A Wrinkle in Time
So it’s fantasy. We all know this from watching the previews. I thought it was okay. Chris Pine does a great job as usual (I’m a fan).
Oprah is Mrs. Which (or witch – I couldn’t tell the difference). The way she was bigger than everybody else just made me think that she told them she would only be in the movie if her part was larger than the others (get it?)
Reese Witherspoon was really ditzy in this movie as Mrs. whatsit. I usually love her acting! I was not happy with the portrayal of her character.
Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who. It wasn’t much of a part. Mostly spoke in quotes when she spoke at all. Seemed a bit pointless other than the gift she gave.
The kids were totes adorbes! My son decided that he was like the cute boy in this film version which I thought was very cute. He looked lost which is probably what he should have looked like. There was a part of the movie where he looks passed out but nobody paid any attention to him. The little kid who was supposed to be 4 and obviously wasn’t was a bit over the top. The girl was perfect for her part.
Zach Galifianakis has a small silly roll but it was a necessity in the movie as it wouldn’t have gone anywhere without that part.
My sons statement: This sucks. Girl is supposed to be ugly with a missing parent. She gets bullied at school. She has a smarter little brother. She gets to be with the most handsome kid from school. She wins over evil. Too cliche. 😂
All and all, NOT worth the $20 spent for both of us at a matinee movie. I should have waited until it came out on Netflix.
