What leads me to watch this film is Dianne Wiest’s singular Oscar-nomination, how rare a mainstream comedy stars Steve Martin could generate an Oscar-caliber performance? Is it as eccentrically diverting as Marisa Tomei in MY COUSIN VINNYWhat leads me to watch this film is Dianne Wiest’s singular Oscar-nomination, how rare a mainstream comedy stars Steve Martin could generate an Oscar-caliber performance? Is it as eccentrically diverting as Marisa Tomei in MY COUSIN VINNY (1992, 7/10) or a rowdy and raunchy scene-stealer as Melissa McCarthy in BRIDESMAIDS (2011, 7/10)? Neither is the case here, thus the answer could only be that it is Academy’s honeymoon period with Wiest, who has just won an Oscar 3 years earlier for Woody Allen’s HANNAH AND HER SISTERS (1986, 8/10) and would harvest her second trophy pretty soon in another Allen’s satire BULLETS OVER BROADWAY (1994, 8/10).
