(kr) wrote: Rarely do you come across such a modest production so balanced in heart, soul and mind, not to mention a sizable amount of style not only for noir fans or sci-fi fans, but just plain film fans.
(fr) wrote: James Woods rocks an insane ponytail as 80s engulfed 60s legal hero Eddie Dodd. And as usual, Woods is the reason to watch. The story is kinda typical courtroom fodder, but Woods' rekindled passion and Robert Downey Jr's bespectacled idealism keep the so-so plot watchable. If you enjoyed Jagged Edge, The Verdict, or Presumed Innocent than you'll probably dig this as well. VF.

(kr) wrote: This movie was just ok in my eyes. But it had some funny moments that made it just a little better than most comedies from the 80s. Chevy Chase was basically himself with his quirky little lines. Goldie Hawn was decent. I really wanted to see more out of Charles Grodin. The story was in pieces and really was not that interesting at all. But it was the comedy of the film that keeps you interested. Chevy Chase basically was the reason the movie was funny for most of the other characters were not as humorous. There is a dog in the film that is a Saint Bernard. I swear it was the same dog from the movie Beethoven; which Charles Grodin was also in. So overall, it was a humorous movie, but not one of the best.

(nl) wrote: An overall good experience for comic-book-literate and general audiences, but a few minor plot holes that leave audiences questioning the motives of several characters prevent the film from being an overall INCREDIBLE experience.
(jp) wrote: not Disney's best effort, and definitely not Pixar quality.
(ca) wrote: A house-hunting family and a couple of photographers get stranded in a derelict hotel on a small island with a history of witchcraft. Mostly bad but it has its points of interest including: Linda Blair getting possessed again, an appearance by David Hassellhoff and some bloody occurences with the highlight being a woman who gets her lips sewn shut and then gets slowly roasted to death. If you enjoy cheesy Italian productions then you may find this of interest.
