Pay It Forward (2000)
Mimi Leder's Pay It Forward has
got the biggest heart and the most noble intentions. Or so it would want
us think. The premise and performances are good, and the film has its
moments of genuineness and spontaneity but as a whole the film carries
too much message in too many situations. It's as if every character is
doing soul-searching whenever the camera is on them. Kevin Spacey's
performance is good, and both Osment and Hunt have fine moments.
