But possibly not wrong.Magnolia is my favorite PTA movie, but I've always really grappled with the over-the-top characterization of Linda Partridge. I think it may just be the one he dropped the ball on, while juggling such a huge tapestry of characters and their arcs. Probably put too much faith in the idea that Moore could just "make it work" (and when she DOES -- in the pharmacy scene and the scene slapping Phil -- it's incredible). The meltdown scenes in the doctor's and lawyer's offices are redundant. Michael Murphy as the lawyer could/should have been cut, but I'm sure PTA had an inability to see through his affection for Altman connections.
