Can not explain the charm of this film. It is just so real.
Amusing (by markmcardle-588-885815)
Although this film does not have a complicated plot or much depth, I thought it was fun and found myself smiling all the way through. If you are looking for a simple and amusing film this is the one for you.The story observes many real life feelings and situations even if it does cross over into the surreal sometimes. It doesn't have the scripted feeling that so many comedies seem to fall into and keeps a jovial feeling without leaving you cringing.I thought Hugh Laurie was brilliant as House and I have wanted to see him in other things but was put off by the rating on this film. It is <more>
never going to be an epic but it is fantastic for what it is. A true feel good movie if you are in the mood for a dose of reality and can put aside some scepticism.
I want to see more of these kinds of movies! (by lee_eisenberg)
Early on I figured out that "The Oranges" was going to be the same sort of movie as "American Beauty". But it's not a retread. It's definitely its own type of movie. A good one, I should add. No matter how you look at either movie, the point is that suburbanites are NOT role models. Vanessa and Nina are the most rational characters in the movie, but I found Cathy to be the funniest due to her inability to see the falsity and superficiality of her world.I really wish that there were more movies like this one. The glut of remakes and reboots, coupled with the endless <more>
supply of superhero movies and Michael Bay-style movies, makes these clever indies all the more important. Not a masterpiece, but still a good one.This is actually Allison Janney's third movie about suburbanites. She previously co-starred in "The Ice Storm" and "American Beauty".
I saw this movie with zero previous knowledge and it really impressed me. Two neighbouring families in New Jersey in an area known as The Oranges because the cities there all have the term Orange in their names -- hence the title of the movie live harmonically next to each other. The children have grown up together, the men go jogging together, they celebrate the holidays together. They have normal problems -- one daughter doesn't seem to get on with her life, the other plans to marry a deadbeat, then breaks up with him because she caught him cheating on her. Her meddling mother wants <more>
to hook her up with their neighbour's A-student son, but the wayward daughter opts for his dad played by Hugh Laurie instead. Actually, a plausible choice at that point. She's fed up with college boys, needs stability, and they do care for each other. Her new manfriend feels rejuvenated since his marriage has been in the doldrums for some time. After the unlikely lovebirds have kissed, and even before their first date in a no-tell-motel, their budding affair is exposed. And a lot of hell breaks loose.The movie plays out a conundrum scenario. On the one hand, there's nothing wrong with an loving relationship between two consenting adults, right? Nina, the girl hooking up with her family guy neighbour, says it herself in one scene: "But what if there was no wrong? ... There is no wrong." On the other hand, the very proximity between all persons involved turns against the love affair between Nina and David family guy . David's daughter feels this most acutely: she doesn't want to become a nagging moralizer for family values. On the other hand, she doesn't want her former schoolmate Nina to become her new stepmom either.I find this a great movie about an interesting moral dilemma.
What is happiness ...and what is it worth? (by ohgoditscory)
This movie isn't about adultery or male fantasies. To think that is to completely miss out on what the film is trying to say and I feel it's dodging the questions that are silently asked throughout the movie: "What is happiness and what is it worth?" While a previous review mentions the movie being about consequences, and there certainly is plenty of that showcased throughout the film, it's really about a group of people, family and close friends, who realize that they are all still searching for happiness after the imaginary suburbia happy fairy gets metaphorically hit <more>
by a truck.By the end of the film, one may wonder whether various moment were that of selflessly sacrificing personal happiness in order for others, whom you also love, to have more of their own.The casting simply could not have been any better for this film and, ironically, this picture marks the second time that Leighton Meester has played a character who has a thing for Hugh Laurie House, MD .
A very very funny under the radar comedy that deserves to be seen by a larger audience then it will get. Laugh-out-loud. I say B+ (by cosmo_tiger)
"If you could lean across this table right now and kiss me and no one said it was wrong and there were no rules, would you do it?" The Walling and Ostroff families live across street from each other and are best of friends. One Thanksgiving Nina Ostroff Meester surprises everyone by showing up unexpectedly. This innocent act changes both families forever. For awhile now I have started watching movies without seeing the trailers for it. That way I go in with no real expectations and no idea about what the movie is about. I did that with this one. I knew the basic plot but that was <more>
it. I have to say I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this. The writing is very witty and funny and I laughed out loud most of the way through. The movie deals with a very hard and sensitive subject but has so much heart and laughs that it takes the pain away from the idea and makes it enjoyable to watch. This is a very good indi-comedy that I highly recommend. Overall, very very funny and very much worth watching. I say B+.
