Speilberg's worst

Maybe it was simply the way this film was over-marketed, or perhaps it's Spielberg's pathological fix on his childhood, but I found this box-office smash to be unintentionally funny and nauseatingly contrived. It was much like watching a two-hour TV commercial designed for slow-witted children and emotionally-deprived grown-ups who like to pretend they are adults. If your idea of worthwhile film fare is one where every aspect of its construction and presentation has been analyzed and test-marketed for the largest consumer demographic possible, then you're likely to enjoy this multi-million dollar ode to the almighty dollar. Otherwise, you might want to avoid this pretentious turkey at all costs.
