Last night I watched About Schmidt, which was, I believe, the most depressing movie I’ve ever seen. For some reason, I thought it was a comedy. IMDB says it’s a comedy. This is a lie. The movie is depressing, from the minute it starts. If you’ve ever wondered if your life was worthwhile, if you make a difference, if the world will be any better because of you … don’t see this movie.
I’m really quite unable to think how anybody found it even remotely funny. Perhaps one has to be young cruel.
