Unpleasant people

The movie is about two neighbour families who are unusually close. None of the characters is likable. Hugh Laurie plays a father who has an affair with his teenage neighbour. The teenage daughter is an airhead. His own daughter is envious, spiteful and overweight with strangely shaved eyebrows. I could never tell the wives apart. They are both shrill, overreacting and controlling. The other husband is quite obese. He has a charming attachment to electronic gadgets which befuddle him, the source of most of the humour in the movie. Laurie has a handsome son, who is bland as a bowl of Pablum. He studies commerce. The most colourful character is the daughter's dead-beat ex-fiancé who manically tries to woo her back, reminiscent of Benjamin in The Graduate.

There is one crazy scene when Laurie's wife drives her car to destroy all his elaborate Christmas decorations, then tries to kill him. Not that much else unexpected happens, except opening a bottle of wine with a preposterously complicated electronic opener.

Not as bad as the reviews make it seem

I'm not giving The Oranges an amazing rating out of 10, but it was fine for a Sunday afternoon movie binge. A lot of people are bagging out the premise, but I actually consider it to be a new take on the usual Hollywood BS of an older guy and a younger girl in a relationship. The story typically goes "Older guy falls in love with younger woman and vice versa, and no one really seems to give a crap about the age difference and they live happily ever after". Fortunately, this one is a little more realistic - "Older guy falls in love with younger woman and vice versa, and everyone reacts as you would expect them to - i.e. they freak the s*** out".

It's an enjoyable film that is worth the hour and a half.

Great study for cinephiles

This movie is one of the best examples of,"If it's not on the page... it's not on the stage."

Kudos to the casting director to be able to collect such a strong cast. The script is weak, at best, and it is no less than miraculous it was sufficient to get "yeses". Either a large number of favors were pulled in, or perhaps a truly brilliant strategy of leveraging the first to get the second and third etc.

However, despite the skills and experience of the cast (at least the elder statesman) watching the film is an endless series of cringing, from one awkward and unfunny sentence to the next.

I consider the film unwatchable, but gave it 3 out of 10 because it has value as a teaching film because the script is so many levels beneath the cast.
