PJ P (it) wrote: A sweet tale of small town infatuation demonstrating yet again that , God, the French know how to make movies - this is an absolute joy, even if it has you spitting with envy at French education. Take consolation though in a demonstration that not even the French appear to be very good at getting off with each other when sober.

Joe L (us) wrote: of the great french heist films, this is my favorite because it completely subverted my expectation of the finale. it has an easygoing style that reminded me of lighter episodes of 'the sopranos.' after seeing noir after noir end the exact same way (thanks to the cinema codes of the period), and after seeing two other french heist films with the same premise, it was a shot of adrenaline to see something that not only found a new tone, but also an immensely clever way around the moral restrictions of the time. this is hailed as a precursor to the new wave, and i'm very much looking forward to diving in.

James N (br) wrote: Effective drama about a journalist who refuses to name her source for a damaging story about the US government, enduring harassment, arrest and jail to protect her source. Taut, well- acted and gripping.

Kevin R (br) wrote: Now I've seen everything.Longfellow Deeds is a simple Vermont small time card writer and local good guy. He inherits $20 million dollars from a family member and is quickly swarmed by those who hope to ruin his name and extort his money. A journalist assigned to report on him initially hopes to post slander on Deeds and then falls in love."Oh, you're drunk.""Oh, you're right."Frank Capra, director of It's a Wonderful Life, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, It Happened One Night, Arsenic and Old Lace, and Lost Horizon, delivers Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. The storyline for this picture is interesting and contains a wonderfully written and executed main character. The acting is awesome and the cast includes Gary Cooper, Jean Arthur, George Bancroft, and Lionel Stander."Never get your hopes up again."I came across this Gary Cooper classic on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and had to DVR it. This was very well done; and while at times Cooper could be annoying, the overall script, character, and plot came together well. I recommend giving this a viewing if you enjoy classic tales."You'll find the smelling salts in the medicine chest."Grade: B

Alden W (es) wrote: Retrato de poca y social de Ford que... es medio aburrido de ver. Capaz porque es muy disperso (muchos personajes para tan poca duracin), o porque no tiene ningn conflicto atrapante. Es una peli relajada, sobre la vida cotidiana de un juez y otros aledaos. Salvo que es un poco aburrida, y que nadie te muestra el sur histrico como Ford, no tengo grandes quejas ni elogios. (pero quin la haba recomendado tanto y por qu??)

JamesMasaki R (ag) wrote: The highlight mirror gag with Groucho and Harpo is here, as well as the insane football game at the end. The story is the usual Marx Brothers, insanity all the way, about a college in a little crisis, with Zeppo playing Groucho's son this time. And the music? Chico has a great piano scene in this one as well. Although the print I watched was pretty terrible in some scenes, and there were some censor snips here and there in the apartment scene. I don't know if those will ever be recovered.

Coy K (br) wrote: Can I give this 0 stars? I'm going to try. I've tried for years to sit through this disaster, and I can't do it. I'm a fan of B movies, I love Bruce Lee (whose vision this evolved from), but I simply can't fathom a world in which this film has any merit. It's pacing is awful, the acting is almost all terrible, and the story makes 0 sense. I am willing to give it half a star for the man trying to melt of his penis, simply because the scene broke up the monotony of the rest of the film. I would say I wouldn't see it again, but I have yet to be able to sit through an entire viewing without a headache. This movie tops my worst movies list because it acts like so much more than it is. Are there worse movies? I assume so. But they don't pretend to be genre defining titles.
