National Lampoon's Gold Diggers is a black comedy about two losers in their twenties, Calvin Menhoffer (Will Friedle) and Leonard Smallwood (Chris Owen), who are out to get the good life without working for it. The two young men try to rob two 70-year-old sisters, Betty Mundt (Renee Taylor) and Doris Mundt (Louise Lasser). The two sisters beat the two young men up, and send them to jail. The ladies drop the charges, and invite the jailbirds to their Beverly Hills mansion. Cal gets an idea that they could marry the women for their money and live the good life. Hopefully, they will only live 6-months and at most one-year. It turns out that Betty and Doris are broke, and they have come up with a plan to marry the boys, kill them, and collect the life insurance money. After several unsuccessful murder attempts on each other, they join forces to rob Betty and Doris's rich uncle

It's somewhat hard to follow, and David Morrissey is a weak, insipid actor, but otherwise Sharon Stone is fantastic, and the film as a whole keeps me interested. I really think that if they replaced David with a solid A-lister, the film would have done much better.

Instead we have a fairly typical crime thriller with one gang pitched against another, all masterminded by a third gang who aim to take control. It's not Miike's best film by any stretch of the imagination - you feel he could knock something like this off in an afternoon - but it holds the attention and there's plenty of familiar faces in the cast from previous Miike outings.

While there are some genuinely sweet moments interspersed with the funny ones, some of the crass humor tends to weigh too heavily.

Everyone involved is clearly enjoying themselves and not taking it too seriously, watch it in the same mindset and the lack of cynicism is refreshing, and the fun contagious.

Lane Z (gb) wrote: A pretty entertaining, yet informative look into the world of the 1980's communist crisis through the eyes of Charlie Wilson, a Texas congressman played by the always enjoyable Tom Hanks. The director Mike Nichols does a good job balancing witty dialogue with heartfelt situations, but clearly you feel Aaron Sorkin pulling the strings from on high behind the scenes.Philip Seymour Hoffman is excellent as the CIA contact for Hanks' character. When the two of them are on screen together, it's pure entertainment. Two very fine actors. Julia Roberts seems more of a caricature of who she is supposed to be playing. Also never a bad thing to see the stunning Emily Blunt make her start and Amy Adams begin her rise upward.The only thing which may keep this movie from leaps and bounds is a handful of scenes set in Pakistan with the CGI and not enough fratenizing of Tom Hanks' character. We only get a piece of Charlie Wilson's 'other side' in the very beginning of the film. I feel when the film needs some gravity to really put the situation on the front steps of what was really going on, there's still too much of a tone of comedy. The balance is a little off.Overall, you can't go wrong with an enjoyable film with this type of cast. Everyone looks to be enjoying their roles.

Steve S (es) wrote: I really enjoy this movie. It is fun to be introduced to the wizarding world. The tone is pretty light and upbeat. The story is interesting to follow but more importantly makes a good introduction for the rest of the series. Hermione is more annoying in this movie than I remembered. The special effects are still pretty good and fun to watch.
