Maggie Moore(s) (2023) Tribeca 2023

In a small desert town sheriff John Hamm has to deal with the death of two women, both named Maggie Moore, which also dealing with the loneliness in his life.

Sweet romantic crime dramedy is allegedly based on a true story, but I doubt the people in real life are as charming as the people on screen. In a weird way we really like everyone, both the good guys and bad guys, all of which who are quirky in ways you only find in Hollywood.

Honestly as enjoyable as this film is, and it is enjoyable to the point you may end up stopping to watch it every time you see it on TV,  there really isn’t much here. John Hamm and Tina Fey play variations of their typical characters. The film feels like it could be part of a dozen other cinematic universes (Hamm is playing this close to Fletch)  where everyone is charming and capable of throwing well written wisecracks. We’ve seen this before any number of times, and while it’s not bad it’s good enough that you will wish there were some flourishes to lift if up from the norm.

Entertaining to be certain, but you not I'm not sure you need to rush out to see it.
