Becky and I went to see Lady in the Water on Friday night at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch. The Fandango movie website at Lady in the Water describes the movie as follows:
“When Cleveland Heep (Paul Giamatti) rescues an enigmatic young woman (Bryce Dallas Howard) from danger, little does he know that she is a character from a bedtime story, who is trying to return to her world. As he falls deeply in love with her, he begins to realize that he and fellow tenants are also characters in the fable, and they must work together to protect her from those who would prevent her from returning home.”
Lady in the Water is a whacky, kind of spooky film that is a bedtime story gone awry. If you read the description above before you go into this film then it will make sense and you will probably enjoy it. I didn’t read it going in, but had the patience to figure it out. Becky on the other hand fell asleep and hated this movie. She put it right up there with The Village, which is another M. Night Shyamalan movie that was not as good as this one in my opinion.
If you like this guy’s work than you will probably like the movie. A few people clapped at the end, other people yawned after waking up and some people just left completely confused. In other words, enter this movie at your own risk.
You may want to wait for the rental when you can pause, rewind, or turn it off. Plus, you can share the cost with a friend and figure it out together.
