         The lyrics in "Red Bean" suddenly flashed into my heart after watching this movie. Although the absurd stories and characters in the film are completely out of line with such lyrical and affectionate expressions, although such a film is not about love.

      EVERYONE IS "ONE AND ONLY"

      On the journey of life, we look for people we can rely on, but in the end we find that the only person we can really rely on is ourselves.
      The heroine is a super unreal woman, she feels that her beauty is forever, she feels that as long as she looks for it, she can find her love and life. But the reality is. . . . She kept failing.
      Her two sons, the eldest son's character is like her, sensitive, romantic and fanciful. . . . The younger son is more realistic. When the eldest son's...

      We can live just fine on our own

      After watching the film, I became a huge fan of Renee Zellweger, who played Anne with a southern aristocratic temperament. I have to say that she showed Anne's pride and aristocratic temperament vividly. When she came back early to see her husband Dunn cheating on other women at home, she was not hysterical. Instead, she helped the little actor to zip up the skirt when she couldn't. It was really cool to watch. Dunn thought it would be OK to comfort Annie, but how could it be...

      my only: my one and the only

      It may be that I have been relatively quiet in my own world recently, or it may be that I have been lucky recently and can come across a good movie almost every day.
      In my boring life, at least that's the way it is now, a good movie can fully immerse me in this unreal world for two hours without looking at the endless forest outside the window and the white snow on the ground.
      If I have a premonition that this is a good movie, I will turn off the lights and enjoy it.

    Behind the scenes gags

    Creative background

    The film's story was inspired by an interview between Evening Entertainment host Merv Griffin and actor George Hamilton, who together retraced Hamilton's early days with his mother and previous experience. After listening to Hamilton's narration, Griffin realized that it was a good source of material, worthy of being brought to the big screen. Screenwriter Charlie Peters loved the story of the legendary character and was quick to build...

    Evaluation action

    Structurally, the film's script strictly adheres to the principles of a Hollywood comedy film, but it's generous enough to add some funny dialogue and gags to the story to make the audience smile, although there's very little to make the audience laugh. The jokes are also far apart. Richard Loncraine's directing is effective and perceptive, if a little imperceptible, but it represents a real improvement in his directing talent, which...

    Movie quotes

    • Bill Massey: As a man, there's only one thing you need to know about a woman.

      George Devereaux: What's that?

      Bill Massey: They're never the right temperature.

      George Devereaux: No?

      Bill Massey: Something to do with their plumbing. Reproduction. Whatever reason, most of the time... they're either too hot or too cold. Mostly too cold. So what you have to do... is carry a sweater or a jacket or something with you at all times. Something you can keep in the trunk of your car... or in your closet at work... for when their thermostat gets messed up.

      George Devereaux: What else?

      Bill Massey: That's it. Once you've got that covered... there's nothing else you need to know about a woman.

    • Paula: Have you ever seen breasts?

      George Devereaux: Sure... one.

      Paula: You saw one breast?
