19 February 2004 | caspian1978
| Sly's Pride
Sly wore too many hats in this movie. It's one thing to write and direct a movie, but when you star in the film, co-produce and then decide to sing the movie's original song, you're biting off more than you can chew. With a re-write of the script, a better mainstream director and having his brother Frank sing the songs, Paradise Alley could have been a contender. Instead, it has been listed as one of Sly's cheesy films that he did in his post-Rocky / pre-Rambo era.
