CARNAGE is a razor sharp, biting comedy centered on parental differences. After two boys duke it out on a playground, the parents of the "victim" invite the parents of the "bully" over to work out their issues. A polite discussion of childrearing soon escalates into verbal warfare, with all four parents revealing their true colors. None of them will escape the carnage.
Stick with it. I have not laughed so hard in a long time. Jodie foster is superb. See this if you like off beat intelligent comedy.
Not for everyone (mainstream) but I absolutely loved it.
Started off with promise with the cast and Roman Polanski as director, but what on earth happened? It deteriorated incredibly badly till it got to the stage of being plain annoying. Supposed to be witty repartee but it missed the mark entirely and just wasn't workable. Ended up reminiscent of what you might expect from the local amateur theatre group. Over-acting and unbelievable characters. The film seemed to be building to something (???) but never got there and the ending was weak. Really disappointing.
On a positive note, this film could be used in drama school as an example of "What Not to Do".
Absolutely uproarious movie. I love how this whole movie was just them talking, but still so funny! Truly brilliant scriptwriter.
