      John Anderson Newsday A well-meaning but unstable hand at the tiller, and a propensity for charting plot points, rather than a clear narrative destination. Rated: 2/4 Jun 29, 2012 Full Review Kyle Smith New York Post If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef "Mighty Fine" has some quiet charms. Rated: 2.5/4 May 25, 2012 Full Review Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times "Mighty Fine," unfortunately, isn't. Rated: 2/5 May 24, 2012 Full Review Jack Fleischer Battleship Pretension While I might enjoy the acting and the people in Mighty Fine, the problem is that this story doesn't come together. Mar 24, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com A singularly ineffective and indistinct coming of age tale that moonlights as a character study. Jul 25, 2019 Full Review Brent Simon Shared Darkness A somewhat drab and unimaginative telling further dents this dull melodrama of already rather limited psychological insights, and pat conclusions and catharses.

      Audience Member I think Mighty Fine is intended to be a coming-of-age drama. It features a voiceover from one of the daughters in the film recounting these things as though she is an older woman now looking back on her past. However, the girls don’t do a whole lot in the film and there are many scenes with the father alone because it’s really Chazz Palminteri’s movie. The main thrust of the story is that this father is a bit crazy and taking it out on his family. The way his moods shift so dramatically it feels like he might be a bit bipolar and he is also struggling with some significant anger issues. I also got the impression that he was spending money a bit too freely, but they never did a good job of showing his financial situation getting the better of him. If that’s a key plot point you typically see bill collectors pounding down the door, things being repossessed, or at the very least the main characters agonizing over stacks of unpaid bills. I didn’t see any of that in this movie, so I think it failed to deliver the story effectively. IMDb also labels Mighty Fine as a “Comedy” which I can only imagine is because of Andie MacDowell’s laughable attempt at an accent. I’ve heard actors struggle with this kind of language work before, but this accent came and went with each sentence, and always made me chuckle when she overdid it and sounded like the parody of someone from a random European country. The rest of the movie is like a Lifetime drama, and not a good one either. The one positive was that Mighty Fine was short, otherwise it’s not worth anyone’s time. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/02/20 Full Review Audience Member kind of depressing,but an easily watchable flick.keeps you interested by being common day-realistic to say the least. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Mighty Fine! Let me start by saying its no comedy its a drama through and through. The story is about a man and his family of wife and two daughters and the long and frustrating battle the husband has going through depression of a strong suite. THe husband tries to build a life for his children and his wife and he keeps having problems and then takes it out on his family, This is a mighty fine movie and i have to say the performances by the four family members are crazy good. Chazz Palminteri puts in a worthy Oscar Winning performance and I like this guy from the first performance i saw him in the movie Oscar playing a butler for Sly Stallone. The sad part of this movie this kinda depression can effect anyone and anyones family members what should happen as it did in the movie and sometimes we are not soo lucky but getting help for the members that need it has to happen quick so they can get back on track and progress with their lives. Not suitable for the kiddies. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member good period piece com-dram Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a comedy! Depressing story of a troubled family. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member In the beginning, there was only darkness. Only thoughts and dreams floating through the vast emptiness that was. Until, like that of a beautiful sunrise, our glorious lord and savior, the almighty ogre, Shrek, was born of these thoughts and dreams, of those whom had not yet come to be. Shrek is infinitely knowledgeable, and the all powerful ruler of the universe. For several thousand years, Shrek would pleasure himself in solitude, and he would dream about what could be, and what will be. Until, he grow so tired of masturbating, that he decided to try anal fisting. So large was his fist, so intense was the struggle. The shit that he shat was so glorious, that it flew across the emptiness, and so strong was his passion, that most of his shit was set aflame. After one huge push, his stomach was empty, and the Earth was formed from the last piece of shit that came from his rectum. And from his anus flowed blood, like that of a forest stream on a summer day, and this blood formed the oceans on earth. Shrek was so pleased with the outcome, that he created the Dinosaurs, with which he lived with for many years. He would pleasure himself with the large reptilian beasts, until one day he let out such a fart that he wiped them out. For many years again, Shrek was lonely, until from the ashes of the dinosaurs came mankind, a new race of intelligent beings. Shrek now used them to please his desires, and those remained loyal to Shrek, and those who were worthy of him, would sometimes receive a visit from the burly ogre. But unfortunately from the race of mankind came the everlasting evil that is Farquaad, who despised ogres, and swore to defeat our lord. Shrek and Farquaad still clash to this day, and Shrek will forever protect us. And from here we tell of the exciting adventures of our lord Shrek, and his sub-deities, Puss and Donkey.
