This movie is about a socially awkward American man and British womanwho meet in London, get to like one another and may have a futuretogether. The plot has been done a zillion times. I pretty much knewwhat was going to happen twenty minutes into the film. What saves thefilm from being one huge pred...
On the face of it Last Chance Harvey, helmed by the virtually unknownEnglish director Joel Hopkins, is a mere piece of frippery, a littletale of a chance encounter in an airport between a man and woman of acertain age on the rebound from disappointment, something we've seendozens of times. But the m...
Yes, it's one of those "nice" movies but Emma Thompson's presence aloneraises the worthiness of this movie several notches. We believeeverything we see in her wonderful complicated face and that's the hookthat will carry you along, it certainly did me. Dustin Hoffman, is theunlikely romantic door th...
This modest story has been told a million times - loveless singles whofind each other. And yes, the story is way predictable, as AmericanDustin Hoffman ventures to London for his daughter's wedding,cross-cutting with British Emma Thompson struggling with a possessivemother, a rote job and impinging ...
What can we say about Dustie Hoffman and Emma Thompson? Here are 2 ofthe best in the profession laying out roles of two disaffected peoplewho encounter in their disparate desperation and find in themselvessomething to come to grips with who they are. The interesting thing, isthat this is a plot line...
This was such a genuine film with a lot of heart. I loved the storyline for one. It was not over the top or extremely dramatic. Not onlywith the script but I did not expect those performances from either oneof the main actors. Dustin Hoffman who I within the last few years havediscovered his genius ...
I can't get over the fact that at 71 1/2 and with over 40 movies underhis belt, Dustin Hoffman repeatedly gave the impression at the Q&A ofsomeone who grappled with a struggling career. "Why don't they writesroles for people my age?" he vented. He worked for ten years as awaiter before his career to...
I can see why other reviewers have called this movie boring: there areno chases, crashes, plot twists, sex scenes, or gut-busting laughs.What there is: a gentle movie featuring two wonderful actors doingsuperb work. Dustin Hoffman is Harvey, an old-school jingle writer whois refusing to read the wri...
While Joel Hopkins' Last Chance Harvey does not break any new ground,it contains some very unusual features for a romantic comedy: loverswho are over fifty years old and estranged family members who treateach other with civility. The film is about second chances and, in thiscase, perhaps third or fo...
I spent most of this movie feeling a subdued kind of sadness for thecharacters, and I can't remember another movie sustaining that feelinglike this one did. This movie is about two socially awkward people whocould use some real companionship, and the way they go about finding it(which is to say, wit...
LAST CHANCE HARVEY is a breath of fresh air amongst a sea of darkdramas up for kudos. The journey Hoffman takes to London and hisencounter with the marvelous Emma Thompson creates a story that is soentertaining and enjoyable. The London locations, the brilliantchemistry between Emma and Dustin, and ...
I am absolutely shocked to see a modern day movie made that's devoid ofspecial effects; explosions; fast cut editing; no foul language; nonudity; no vicious killings; no villains; no CGI. This movie was sorefreshing for what it is. Tells a coherent story with no "shockending", with actors who can AC...
World - Class athletes will talk about getting into "The Zone" ararified state where they exist on another plane from theirrivals.Where the extra scintilla of talent,the super - gene that givesthem their greatness,suddenly comes into play and pushes them throughonto a higher level of performance.Pel...
At its best, this rather slight 2008 melding of comedy and dramareminds me of Ulu Grosbard's bittersweet "Falling in Love" (1984) inwhich Robert DeNiro and Meryl Streep stumble into a romanticrelationship constantly derailed by guilt and commuter train schedules.At its worst, this film - leisurely d...
Two stars here, but only for the radiant Emma Thompson, who can rarelyput a foot wrong and on sentiment for Dustin Hoffman, who has done somuch good work over many decades. Hoffman tries earnestly here, but thescript, by director Joel Hopkins, is labored and stilted, and thecomedy mostly falls flat ...
Last Chance Harvey (2008)**** (out of 4) Dustin Hoffman plays Harvey Shine, a man on his way to London for hisdaughter's wedding but at home facing problems with his job. When helands in London he learns that his daughter doesn't want him walkingher down the aisle. Hurt, he goes to the airport bar w...
I found this film to be utterly charming. The premise is a bit clichéd,perhaps, and a jaded individual could fall into the trap of being somekind of Scrooge who only saw the weaker connective plot points. But thejoy of watching two master actors, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompsonmakes this a real jo...
You can really feel the tension and truth in this film. What a reliefHoffman and Thompson - an unlikely couple - should get together withthis great script to produce an emotional roller-coaster. Thank youboth. This really is my kind of film.Having walked out of Terminator Salvation after an hour, fo...
I was tempted to give this film nine stars, but then asked myself,"why?" Just because it doesn't have the pseudo-sophistication of thebodily-fluid ridden "Schenectady N.Y." or the techno virtuosity of"Benjamin Button"? Frankly, first made me nauseous and second bored. Iwalked out in the middle of th...
Last Chance Harvey tells the story of struggling American jingle writerHarvey Shine(Dustin Hoffman)who's on his way to England to attend thewedding of his daughter Susan(Liane Balaban).The two have beenestranged for a while and she tells him she wants her step dadBrian(James Brolin)to give her away....
This is not a terribly memorable movie; the plot has been done athousand times. It hangs its hat on its stars and they do a nice job.Dustin Hoffman, the Last Chance in this film, puts in a niceperformance as a man who has never been happy, even with moderatesuccess. He is a burned out yes man who se...
I really wanted to like "Last Chance Harvey", but I only kind-of likedit. It is great to see Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson as romanticcomedy leads, or rather romantic drama leads.It is a good movie, no matter how predictable it is, but it failedbecause of how it was trying to succeed. The produce...
Dustin Hoffman is a stagnating jingle writer who goes to London for hisdaughters wedding. There he meets Emma Thompson who works for anairline. Both are seemingly down and out and looking for a last chanceat love.Adult film about an attempt a romance is a really good film if youunderstand what the f...
I liked it because of the realism in the performances and the portrayalof 2 lonely people meeting and agreeing to keep each other company, andthen realising that they like each other. It made me think about howpeople meet in real life, and there are all sorts of ways. If someoneis really seeking a f...
"Last Chance Harvey" would have made a great short subject. As it is,the feature length film clocks in at a mere 90 minutes or so, but I'mnot sure there was really enough material to warrant even that briefrunning time.But whatever the film's shortcomings are in substance are more thanmade up for by...
