So on Friday I watched Murphy's Romance. I had been wanting to see it for a while and I moved it up in the netflix queue and I had it at home when a friend came to visit this weekend and so we all watched it. James Garner movies always make me happy. He's such an amazing actor and makes it all seem so effortless. Sally Field does as well. She's always enjoyable to watch in films because she brings so much to it and at the same time makes it look natural as well.
I thought it was interesting that Sally Field's character (Emma) came from Modesto and was starting over in Arizona since I am from Modesto myself and eventually might go to Arizona. :) Although I wouldn't know how to run a farm lol.
Her Ex husband (Brian Kerwin) was fun to watch and wouldn't leave her alone. I liked how Murphy put him in his place and the dancing scene with the two of them was hilarious.
I like romantic movies and James Garner does them well no matter how old he is. I thought that the older man/younger woman plot in this film was nice, you don't always get to see that. There wasn't really anything about this movie that I didn't like. Some of the language I didn't care for, but I can deal with it. Overall rating: 4 out of 5
