    Adorable exercise in setting expectations for the importance of hard work.

    I watched the dubbed version with Phil Hartmann as the cat, which I think changed the tone of those scenes quite a bit from the original. His voice performance, though, made the cat's silent moments late in the film even more devastating.

    Beautifully shot neo-noir, but with one-note character motivations, and surprise, gross treatment of every woman in the movie.

    The Witches of Eastwick


    Seeing this movie after the cavalcade of abusers outed in the last couple of years is an experience; the checklist of PUA and abuser tactics thrown out by Nicholson's character are so recognizable now as what they are, even down to the faux-feminism and empowerment messages he uses throughout.
