This is a cute lighthearted comedy that never really seems to get off the ground Gene Hackman is actually believable as a dying old rich hermit. His character is probably the best part of this movie. The most bizarre thing about this movie is that it really doesn’t seem to have a protagonist. You don’t feel sorry for Weaver’s manipulative character, Liota’s womanizing slime ball or Hewitt’s spoiled rich brat. You definitely feel nothing for Hackman’s undefined character or any one else in this movie for that matter. The only thing this movie does well is show of Jennifer Love Hewitt in an assortment of sexy tops and tight pants. Her breasts have more character than anyone else in the movie and by all means should receive top billing because they are the only thing that are consistent in this poorly written unbelievable movie. While the move does supply a few laughs (not terrible creative ones) it never really seems to be original or does it give you some one or something to cheer for. Grade D-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
