Product Description

Amazon.ca

A strong argument favors Gary Sinise's 1992 Of Mice and Men over the classic 1939 version that critics have historically preferred. As adapted by the great playwright-screenwriter Horton Foote, John Steinbeck's Depression-era masterpiece comes alive with timeless simplicity, more candid in language and behavior, and therefore more honest in its embrace of Steinbeck's beloved pair of lowly dreamers George (Sinise) and his retarded cousin Lennie (John Malkovich). On the lam, they find work as farmhands, joining a close-knit crew and trying to avoid trouble stirred by the dangerously seductive wife (Sherilyn Fenn) of the boss's sadistic son (Casey Siemaszko). There's not a false note or bad performance in the entire film; as veterans of Chicago's acclaimed Steppenwolf Theater, Malkovich and Sinise possess the compassionate chemistry that makes George and Lennie inseparable until the tragic, inevitable final scene. As director, Sinise serves the material with no-frills fidelity; it's easy to believe that Steinbeck would have approved. --Jeff Shannon

My daughter has wanted a copy of this film for years, and has been unable to find one. I helped make her Christmas a little better by finding this and giving it to her.

Most are shy to watch 'the movie' after reading the book. Go for it. It is well worth the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gary Sinise Great March 2 2006
By Peanut
Format:VHS Tape
I have watched this movie twice now and would buy it. It is a very good movie. I like Gary Sinise. I would enjoy seeing the first one, classics are usually the best, but would have to say that Gary Sinise probably would not ruin this classic in any way compared to the ruination of the ones they are trying to do now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Of Mice and Men (1992) April 8 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is okay as far as entertainment goes. But the original version of this movie is FAR better, especially lon Chaney jr.'s performeance. (Remember him? - he played the classic werewolf.) Also good was Burgess Meredith in the original, muc better than Gary Sinese in th 1992 version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended!! July 8 2004
Format:DVD
This Steinbeck classic comes to life with the brilliant acting of Gary Sinise and John Malkovich. This is one time when I can truly say the movie was almost as good as the book!
Malkovich plays main character Lenny to a "T."
All high school English students should see and evaluate this one. It is powerful human drama.

If you have read the book but haven't seen the movie, you are making a (as Donald Trump would say) "HUGE" mistake. Acting was created so Gary Sinise and John Malkovich could play these roles! And I really mean that.
I have read John Steinbeck's novel a few times. I am seriously bothered by the constant "using the Lord's name in vain" in all of Steinbeck's novel, but that doesn't discount the fact that he is a great writer - one of the best of all time. When I finally got to watch the movie, I was blown away by what a great job Malkovich and Sinise did playing their characters. But I was even more blown away by the rest of the actors ability to step up to the plate too. Every character was just as I pictured them in my head.
There are a few scenes that are not exactly as they were in the book: Curley's wife confronts George while he is alone in the barn...that's not in the book. Candy walks in on Lennie and Crook in Crook's room which is not in the movie. But these little changes matter not...the soul of each character is captured perfectly by this amazing movie!
Lennie and George are partners in their walk through life, and they couldn't be more opposite: Lennie (Malkovich) is a child in a big man's body, and George (Sinise) is the quick thinking (though never quite quick enough) sidekick determined to watch after his friend. The two actors are amazing on screen; I could almost swear they were having a contest to see who could actually (really) change in to their character. I think it was a tie!
I wish I could give it six stars - not an option though.
See ya next review!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just About Perfect May 24 2004
By J
Format:DVD
Having read Of Mice & Men several times, I can't imagine a better adaptation of Steinbeck's masterpiece. Malkovich is perfect as Lenny. A tour-de-force. Sinese is equally compelling as George. In a way, Sinese has the harder task. He has to play a normal man who's attachment to a retarded travelling companion is understandable and sympathetic. Themes of loneliness dominate this movie, as they do the book and much of American literature. It's not a feel good movie but it is a brilliant character study and exploration of the human heart.
