It’s a good movie!!! No Oscar’s will be won and no body will rave about it…. Don’t wait until you have watched all the movies that you want to see, to get around to this one. Put it on your list for you that movie you want to see soon….. But give it a watch and your guaranteed to cry at least once, it will become a different movie to the one you thought you were going to watch, but that’s not a bad thing! You will figure out where it’s going and what you believe the ending will be, it will then give you a curveball and say “ no we aren’t going there” But then it will immediately start going there, but once again it will look you straight in the face and say “we are fooling with you, we aren’t going to really do that” then it will….. The last ten minutes you will see all those lined up penny’s fall into place and your finish this film feeling how you should…… SAD, HAPPY, TEARFUL but best of all…… COMPLETE

I watched it in the cinema with a reasonable sized audience. Everyone laughed. Everyone cried. It's perfect for achieving exactly what it set out to do. It'd be nice if Tom got awards nods for this, but Mariana Trevino definitely needs nominations.

A Man Called Otto is heartfelt and sad story about a widowed husband trying to find his place in the world without his wife. It is incredibly touching and can resonate with any audience member no matter the age.

Going into the film, I was expecting it to have it's sad moments but there are times More

Fans of the BBC sitcom "One Foot in the Grave" might recognise something of the "Victor Meldrew" in Tom Hanks' portrayal of the eponymous curmudgeon. Formerly head of the community association, he takes it upon himself each morning to do his "rounds" - checking the gates are closed, the permits are More
