Rebecca De Mornay,
Reuben is a drinker and brawler who runs afoul of the law and lands a long prison term. He leaves behind Roberta, his companion and mother of a brood of nine. Also part of the extended family is Beal, who becomes Roberta's sometime lover and possesses the famous Bean short fuse. All this is observed by Earlene, a neighbor under the thumb of a strict religious father. Her dad warns her against any contact, but, despite the Beans' crude ways, the young woman is drawn to them; their earthiness, directness and unity stand in sharp contrast to her oppressive family life.
Don't Judge my Intelligence by the Amount of Stars I Gave this Horrid Film.
Okay. This is probably one of my favorite books of all time. I can't even begin to explain how they screw this up in the movie. I sat down, EXCITED and watched this film, and got up DEPRESSED and wanting to cry. It wasn't as if I was depressed by the sad content of the film, but the quality made me physically ill. Don't waste your time on it. The only reason why I gave it that one star is because the book deserves ten. The actors in this movie couldn't work out of a paper bag. I kept screaming "Where's Keanu!?" and "Why! Why!" I wish they wouldn't of made "Beans..." into a film, because this book is the one book I wanted to turn into a movie. And I think that with my minimal movie making skills, mine would look like "Citizen Kane" compared to this elementary garbage.
