Pinhole Movie Reviews

Paper Moon by tincolor

Ryan O’Neal and his daughter Tatum O’Neal star in this road movie about a hustler who gives a ride to a recent, fast talking and too-smart-for-her-own-good orphan who also might be his daughter. Part The Sting, part Curly Sue, Paper Moon definitely ranks high on my list of favorite movies. There’s just so much to like, Tatum O’Neal is an excellent child actress and her dialogue with her dad is great. Their cons are all interesting and fun to watch and the story is appropriately touching and funny with all the right timing. I’m going to go out on a limb here and give this a required viewing.

Okay I watched this. Tatum O’Neal definitely is endearing and the duo is kind of fun, but mostly I felt like this movie was a bunch of strung-together hijinks; it didn’t really have the mounting tension that I expect in a movie (as, for example, The Sting. So I guess I’ll say, it’s easy to not pick up on how great this movie is.
