GREENLIGHT #60: Lady in the Water (with "American Splendor" and "Splash")

Ann and Les disagree vehemently on Lady in the Water (2006.) Les gives it a green because he thinks it's a charming little story about the importance of everyone on this earth and he was thoroughly entertained by Paul Giammatti's performance. Ann,on the other hand, was thoroughly insulted by this film and gives it a raging red. She thinks M. Night Shyamalan has pulled the wool over everyone's eyes and she's determined to get that wool off. She's particularly galled by this film because it is purporting to be an "intelligent" film when, she thinks, it's really unintelligible. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les couldn't think of a comparable faiy tale movie but he does think that Mr. Giamatti plays Harvey Pekar wonderfully in the real-life cartoon movie American Splendor (2003.) Meanwhile, Ann was ever-so-happy to recommend a fairy tale movie directed by the lady-in-the-water's father Ron Howard called Splash (1984.)
