An ultraconservative police officer (DeNiro) suffers a debilitating stroke and is assigned to a rehabilitative program that includes singing lessons - with the drag queen next door.
Labi aktierdarbi, kas pazūd ļoti viduvējā scenārijā. Režisors visu laiku cenšas noturēt uplifting toni, bet otra - traģiskā sižeta puse to velk uz leju. Filmas labākā aina ir titru aina - raksturi un gaisotne akurāt vispiemērotākā visam uzstādijumam.
Spectacular. What to speak of Hoffman and De Niro? Absolutely nothing. Two performances to fill your eyes and learn a lot with the message that the film would pass. I'm not a big fan of Schumacher, but that he overcame. More than recommended.
Robert DeNerio is a cop who hates gays
has a stroke
becomes BFF's with a drag queen ...
I like drag queens
Easily one of Joel Schumacher's worst films. He cannot seem to grasp what tone he wants from the film. Is the film a serious drama? An odd couple comedy? A crime film? A commentary on bigotry? The answer is "yes." Frankly it all depends on which point of the film you are watching. In short, the film is a mess.
There is good acting in the film, but the movie itself is terribly written and really it could have been a better film than what it turned out to be. It is a shame.
Far from flawless. Good performances from Robert De Niro and Philip Seymour Hoffman make this somewhat watchable but as a whole it's just an uneven, poorly directed, contrived and just plain terrible. I expected more from the two, though this kind of terrible is right up Joel Schumacher's alley.
