Not a "killer" performance, but ...
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching this otherwise forgettable movie was a revelation, because for years I had been led to believe that Ronald Reagan always played "the good guy" until his role as a crime boss in his last film, "The Killers." Well (to use a favorite Reagan sentence-opener), that's just plain wrong. In "An Angel from Texas," the future president plays a none too likable character. He isn't a villain exactly, because it's not that kind of movie. It's supposed to be a comedy. But Reagan's character is a big-talking, overbearing jerk, the type Keenan Wynn played in so many pictures. It makes me wonder what other oddities I'll discover as I watch more Reagan movies. I guess it just goes to show that you should never listen to the pundits.
