Random 90s Movie Review #10: The Pallbearer

Chick flick month continues with..

..1996's The Pallbearer, starring our main man David Schwimmer. I had never seen this one before, and was very much convinced that it was a comedy. Like, a laugh out loud kind of comedy. I was also assuming the worst, because it has a lot of bad reviews floating around on the net. Neither of those turned out to be particularly true, though. While there are certainly smile-inducing parts (David Schwimmer/Tom is requested to bring wine to a wedding shower.. he brings wine in a box with a bow on top), it's more serious and reminded me of something more along the lines of Reality Bites. It's about 20-somethings dealing with life. And Michael Rapaport's there!

Why you should watch this movie: You need to find an appropriate way to end the fling you started with your deceased classmate's mother (hint: don't do it by mailing back her charm bracelet with a bad poem).

Why you shouldn't watch this movie: If sitcom-esque misunderstandings snowballing out of control make you want to hide under a blanket, steer clear of this one.

I Heart the Nineties rating: One snap up
