(de) wrote: I have no idea why this says that this movie is named after the boy, but I've always known this movie as "Shipwrecked". Came on the Disney channel a long time ago. The Disney Channel CALLED it "Shipwrecked".... Good pirate movie for younger audiences.

(mx) wrote: Biografische film over middengewichtsbokser Rocky Graziano met de jonge Paul Newman in de hoofdrol. Deze rol was eigenlijk oorspronkelijk bedoeld voor James Dean, maar die was net voor het filmen begon tragisch om het leven gekomen in een auto-ongeval. Vandaar dat we Newman te zien krijgen in een voor hem beetje atypische rol, namelijk die van stoere bink met een "attitude". Degelijke film, ook al is ie intussen een beetje gedateerd. Eveneens de debuutfilm van Steve McQueen.

(gb) wrote: This is a sexy, fun, trashy and sweet movie. I've watched it a couple times now because the dancing on the bar scenes are kinda awesome -although as a former bartender seeing the girls work also just makes me feel exhausted. I remember those endless busy nights, pasting a smile on and going home with the sunrise too well. Anyways, I enjoyed Violet (Piper Perabo) here, especially the relationship she has with her dad (John Goodman) The romance angle is kinda meh as is the whole (inherited) struggling to become a songwriter with stage fright in NY. Still one of those guilty pleasure movies people don't admit to watching. 12.30.13 (3)"A songwriter tries to make it in NY. When the industry doors slam in her face, she takes a job in a rowdy bar where female bartenders whip the crowd into a frenzy with sexy shenanigans."

(ca) wrote: Quite a fun and entertaining movie about the struggles of the American dream.A young woman is asked to make life choices about a job industry she is not quite interested in.What is most important in the end?A typical storyline with a typical protagonist.Meryl Streep steals every frame she is in.Actually Meryl is the soul of the movie.Hathaway was fantastic but Meryl was extraordinary!Without her this movie would have flopped.

(ca) wrote: Visually pleasing, but the scriptwork is pure bore-fest. Crisp colors and camerawork extensively gander at 1970ish Alpine slopes and townships, while Redford races down them - and around them in a yellow Porsche Carrera 911. Imagine the perfect 1968 long-legged Euro-blonde dressed in a YSL miniskirt and pearl white lipstick and you've got a fair fix on Redford's love interest, Camilla Sparv. And, of course, this is Redford at his most pretty-boy handsome. Otherwise, there really nothing else on the menu. RECOMMENDATION: Pleasant enough nostalgic TCM viewing while I worked my desk - and that's the best that can be said of it.
(de) wrote: Scott Cooper certainly showed potential in this movie with strong direction and a strong script. It gets very predictable and its message is overused, but with a tour de force performance from Jeff Bridges and some good back-up performances, Crazy Heart is a worthwhile experience.
