Oliver Pease gets a dose of courage from his wife Martha and tricks the editor of the paper (where he writes lost pet notices) into assigning him the day's roving question. Martha suggests, "Has a little child ever changed your life?" Oliver gets answers from two slow-talking musicians, an actress whose roles usually feature a sarong, and an itinerant cardsharp. In each case the "little child" is hardly innocent: in the first, a local auto mechanic's "baby" turns out to be fully developed as a woman and a musician; in the second, a spoiled child star learns kindness; in the third, the family of a lost brat doesn't want him returned. And Oliver, what becomes of him?

Palookaville is an entertaining and quirky romp with European flavours, and while the unexpected feelgood ending is somewhat disappointing and the plot and character developments do not always gel in the best of way, it's still fun.

Kenneth C (it) wrote: For one who teaches a course on Asians in Hollywood, I must now resist the anti-Orientalist schtick--it's too easy a critique. Having gotten that out of the way, I must admit that the film is remarkable for two reasons: it is a Hollywood musical with an (almost) all-Asian cast, and it does address the rather fraught question of cultural assimilation in the United States. An added plus is the campy dance-and-song routines that are so bad that they are now deliriously good.
Paul D (ru) wrote: This is not one of Werner Herzog's better documentaries for the fact that the subject matter is too thin on the ground to be feature length, this kind of thing is better done by television. That said it's fascinating for a while to see such pre-historic age from a past too far back to comprehend.

The only annoying thing is the main girls hair... I just wish someone gave her a comb and some hairspray instead of letting her look like she had caveman hair. Besides that, it's good *thumbs up emoji*
