“Nine Months” Movie Review

ForCarol.com Movie Review 3-Watertowers(Overacted but Funny, Robin Williams shines)

Samuel (Hugh Grant) and Rebecca (Julianne Moore) have been dating for a long time.  Rebecca’s biological clock is ticking away, but, child psychologist Sam is oblivious to this new paradigm in this relationship. He still wants to play and be a kid, she wants him to grow up, get married, and have a family.

nine monthsBirth control is 97% effective. In Rebecca’s case, the 3% became 100%. She is pregnant. Sam is flabbergasted and has no clue what to do. So he does nothing.

“Nine Months” has a famous cast and famous director, Chris Columbus, who encourages the actors to go completely over the top. The only one that suits that mold is Robin Williams who, in his short time on screen, is absolutely hilarious. Robin Williams allowed to be Robin Williams….perfection….damn we miss him. The other actors are not as successful: Hugh Grant is not an over the top actor and Tom Arnold (who I normally like) is irritating as all get out. Julianne Moore and Jeff Goldblum keep it low key while Joan Cusack is ok over the top.

Rent it just to see Robin Williams do his thing.

Go to IMDb for more information. We watched this on B-movie heaven, Netflix. Thanks, Ryan!
