(au) wrote: Rather bad film for such a good rating. I was intrigued at first but when the guy declares having lived longer than anyone without being a vampire, it lost me. The discussions were not smart and I lost interest to the point of skimming through. It sounded like a cheap bible-oriented story and the spoilers revealed it was. If Jesus was alive, he surely would find ways to communicate to the world and not act like a bum.
(mx) wrote: It starts with unorganized flashbacks that are put together in the 45 mins which makes it a little confusing and slow. Otherwise it was a good movie but entirley too depressing. I cried 4 times in a 2 hour period.
(ca) wrote: Alright, I see a lot of hate going around for this film. I have to disagree with a lot of it. Pauly Shore was nearing his peak of greatness when this film came out. He was an icon for being crazy and fun. That is exactly what this movie is, a crazy fun time. This was my favorite comedy growing up. This film also sparked Fraser's career and Astin's comeback. Astin went on to make Rudy, which is one of the greatest films ever made. Pauly Shore owned the 90s, you have to understand that first. It has some amazing surfer dialogue, and it is still being used today. If you want to have some fun, watch this film. It's free everywhere on the net. Two Thumbs up for three great actors.

(fr) wrote: Cool classic gangster film starring Edward G. Robinson as Rico, a gangster rising up through the ranks of the mob, and taking down whoever gets in his way. I love pre-code crime films, they had such grit and are so much fun. The Hays Code sanitized Hollywood movies from the mid 30s until pretty much the late 60s, I love seeing examples of how bad-ass cinema was before the code set everything back and made the art-form so bland for a while. Of the early gangster films, "Little Caesar" holds up well, I think "Scarface" and "Public Enemy" might be better, but this one rocks, and Robinson is the epitome of classic gangster.

(it) wrote: Woody Allen has become extremely good at producing these Annie Hall-lite efforts which naturally pale in comparison to his best films yet there is nearly always something worthwhile within the package. In this case Allen himself makes the most of his limited screen time, doing what he does best in one of his best comedic parts in recent times while Jason Biggs takes the lead role nicely. Notably he doesn't feel compelled to mimick Allen, perhaps Allen's presence negated the need for imitation, something that Will Ferrell and Kenneth Branagh have both been guilty of in Allen's absence from the screen. Instead Biggs get to do his down to earth, bumblingly likeable sort who is clearly punching above his weight, in this case with Christina Ricci, who by the way is also on endearing form.
