Gary G (ca) wrote: This is sort of the low-rent version of Better Off Dead minus the suicide attempts. The story follows a guy who's trying to get into the same college as the girl he'd had a crush on all through High School. It's got a few of the same supporting players making cameos and producer Savage Steve Holland is also behind this attempt to recreate history. The movie has the same blend of absurd heightened reality and those little skits he's imfamous for mostly involving A & B trying get out of their latest drama relying on the male lead to choose the correct answer ie. If A is in a boat rowing, and B leaves after A by five minutes...blah blah blah. It usually involves A & B getting killed or mamed as a result of the incorrect answer being chosen. The male lead was appealing enough but he didn't have that same sparkle John Cusack had--and he didn't have all that much chemistry with Lara Flynn Boyle who also wasn't quite as likeable. It was cute 80's fare though with more than a few laugh-out-loud moments.

Byron B (ru) wrote: I recently worked on a professional stage production of this work. It is nice to see the story loosened from its one room confines on stage. Some of the dialog has been shifted also to give star Jimmy Stewart, as Shep, top billing even above Kim Novak, as Gil, who should be the center of attention. Novak's acting style works, I suppose, as the "inhuman" modern day witch. I've often found her to have odd mannerisms anyways. Stewart and Novak had just starred in Vertigo together. It was released the same year. With Stewart definitely going grey, the 25 year age difference was hard to get past in this picture. Elsa Lanchester, as Aunt Queenie, is another actress who I haven't seen often, but who's acting style strikes me as too over the top. Shep's co-publisher and his secretary are characters that you never actually meet in the stage play and still they don't leave much of an impression here. Hermione Gingold lavishes the part of Mrs. de Passe, another character who we only hear about in the play, with all sorts of eccentricities. Janice Rule, as Gil's rival Merle, also does a great job bringing to life a character who is only talked about in the pages of the play. I really liked Jack Lemmon, as Gil's impish brother Nicky, even though his role is scaled back in this production. And Ernie Kovacs, as the always drunk author and researcher of witchcraft Sidney Redlitch, surprised me with his keen and often non-verbal sense of humor. The many cats who play Pyewacket were well trained. The magic in this pre-Bewitched story is not really all that magical, however. And it seems that this is not some of James Wong Howe's best work. He shoots some real locations around New York and too often scans the knickknacks in Gil's shop, since the romance and comedy are a little poor.
