Disliking “Benny & Joon” for 19 years

The kick of seeing all the Spokane settings notwithstanding, I've never been able to watch 1993's “Benny & Joon” all the way through. Not in one sitting anyway.

I've probably seen it all by now. But that took multiple 10-minute viewing sessions over the years.

Still, I never fail to marvel at the amazing number of recognizable performers in this movie. I watched it for a few minutes this morning on some cable channel. And had the usual reaction.

What a waste of talent.
