How do u comeback from continuous bad Adam Sandler movies? By making The Fundamentals Of Caring. (by marash2315)
First let me say that I don't write reviews on IMDb often but after watching this movie and seeing how little reviews it has I had to write one. Just so that if there is any other soul looking here all confused if he/she should watch this movie or not. WATCH IT. JUST GO WATCH IT.Alright, so plot wise it doesn't have lot of characters who just pop in and out. It has a very simple story with simple cast doing simple things and that's the beauty of it. There is no over the top emotional scenes where the cast try hard to make you feel sad but there are simple doses of heartwarming <more>
scenes sprinkled throughout the movie which made my eyes wet. The cast was amazing. I have always liked Paul Rudd and have seen his range when it comes to acting but still he managed to surprise me in this movie. I did not expect anything from Selena Gomez but she tries and pulls of the role she is given. Craig Roberts does an excellent job like in the movie submarine which I obviously came to know after I watched the movie with the thought "this guy looks very familiar. Where have I seen him before" running in my head the entire time. . There are two more main cast members whom I don't want to mention and give away story details does real justice to their characters too.I didn't know the director either but he has done a really good job with this one.All in all a really good movie. A must watch I would say. And ya, THUMBS UP to NETFLIX for making this movie.
Very rarely do I get attached to characters like I did in this film (by ballinkywitzki)
First of all, I'd like to say that I am a fan of character development. Many good movies aren't great because their characters lack a real sense of attachment. The fundamentals of caring nails it on the head. Paul Rudd is a work of art in this film and quite frankly that surprised me. Selena Gomez pleasantly perfected her role as well which surprised me even more. I am not placing any spoilers but I will tell you that it shouldn't matter what type of movies you typically enjoy, you SHOULD enjoy this one. I am a 23 year old male, and an Army Vet so you would expect a guy like me to <more>
be into more manly macho movies. Well you'd be right. But as a fan of art and emotion, I respect movies like this. You will feel a way with the story that brings you everything from joy, laughter, pain, guilt and even fear. Its an emotional roller-coaster ride and I'll be riding it again in the front seat every time. Must watch movie hands down. I'll even say you should subscribe to Netflix even if it's only for one month just to see this movie. This definitely makes its way on my top 10, easily.
A simply simple movie that's a great watch (by agsteribbe)
This is a simple road trip movie with a handicapped teenager and his caregiver that build a relationship as the movie progresses. They aim to visit the worlds largest hole in the ground.This in itself does not sound like much but the performances from the actors and, to my utter surprise , the absolute naturalness of Ms. Gomez make this movie work really well.Strange how hard it is to say something about a movie that does everything right and has a surprise performance by someone you don't expect it from. I fell in love with her during this movie and i think she will be a great actress in <more>
years to come.As was the performance of Roberts and the short but very well played part of the pregnant girl. Of course Rudd was good as always. Are Roberts and Selena the new half of the new breakfast club ? I certainly hope so. Way to go Ms. Gomez, impressed !
This film demonstrates that 'direct to Netflix' is NOT a bad thing at all. (by MartinHafer)
A few days ago, I watched a horrid film that was produced for Netflix..."The Do-Over". So, when I saw the latest film to come directly to Netflix, "The Fundamentals of Caring", I was very apprehensive about it. Would it be yet another sub-par film or would it show that Netflix can make a product every bit as good as you'd see from larger and more traditional outlets? Fortunately, it a very good film and I am glad I forced myself to watch it.The film stars Paul Rudd as Ben, a man whose life is in shambles. His marriage is over and his child has died. To deal with his <more>
grief and failing career as a writer, he decides to become a home health aid...a rather low paying and thankless job. His first assignment is an interesting one...Trevor Craig Roberts . Trevor is not a typical movie young man with a disability, as he's neither noble nor a complete jerk....the two stereotypes that seem rampant when films actually bother to show disabled characters. Instead, he's incredibly sarcastic...and some of this sarcasm is his way of dealing with disappointments and fears. In this sense, he and Ben actually have a lot in common as both are afraid to get on with their lives. But it's important Trevor do something, as his Muscular Dystrophy means a shortened life...and Ben hopes to put some more 'life' into that life. So he plans a bizarre roadtrip...a trip to see some of the kitschy roadside sites in America. In particular, a long trip to see the world's deepest granite pit! While this hardly sounds exciting, the trip offers quite a few twists and exciting turns...including their hooking up with a foul- mouthed young lady Selena Gomez and a pregnant women trying to get home before her baby arrives Megan Ferguson .The film is a delightful slice of life...and I hardly ever use the word 'delightful'....so pay attention! Much of this is because the script by writer/director Rob Burnett does a great job of avoiding the usual clichés as well as making the characters and dialog interesting. The story is based on a novel by Jonathan Evison and the cast do a great job of bringing his story to life. In particular, I absolutely loved the job done by Roberts as Trevor...he was just terrific and manages to more than hold his own opposite a strong and capable performance by Rudd. The fact that Rudd was so good was no surprise. The fact a relatively unknown actor does a great job and isn't overshadowed by him is. As for Gomez, she is also quite good. However, I should warn folks expecting the nice Disney Channel star, as here she is very hard- edged and her vocabulary is decidedly non-Disney!! Overall, it's a very strong roadtrip film that left me very impressed and wanting more. Well worth seeing.
