Kiss Me Kate
Fred and Lilly are a divorced pair of actors who are brought together by Cole Porter who has written a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew. Of course, the couple seem to act a great deal like the characters they play. A fight on the opening night threatens the production, as well as two thugs who have the mistaken idea that Fred owes their boss money and insist on staying next to him all night.
Inspired by The Taming of the Shrew, it tells the tale of musical theater actors, Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, who were once married and are now performing opposite each other in the roles of Petruchio and Katherine in a Broadway-bound musical version of William Shakespeare's play. .

(es) wrote: A truck driver, unable to support his extended family properly, gets some outside help to stage an accident for insurance claims; a couple, on their journey through rural Gujarat, finds their son missing due to their carelessness; a small girl, who on her way to her grandmother's house, accidentally and unwittingly halts at a place which is darker than it appears to be. Three interesting stories, beautifully entwined with each other, keeps you hooked till the very end. Though the screenplay is thought-provoking, the movie ultimately fails to have any sort of impact on you. The overall acting is just okay; the performance by the two small kids and the truck people really stand out, and is quite commendable. The cinematography is spectacular, and elegantly captures the rural Gujarat; it adds to the beauty of the stories. The music also helps create a good feel to the film.With a better screenplay, a superior direction, and more skillful acting, the movie could have had better impact on the viewers. Though the movie doesn't bore you in its 90 minute long well-paced screenplay, ultimately it becomes one of those movies which can be seen and forgotten.

The story wasn't a typical Christmas story, though it does take place at Christmas and I would hesitate to call this a family movie. The story of two priests and various conflicts in their lives as one has arrived to close down a small parish and another struggles to keep it open - toss in into the story one troubled young woman, that is truly a fairly good story, but most of the acting in this little film was mediocre at best.

(fr) wrote: I really miss seeing Gene Wilder in the movies. When I was a kid, I would watch 'Silver Streak', 'Stir Crazy' and 'Hanky Panky' all the time. 'Hanky Panky' hasn't aged particularly well, in fact some of the 'gags' seem prehistoric, and it also pales in comparison to 'Silver Streak' and 'Stir Crazy'. Apart from that, there's still much to enjoy in this comedy-thriller. I'm surprised it's a PG too! There are at least two uses of the 'F' word in it, but one must remember that a PG in the 80's is very different to a PG in the year 2007. I read that this was originally supposed to be another collaboration between Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, but Pryor pulled out for unknown reasons. Not knocking Gilda Radner at all, but I wonder what it would have been like with my man Rich in it? Anyway, 'Hanky Panky' remains very watchable, and to me it'll always remind me of saturday nights at 9:30pm on BBC1. Cuz that's when they used to show it.

(ag) wrote: Directed by Mike Figgis (Stormy Monday (1988), Internal Affairs (1990) and Leaving Las Vegas (1995)), this is a touching but mawkish romantic drama, written by Eric Roth (Forrest Gump (1994) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)). This came about after it's star and director looked to work together again after Internal Affairs, and they really did their homework for this film, but meticulous research doesn't always a good movie make. Mr. Jones (Richard Gere) is a mysterious man, who turns up to do construction work for a house, and then ends up on the roof of the house, standing on the edge, wanting to fly, he's talked down by co-worker Howard (Delroy Lindo), he's assigned to psychiatrist Dr. Elizabeth Bowen (Lena Olin), who investigates his case further. After another outburst, where he interrupts a classical concert, Bowen puts him into care, and Mr. Jones is diagnosed as a manic depressive with moments of suicidal tendencies. But, the more Bowen tries to help Mr. Jones overcome his condition, the more she finds herself falling in love with him, which is a big no-no in her line of work. Despite a charismatic lead role from Gere, this is quite dull and jittery, it doesn't help that Figgis had trouble in the editing room with this, but he was able to get a much shorter Directors Cut done in 2006, but it does go on forever, which is a shame, as it could have made a good film.
