Perfect Couples (2010)
BEST Comedy on TV!
NO NO NO...I can't believe NBC has canceled this gem of a show. It was completely different from any other show on TV! It was fast moving, had great cuts and editing, but best of all were the actors and writing. Each one brought a wonderfully wacky character to life. The lines were so witty and snappy. And each couple was so unique. From Rex and Leigh - the perfect couple, to Amy & Vance - the wacky couple and then Dave & Julie - the normal couple.
Vance was my favorite character - he was a riot. I'll miss him!
I had gotten a bunch of my friends to watch this and now everyone is a great fan. BOOOOOOO to NBC!!!
Why Do "Artists" Feel the Need to Reinvent Christie
I totally agree with the few other voices of reason about this being just an awful reworking of a Christie Masterpiece.
Up until now, I wasn't that big of a fan of some of the characterizations from the 1974 Albert Finney version - namely Lauren Bacall as Mrs. Hubbard (not ridiculous enough) and Tony Perkins as McQueen (very uneven - Perkins played him both weird and fey, but the McQueen in the book was both strong and confident). Now I feel they were all brilliantly portrayed compared to the dark and repelling characterizations found in this piece of crap.
All the recent Poirot movies are so stark and bleak as to be unrecognizable when compared to the humor and warmth of earlier David Suchet portrayals. Here we have him playing a Poirot who seems to hold everyone he meets in utter contempt! And what happened to one of the best lines in the whole book - "they couldn't have ALL done it!" That's how Hercule solves the mystery!!! I could have screamed in utter frustration last night when all that moralistic claptrap they added took up almost the whole last third! What a waste of celluloid! And what a waste of David Suchet. ARRRGH!!!
As far as the Catholicism goes, I don't mind that being added since Agatha Christie had already mentioned that in other books. What I DO mind is making Poirot into some "holier than thou" character who probably would have cast that first stone in the story from the Bible! What did the writer do with Poirot's famous compassion??? Its gone, along with his kindness and forebearance.
Earlier in the week, I watched a special about the Orient Express staring David Suchet. Now THAT was entertaining. If this had been even one fourth as warm, witty, and wonderful, I probably would have enjoyed it.
For those of us who don't want to see Madam Christie's works "improved upon" by so-called "artists" skip this dreck!
