Mr. Mean (1977)
James Bond meets ghetto - very funny
I rented this movie many years ago and since then I have told many people about this movie because it is SOOOO funny. I try to take into consideration that this movie was made in the 1970's and probably had a budget of $1000.00 but still. There are so many mistakes, tacky scenes, and just plain bad scenes that you should rent it just for a laugh. It's kind of like James Bond meets ghetto. Rent this movie at least once for a good laugh.
A delightful movie
Antonio Banderas was truly in his form and height of career when he was cast in Almovodar's Spanish movies. Banderas portrayed innocence and simplicity of character in these early movies that Hollywood always seems to make large and gloss over any sort of character development. There is something that Hollywood seems to drain away and leave behind in the character of people, yet Banderas/Almovodar capture so perfectly the average man/woman and portray them in interesting ways. Atame (Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down) is a delicious little movie about a crook who falls in love with an actress. To get her attention, he kidnaps her and the fun begins. Almovodar's movies are always filled with quirky characters, funny dialogue and plot twists. To see Antonio Banderas at his finest playing a simple man who falls in love but has some issues..Atame is a cute, touching movie to rent.
