When I Fall in Love (15) (Taylor Hackford, US, 1988) Dennis Ouaid, Jessica Lange, Timothy Hutton, John Goodman. Twenty five years In the life of a sports hero. In Louisana college football Gavin Grey (Duaid) is the king of the field. It’s1958, and love, friendship and sporting excellence are the most natural things in the world. Gavin’s closest friend is his fellow-player Lawrence (Goodman), his most ardent admirer is his cousin ‘Cake’ (Hutton), and his girl is none other than the year's Magnolia Dueen, Dabs (Lange). Everything is colourful, healthy and uncomplicated, but gradually Gavin has to face up to the prospect oi bowing out from the only activity which defines what he is. Loaded up with regulation golden oldies and complete with a don’t-speak-much bit part for Aaron Neville, this is an interesting film but not quite interesting enough. So far as playing 21 year-olds is concerned, both Ouaid and Lange are well past their sell-by dates, but that’s quite forgivable given that the film eventually takes them through to middle age and 1981. What isn’t is
WHEN IFALL IN LOVE
Hackford’s reluctance to square up properly to the movie’s implicit big issue: just what does an All Time Great player do when the final whistle blows? Gavin goes into selling artificial turf, discovers that he’s bankrupt and ends up fronting a restaurant and telling the same old big match stories over and over again. This brings solid lntimatlons of the dangers oi living fast but not managing to die young which Duaid’s fulsomely shallow persona and ready grin are well up to.
Comparing the movie’s original US title ‘Everybody’s All American’ with its romantic renaming here, points to its fundamental confusion of aims. While the fact that it bombed out heavily in the States in 1988 is further proof that box office Hollywood will always celebrate ratherthan even half analyse the myths oi making it big. For that half here maybe we should be grateful. This is a film lull of both gulf and line moments. (Tom Tunney)
