Nobody's Fool

"Good"

Nobody's Fool Review


Paul Newman is back as the title character of Nobody's Fool. Nobody's Fool is a study of small-town life in upstate New York, focused on Newman as the go-between among a dozen or so townsfolk. Superb performances abound, particularly by Jessica Tandy (in her final role) and Bruce Willis, and even Melanie Griffith as Newman's would-be love interest performs with genuine emotion. Newman steals the show, of course, as the flawed Everyman who chooses to just let life happen and not make a big show of it.

Nobody's Fool is about as good a picture as can be expected to come out of Hollywood these days. It ties up a little too nicely, and tells a pleasant little story without going to the bother of trying to make much of a point. It's satisfying, but if you see the film, don't expect to have too much to say about it. I don't.
