Tonight I watched 1994’s Nobody’s Fool starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith.Â It occurred to me that I have also recently seen the action movie 2012.Â 2012 cost tens of millions of dollars to make, there are buildings falling down and volcanoes erupting and tons of amazing special effects.Â For most of Nobody’s Fool it’s just Paul Newman driving an old truck and having funny conversations that could only take place in a small town.
Guess which movie is better?
I hadn’t seen it in a long time, and while watching it I remembered that my father thought it was just hysterical that a one-legged man lost his artificial leg in a poker game.
Philip Seymore Hoffman is just great in a small role as a town deputy.
If you’ve never seen it, consider it highly recommended.
