(ag) wrote: Me he topado con esta pelicua mas de una vez. Es una comedia facilista en su humor. Extranamente da un giro en el ultimo tercio y empieza a tomar tintes de drama. No queda bien claro que queria el director.Algunas partes tienen cierto humor. Pero esta pelicula es definitivamente mala.
(ru) wrote: This doesn't have all that much going for it besides some eye candy and superb acting.
(jp) wrote: Everything about this movie was terrible--especially the continuity. I also had no idea what was happening the entire time. This didn't seem to connect to the Exorcist story at all, except for maybe the last 20 minutes. Sitting through the last hour of this movie was incredibly painful, and I had to stop numerous times because I just got too bored.

(us) wrote: While it breaks no new dramatic ground, "Staying Together" takes a look at the coming of age of late teen brothers in an average American semi-rural setting.
(us) wrote: NOT my favorite Gene Kelly movie. At ALL. To quote Jeremiah Kipp of Slant Magazine, "Indulges in drawn-out hokum."<--THAT is it in a nutshell. The saving grace? The amazing and beautiful dance numbers. So well done and fantastic to watch, The rest...meh.
(ru) wrote: While not on the level of "similar" classics, this is still a great film worth watching and an ever important history! The only reel downside is the incredible annoying soundtrack that overemphasize in every single scene exactly how you are supposed to feel at that moment.
(jp) wrote: it's a very cute story and be ready to have tissues! it is a must see!
(br) wrote: In "Baby Face," Professor Cragg(Alphonse Ethier) lectures Lily(Barbara Stanwyck), a barmaid, on not living up to her true potential. That might have something to do with the dive bar where she works or her father(Robert Barrat) unsuccessfully trying to pimp her out to Ed Sipple(Arthur Hohl), a local mob boss, who suffers the painful response of Lily's rejection. So, it might not come as a surprise that Lily is ambivalent at her father's death in a sill explosion. With nothing left to tie her to Erie and almost no money, Lily decides to take up the professor's advice by traveling to New York City with her friend Chico(Theresa Harris) to get a job in a bank, using her charms of seduction. While so employed, she rises quickly and is recommended by McCoy(John Wayne) to his boss Brody(Douglas Dumbrille) for a promotion who in return takes a liking to her. In olden times, women were not allowed to advance very far in business. So what was a poor woman like Lily supposed to do? The answer lies in the darkly entertaining and bracingly honest "Baby Face" wherein Barbara Stanwyck pulls out all the stops and then some as a character whose actions while not recommended, are certainly understandable by the social tenets of the day. At the same time, the movie takes shots at then current hypocrisies. For example, Stevens(Donald Cook) is engaged to Ann(Margaret Lindsay), the daughter of his boss(Henry Kolker). And how is that any different? On another note, I approve of any movie that references philosophy like this one but maybe psychology would have been the way to go instead for Lily, especially with the way she was raised. Note: This is the original unedited version.
(jp) wrote: For a "in the woods" horror, I think Lemon Tree Passage is definitely a "try it once" movie, because it is a nice add-on to such productions and it would be a shame to let it pass unnoticed--It has a lot of the old, in a new mix, that manages to offer 84 minutes of good time... Little surprise horror!!
