It was good, but…
As I sat down to watch the 2022 comedy “Sam & Kate” from writer and director Darren Le Gallo, I must admit that I had some expectations to the movie. Sure, I hadn’t heard about the movie prior to getting the opportunity to sit down and watch it. But seeing that the movie had the likes of Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek on the cast list, of course I had to give it a chance.
The storyline in “Sam & Kate” is actually interesting and nicely written by Darren Le Gallo. I enjoyed how the narrative in the movie was something very relatable and realistic, and it made for a very down to earth viewing experience. However, I must admit that I felt that the end of the movie felt rushed, as if they were running out of funds and had to close down production post haste.
The acting performances in “Sam & Kate” were good. And the movie is nicely carried by the cast ensemble, which includes the likes of Henry Thomas, Tyler Labine, Schuyler Fisk and Jake Hoffman, not to mention Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek, of course.
I was genuinely entertained by Darren Le Gallo’s movie, though I wasn’t fond of the ending. But if you enjoy a feel-good drama, then you definitely should watch “Sam & Kate”. Now, the movie is listed as a comedy, but this is not the type of comedy that will have you toppling over laughing. Nay, this is more of a drama laced with comedy elements.
While “Sam & Kate” certainly is watchable, this is hardly a movie that warrants more than just a single viewing.
My rating of “Sam & Kate” lands on a six out of ten stars.
Entertaining and a good senior date movie
As a married senior, this was our weekly date movie and a very appropriate one. Instead of romcom, I’d call this one a “rom-dramedy”
Sam & Kate had the novelty of starring the great Oscar-winning Dustin Hoffman (Bill) and Sissy Spacek with their children. Both “courtships” and their preludes were interesting. Nicely intersecting slices of life. Although an ensemble piece, Sam (Jake Hoffman) is probably the main character in the film and has the most screen time. Perhaps ever-so-slightly over-theatrical at times, Jake has otherwise nailed the character and holds our attention. Kate also is interesting and is very mysterious about revealing her back story. Her relationship with her girlfriend and partner Mary at the bookstore is also pleasant. Mary helps facilitate the relationship at every opportunity.
The central relationship between Sam & Kate has good chemistry, the requisite amount of quirkiness and lots of charm. It also has the usual but maddening ghosting periods of relationship movies where nobody says what they are dying to say to the other person and we go to moody musical montages.
The acting of the four leads and the supporting characters range from very good to excellent with one exception, Henry Thomas from ET fame, 40 years later. He’s Sam’s best friend and a pothead but he’s neither realistic nor interesting. On the other hand, even with little to do in a minuscule role, Tyler Labine is delightful
Dustin Hoffman and Sissy Spacek are excellent facilitators as well as developing a delightfully awkward romance of their own until we approach the denouement. Then he discovers that Spacek has a hoarding issue and the story takes a darker turn and also slows down a bit. I won’t reveal more other than that the final scenes are very satisfactory.
