  1. Altman always manages to pop up with another masterpiece -- and darned if he hasn't done it again.
  2. Altman gladly admits there's not much of a story here; his movies are driven by characters.

    Altman orchestrates Dr. T's odyssey with the precision, heart and lively wit of a virtuoso.

    Gere breaks through with what may or may not be his best performance.
  5. The movie that pretends to celebrate women devolves into the complaint of a wronged man.

    It's a terrific showcase for Richard Gere, Shelley Long, Farrah Fawcett and a number of other actors who almost seemed to have been written off.
  7. 30
    About the only good thing to say about this mess is that it's rotten enough that even Altman cultists may be forced to reconsider their devotion.

    Very sad, being as Robert Altman is my favorite American filmmaker of all-time. I think he did a terrific job, for the most part, it was the Very sad, being as Robert Altman is my favorite American filmmaker of all-time. I think he did a terrific job, for the most part, it was the story that just wasn't very appealing. It came off as thinking it was more intriguing and unique than it actually was. The final two minutes of the film dropped this a point and a half. I got it, but it was too out there for a film this "normal". Collapse

    funny during a couple times but all and all it was by far the worst movie I have ever seen. [***SPOILERS***] How did he end up in Mexico? funny during a couple times but all and all it was by far the worst movie I have ever seen. [***SPOILERS***] How did he end up in Mexico? Dallas is about 500 miles from Mexico and a tornado couldnt throw you more than 5 miles. too normal to have that unrealistic of an ending. Expand
