Mrs. Harris back to product details

Glum 'n Dumb -- Movie & Characters

As good as Annette Bening & Ben Kingsley are in this HBO bio film of an event (rather than of people, as was the company's earlier "Warm Springs" or "The Life and Death of Peter Sellars"), MRS. HARRIS is finally way too bland & uninteresting to merit the time spent. Though it details the enormously unhealthy relationship between the (in)famous Scarsdale diet doc and his mistress of several years, it doesnt do much more than take us over the same tired ground we already know.

Crappy relationships ought to be more awful, or maybe more fun, or at least less tiresome than what we see here. That the made-for-cable movie received some Emmy nominations (most foolishly for Ellen Burstyn's "gone in 60 seconds" role) must indicate that this was something less than a banner year for TV. Perhaps writer/director Phyllis Nagy, whose first film this is as director (she's co-written another one--"Found in the Street"--that I don't think was ever released), was not the best choice for either task.
