Broken Flowers – A Really Bad Movie

Broken Flowers Netflix description: “After being dumped by yet another girlfriend, serial bachelor Don vows he’ll be alone forever. But when an anonymous letter informs him he has a 19-year-old son, Don sets out on a cross-country journey to confront his past — and a few old flames.”

This movie stars Bill Murray, a well known and capable actor. Why he agreed to take this role is a mystery to me. He must have needed the money. The movie starts out with an interesting puzzle. Does the protagonist really have a son? Who is the mother? His search for the answer brings no answer to those questions and does bring the viewer to wonder what purpose this movie serves. Nothing is revealed about his past girl friends and nothing is revealed about Don.

My daughter’s boy friend said he thought it is a comedy. I thought think it is a waste of film and talent.
