(br) wrote: Most underrated film I've seen in years. The film is not science fiction, but a tale of exploring the human heart.
(ca) wrote: Shattered Lives was cool to watch for one reason-- those creepy clown dolls! In the beginning I almost turned it off because it starts in a motel where a bunch of drunk teenagers are being murdered by a masked slasher... I can't bare watching one more slasher flick it's like they're all the same anymore but with different masks. The opening scene was fun to watch just no where near original but after the opening scene you're suddenly taken to another story where a little girl lives with her parents and mom is seemingly unhappy with daddy. The little girl realizes her mother doesn't love her or her father anymore when the mother kisses another man and invites the man over to the house while the father is at work and the little girl is home. The way this little girl deals with her mother's infidelty is by taking advice from her creepy clown dolls and believe me... they are CREEPY. The clowns finally convince the girl to kill her own mother leaving the girl and her father to live happily ever after until he dies in a car accident and the little girl (now a teenager) wants revenge to which we go back to the opening scene of the film. Though they tried to make it one big story it felt like two stories widely spread apart. I'm nuetral on this film. I don't hate but I don't love it either.

(ca) wrote: Vince's laugh in this alone is worth a watch. Barney was the best. He should've been utilized more. Could've made the ending better...But Good Casting. i wish i cared a little more about this story or the characters. credibility was lacking. Even just a little bit of work on the script. I'm no FBI agent but I HAVE watched The Wire twice and there were too many "I can't believe this..." moments for me. i do like a clean noir comedy though. And having lived in Montana it was nice to see the backdrop. That was legit.
(br) wrote: gets that rating cause some of it is just really stupid-funny, plus it has a frog-crab puppet that is quite amazing. But it also doesn't do any favors to Peter David's script, which is only halfway decent anyway. Thankfully George Takei is there to partly save the day, if only for his scenes.

(ca) wrote: I really like this series of movies.I think I saw all of them, but not totally sure, as I saw the old ones only when I was a child.I just saw this 1 again on TV.I don't think it's the best, but it's a good family's comedy anyways.A big part of the movie's in Paris, before they start the race to Monte Carlo.So, I saw (and didn't remember he was in, as I didn't know him when I saw it so many years ago) a french actor I like a looot. It's the excellent Grard Jugnot. Sad that he doesn't have a biggest role in the movie.Herbie is moving, funny, amazing! It's a good idea of movie they had in 1966.

Most of the story involves a variety of characters trying to chase down a coded message and threatening to kill Gregory Peck, except that they all need him alive to decode the message. Sophia Loren is brilliant as she plays the good guys and bad guys against each other all the way through.
