Alan Smithee is honoring June 5th Go Orange! with a review of either A Clockwork Orange (1971) or Orange County (2002). Since much has been written about A Clockwork Orange, and since Alan Smithee has difficulty untangling ACO from his earliest memories of watching it illicitly on the Q Channel, failing to understand it, and noticing only the holes that were cut in a shirt to reveal part of a woman's breasts, he has decided to focus on Orange County instead.
Orange County, a just-okay teen comedy, featured the offspring of both Sissy Spacek and Tom Hanks, either because they are stunningly talented performers, or for some other reason known only to Hollywood insiders. Alan Smithee frankly can't remember Sissy Jr.'s performance, but she takes a nice 8 X 10 glossy. It is interesting to note that she has not continued in film, and recently began recording an album. It must be nice to have options.
Colin Hanks has not fared as well. He lacks some of his father's goodish looks, and much of his talent. He continues to get work, but not in anything you would have seen. But Alan Smithee wishes him well, for Tom's sake, and for the sake of all super-rich sons who live in the shadow of their fathers.
