"The Prince of Tides": God, I LOVE this piece of trash

I really love this movie, it is perfect for when you want a Lifetime paint-by-numbers weepie but don't want to feel so guilty afterward. Some of the dialogue is so overcooked I chuckle: "I don't know when my parents began their war against each other - but I do know the only prisoners they took were their children." I think he's speaking in metaphor! Exactly the type of thing an uneducated frau from Brooklyn would consider great writing. Now, Babs does a very good job in the role (more on that later), but her directing is as delightfully subtle as a car crash. I'm surprised she didn't just ask Jeroen Krabbe to grow a mustache so he could twirl it. Nolte and Nelligan escape by the skin of their teeth through sheer talent. And Lowenstein has to be the WORST shrink in NY if she couldn't figure Tom's sister out way before he shows up. At last - the NAILS, the LEGS, and the sheer vanity of Babs is the cherry on top of the cake that has already been soaked in sugar syrup.
