An adaptation of John Irving's comic novel, this is visual proof of what you shouldn't do with an adaptation of a popular novel. It's a shame to see a great cast, wasted in unsympathetic parts. You'd also think that this was a high-budget movie, but the bad cinematography seems to show otherwise. Such topics as suicide, homosexuality, rape and incest are not handled well by the so-called scriptwriters. Tony Richardson (Tom Jones) has done much better than this eyesore. There! I think I've just saved you about two hours.
