Three sentence movie reviews: Career Opportunities

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

I can see all the early-90s comedy things going on here, meaning this film’s comedy is over-exaggerated.  It’s a nice time capsule back to Target-in-the-90s, which doesn’t look that different than Target in 2017.* Frank Whaley gives it his all, but this was, alas, not a star making turn for him, though it was a solid resume builder for Jennifer Connelly.**

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home, catching up with a John Hughes film I had missed.***

*Though I am not a regular patron of Target, so perhaps there are nuances?
**It’s also one of those movies where the female motivation (specifically, her relationship to Whaley) doesn’t really make a ton of sense, but is, instead, a plot device.
***Sadly, John Hughes in the 90s is a like Cameron Crowe after Almost Famous: not nearly as satisfying as before.

    It is interesting to think about how JC looks these days. Very very thin and exceedingly chic. Her face is less round and has so many more angles.

      I feel like that’s the only choice for actresses in Hollywood as they age. Thinner and thinner.
