A Real Sleeper........pun intended., 15 November 2005
7/10

This movie was made a year before Mel Gibson's "Forever Young". The story here is quite similar, but with the lower budget and it's own pace, "Late For Dinner" works better for me. I love Mel Gibson, but here the absence of a big box office name here puts the focus where it ought to be, on the story itself.

The first time I saw it, it struck me as a largely a no-name cast, but looking at it today I see it a bit differently......Marcia Gay Harden, Peter Gallagher, Kyle Secor and Janeane Garofalo are all there.

Like most films of this sort, it requires 'suspension of disbelief', but once you let go, it is a charming and very enjoyable film. Watch it with someone you love.

The Big Gun, 2 September 2005

I will always have a warm spot for Robert Stack because he took so many roles that essentially satirized himself and because of his work with "Unsolved Mysteries".

I wish I could see an episode of this series again. What I remember, which may or may not be an accurate recollection, is that whenever gunfire would break out, you'd hear the "pop pop pop" of handguns and at some point Robert Stack would take out what APPEARED to be a normal handgun and "KABOOM"! Wow baby!! THAT is a handgun! It seemed that someone deliberately used a MUCH much louder......uh........hand CANNON noise for Robert Stack's firearm than they used for any other. Well, as has been noted, it WAS the era of he A- Team, and Bob WAS the man!!
