Good concept confusingly executed
Just having funny and tragic elements in a movie doesn’t make it dark comedy; that takes a careful and very talented touch. Think Death to Smoochy, Harold and Maude, or Mel Brooks’ To Be or Not To Be. But Beatriz at Dinner is just an admixture of the extremes that beats you upside the head. You can’t be sure what you’re getting hit with, and the elements don’t make a greater whole. The premise is a class contrast. Hayek’s healer/masseuse is befriended and employed by a couple whose child she helped through the post-chemo misery of Hodgkin’s cancer treatment. Her car breaks down at their wealthy-enclave home, and they invite her to stay for an important dinner with their super-wealthy patron. Hilarity and tragedy ensue. Weird moment that may demonstrate my point: Beatriz is portrayed both as a deep, sensitive and capable healer, and as an airhead. Someone at the dinner table describes a painful kidney stone incident, and, trying to contribute from her field of expertise, she chimes in with a holistic-sounding remedy, a tea made from beets, rhubarb, and dandelion flower. Those are on the rogue’s list for kidney stone sufferers: they’re among the six things that generate kidney stones at a rate 10 times more intense than the second tier of danger. So it could be an obscure inside joke, horrible research, or a loop they intended to close later but left on the cutting room floor.
Don’t go see this movie. Just eat a $10 bill instead. You will still come out ahead.
I was so upset about this movie that I almost asked the theater for my money back.
The movie starts out promising, but heavy handed- Selma Hayek does a great job of portraying a two dimensional brown woman who eschews make-up, high heels and pretensions. Instead she’s a ‘healer’ who loves her goats and thinks that the world needs help, but in this non-concrete, ineffective tree hugging hippie sort of way.
The other characters are similarly two-dimensional, rich tropes trying to have a good time chatting about nothing while Selma ‘ruins the party’ with her awkward conversation about heavy topics.
No one is relatable in this film.
The plot drones on and it’s like watching a train-wreck of awkward personal interactions. Its mostly boring but uncomfortable, even when there are confrontations and ‘sparks fly’.
Then after all of that, the ending is THE WORST. For whatever reason while the happy rich white people are lighting lanterns, she decides to go drown herself in the ocean which ends the film. This makes no sense and is just pathetic. Even my bad ideas are better than this, and I don’t make them into movies.
This movie was so bad that I made an account with IMDb just so I could warn other people about how awful it is. Please don’t go see this. Just have a drink instead.
