Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening in ‘Jerry & Marge Go Large’: Film Review
A Michigan retiree with mad math skills finds a loophole in the lottery and uses the winnings to
resuscitate his struggling small town in David Frankel’s comedy for Paramount+, based on a true story.
Don’t be deceived,
Jerry & Marge Go Large
Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar
The title appears to promise a raucous caper, but unless you’re
tickled by endless shots of Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening
chortling away while exchanging the kind of twinkly-eyed, adoring looks
that ought to be outlawed for couples married 46 years, the amusement is spread awfully thin.
David Frankel continues coasting on his
Devil Wears Prada
rep, between TV gigs
and unwatchable features (
, anyone?). But this utterly toothless, glorified Hallmark movie for Paramount+ proves the director is only as good as his material.
