This is certainly my favorite show for both George Segal and Jane Fonda.
They are marvelous as folks trying to make ends meet (by hook OR crook) in
the face of unemployment. Their hijinks are marvelous, as they exhaust ALL
the possibilities for humor in the search for employment.
Especially memorable are the fashion show, the celebratory dinner, and the performance of Carmen. But good spots in this film are too frequent to even cite!
This is a super film, with laughs galore. Visit kink in a fab fifties
and enter SM the "Bland" way. The film is beautifully cast, especially
Mary Woronov, Paul Bartel, Robert Bethan, and Susan Saiger.
And you'll learn something, too. Whether it's about bland Buritos, or doggies, or what NOT to take into a hot tub with you!
Here is a perfect movie. The actors (Kathy Bates, Mary Stuart Masterson,
Mary-Louise Parker, and Jessica Tandy in particular) are credible, rounded,
warm, funny, absolutely perfect. The plot is (in its way) epic, involving a
long time span, with significant developments in both past and present. It
is a total must-see!
This film too offers tons of memorable moments. It will also supply those quotes to use when one tires of the usual Gone With the Wind or Wizzard of Oz items. You will NOT forget "Towanda," or "The Secret's in the Sauce" in any near future.
This movie is a masterpiece, and a masterful presentation of some most significant lives, and of a way of life which should have survived.
This film is a delight. It basks in the warm glow of Savannah, presenting
truly delightful range of characters in an endearing manner. The plot is
engaging, and it unrolls beautifully.
Casting is masterful. I could especially point out Kevin Spacey's gracious southern gentleman Jim Williams, John Cusack's fresh New Yorker new to southern ways, and Lady Chablis' most stupendous portrayal of her/him self!
The movie basks in the glow of Johnny Mercer ballads. Quite frankly, there is nothing to pan and everything to praise with this film!
This movie is one of those rare perfect films. Casting is brilliant
(especially Stockard Channing, who only gets better and better as the years
go by--and she was always totally incapable of less than a fantastic
performance). The general plotline of the movie is congenial, and the themes
In essence, the movie deals with the healing of "broken people." (For other such films, see such gems as "Batteries Not Included".) The unlikely angels? Three drag queens from New York City. The vehicle? Their car breaks down in a red-neck hamlet. Unlikely hijinks and dangerous confrontations lead to a satisfying finale.
And Julie Newmar was never better!
This is certainly the best of the 4 modern Batman epics. A major cause is
Tim Burton's wonderfully twisted imagination which was used to create
City. The setting is, in fact, a star of this show! Michael Keaton is no
slouch as Batman (he's my favorite of the Batmen) and Kim Basinger is a
appealing romantic interest. This is also just about Jack Nicholson's best
In short, all the elements combine in this film to make it memorable, appealing, exciting, and enduring.
A most unusual film, this. And it is a personal favorite. True to the
flavour and colour of the Nathaniel West novel. It is well cast, well
conceived, and beautifully presented. It is the cynic's view of Hollywood,
but with a goodly quantity of truth to it. It ranges from the banal everyday
life of a court apartment house, thru some rather high-flown action at the
cock fights and the sound stage, to a raging fantasy in its surrealistic
I find it gripping, exciting, funny, suspenseful, and a heck of a great entertainment.
The film is brilliant, and brilliantly cast. This is your ultimate backstage
film. It is wildly funny, almost painfully so! The timing is remarkable, the
casting incredible, the script flawless!
The film recounts trials and tribulations encountered by the cast and crew preparing and touring the British sex comedy "Nothing On" on its way to a Broadway opening.
Buy it! Rent it! Watch it!
This is a stunning film. The score is dynamic--beautifully written and
magnificently performed, with a shockingly wonderful presence in its new DVD
incarnation. The color is gorgeous, bright, subdued, subtle, stunning--broad
of range and magnificent. The dancing is incredible!
Add to this the magnificent variety of tango, and you have an undeniable winner!
And this in spite of the fact that the plot is rather slight, relieved finally and solely because of a rather Pirandelloesque twist at the end.
Roger Moore is a surprisingly stiff James Bond, and lacks the humor most of
the other Bonds have brought to the role. The movie is clumsy, and (from the
perspective of 1999) terribly dated--rooted as it is in its own times
"swinging" pop culture. The movie is slight--with such events as the power
boat race occupying a disproportionate amount of screen time, and the cute
but clumsy use of the southern "cracker" sherriff.
In short? Give the film a miss if you possibly can.
