Gordon (1998)

1998 - The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit - A cute, happy little movie. Edward James Olmos steals the show as the homeless Vamanos and is endlessly entertaining to watch. Gordon effectively creates tension over the rather silly idea of not wanting to see a white suit get stained. The movie was a little too "play-y" for my taste. You can tell the screenplay was based on the play, rather than Bradbury's actual story; the characters tend to talk in that yappy stage play manner. That style of dialogue is something I don't particularly like, but I have never been a fan of stage acting. Not exactly my cup of tea, but a nice movie nevertheless.
