Martian Child........

This is one of the year's best.
A true sleeper. As the studio did next to nothing to promote the film.
Why should they? There were no vampires, zombies or spike heeled black belt, bionic zombie killers.
Cusack was, well great. One of our most under-rated Gen X actors.
The kid, Bobby Coleman, I've never seen before, was perfect. Reminded me of a thick lipped Home Alone kid, before he did all those drugs....
Anjelica Houston, small role as the evil publisher, toward the end was her usual entertaining self.
The plot is now, disalogue crisp, not over done, yet endearing and classic.
Oh yes, Cusack's sister (?) Joan did a great job as well. The comedic chemistry between them is priceless.
You can take the kids, grandparents, and your favorite alien, or member of the Bush administration. Whichever you prefer.
5 Stars...
