(de) wrote: Necessary Evil is an unnecessary movie unless you feel it has been much too long since someone has insulted your intelligence. I don't mean insulted it in the sense of making an unbelievably bad movie, which Necessary Evil certainly is. I mean insulted in the sense that the people who made it actually felt it necessary to tell the viewer that he is an idiot *literally.* Let me put it briefly; the film centers around an evil pharmaceutical firm that's making a drug called Reficul. As soon as you see that word, you're smart enough to spell it backwards and get Lucifer, right? Well, the director and/or writers don't think so. They not only feel the need to have the narrator/main villain tell us so at the end of this crapfest (The narrator actually says, "I am Reciful spelled backward." That's in the script!), but quickly follows it up by LITERALLY saying, "Get it? No, of course you don't. Go back to sleep."See, you're so stupid that even AFTER someone tells your that Reficul spelled backwards is Lucifer, you're too stupid to figure out what Lucifer means. See how stupid you are? Stupid you. Here, let me give you the finger and then explain to you what it means.Sitting through 87 minutes of this garbage is like walking through a museum of cliches. There's not an original scene or line of dialogue in the whole film. At one point, the heroine sits in a jail cell and rattles off cliches to a cop. Actual line of dialogue: "So much for 'to serve and protect.' I'm too much woman for you anyhow. Have a nice day, officer." Ugh. Every cliche and stereotype you have ever seen has been collected in one terrible place, like a bag of unwanted kittens ready to be tossed into a river. In this case, I suggest letting it be tossed. There is no need whatsoever for Necessary Evil.

Brother Boy (Leslie Jordan) is a transvestite who believes himself to be a country/western singer and has been locked up for many years. G. W. Nethercott (Beau Bridges) drinks too much and cheats on his wife, Noleta Nethercott (Delta Burke). He was also indirectly responsible for the woman?s death, as she had been his mistress. The dead woman?s daughters, Lavonda (Ann Walker) and Latrelle (Bonnie Bedelia) fight over the funeral plans. Latrelle has a son, Ty Williamson (Kirk Geiger), who wanted to become an actor but has had to come home for the funeral.

Hey, great chace scene but no air and I would have used a GTO instead of a Ventura. I give this film 4 stars for doing it right and one star because I liked it. What did not make sense to me is why the cop who got iced, did not run for cover when he was summoned inside! Oh yea, and another, if I were dose guys, I would have put the gagged cop in the coffin.

(gb) wrote: A masterpiece of the musical comedy genre, Gold Diggers of 1933 holds up surprisingly well in spite of a bit of sit-com-style writing in the second act. The writing is razor sharp, the cast is just about perfect, and the musical numbers are absolutley stunning. It was made just before The Code was heavily enforced on Hollywood films, and thank God it was. The film is like a time capsule of life during the depression, but never becomes depressing thanks to the wit in the dialogue and fantastic direction from Mervyn LeRoy and especially Busby Berkely. Gold Diggers of 1933 is a must-see for fans of musicals, and even if you're not, you might be surprised if you give it a try.
