This film is heartbreaking, frustrating, and ultimately tragic. I don't think it's for everybody. It's very much a "downer" but it tells a great, complex story and it is very moving. Joaquin Phoenix's performance in it is AMAZING- I would watch it for him alone, he's that good in this. The film will not leave you happy and satisfied, however. It's unsettling and deeply moving. Watch it, but just know that it's a great film that gives more questions than answers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Where to start? First,the script is lousy. Second,a nothing 'love story.' Third,the poor supporting cast. Finally,further proof Anne Heche couldn't act her way out of a parking ticket! I can't fault Joaquin for anything except signing on the dotted line. He gives the only convincing performance and his character is the only one you care about.Yet,you don't see enough of him here. This ranks #2 as one of Joaq's worst films ('To Die For' has the dubious honor of being #1). This movie's true crime is it left me feeling empty. Indeed,I wasn't even challenged by the 'moral dilemma.' If you want to see Joaquin in a better film that will leave you feeling challenged,pick up 'Quills.' It's better written,the cast is great,the moral dillema is better dealt with,and you get more Joaquin. I know 'Quills' is graphic,but be brave! As for 'Return to Paradise,' it leaves you with nothing to ponder,nor does it reveal answers to the questions it's allegedly asking. Vote with your wallet or time and say no to 'Paradise.'
