Casting way off!
16 January 2015 | by Jazzie-tooSee all my reviews

Old adage: "Less is more" just didn't work here. Casting Rob Lowe as Kennedy is OK. Looks were right on! Kennedy's Bostonian accent was a little weak, but still OK enough. And his eyes were not the gorgeous blue of Rob Lowe, but rather a greenish, dull gray. And JFK's back aliments were barely addressed with a few needles and syringes and pills. Maybe that was enough. Lowe is very presidential. Miss the West Wing! What I did not like at all was the actress given the role of Jackie. Everything about her was a miss. Her looks, her manner of speech, her tone, her movement, her dress. Her hair! Her looks bothered me the most. There was nothing chic or sophisticated. I strongly feel Jackie's demure looks were part of her everyday look and personality. And I don't recall any portrayals of the wonderful renovations Jackie brought to the White House. William Devane was probably the best impersonator of Kennedy. But he would look too old now. And for Bobby, I've seen excellent portrayals of him, but not here. The guy did not have the stature or charisma. Then there's LHOswald! OMGosh! they needed to mess that guys hair up a bit and get the color right. His face needed a beat-down. They just needed someone else! Then there's the rush to produce this in a very short period of time and make it a less than 90 minute film. Absurd! For sure they're going to be bypassing a lot. Like they didn't know for the last 10 years that the fiftieth anniversary was coming up in 2013! The story just was not adequate. Bill O'Reilly just needed to sell another book! And this one should have just stayed on the shelf!
