Comedy drama directed by Marc Forster. A Man Called Otto (2022) follows Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), a grumpy isolated widower who is very set in his ways with strict routines, and a short fuse. When a lively young family moves in next door, he meets his match in quick-witted and very pregnant Marisol (Mariana Treviño), leading to an unlikely friendship that will turn his world upside-down.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Otto: Don’t you dare let that little rat dog pi** on my walkway again.
Barb: [to her dog] Ignore him, Prince. He has no idea who’s doing that.
Otto: Well, it was one of you.
Otto: You cannot use this road without a permit!
UPS Delivery Driver: Have a nice day, sir.
Otto: You know, the other guys don’t do this. The guys with the white trucks. How come it’s always you brown guys? And I don’t mean that racially!
Otto: [referring to the U-Haul driver] What is he doing?
Man: Parallel parking.
Otto: Parallel to what?
Otto: [visiting his wife’s grave] I’m sorry I didn’t get here earlier. The whole neighborhood is falling apart these days. Got some new neighbors.
Otto: [at his wife’s graveside] Nothing works now that you’re gone.
Luna: What’s your name?
Abby: I’m Abby, O-T-T-O.
Marisol: I brought you some food.
Otto: Okay. Bye.
Marisol: [stops Otto from closing the door] Are you always this unfriendly?
Otto: I am not unfriendly.
Marisol: Okay, you’re not. Every word you say is like a warm cuddle.
Marisol: Can you please give me a ride? I don’t have a license.
Otto: You don’t have a driver’s license? How old are you?
Otto: [to Marisol] I can’t stand watching one idiot trying to teach another how to drive. It’s lesson time.
Marisol: [as Otto is teaching her to drive] I almost hit the car.
Otto: That’s alright. It’s a hybrid.
Otto: [to the cat] No, no, no. You are not taking over my bed.
Otto: [after Marisol asks him to babysit] I’m not sure about this.
Marisol: It’s going to be very fun.
Abby: You did a good job. You should pat yourself on the back.
[Otto pats himself on the back with the dolls hand she gives him]
Clown: I’m Batman!
Children: Hi, Batman!
Clown: You want to see a trick?
Clown: [to Otto] May I borrow a coin?
Marisol: What did you do?
Otto: It was all the clown’s fault.
Marisol: [to Otto] You think you have to do everything on your own. Well, guess what? No one can.
Otto: [referring to his late wife] My life was black and white before Sonia.
Marisol: [to Otto, referring to his late wife] She’s always going to be with you, Otto.
Marisol: My father used to smile like that.
Otto: I’m not smiling.
