Horrible Casting
31 December 2002 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I just felt like saying this movie isn't as bad as everyone else seems to think. Sure it wasn't what I hoped for, but it was decent...

Being a big fan of the Rat Pack, the main reason I saw this movie was to see how Frank, Dean, and Sammy were portrayed, and I was sorely disappointed. Sammy only had one line (on stage at the Sands), while Frank had quite a few, but the actor portraying him looked, and sounded nothing like the original... It boggles the mind as to why they even cast the guy for Sinatra. Way too short, and way too emaciated, he looked more like a sleazy, third rate imitator of the voice. As for my favorite member, Dean had zilch to do or say. Sammy and Dean only appeared in two scenes I believe.

Peter Lawford was portrayed by a rather old actor who looked like he was in his late 60s. Though he looked more like the real deal than 'Frank', much was left to be desired.

'Momo' suffered the same fate. They cast a guy that spoke with nary a trace of a hood's accent, and he appeared very much like an accountant than a gangster. Well at least this was better than '98's Rat Pack where he sprouted a black hat and dark glasses in every scene.

What really bothered me though was the cliches, mainly 'Frank' wearing the same black hat in just about every scene he was in, including him with his tux, which looked odd to say the least. And he is a good dresser in real life.

The only one that I felt comfortable with was Natasha Henstridge as Judy, but who ever knew that with dark hair the blonde bombshell would turn out looking like the twin of Courtney Cox...

Now on the story...

Interesting... Don't expect any focus whatsoever on The Rat Pack, but do expect a very cut-rate romance movie, which is very slow on development with very stiff cardboard characters. While this may be a tad better than most average soap operas, what kills it is the fact that it is a biopic.
