A film that doesn't know whether it wants to be a terrorist thriller or a romantic drama. All the romantic scenes are weepy and overly melodramatic and there aren't nearly enough terrorist scenes. And there's a penis. And, yes, that scene is pretty stupid.

Extraordinary and original for a movie. I've read some reviews that don't think this is special, but look at the pap they usually dish out to us.

The Crying Game is a slow-paced movie, which just dragged on and on. Sure, the twist was great, really funny, but that's the only good aspect of this film. Lots of the movie was confusing, or didn't fit into the story line, and there was lots of unnecessary scenes which were pointless.

Not as good as the BFI makes it out to be, but it does have some really interesting twists. The drama is good, acting on part, but the end result is kind of...shocking. You might like it.

The Crying Game review

Fergus (Stephen Rea), a member of the IRA, have meaningful brief conversations with Jody (Forest Whitaker) who is held prisoner by the group. One of the few stories discussed by Jody is about the Scorpion and the Frog. Jody dies accidentally after a chase and Fergus searches for Dil (Jaye Davidson). Fergus uses the alias “Jimmy” and meets Dil. She sings “The Crying Game” in a bar while Dave bothers her. Jude (Miranda Richardson) comes back to see Fergus to use his services again.

The movie won Best Screenplay, which was very original for its time. A few memorable quotes: Fergus - “As the man said, it's in my nature.” Col – “Who knows the secrets of the human heart?” Dil – “Funny the way things go.” “Nothing is wise.” The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards, including B...

I did not know what it was trying for

A film that I will admit I had no idea what it was trying to be exactly, I did not know what genre is wanted to be. I know it did not really work in any genre because the way it switched around. There were twists and plot elements all which I understood but what I di not understand was what the movie wanted to be. I did not enjoy and it failed to interest me.

Oscar Nominee Best Actor Stephen Rea 3/5- Rea is fine in this movie although later I feel he does partially go into the acting school of just looking tired. But earlier he does some more emotional things that is fully adept at doing. He does not do anything overly memorable in this movie but he does not do anything bad really.

Oscar Nominee Best Supporting Actor Jaye Davidson 1/5- I did not fall for it that's all and had trou...
