Right wing groups prevented _Che_ from opening as planned on Memorial Day by threatening to picket any theaters showing the film. See more »

Goofs

When Anita Márquez filled Che's mate bowl, he passed it to her without the bombilla, the metal straw; he then stirred the mate and took a drink. It's not done that way: the bombilla stays in the leaves at all times (no stirring). See more »

Quotes

Che Guevara: The peasant is like a wild flower in the forest, and the revolutionary like a bee. Neither can survive or propogate without the other. There is one essential difference between us and bees, however. In this hive, I will *not* tolerate drones!

historically awful
28 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The few scenes that actually attempt a depiction of revolutionary struggle resemble a hirsute Boy Scout troop meandering tentatively between swimming holes. When Sharif or, please God, Palance try their hand at fiery oratory, they sound like Kurtz swallowing a bug. The displays of strategic brilliance incorporate a map of Cuba replete with smiling fishies in the ocean, and a positively Vaudevillian hypothesis on how the Bay of Pigs came to pass. What does that leave us with? One comical dentistry scene; a surfeit of uppity Hollywood peasants who address the camera as though it were a moving train; and, just for kicks, a passel of homoeroticism that is not limited to Castro's manic and unremitting cigar-fellatio. Never trust a Medved, but even a busted clock is right twice a day: this is a HISTORICALLY awful movie.
