Specifically, Kevin Kline’s work in “Fish Called Wanda” has destroyed the film of “Sophie’s Choice” for me. We rewatched “Wanda” recently & enjoyed it again, esp. Mr. Kline (“Don’t call me stupid!”). Then last night attempted to watch “Sophie” with my daughter. Couldn’t get past Kline’s first goofy scene. Totally saw his Wanda character instead. Granted, his Sophie character is supposed to be nuts, but not in exactly that funny way.
Anyway, I’ll give up trying to explain - if you’ve seen the movies, you know what I mean. But seriously, “Sophie’s Choice” is totally wrecked as a movie for me now.
Has this sort of thing ever happened to anyone else?
