I didn't love the film, but I was certainly impressed in the way it uses two very unlikable characters for its principles - and still works. Perhaps because the film allows you to flip back and forth between the two, disliking one character while relating/sympathizing with the other, or maybe because it is a drug-fueled flick and we give the characters a pass for being under influences. Either way, the film is original and consistently funny.
Weirdly engrossing film about a whiz kid law student and his relationship with a hard-nosed professor.
This film builds a very unique tone and atmosphere through the various locations (from classroom to beach house to Kingsfield's home), the great music by Williams, and the array of characters with which Hart establishes relationships.
This one was always on the list but always put off in favor of something else. I guess I assumed due to the subject matter, or perhaps the old VHS cover with a stuffy looking Houseman, it would be a bore. I was wrong.
Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
