There is one plotline I'm not wild about (something about Tom Berenger's ex), but the other 6-7 are outstanding.

Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.

Also: You can't say G-damn on the air ... Don't worry, nobody's listening.

I recommend his work in Far From Heaven, but it is not a fun movie at all.

It's important to remember, when watching that movie, that when it came out the Indians had been doormats for a long, long time and hadn't been to the playoffs in 35 years. --Bob

Yes, not a fun movie but a wonderful homage to all the lush Technicolor soap dramas from Ross Hunter - Magnificent Obsession, Imitation of Life, Back Street, All That Heaven Allows, etc.

Both he and Julianne Moore are excellent and Dennis Quaid is pretty good, too.
