The Accidental Tourist is a whirlwind of emotions--sadness and laughter throughout. The film is worth seeing for the performances of Kathleen Turner and Geena Davis alone.

I'm with Pauline Kael on this one. This movie dragged and dragged and dragged, except when Geena Davis showed up every few minutes to annoy the audience - her performance was someone rubbing her hand over a balloon.

I just couldn't believe how long this movie seemed to be and how relieved I was when it was finally over. Collapse

Appreciation for William Hurt's abilities may be difficult to endure if one is in a similar state of mind. The possibilities of life returning after a devistating experience of the death of a child, particularly to a person who was guarded against life previously to the child's death, demonstrates transformation at its most wonderful state.

A wonderful film that works on many levels. But none better than the performance of William Hurt, which inexplicibly was snubbed of an Oscar nomination, maybe because AMPAS was too threatened to nominate an actor four years in a row.
