The Life Aquatic
The previews for “The Life Aquatic” make this look like a kooky movie, and guess what? It is! It’s directed by Wes Anderson, the same guy who did “The Royal Tennenbaums.” That wasn’t one of my favorite movies, but I can’t resist Bill Murray, so I thought I’d give this one a shot. Well� I think it’s an acquired taste. I got the feeling that there were so many places where they were trying to be “off-the-wall” – and sometimes they were trying too hard. It didn’t come off as quirky as much as just plain silly to me. Props to Angelica Huston (love her!) and Jeff Goldblum for their contributions. Some nice moments, but overall, I could have missed it and not noticed.
