Tavern (1999) is described as "A touching slice of life drama
with a basis in reality" in an IMDB comment.
|Two men borrow money to
buy a tavern, even though they no nothing about running a business.
The man they buy it from opens a new joint in the same neighborhood,
and takes all the business with them. So they should go broke and
loose all their money, right? They do.
|Kym Austin plays romantic
opposite to Cameron Dye, one of the owners, and shows one
breast in bed with him.
||Ten IMDB readers have it at 7.2/10,
but that can't possibly last. There is nothing especially wrong with
the film, but there is nothing really right about it either. It is
about as exciting as watching paint dry.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, this film is a C-.
