A high-school reunion in snowy New England finds a group of classmates taking some very curious and different paths.
A warm, thoughtful dramedy about male insecurity, Beautiful Girls is buoyed by an excellent cast - particularly Natalie Portman in a stunning early role.
Beautiful Girls is always in touch with reality but never drowned in it.
It's the women who break the monotony of this dudes-in-flux saga...
Does "Beautiful Girls" philosophically aspire to much more than mirroring a Counting Crows lyric from "Mr. Jones?" Maybe not. But there's a barroom eloquence, bottle-bottomed anxiety and stumblebum sadness to it that lingers in its bones.
This startlingly uneventful compendium of thick-headed boy-talk and female tolerance squanders a fine cast on incredibly ordinary characters and situations.
In a relationship that skirts bad taste, Hutton and Portman make tender movie magic, giving this big-screen spin on Friends its only moments of true romantic yearning.
This film really succeeds with its warm treatment of ordinary hang-ups -- no life-shattering revelations or pain repressed since childhood, just the genuine, everyday trials of life.
Women may be unimpressed, but men will squirm with recognition.
The dialogue isn't the only problem with Beautiful Girls. The characters are bad, too.
Natalie Portman, as a 13-year-old on whom Hutton develops a strangely affecting crush, is a delight.
