this was watchable but not that great. many scenes were heavy-handed sledgehammers full of shivery crying. it needed a dose of subtlety and / or camp. some cool visuals though and impressive make-up. i really disliked jim broadbent's googly eyed performance. tom hanks was bad as well. the whole 'lemon prize' scene could have been cut. halle berry 70s part was the strongest.