A really good film and amazing cast. (by nsomniac-80083)
If you have Netflix this is a movie you want to check out. It's a little dark but it will make you laugh and some times you might even see a piece of yourself in the main characters of the movie. Paul Rudd was really amazing in this film. His character was pretty real than most of his which are more comedy than drama. Craig Roberts an actor I have never seen was also amazing. Selena Gomez was a teenage girl with a lot of angst and trying to start over in life to get away from what she was.The relationship that Craig and Rudd had in the movie was amazing their friendship was extremely <more>
powerful.They both needed each other and in the end their friendship made them grow and learn more about life and love and the reality of all things good and bad. Selena Gomez was just the glue the two of them needed to get over the everyday crap they wanted to avoid.
I absolutely LOVED this movie. It was a great mix of emotions: touches of sadness with sarcasm and hilarity thrown in at all the right moments. The actors were great and portrayed their characters beautifully. This movie is great for people who love Indie films and do not mind some cursing along the way. This was a heart-felt film that was riddled with sarcasm and hilarious jokes. Some scenes even caused me to laugh so much I would have to pause the movie to collect myself so I could hear the next scene. not an exaggeration This movie is definitely worth the watch with its great actors, <more>
writing, and overall uplifting feeling. 10/10 would recommend and watch again!!
I love a good movie especially when I have no expectations. I sat down with my kids and was just so surprised by how good this movie really was.I don't write reviews, but felt I simply had to for this one.It was pure entertainment from start to finish wonderfully funny and just restored a little bit of faith in the guild of acting and humanity.If you are in the mood for an up beat feel good movie with a lot of laughs this is a pleasantly easy watch, that the whole family can enjoy.Well done and thank you.
Surprisingly pleasant and overly warming. (by dmchardy98)
I never review movies, but this is an exception. I have never been so pleasantly surprised by a movie in such a long time and I really have to commend the cast for doing such a great job. The movie was heartfelt from start to finish and included just the right balance of laughs and tragedy to keep the overall mood upbeat.The story, which I will refrain from spoiling, is one that can be related to everyone, regardless of our circumstances. It presents a clear choice that we make everyday; live life to its fullest or use excuses to keep everyday the exact same until we die. I believe that there <more>
is no greater message worth spreading.As I said, I have no intent on spoiling this movie whatsoever, but if you happen to run out of movie ideas, this is a solid choice even for family viewing, despite the 15 certificate.
A great movie that should be put up with some of the best road trip films ever. (by FallonTimberlake2016)
The Fundamentals of Caring surprised me for a couple of reasons. First of all, even though they started off great with Beasts of No Nation, Netflix has not made very good movies lately. With two bad Adam Sandler comedies and a mediocre Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sequel, I started to wonder whether they were going to redeem themselves movie-wise. On top of that, this movie stars Selena Gomez, who hasn't made any good movies despite being relatively easy to look at.Netflix, you have been redeemed, because this was an exemplary film with great acting from Paul Rudd and very likable <more>
characters. This was a fun movie to watch what with there being dark humor and heartwarming exchanges between the main trio. Speaking of which, all of the three actors were great! As I said before, Paul Rudd took the cake for me. He stole the majority of his scenes in the film, which again solidifies his talent for dramatic roles and not just comedic. Craig Roberts made me laugh multiple times throughout the runtime with the delivery of his lines. I have not heard of him and am looking forward to more roles in the future. And yes, Selena Gomez actually gave a well executed performance! I have nothing against her, it's just that after seeing clips of the movie Getaway I was skeptical. There is an appearance of Bobby Cannavale in this movie that I quite enjoyed also.If you are looking for a movie completely purged of clichés, than this may not be the one for you. The backstory does help you feel for the characters, but has been seen in various other films.There is also a distinct lack of obstacles, but this does not deter the film from working its magic. The previous paragraph is basically all I found wrong with this film, and I was just looking for things to nitpick on. If you are looking for a good film to watch with your family on Netflix, The Fundamentals of Caring is perfect, and it is a shame that The Do-Over is significantly more popular than this gem.I give The Fundamentals of Caring 8/10 stars.P.S. Watching this with your family might be a problem because this does have a decent amount of language. This is in no means A Christmas Story; it's more of a Rain Man type film.
