Weather Man, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Cheerless dramedy about a melancholy Chicago TV weatherman (Nicolas Cage) who, while mulling a career move, struggles to salvage his relationships with his ailing father (Michael Caine), his soon-to-be-remarried ex-wife (Hope Davis), and their two emotionally disconnected children. Directed by Gore Verbinski with an oddly sympathetic performance by Cage, the film's message that life, like the weather, is highly unpredictable, is weighed down by excessive profanity, a shapeless script and an insufferably gloomy tone. Pervasive rough and sexually explicit language, a sexual encounter with partial nudity, brief violence, an ongoing vulgar gag, a subplot involving abuse of a minor, as well as underage smoking. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
