31: My Review on Sweet Nothing In My Ear
Posted by ridor9th on April 21, 2008
How come I hadn’t updated anything in days? Because I am bored with y’all. Because I can. Because I have better things to do, really. 😉
Otherwise, today, I had to blog. About this film: Sweet Nothing In My Ear which was featured on CBS-TV tonight.
What do I think of the plot? Much Ado About Nothing. Same, same, same, same. It reeks of Deafread.com’s drama with CI stuff which I have no interest in. Any discussion about the CIs can euthanasize me so faster than any lethal injection would do so!
However, I must grade each actor … you know me, I’m brutal and picky about these in terms of how they acted, portrayed, signed and yes, fingerspelled.
Jeff Daniels? Did you see his signs? Too choppy. Fingerspelling? Unreadable. Believable enough to believe that he’s the father of a deaf son and the husband of a deaf wife? No. Grade: F.
Phyllis Frelich? This woman roused me the day I first saw her on ‘Love Is Never Silent’ — Her facial expressions, her signs — everything about her? Who cannot dislike her? Grade: A.
Ed Waterstreet? Perhaps the most important ingredient in any deaf-related film is to fingerspell clearly — I mean, in clear and concise way where you can understand even the hands are about 4 inches in size on the television — Ed can do that. Grade: A.
Marlee Matlin? Top-notch actress in her own right. She did her best in dealing with a husband whom could not sign nor fingerspell well throughout the film. Grade: A.
Noah Valencia: Initially I thought Noah has the looks for films. I was wrong. There is something about his looks that does not seem to fit in. Maybe it is his growth spurt that does that. I feel there is something missing about Noah that could have done much better. Grade: C.
Shoshannah Stern: This woman is getting better as time passes by. This time, she speaks and shows her CI is simply funny. How she manages to do that is beyond me. Grade: B.
Deanna Bray: Nice actress — bit boring at times. But I hate the line where she uttered, “Actually, I’m hard of hearing.” Just shut up already! Deaf is deaf is deaf. Hard of hearing is just another term to exonerate themselves that they are not deaf. Please. Grade: C.
Plot? Grade: D. You know, the father, Dan Miller, whined that he has a deaf son, he wanted a child that reflects him — the one that can hear like him. My first thought was: Ahh, you don’t need to borgize Adam, just fuck Laura several times — get her pregnant several times — I can vouch that the likelihood of having hearing children are much higher should they get more children!
See? There! Problem solved finish! That was so easy. I could have written it much better than ’em … I see that DeafRead.com continues to be plagued with CI drama these days. And you wonder why I read PerezHilton everyday? I read DeafRead.com once or twice a month. That says a lot.
Ack! Hallmark.com is going to sell the DVD of ‘Love Is Never Silent’ in June, 2008! That IS the one I had been waiting for years.
