The Wrong Box (1966)
Not funny. I didn't even smile. Have tastes changed so much since 1966 or am I so out of touch that I hated every moment of this broad unfunny farce? On the plus side, As my husband said, "Well, it gave some people work." I don't think I can think of 10 lines to say any more succinctly than my headline that this movie has nothing to recommend it, except, perhaps, the amusement of looking for the appearance of each well-known actor as they appear on screen. Frankly having to write ten lines to say what could as easily be said in two is a waste of my time and the time of the potential reader. Some of the more helpful reviews on Amazon are short and sweet: Failed after one use, not as described or poorly made. I will repeat my initial review of this failed comedy: Not funny. I didn't even smile.
Double Identity (2009)
Too tired to change the channel
Probably one of the lamest movies I have sat through in recent memory and only exhaustion kept me from finding something else. Val Kilmer has gotten so heavy I worried about him stroking out while trying to run through the woods in an early scene. Then when I realized the movie made no effort at real athletic stunts, I quit worrying. The so-called passion between the 2 stars was the most imaginary part of the whole movie. It was so imaginary, in fact, it was nonexistent. The plot was so convoluted that for awhile I was tricked into believing it was complex. By the end I realized it was just confused. The only reason I am wasting my time writing this review, is to keep you from wasting your time watching this movie. You have been warned.
My House in Umbria (2003)
Better than the promo
Based on the trailer, I expected this to be saccharin fluff and tuned in just to see the Italian countryside. I should have given Maggie Smith and Chris Cooper more credit. Not only was the scenery beautiful, but Dame Smith created a complex individual with a definite edge and Chris Cooper stayed in character throughout. Not a great movie but a pleasant diversion.
Me & Mrs Jones (2002)
Fairytale Romance at 10 Downing
If you have a chance to catch this on Masterpiece Theatre, I strongly recommend it. The leads are attractive and many of the supporting cast are entertainingly quirky. As in an earlier Masterpiece Theatre, "Reckless", Robsen Green is attracted to a married woman. This time the stakes are higher because the woman is the Prime Minister and Green is a reporter trying to get a scoop. Even though Harry Fletcher is such a rogue, you can't help hoping true love will win.
