The Accidental Tourist

What I love about The Accidental Tourist is it's slow pace. Especially in American films, slow pacing is usually rare due to our short attention span television brainwashing.


Geena Davis is simply awesome with her portrayal of Muriel Pritchett, the odd "dog trainer lady" from Baltimore, MD. I lived in Maryland for many years, and I've always had a huge soft spot for Baltimore. Despite the fact that it shares the "honor" of being the murder capital of the U.S. along with it's neighbor Washington, DC, I still miss Baltimore very much.

I've also always been a fan of William Hurt. His performances are always elegantly low key and understated, and I love that about him.

Of course, what can be said about Kathleen Turner...I mean c'mon...she was JESSICA RABBIT!
