Critic Reviews for To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday
A bargian basement Ghost, a hybrid of the earnest nature of an inspirational play and the sleek calculation of a Lifetime TV movie.
The movie lurches to its sentimental conclusion via several dead-end plot ideas that are introduced but not developed.
The film is cursed with clumsy staginess, exposing its roots as a play.
Based upon a stageplay, the plot is very straightforward and predictable, and has no strong emotional payoffs, but the drama is stuffed with the feelings and confusions of grief and some viewers may find sufficient solace in that to respond to the film's
Tries too hard to make the audience cry; practically each 'emotional' moment is highlighted by the soft musical sounds of a harp and wind section.
Audience Reviews for To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday
Some movies are harmless and well-meaning enough to be enjoyable even if they fail to be "good" movies. To Gillian is not a "good" movie by the conventional standards and did not fair well with either mainstream audiences or critics. But, I like this movie. I like the relationships and some of the issues they attempt to address. There are a few moments of truth in this film. Plus, it takes place on Nantucket Island, which makes this movie very easy to watch. The beach, the moonlight, the gentle drama. This is a harmless movie that is worthwhile, even if it's not groundbreaking.
When the best thing you can say about a film is that it has beautiful location filming you know the movie's in trouble. Gooey and too precious by half.
this movie is about a guy whose wife died and although she died two years ago, Gillian Lewis (Michelle Pfeiffer) is still very much alive for her grieving husband, David (Peter Gallagher who lives with his 16year old daughter on Nantucket island and spends time with his imaginary wife every night on the beach. His life has basically stopped and his concerned sister in law (with husband and blind date for Peter) show up for the Labor Day Weekend. this movie is touching and moving as it deals with the emotions of letting go of the past and those left behind.
