starts.Obviously the kid turns out to be the real mentor in the relationship, he is smart, he is sexy, he is absolutely confident and like bill says in the end he has it all figured out. The cast is great, but Aaron Eckhart and Logan Lerman are undeniably amazing and so is their chemistry on screen. I am not sure what Eckhart does but the audience myself included always love his characters, just watch Thank You For Smoking. And Logan, wow, the kid is talented, he acts like he is 18, not 15 or 16.I have to mention the BEAUTIFUL Elizabeth Banks, she was very good in her role and of course,Jessica Alba, who lightened up the screen.Bill doesn't fit into comedy neither into drama .It has many elements of both genres and its exactly what a movie should be. Surprises me the poor rating...8.5/10
---SPOILER ALERT---This critique discusses the end of the movie.I shouldn't be writing about this movie as I do NOT like comedies. I'd never heard of "Meet Bill" until I was desperately trying to find some movies to put in my Netflix queue for the week. I saw this new film listed, starring Aaron Eckhart, who, IMO, KNOWS how to pick good scripts and is a favorite actor whom I enjoy and admire. When the DVD arrived in the mail today, I was not in the mood for a comedy, but I slid it in my DVD tray anyway, I watched about the first five minutes standing up to make an exit into <more>
the kitchen...but instead, I sat down and started enjoying, as well as laughing out loud, at this wonderful little independent comedy. I hadn't read a synopsis, so I really couldn't outguess the screenwriter where the plot was headed. Then I got the clue where we were about to go and how the movie would probably end...but NO! The movie just ended without giving any of us a clue what was going to happen. Ten more minutes...even FIVE...a paragraph, ONE LINE...SOMETHING...I mean it IS a comedy for crying out loud...where's the comic ending? I'll bet there's a couple of dozen yards of film on the cutting room floor which would have pleased me and everyone else and who knows, it might have been a hit. It's really a good film that leads the audience to a cliff and there's no more road. Even an alternate ending on the DVD would have been fantastic! Now I have to wonder if this is the real reason why I hate comedies? The kid playing 'The Kid", Logan Lerman is gonna be a huge star. He and Aaron made a great team. He has NO inhibitions for his age and all but walks away with the movie from more experienced actors. The ending written for "The Kid" sucked as well. If I MISSED At this point, I don't know if he and Elizabeth stayed together...what was he going to do about a job? Anyone have any ideas?
