The Beaver

Jodie Foster directs Mel Gibson in this curious drama about a "hopelessly depressed" toy company CEO who has a mental breakdown. He starts employing a fuzzy hand-puppet to communicate with friends and family. Gibson is arguably well-cast as a crazy ventriloquist, but Foster can't seem to nail down the tone—which starts out quirky and ends up choking on sentiment. 91 minutes PG-13.
