Inside Moves (2009)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Feb 03, 2009; DVD Release Date: Feb 03, 2009; Movie Rated: PG; Genre: Drama; With: John Savage

Fresh from a failed 
 suicide attempt, a grizzled 
 space case (John Savage) 
forges friendships with the losers and dreamers who populate a dive 
bar. Some scenes in Inside Moves play like 
the world's teariest Cheers episode, but Diana Scarwid's 
bathos-free (and Oscar-nominated) turn anchors 
a bracing love story. Also impressive are stretches of patient naturalism 
 from Superman director Richard Donner. In the 
 EXTRAS, he recalls that studios were nonplussed by a movie centered 
 on "a whore and a bunch of cripples." B
