Robin and the 7 Hoods
Like we've taken the Robin Hood legend and changed the bows and arrows to machine guns!... Like with songs yet!... Like WILD!
In prohibition-era Chicago, the corrupt sheriff and Guy Gisborne, a south-side racketeer, knock off the boss Big Jim. Everyone falls in line behind Guy except Robbo, who controls the north side. Although he's out-gunned, Robbo wants to keep his own territory. A pool-playing dude from Indiana and the director of a boys' orphanage join forces with Robbo; and, when he gives some money to the orphanage, he becomes the toast of the town as a hood like Robin Hood. Meanwhile, Guy schemes to get rid of Robbo, and Big Jim's heretofore unknown daughter Marian appears and goes from man to man trying to find an ally in her quest to run the whole show. Can Robbo hold things together?
"So Sick I Can't Change the Channel" Movie Marathon Movie #5
Forced to watch "Mrs. Doubtfire" a second time, I crawled over to the remote and finally changed the channel. This is probably the weakest of the Rat Pack movies, but it's fun to see the boys hanging out with Bing Crosby. The musical numbers are split down the middle, only half are entertaining. Set design and costumes are bright and are a perfect reflection of the 60's. Overall, a good time and a nice way to wrap up the day.
