Cute But No Cigar
9 September 2013 | by (Canada Toronto Ontario) – See all my reviews

This was a nice 1970's movie even though it was made in 1980. The little girl who played The Kid,(Viola Kates Stimpson) appeared to be a seasoned actress even though this was her first and last movie role. Too bad, because she showed a great presence on the large screen. Walter Matthau playing the cantankerous unhappy bookie who falls for The Kid was believable and quite touching.

Supporting characters Tony Curtis as the mobster killer with his muscle Brian Dennehy , as well as Bob Newhart playing Walter Matthau's right hand man, and rounding up the stellar cast, Julie Andrews, whose horse farm was slowly being taken over by the mobster Tony Curtis, were all great supporting actors.

This is very light movie fare, and you won't need any facial tissues for any sad tug at your heart string scenes, but what you will get is a 70's style THE STING type movie that is enjoyable for the whole family.
