I find Toys to be quite watchable, though it is something of a melancholy 'adieu' to childhood. It reminds me of some old made-for-TV toyland styled movie I only vaguely remember from my childhood and have been unable to trace.Liamh1982 wrote:Add Patch Adams to that list.
And Bicentennial Man.
He really has been in some truly apocalyptically abysmal films.
Bicentennial Man was an interesting idea, and could almost get away without being depressing if it didn't just go on and on and on. The one that particularly bugs me is Mrs Doubtfire - it could have been one of those comedies where you can forgive the otherwise odd or creepy premise for the slapstick and witty dialogue, but no, it had to turn into an excruciating study of tragic personality collapse. I don't think I've been able to sit through many of his other films (apart from the end-to-end screwed up Garp). I only started watching What Dreams May Come because I'd heard about the effects, and only watched the rest out of a morbid curiosity to see how revolting it could get. I don't think I slept that night.
