The Whole Wide World (1996)

THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, a love story left over from last year, is a-
nother go-around with JERRY MAGUIRE's Renee Zellweger and her fun-
ky-looking lips.  The Girl That Makes You Wonder About Collagen 
plays Novalyne Price, the small-town schoolteacher (and aspiring 
writer) who pursued Conan the Barbarian creator Robert E. Howard 
(Vincent D'Onofrio, who also co-produced) during the Depression.  
The story is true, the scenery is nice, and D'Onofrio's rough-and-
tumble character is endlessly interesting.  The second hour is 
sluggish, though, and for a variety of reasons.  In particular, I 
was curious about the passage of time.  Over how many years does 
the story take place?  (Rated "PG"/105 min.)

Grade: B
