Curtain Call (1998)
A Cheerful Romantic Comedy
Romantic comedy's are hard to do well;"Curtain Call" succeeds better than most. It has a sweet taste to it, corny and a bit slow paced but its good for that day when you just want a fun film to entertain you. Good actors charm,with Michael Caine and Maggie Smith in fine form this movie is fun to watch. The supporting cast is strong but not given enough to do and includes Sam Shepard, Marcia Gay Hardin and Buck Henry in a comedic turn. The core of the film is Caine and Smith as two wisecracking ghosts, who even after death, cannot seem make peace with each other. You want blood, guts, horror, cursing and swearing find another movie. Your family can watch and enjoy this movie with few regrets and have a good time. There is no nudity and my only caution with be some cursing in one scene. James Spader, a truly good actor play a befuddled bachelor who eventually finds out whats important in life,with the help of two bickering ghosts ,from a time long past, but still warm in memory. Try it you should like it.
4 star- A Classic American Story
They don't make em like this anymore, that fits this movie. It's the story of a small town man who settles and marries, his joys and his sorrows in his journey through life set in his hometown.I loved this movie when I saw it, and after all these years it still smolders in my mind. David Wayne gives the performance of his career in the title role. What stuck me was the feeling of intimacy as I identified with his character of the town barber in a small town. When tragedy strikes,it strikes us all,and few more words can be said. There is no place like home, say that again as you watch; Wait Till The Sun Shines Nellis. A great film the has all the elements of a great film and examines the dramas of life in small town America.
