Playing Mona Lisa Review


Good
Playing Mona Lisa follows the life of Claire Goldstein (Alicia Witt), who slowly unravels as various forces of nature turn against her. Claire's life is not unlike the movie as a whole, which starts off strong but meanders to a non-ending that is unlikely to leave anyone very satisfied.

Weak
Not quite as bad as you've heard, but bad nonetheless. For Richer or Poorer certainly scrapes the bottom of the comedy barrel for Amish humor, done better in Kingpin, without the schmaltz. The story of an estranged husband and wife on the run from the IRS is a throwaway, but this Witness-gone-awry has a few redeeming moments. Probably not one for the permanent collection, but it's better than most sitcoms.
