Quotes

Y. Y. Go: Why don't I just boil away, like the green stuff on dirty water? Maybe it's because I have too much juice left. I haven't used up half my heartbeats, or any of my ambition. Maybe I've been... saving something.

ludicrous sound and a laughably loopy script
4 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meredith wrote the script and directed this dog. Although laughably loopy, it's sad to see such a waste of James Mason and Broderick Crawford's talents. The ludicrous soundtrack pops in inexplicably at odd moments.

There's an odd lesbian rape scene and a suggestively kinky gay sex scene with Jeff(rey) Bridges. The only skin you see is on young Asian women in the film who, unfortunately, play slutty, materialistic stereotypes. You won't see Asian males in the forefront of the screen as the characters are played by white actors. This is one movie serious film buffs can pass up.

If you want to see Burgess Meredith at his best, watch him in the film WINTERSET, a compelling drama based on Maxwell Anderson's acclaimed Broadway play. The 1936 version of Winterset, based on the Sacco and Vanzetti case, was Meredith's film debut.
