Critic Reviews for T.R. Baskin
Peter Hyams' debut production is handsomely mounted, but his screenplay is sterile, superficial and inconsistent.
Peter Boyle, as the salesman, and James Caan, as the swine, do the best they can, which is extremely well indeed, but the movie's clumsy feints at sophistication and its grotesque sentimentality prevail.
T. R. Baskin is never at a loss for words, most of which sound as if they had come straight from the notebook of a writer who spent most of time jotting down funny lines without ever worrying much about character.
The problem is that everyone in the movie acts so stupidly. Real people of average intelligence would have cut through this plot in about three minutes, and the movie would have been over.
Although she raises some interesting questions, Bergen's character evokes neither the sympathy nor the interest intended.
