Forget The Critics! This Movie Is Good (Okay..so I'm a critic too then).
13 October 2001 | by Scootman78See all my reviews

First of all, if you read Leonard Maltin's review of this film...forget he wrote it. Leonard Maltin's been wrong about a lot of reviews, and this is one of them. In fact, you shouldn't trust any critic about any movie. Your eyes are the one watching the movie for your brain...not theirs. Ok, to finally get to my review of "One More Saturday Night": it is a good movie. The only thing you need to remember before watching it is that the movie takes place in a town in Minnesota, on one particular Saturday night. There are a few different plots to follow, but it's nothing that will confuse even the slowest viewer. The movie stars (although it doesn't freely admit it) Al Franken, best known for his work on Saturday Night Live and his political commentaries. He does a believable performance as a nerdy-like and very likable star of a band that's doing a stop-over for a gig in the town. Franken's character doesn't try to come off being too suave, nor does he do any over-acting at all in the movie. The rest of the stars also do a good part in making the movie go along. Best of all, the movie's jokes are funny. Sure it's a dumb kind of funny most of the time, but a laugh is a laugh. The bottom line is, as long as you aren't picky about your movies, this is the movie for you. It's re-playable too (you won't get sick of it the first time out...unless you're the picky type that I mentioned).
