    Subject: My jaw Dropped and a tear flowed
    Date: May 28, 2002
    Sender: scott chesnutPrevious | Next

    I had heard through several reviews that this movie had some potential. Plus, I had been a HUGE Albert Brooks fan over the years. But after I got through watching "My First Mister" the first words out of my mouth were....."My God, what a Great Movie!" How many of us have been touched by a special friendship with someone who was so idealogically different from us. Plus Christine Lahti's direction was succent and she never took her focus off of the two main protagnists! Although I do have some politically and philosophical differences with Ms. Lahti I do respect her abilities. I can only say "Thanks!" to Ms. Lahti, Ms. Sobieski, Mr. Brooks and an incredible talented group of people. And many kudos to the talented writer of this tender piece as well. Like I mentioned, "My jaw dropped and a tear flowed as soon as I saw this Masterpiece!"
