As a huge John Ritter and Henry Winkler fan, I was hurt.
Ritter and Winkler are the best TV actors of all time. There's no beating Jack Tripper and the Fonz. So putting them together is sure to be great, right? Them doing a serious movie would be a good change for them, right? WRONG!! I don't get how such good and accomplished actors could do something so bad. This movie is about Ritter's ex-wife who is trying to stay away from her lunatic boyfriend, played by Winkler. Ritter must do all he can to protect his family. This has been done a few times and always comes out with great results. One reason why this is bad is the acting. Everybody acts like such a stunned wussy and they give up on the authority too easily. I did not buy how easily they chickened out and gave up on the authority. If they had any integrity or any self respect, they would have fought for justice. Then there was Winkler who I thought was the only good actor. The rest of my family thought he was as bad as the rest. I guess it was just because he was the only interesting person. Sure he was the villain, but he provided the cool factor. So if he wasn't good, at least he was cool.
On the upside, the cinematography and filming did a great job in creating excitement and capturing the suspense this movie was going for.
