Based on the # 1 New York Times bestseller “A Man Called Ove,” A Man Called Otto tells the story of Otto Anderson (Tom Hanks), a grump who no longer sees purpose in his life following the loss of his wife. Otto is ready to end it all, but his plans are interrupted when a lively young family moves in next door, and he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol. She challenges him to see life differently, leading to an unlikely friendship that turns his world around. A heartwarming and funny story about love, loss, and life, A Man Called Otto shows that family can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places.




  • So. Many. Trolls. Great heartfelt movie. Hanks at his best.

    By ADJ555
    There are so many whiny trolls on here that call “wok e” on a movie that features people of color or transgender characters. Just amazing. God forbid that we see different people, with different backgrounds, portrayed in a movie. This is a heartfelt and moving film. The writers pour it on a bit towards the end but overall, this will feed your soul and make you want to hug the ones you love.
  • Woke Hollywood at its worst

    By Mr. Venture Reflex
    Suicide, trans, social media influencers, family death, child bearing issues. You name it, they tried to fit it in. They ruined a good movie and book. A man called Ove was a wonderful movie. Otto is Hollywood’s attempt to shove their agenda in your face.
  • Amazingly awful

    By Ol’ Jack Burton
    Noticed it on Netflix and I’m floored in how bad this movie is. The acting,writing,directing just a boring bleak story that doesn’t deliver any entertainment value.
  • Another Tom Hanks Banger

    It's Ok but certainly not one of his better movies
  • Great movie nothing woke about this movie

    By Mr.Harbinger
    I really don’t understand everyone saying “woke” movie all the time. This movie is about a husband who has lost his loved one and want to be with her but life keeps showing home there are things to live for and he is still needed in the world. What’s “woke” about that!
  • Woke garbage

  • Leave Politics out of Entertainment

    Overall I liked this movie, it was sweet and funny with occasional dark overtones. Unfortunately, they had to make one of the characters transgender for absolutely no reason other than they wanted to. I’m personally pretty sick and tired of looking forward to taking a break from the bleak and dismal reality that we’re all forced to endure these days to only continuously be bombarded with someone else's politics. What’s more egregious is that the people making these films are so infatuated with their own sanctimonious beliefs that they’ve disconnected from their larger audience. Most people in this world have bigger problems than worrying if someone is allowed to mutilate their body or not. In a world where folks are struggling to buy food, where veterans are ignored and treated as second class, where our politicians are repeatedly showing their own incompetence, where the average American regardless of race or gender can’t afford a home, trans ideology is not at the top of anyone’s list except the privileged people who obviously don’t care about anyone else.
  • A lot of conservative snowflakes in the reviews

    By Homida Homida
    This is a pretty good movie, but I like it even more given the amount of triggering it appears to doing to our fragile buddies on the right. There is really nothing “woke” about the movie, but that is their new favorite echo chamber catchphrase so they just parrot it out like the good sheep they pretend to hate.
