Many people criticize a film based on how close it relates andcarriesover from its novel or written form.However, knowing up front that this film is NOT the book and darestoactually go in different directions than the book, may allow for aviewer to be a bit more open about the point of the story and...
Based on the best-selling novel by John Irving, here is the big screenequivalent of a good read. Robin Williams almost plays it down, butthoroughly shines in the title role as T.S.Garp in this, his firstproper feature film(well you can hardly include 'Popeye' in thatcategory!).This is an amazingly r...
"The World According to Garp" must have been a challenging film to makeforall involved. The film spans nearly forty years and requires the actors tonot only age four decades, but to emote four decades of their respectivecharacter's development. All involved do this astonishingly well,especiallyRobin...
"The World According To Garp" introduced me to several things dear to mewhen I saw it as a child: the Beatles (through the opening credits song),Robin Williams (okay, he's not dear to me, but I like his dramatic stuff)and an early understanding of what "bittersweet" meant. To be honest, I havenever ...
Never before have I viewed a movie with such imagination, heart, andextensive use of foreshadowing and irony. Watching "Garp" makes onerealizehow both beautiful and morally bankrupt our society is, and that we'truly'reap what we sow. From feminism exploitation to marital infidelity togender-alterati...
I saw this movie again on cable the other night after many years, andforgotten how enjoyable it is. This remains one of Robins Williams' bestperformances, but the show is stolen by Glen Close's debut performance ashis mother, a neurotic feminist nurse who overshadows his writing careerwith her own....
This book is one of my favorites, so I had to see eventually how themovie stacked up. Not bad, but not perfect either. The movie takes solong to get going that the end seems rushed. If I hadn't read the book,I would have had a hard time really understanding the feud with theEllen Jamesians or Pooh's...
The World According to Garp is an unconventional film, to say theleast. Not so much in the sense of how it looks, or how it is acted.More than anything the film stands out because it is a human drama thatdoesn't take a stance or one particular point of view. T. S. Garp issimply a man trying to live ...
Adapting a novel to the screen is fraught with difficulties, and "The WorldAccording to Garp" meets those difficulties brilliantly. It is notslavishly faithful to the book as far as details go, but it omits thoseelements which will not translate well and makes whatever changes areneededto make the ...
It's the only movie I have ever liked more than the book it was basedon. In this case, I'd say "loved". This movie was my #1 favorite foryears, and, considering how much I love movies, that's sayingsomething! In his early years, Garp keeps pushing and pulling, andtrying to steer, but life doesn't wo...
To the best of my recollection this was the movie that turned it allaround for me. I saw it for the first time in the theater when I wasjunior in high school, and as well as I remember it had more influence,in terms of altering my future movie going choices, than any other film.At the time I was dat...
From the first time I saw Garp I was enthralled by the depth of quality inevery aspect, but just tonight I realised that the same director, George RoyHill had also made two of my all time favourite films - Slaughterhouse Fiveand Thoroughly Modern Millie.I love the strength and individuality of the c...
this is the only movie of robin williams' that i can sit through. in everyother movie (too many to count), robin drops character more than once andbecomes mr. lovable comedian. not because the script calls for it, butbecause i think he gets uncomfortable with acting and finds it easier to goback t...
Adapted from John Irving's best seller, "The World According to Garp"is one of the strangest movie I've ever had to see, I guess I mean itas a compliment although I didn't put my expectations very high. Thefilm starts with Jenny Fields, Glenn Close as the central character,she's the caring and lovin...
Garp and I go waaay back. We have a history, part of which I will omithere for some honor, but most I'll explain.Picture it: Summer of 1982, Arizona. I was 8 years old and my parentstook me to see The World According to Garp with the rational that it'sRobin Williams (he was Popeye for my sake) so it...
Never read the book but watched this movie in the '80-s in a cinema.This was one of the movies in those days everyone went to see. Greatcharacters and a wonderful storyline. This is one of the pictures onlyAmericans can make (like Big Fish): a sort of modern fairytale withlots of unusual people but ...
An astounding feat by director George Roy Hill and screenwriter SteveTesich, who manage to condense John Irving's masterpiece into acohesive film and not lose anything in the process. Robin Williams hasthe title role and he does some of his best acting here. Heconvincingly portrays Garp from high sc...

Sort of a weird and off-beat film with touching characters, the WorldAccording to Garp is a movie that came before Forrest Gump in thatlineage of thinking. It offers interesting quirky characters andstrange captivating story lines. It's pacing is pretty pedestrian, butperformances are good enough to...
Trying to find your own self is always a struggle when a parent forcesyou into something you're not. In "The World According to Garp" itexplains for itself. T.S Garp(Robin Williams) is a young man whosefather was a dying solider. Never met him, so he never had a fatherfigure in his life. His mother ...
T.S. Garp (Oscar-Winner:Robin Williams), who lives an unusual life withhis bright, caring, truthful but peculiar mother Jenny (Glenn Close).Who's also an nurse. But Garp has an wild imagination as a child andnow as a young adult, he wants to be a "serious" writer. Once he movesto New York City with ...
WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP, THE **** Robin Williams, Glenn Close, MaryBeth Hurt, and John Lithgow offer terrific performances in thisprogressive look at the life of Garp--he's not an odd guy; he's justhaving to face the common problematic issues that come with childhood,adolescence, and adulthood. It's...
The World According to Garp sounded fishy to me, literally. I actuallythought it was a movie about a fish who went gulp, gulp (hence the nameGarp), in a bowl and how the world would appear to it if we spent a dayin its mind, something along the weird and quirky lines of Being JohnMalkovich.But thank...
I consider this one of the best movies ever made. I rate it up therewith Citizen Kane, Twelve Angry Men, and other such classics. Thedifference is "The World According to Garp" (Garp) isn't a typicaldrama.One cannot truly appreciate the symbolisms, metaphors, ironies, andforeshadowing without seeing...
Last night this film was showed again on Dutch television and when Ifirst saw the film, back in 1983 in the cinema I was shocked. It was soUN-American and yet so American at the same time. No happy ending,great actors (Robin Williams is the most convincing father I've everseen. The love for his chil...
