story of how Sigmund Freud MAY have gotten his start
Imagine my surprise when I saw that Carol Kane was born in Cleveland ! She always plays the wacky, offbeat characters (Taxi, Scrooged, and so many more) with a foreign accent. "Freud" has a similar timing to Blazing Saddles, but with weaker jokes, and relatively unknown actors. Turns out that Greene, the director, was nominated for Oscars in editing... for Blazing Saddles, and MASH ! This was the only film Greene directed, and after watching this, we know why. The jokes and the story move V-E-R-Y slowly. Our star, Bud Cort, (from Harold & Maude) is Freud, and we observe his awkward interactions with everyone as he grows up. Cadavers, family, professors, friends. He realizes he is not cut out to be a medical doctor, and stumbles into psychiatry.
Some funny jokes here and there, and lots of sight gags and plays-on-words. A huge member on a horse, just a couple minutes in, and the nun (Kane) with a megaphone. Chimney sweep jokes. Dick Shawn in some over the top characters... many connections to Mel Brooks here. It gets better as it goes along, fun to watch on a Saturday afternoon. It needed Madeline Kahn or some other big names to zing it up. Caught this one on fox movie channel.
