THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST [1988] movie review

December 31, 2011 · Print This Article

This was another movie with a famous title that I had long heard of, but turned out to be not at all what I expected, and in a bad way.  THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST was not a wacky comedy at all as I thought it would be, but rather a serious drama, and a rather depressing one at that with a main character who was one note the entire movie.  Why would anyone int he world find him attractive or appealing, let alone two very pretty women?

Told by his wife when he arrives home from a trip abroad where he writes books for travelers who actually do not like to travel, that she wants a divorce, the timing of watching this movie was awkward.

He meets a very quirky dog trainer that likes him for some reason.  The rest of the movie is determining who he will ultimately choose to be with.


Got something to say?
