Weather Man Review


Dave Spritz (Nicolas Cage) is a television weatherman in Chicago, who is succeeding in his professional life, but failing miserably in his personal life. He and his wife are separated, his children have a variety of problems and his Pulitzer-winning father (Michael Caine) seems to disapprove of everything David does.  

 

Throughout the movie, Dave tries his best to impress his father, help out his children and reconcile with his wife, but things seem to keep going wrong no matter how hard he tries. The novel he writes is awful, he gets into a scuffle with his wife’s new boyfriend and his children do not really want his help.

 

This movie is character driven and Cage does very well in it. There is plenty of comedic moments in the movie, including the numerous times Dave is pelted with food items by passersby. There is also plenty of strong language too. Michael Caine is exceptional as Dave's father.

 

I went to see it and expected a lackluster comedy, but instead, received a well-thought out and delivered movie which was at moments strange, shrewd, comic, and rather moving, which was a pleasantl surprise.
