  • El Biffo's rating of the film Happy Tears

    This film is wouldn't have been that great, but the over-the-top performances by Ellen Barkin and Rip Torn make it so worthwhile. The screenshot above shows Parker Posey and Demi Moore, who aren't that great at all. In fact, they are kinda washed up, maybe they could run for president of the United States. Ellen Barkin needs to keep making films, though! I loved her in this film, she was hilarious!!!
