134. The Beaver

Watched the Beaver. In this movie Walter, played by Mel Gibson, gets really, really depressed and basically has a mental breakdown--maybe not that far from reality. Just before he goes to end his life he discovers a beaver puppet.

The Beaver saves his life and becomes a living entity attached to his body at all times. He tells everyone that the Beaver is prescription therapy and he interacts with everyone through the beaver. He becomes so attached the to the Beaver that it eventually begins to be less helpful and more harmful. I won't spoil it for you, but it keeps things interesting.

My wife, Christiana, thought that this movie was totally depressing, but I thought that it was funny at parts. I guess that's what you get with a dramedy. This movie just shows you how great of an actor Mel Gibson really's a shame that his personal life is such a mess.

Final Verdict: Worth watching but the jury is still out of owning this one.

  1. Too Right! I definitely thought that this movie was depressing! There were a few funny parts but the overall mood was depressing, but I guess that is appropriate since it was a movie about depression.
