When a somewhat unusual remote control (provided by repairman Don Knotts) transports them from the jaded real world to G-rated TV land, Maguire and Witherspoon are forced to play along as Bud and Mary Sue, the obedient children of George and Betty Parker...

(Yep. That's right! - Corrupted it!)

It was especially the Jennifer "air-head" character who literally slutified Pleasantville in no...

Pleasantville Movie Review by Jarrod (5/30/2008)

'Pleasantville' marked the brilliant debut of Gary Ross, and, to me, was one of the best films of 1998.

Pleasantville Movie Review by Terrence (5/11/2007)

There aren't very many films that share both wonderful visuals and an interesting surreal and heartfelt story.

Pleasantville Movie Review by Jesse (1/4/2007)

This is the most underrated film of the past decade. It's brilliant. Gary Ross is slowly becoming on of my favourite writers. With such great films like Big, Dave, this and Seabiscuit he should be receiving a lot of attention.

Ok. I am going to say it plain and simple: This film should have been nominated for Best...
