Bad Film, Made Worse by Palthrow

Reading through the reviews of 'Proof', it seems most of the better reviews are from 2006 or earlier. Maybe its taking this long for the movie-going public as well as Hollywood casting agents to realize how mediocre Ms Palthrow is. Gwen isn't terrible is this role, she's just average, while the role calls for a better actress. I certain many were available.

With what we now know about what occurred on the casting couch at Miramax, it begs the question, what did Gwennie have to do to get this role?

Aside from, that, the premise of the film is just silly. Are we really to believe the most advanced mathematicians on the planet look like Gwyneth Palthrow or Jake Gyllenhaal? Its a lot like 'Good Will Hunting', its a laughable premise.

I give this 2 stars because of the fine performances (as usual) for Hope Davis and Anthony Hopkins. Their talents were wasted on this stinker.

Gwen is a Genius Brainiac Beauty!

Big day for race fans kids! Gwenneth has to figure out how to act like a genius that is humble, absolutely gorgeous but not worthy of any praise, kinda like downplaying how stunning beautiful you are on screen and be coquetish, clueless and alarmingly charming. Do you need an advanced degree in Physics or Chemistry to appreciate the spectacular fireworks that unfold in the genius that is Anthony Hopkins? No sirree, all you have to do is suspend your belief that true brilliance is an aberration fraught with instability, self adulation and insanity and you're halfway home. Hard to keep count of all the hotties in the Math department, well maybe the Computer Science geeks could eek out a dashing formidable run for the money?

Those of us who crave real conversation and a spark of life among the shadows will once again fall into despair believing no one in Hollywood will ever serve to educate, inspire, let alone entertain those whoe have a titch more than a room temp IQ. But for those of us who comprehend that Math is theee language of love will continue to foray for those minute details, subtle hints and secret code words to elucidate a modicum of spark, ignition and fire! I look forward to the stage play that hones it all in for our conspicous consumption and well deserved applause. I could barely finish this film it was too cooked, brittle, albeit more of a showcase for known talent. And who deals with Differential Equation concepts in Grad School, sheesh that's thrid grade material!

Mild, emotional and somewhat inspiring.

The film gives a really good psychological and character story of Catherine, portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow. Her emotions, her frustrations, her sacrifices - everything were put really well in the film. That's the central part of the story and the film doesn't diverge a lot from the main story. The reasons behind her present state has been explained in a really convincing way. The characters Harold, Robert and Claire do provide a decent support to the film. The film wasn't unnecessarily edgy, doesn't even try to be so. This film also portrayed a geeky math student, someone desperately trying succeed as a mathematician and a successful mathematician in a very very realistic way. No other film having mathematics as a major part of their story has done these type of characters any more justice. To someone who has no idea about the "real world" of mathematics, these stuffs may be a little too much but for someone who does, it's really convincing. It shows what a person truly passionate about mathematics can be like. However, the main "mathematics" in the film is merely a fiction. It doesn't have even a bit of realism. Some storylines feel a bit unnecessary and some parts are really dragged. The real mathematics featured do show inconsistencies in what is being studied and what's being noted. Those "mathematics" parts will be noticeable only if you have a proper idea of mathematics. Otherwise, those flaws do not make the storytelling bad but it would've been better if there were some accuracy.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins and especially Jake Gyllenhaal give really great performance. Gyllenhaal nailed his role as Harold.

Score : 7.8/10

Grade : A-
