The Weather Man

The Weather Man (2005)

Chicago weatherman Dave Spitz (Nicolas Cage) gets one step closer to fame and fortune when he's invited to try out for a spot on a popular national morning show. All he has to do is pull himself together, but that proves increasingly difficult as his marriage spirals out of control and his father (Michael Caine) gets sicker. Dave soon learns that while he may be able to predict tomorrow's weather, he can't stop life from raining on his parade.
My Two Cents: Not sure I buy the elaborate metaphor that it force-feeds, but Cage's performance anchors a surprisingly good movie.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
IMDB Rank: 8/10


Robert's Two Cents: There is a lot of good here, but even more vague mediocrity... perhaps the message just didn't connect with me.

NetFlix Rank: Didn't Like It
