Stars Cannot Rescue Leaden Farce
27 April 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

You know that a film has problems when the first scene is the funniest.After the confrontation between Rutherford and Harker on the one hand and the French custom officials on the other everything goes downhill.The premise for the film has been used before,one of the best examples is "The Whole Towns Talking" with Edward G Robinson.The problem here is that the script is unfunny,the director is no John Ford and Robert Beatty is no Robinson.The director seems to think that directing at a frenetic pace will cover over the cracks,well sadly he was misguided.It is a criminal waste of the talents of Rutherford,Harker and Kent.as for Beatty ,well he should have known better than to attempt comedy.
