A Sparkling Debut for Sexy and Funny Minnie Driver
27 December 2005 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that Minnie Driver isn't a much huger star than she is. She's sexy, funny, and authentic in every role she plays. This TV movie is her debut, from way back in 1990. The story is set in England in the Thirties, and Minnie is perfect as an outspoken, sexy and fun-loving maid to a poor minister and his family.

GOD ON THE ROCKS is really an adorable film. On one level, it's all about how a little girl learns about life. I'm not a big fan of child actors, but the little girl in this story is perfect -- curious and shy, but also very sensible and thoughtful. The scenes between the serious, sober little girl and the warm, cheerful housemaid are a joy to watch. And the scandalized reactions of the minster's wife (the always captivating Sinead Cusack) are equally priceless.

The one thing I didn't like was that there wasn't a stronger love story for Minnie's character, Lydia. I really wanted to see some strong, stalwart, religious fellow -- young and strong, but a bit bashful perhaps -- warmed by Lydia and utterly captivated by her, and determined to make her his wife. A traditional wedding for the wild and coltish girl who adds flavor to life for everyone around her. That would have been the perfect ending to this wonderful film!
