1.0 out of 5 stars Forgiveness: GOOD! Personal responsibility: BAD! Jan. 6 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Writer/Director Michael Bortman brings us a movie which will be loved by everyone who feels that the number one thing you could ever do in your life is support your family. On the surface, that may not sound like such a bad thing. After all, everyone wants to be loved and supported by their family. However, "Crooked Hearts" goes WAY past that.
The movie follows the ups and downs (mostly downs) of the Warren family. The members of this family are the type of people who would support their brother or son even if they were a convicted serial child molester. That's how obsessive and blinding their family structure is. I could never feel connected to any of the characters in this film because only one of them seemed like a nice person. To make things worse, the one nice guy is presented to us as being weak and childish.
Almost everyone in the Warren family is dishonest and selfish. In fact, at one point in the movie, being an arsonist is presented to us as simply being a very minor character flaw. This pathetic situation spirals out of control until tragedy strikes the family in one of the absolute most manipulative scenes EVER put to film.
The acting is quite good. That shouldn't surprise anyone who glances at the list of cast members. However, anyone who believes that taking responsibility for your actions is a positive trait will not enjoy this movie. Its "ethical" stance is completely at odds with anyone who believes you should be honest, thoughtful and stand up for what you believe in.

The cast features up-and-comers who have up-and-come, like Peter Berg (here Pete Berg), Noah Wyle, Joshua Jackson, and more. It also has Jennifer Jason Leigh doing her usual fine job with a limited part, considering she's second billing in the film. My favorite line is JJL's to Peter Berg (her boyfriend as the film unfolds) when he talks about how weird his family is. She replies "unlike you, I'm not intolerant of weird." Worth seeing, especially for JJL fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars great caracters, great acting Nov. 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I am suprised that none of the other reviewers mentioned Juliette Lewis. She had a few great moments in this moovie and it was the first time i ever saw here. All the actors and actresses in this moovie have become more popular and all are quality actors. I think this movie was kind of a stepiing stone for Jennifer Jason Lee's comeback in backdraft.
The interplay between caracters was great. Very realistic diolog for some very intense situations.
