The Object of Beauty


The Object of Beauty Review

Back in 1991, Andie MacDowell was even worse of an actress than she is today. Much worse. Terrible, really. For the proof, check her out in this post-sex, lies, and videotape outing with John Malkovich in a story about -- get this -- a statuette that gets stolen from their hotel room nightstand. By a deaf mute cleaning lady. That's the object of beauty, I guess, and this movie is about as good as any that would put the word "object" in the title. Boring at its best and incomprehensible at its worst, this is one film you can easily pass up.
