Mini Movie Reviews

Because I'm lazy.

Little Children

For the life of me, I can't remember why I wanted to watch this. Maybe because it has Jennifer Connelly, whom I worship. Basically, the point the writer seems to be making is that only children are decent people, and all adults are no good. He does this by making the pedophile the sympathetic character. Yes, that's right. He's painted as more of a human being than the adulterers, the kid killer, apparently even the controlling wife (Connelly), the married man who jerks off to a website pinup girl, etc. I watched the first hour or so, was really bored, and then finished it a few weeks later. The awful awful thing was how it ended, where everyone decides to stick with their families after, as far as I can tell, nothing significant happened to change their minds.
