The Comic Critic Reviews Just Add Water

Just Add Water is pleasant movie. Well, some of the subjects touched on are not pleasant. But, what is pleasant is the nice even pacing of the film. I enjoy a movie that doesn’t hurry itself and has an even approach to the characters that’s in keeping with the storyline. The grittier moments in the film compliment the dark humor that’s constantly underneath the surface, humor that might look possibly look campy otherwise. And that would spoil the tone of the film. This is a quiet little morality film that doesn’t preach or scream. But, while it might have been overlooked in the theater I don’t think it should be overlooked at home. It’s perfect if you want something a little milder than the normal fair but with plenty of heart.
