Love Song for Bobby Long

In this overcooked gothic melodrama, Scarlett Johansson stars as a trailer trash gal who returns to New Orleans to discover she's inherited a crumbling house from her estranged mother. The house comes with a couple inhabitants as well: a drunken ex-professor (John Travolta) and his scruffy-yet-handsome young protégé (Gabriel Macht from The Recruit). The boys plan to make their new landlord's life so miserable that she gives up the house. But our young gal's sunny attitude proves infectious, and suddenly everybody's going sober and bonding in a family way. The actors try hard and the atmosphere is appropriately grimy, but first-time director Shainee Gabel can't keep the film from meandering and ending up in rather cliché territory. 119 minutes
