"Home Fries" was a unique kind of romantic comedy. Along with its boy-meets-girl-and-falls-in-love storyline, it also contains infidelity, murder, and a psychologically controlling mother. Jake Busey gives a terrific performance as Angus, the brother who wants to kill Drew Berrymore. However, the show was stolen by Luke Wilson Bottle Rocket , who inadvertently falls in love with the girl who his stepfather had an affair with."Home Fries" blends romance and dark comedy in a way that results in a very entertaining film. With a good story and an excellent cast, this is one <more>
This movie is not like The Wedding Singer which I loved but personally I'm happy to see a romantic comedy with a dark, murderous and twisted plot. Drew Barrymore is great in her role and does an incredibly funny southern accent that makes her seem so innocent. I absolutely recommend this movie!!
Unexpectedly hilarious. (by russell_martin)
I would have given this film a '10', except that I believe that the manner in which it was marketed is a flaw. Similar to the way that films like "Love Serenade", or "Muriel's Wedding" were not presented as outrageous and offbeat comedies this film's preview and sleeve present it as if it is another main stream romantic comedy like "You've Got Mail" . It is in fact a wonderfully deranged and outrageous film that could easily be mistaken for a Cohen sp? brothers movie.
My wife and I both loved this film (by tholar)
This a wonderful movie. Full of laughs and also sometimes very tender. Drew is marvelous and very believable and the other actors as well. Jake is also very good in this and is reminicent of his father I assume Gary is We both were very impressed with Luke Wilson. The scenes at the burger place was great
Funny and quirky - Like "Fargo" in tone, maybe better!! (by ALP-8)
Very well done movie, script and supporting actors are the best parts, in fact just wonderful. Very off-beat plot and humor. I have to recommend it highly. Even tho' I don't care for Drew Barrymore, I think this is a winner!
An interesting, unique movie with entertaining ideas. (by navyfrog)
I had gone to see this movie because I really enjoy Drew Barrymore's acting. I ended up liking more than just Drew's part though. I thought it was a unique movie with just the right amount of humour - keeping it far from slapstick, but generated a light atmosphere that kept everyone level with the innocence of it all. I'd definitely recommend this movie to anyone with an open mind and a sense of humour.
Pregnant white trash girl meets boy. Dark hilarity ensues. (by underbelly-1)
An excellent movie for those who understand and appreciate intelligent comedy. Do not be fooled by the erroneous "romantic comedy" label. It does contain comedy and romance but is not part of that silly sub-genre. Home Fries is one of those rare comedies in which actors aren't hindered by special effects, music swells, wild car chases, or cheesy dialog/ situations. The script is offbeat, energetic, and smart giving the actors something substantial to use.Luke Wilson finally crawled out from under the shadow of his brother, Owen, in this one. Wilson even executes a great fall <more>
presumably on purpose in one scene which throws some slapstick into an otherwise cerebral affair. Also, Drew Barrymore rises above her own reputation here. She's finally proved that she's capable of more than what we expect of her and that she doesn't need to ride the coattails of washed-up Saturday Night Live actors.Hollywood ran amok with the whole "romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore" angle when this movie was promoted. This was a huge mistake that probably alienated many viewers who may really like this while disappointing the teeming masses who just wanted a sweet, predictable piece of light comedy for their date nights. This is pure dark comedy. I cannot give it the highest possible score because it does suffer a bit in spots. Namely, Gary Busey's kid is just not up to his role. Yeah, he's got funny teeth but that does not mean that he can play any comic role. His acting chops are just not up to the task of playing Wilson's brother. Of course probably no one but Luke's actual brother, Owen, is really up to that. But at least, as I mentioned, Luke gets his much-deserved chance to shine.Fans of Wes Anderson and Jim Jarmisch should take note of this movie.
The reason this film is rated so poorly is that it had the most misleading preview ever. It was marketed as a feel-good low-IQ no-surprise white-bread movie that Ronald Reagan would have applauded. Instead it was a dark and original exercise that is well worth seeing. It has an audience, but they didn't go. I only saw it because one of my filmy friends bugged me until I agreed to give it a chance. The people that did go based on the preview were ironically exactly the wrong audience.
