Ole and Chick are making a movie, but the director is not satisfied. So he brings them to a young writer, who outlines them an absurd story. They have to support Jeff and Kitty in setting up a musical revue in their garden and want to bring it up on Broadway. If Jeff is successful he can marry Kitty. But there is his rich friend Woody, who also loves Kitty, Chick's sister Betty, who's in love with a false Russian count, and detective Quimby. They all make the thing very complicated for Ole and Chick. After some mistakes they think that Kitty isn't the right girl for Jeff and they start sabotaging the show, but the Broadway producer is impressed and signs the contract. That's the story the writer tells them. For this he's sued by the director.

Christopher Plummer is at his finest playing a John Barrymore trying to revive his career. Plummer is able to keep one entertained through out this whole masterpiece of a film! If you're a theatre major this movie is a must see. However its a performance I hope everyone can get a chance to enjoy!

Contains every clich from the summer camp movies of the 1970's and 80's (on purpose I'm sure). Loaded cast. Decent film that has its moments but won't make me forget Meatballs II anytime soon.

Andrew I (gb) wrote: Better than I expected it to be, especially the effects which are at times almost scary by 1950s standards. There isn't much plot other than the standard "aliens arrive, they shoot us, we shoot back, they lose" but it's quite short and never boring. Good fun.

Edith N (de) wrote: It Turns Out Prison Is Unpleasant; Who Knew? One of the professional reviews Rotten Tomatoes has, the only negative review, is in what appears to be fairly irate Spanish. It has been many years since I spoke Spanish well enough to get more than a vague generality of what the person was saying, but "[i]misgino[/i]" translates pretty easily. The thing is, though, we're talking about a prison movie from 1947. It's not exactly going to be a paragon of enlightenment thought, here. As near as I can work out, all the women in the whole thing are shown in flashback, so we're only seeing the moments the various cons thought of as worthwhile enough to flash back on during the story at hand. Not, you understand, that I was paying a heck of a lot of attention to the thing. I mean, I like Burt Lancaster well enough, I guess, but the movie as a whole didn't really do anything for me. Joe Collins (Lancaster) is in prison for something, I guess. I mean, he must be, right? Anyway, the prison is under the control of the sadistic Captain Munsey (Hume Cronyn). Oh, sure there's a warden (Roman Behnon), but he seems pretty ineffectual. At bare minimum, his control doesn't seem to extend as far as actually doing anything within the prison. He's just the bureaucrat. Anyway, Joe and several others whose names I missed are planning a breakout. Munsey knows that they are, and he tortures some guy I didn't really hear the name of, at least psychologically, into giving away details. He tortures some other guy psychologically by telling him the guy's wife is going to ask him for a divorce, which he claims to know through letters he's intercepted. And stuff. Part of my problem here was that I had a hard time taking Hume Cronyn seriously as a villain. He's just so nice! In many ways, he seems to have been the Tom Hanks of his day. Or maybe that's my perspective from mostly seeing him as a harmless, good-natured type, usually slightly eccentric in some way. Then again, Tom Hanks likes playing against type now and again as, for example, a hitman. Jimmy Stewart played a few singularly unpleasant people in his day, even sometimes when he was the ostensible hero. I guess the issue here is that Tom Hanks and Jimmy Stewart very seldom seemed . . . I guess the word I want is "dotty." Not stupid, never stupid. But out-of-touch. Even when Jimmy Stewart was informing us that the world was kinder on the crazy, you knew he wasn't stupid, just uninterested in his own intelligence. He could take up a regular life whenever he wanted to; Hume Cronyn's characters could not. Prison is, of course, its own world. The way the snitch dies is pretty gruesome, of course, but the way he got into that position in the first place wouldn't happen on the Outside. The man who is told that his wife is going to divorce him wouldn't have any reason to trust someone else about it so completely. What's more, he wouldn't feel the same level of despair, because Outside, he'd be able to do something about it. He could go talk to his wife. He could find out for himself if it was true or not; there is no one with as much certainty and determination as Munsey Outside. No one who could tell the guy without fear of being contradicted what was in a communication between him and his wife. In a way, what's Outside, even what brought people to that place, doesn't matter. Very, very seldom is the point of any movie set in a prison something other than "wow, prison sucks." It a way, it's an even narrower genre than dance movies. To be fair, there are three theoretical endings, but even they're predictable from the moment you start the movie. You can have escape, release, or continued incarceration--and not just "my time isn't up yet" but "my time is even longer because of the events in this story." Come to that, the release is almost certainly sweet, sweet death if there is a release. You almost never see someone just walking out the gate. In fact, that seems to be the theme of this movie. No one ever escapes. The tunnel is at one point said to essentially be to nowhere. No one knows where it's going. I don't think, somehow, that it's an accidental metaphor.

Mike B (mx) wrote: DUD: One point five stars. The film had a reasonably interesting premise upon which it utterly fails to deliver. The acting is terrible, and the characters are impossible to care about, except the one you're obviously supposed to care about. The script is poor. The film had a number of glaring plot holes, not the least of which is streaming cell signal in the middle of the AMAZON. They must have Verizon. The gross-out gore did nothing to help the film. Roth needs to learn that what can be imagined is far scarier than what can be seen. Seriously, avoid this dud. The only thing that was done right is that they seem to have used genuine indigenous people to play genuine indigenous people. Rather than a Chinese Matt Damon. So, there's that.
