Good Will Hunting: Drama with lots of language, but good lessons and life values

Updated: Jul 2, 2020

Good Will Hunting is definitely one for the books with Robin Williams and Matt Damon taking the screen as powerful roles, one helping the other who is not having the best life on parole and being a janitor at a local college. After finding out that he has a terrifyingly high IQ, a math professor and a therapist (Robin Williams) go round and round with him, figuring out whatever comes in his path. The script of the movie is what I live for. It was powerful and actually had meaning. Add in actors who know how to act, and you have a terrific movie. I am not that into drama movies, but this one had me engaged all the way through, although it did get just a little boring in the middle. The downsides to this movie are that the f-word is almost used 200 times, and because Matt Damon and Ben Afleck are "new adults" and this was made in 1998, the sexual jokes are slipping in as casual as possible. All the language, unfortunately, makes this movie for older teens to adults, even though it is one of the best movies ever made at a whopping 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. I give this movie, as an unverified rating, a 4 out of 5 stars due to the language and crude humor.

Signing Off,


P.S. Sorry for shorter review today :(
