Storyline

Done in a similar style to the musical duo's TV show "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour", this film is more a series of unconnected skits and parodies than a single running plot. When Sonny gets offered a role in a movie, he talks Cher into giving it a try. The proposed script, however, turns out to be awful, but in order to get out of doing this stinker of a project, Sonny has just ten days to come with his own better script. The rest of the film follows his daydreams as he plots out possible storylines starring him as a Wild West sheriff, a jungle king, and as a private eye. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

GOOD TIMES, okay movie
28 July 1999 | by DenBoy-3See all my reviews

This is the starring debut for Sonny and Cher (their screen debut being WILD ON THE BEACH). It is a hodge-podge of Sonny's fantasies of a movie-star career and Cher's not wanting to have any part of it (a carry-over from real life... ironic, huh?) It has one of their best songs DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS, and Sonny's comedy timing is surprisingly good. They could have done a lot better with a real script, I feel, but it WAS 1967...
