Hullo, My Name is Doris!: Monday, May 2 2016
Hullo, My Name is Doris is an American romantic comedy-drama directed by Michael Showalter.
The film hangs on the performance of Sally Fields as Doris Miller. If you are a fan of hers, you will enjoy this film.
I've never been much of a fan of Sally Fields, but would agree that without her this film wouldn't have been worth making. On the other hand, the character she plays is so immature for the 60+ -year-old woman she is playing, she must have needed the money to agree to take this part.
Once you have substituted an inexperienced in love teenager for Doris, then the film reveals itself for what it is.
When my friends and I came out of the Cineplex, I asked them what they thought of the movie. Annette's first comment was, "What a dumb movie!". Maureen said she had quite enjoyed it in spite of it being such a stupid film.
That said it all, very well.
