It would be very easy to sneer at this film. There are certainly flaws
enough, but one should remember that a number of people spent a number
of months creating a film which is not pornography, an action epic or
teen horror extravaganza. More to the point, it is not an "art house"
film either, so, in my book, some folk had faith in it and it deserves
more than a shrug.
The positives: Malcolm McDowell an actor who has specialised in
off-the-wall roles from Anderson's anti-establishment films and
Kubrick's "Clockwork Orange" , to the earnest, wife-loving Shakespeare
lecturer who is also, with the best of intentions, a pimp.
His classes of nubile young students, who would, in the normal course
of events, be screwing spotty undergraduates, are actually occasionally
screwing very wealthy, if elderly, men in exchange for scholarships. Is
this a problem? It depends on your point of view, and this gives the
film its saving interest.
The opening shots leave one in no doubt that this is a film aimed at a
"mature" audience. Things go wrong in a way which ensures that we drop
into Professor Noah Melville's world at a point when it is about to
unravel (His name is a rather forced amalgam of American literature and
McDowell is an actor. He carries and almost saves the film. His
Melville neither tastes his own wares nor benefits financially. He
merely harnesses the "summer seeming lust" to get his students free
education. Unfortunately not all of his clients are as high-minded.
Enter the negatives. The film loses its grip and spins into the bushes.
A detective (Macfadyen), a cliché of the misunderstood divorced cop
with food in one hand and a faint glint in the eye when he remembers
why he joined the force before disillusionment and a justified killing,
bumbles through a script Shakespeare could not save. If ever a
character was created by a committee, this is it. His partner I shall
not name because she will want to forget this film, as will several
young women whose talents do not stretch to acting. It is a great pity
that a thought-provoking idea was allowed to die on the altar of cast
Does the film make one think? Yes, but mainly about how much better it
could have been. The director has tried to span too large a ravine
between an intelligent college human interest story like Educating
Rita, and a poor man's Lethal Weapon. I'm afraid the film falls into
the sad category of "nice try".
