NOTHING like original, childish, but its worth a watch
if your expecting anything like the TV series, forget it.
heck, marshal will and holly aren't even related in this movie.
no kids under 13 should watch.
if your looking for anything serious, forget it.
if you don't like stupid, silly and childish humor forget it.
so much was fake and unrealistic, and dangerous situations were just left as unexplained, like how'd they get away from sleestacks in pylan, and how'd will get away unseen from 2 tyrannasouraus when in limo?
the bad language wasn't funny, and totally not needed.
i was very disappointed in the movie, but it was worth $1 from redbox.
but...... the graphics were good. it had some funny scenes.
it's worth a buck or 2 but only if you like 16 year old humor with not 1 ounce of reality
Stink-A-Roo = Harrisons worst - Harnett awful = TERRIBLE MOVIE
Stnk - A - Roooooo Hollywood Homicide is pure garbage. The only reason i watched the whole thing is because im paralyzed, and i couldn't switch the channel myself in bed, lol.
This movie shows you that you can create a junky movie with a bunch of big name stars and it will still make money.
I paid $1 at a flea market for it, and i want my money back! ha ha ha Everything about this movie was pure trash. It was too long, filled with boring stuff i didn't even care about.
The acting is awful... everyone was bad except the black cop, i liked his tiny roll.
Every situation was so fake, it was like the writer was in 12th grade.
Harrison Ford reminded me of a old guy trying to act cool. His part was supposed to have comedy, but it was so fake that it just made him look dumb.
Josh Harnette was absolutely awful. He should never trust the guy who wrote his part again. His character was not even likable. I personally would have seen his character killed off in first 5 minutes.
This movie was a waste of time. skip it, watch anything else that looks exciting to you on TV.
I'd give it a 3, just because they spent millions to make it.
i think kelly, the guy who played duane is a underrated actor. i liked him on one on one, in fact kelly was my favorite actor on the show.
i really think he needs another TV show. i know he had under one roof, but the premise storyline wasn't a keeper. But kelly did good job acting.
When he and spirit were let go on one on one, the show went downhill fast. spirit kept interest between the boring briana and arnez saga.
one on ones last season, which excluded flex, duane and spirit, was focused strictly on the teen audience and tried to pump itself as hip, when in fact it was giving itself a bullet to the head. it failed! Duane and flex kept the show neutral in the age brackets, a little for everyone.
Briana alone with arnaz in California was just boring. i knew the writers were gonna break them up 1st episode. Friends ripoff? thanks kelly for the laughs, you got more laughs from me than anyone on show.
A Great Movie! Yes i'm writing this 10 years after it was released, but i was compelled to give my opinion.
This movie centers around 1940's death row, and has many interesting characters that center around a head officer and a huge black prisoner. The meek giant has the power to see into people lives and heal the sick.
Now throw in a slew of top notch actors and you have yourself a great cast, well written story, and will keep your interest throughout.
I liked that this movie didn't really show the racism side of life.
It's a long movie, 3 hours with commercials, but it's worth watching.
This is a perfect example of how a family holiday movie should be made. It had every angle covered to keep your interested with a ending that makes you happy and tear.
This movie is about 2 families who each lost a mom/dad who come together in marriage and each side "kids" wanting their own tradition Christmas. Not giving in and sticking by their own "selfish" desires causes tension within the family.
I really liked John Ratzenberger in this movie as the logical calm grandpa. His chemistry between the kids and parents was only over shadowed by his sincerity to Dixie Carter, the mother in law. Ratzenberger is a very good drama actor, a far cry from Cliff on cheers. John, can I have your autograph? hehe
The storyline between the mom and dad's tension was well written, and even better was how everyone intermingled with their own sub-plots. In the end, the entire story was wrapped up perfectly.
SPOILER -- *** When Dixie carter goes home and Ratzenberger goes to get her, WOW, that was so well written i would give a award to John for that alone. The tears rolled from my eyes from there, and my heart made me think of my family until the final climactic ending with grandma walking in living room.
The only thing I would have changed a bit was the ending and families reaction when Dixie walked in. Don't get me wrong, it was good, but they could have did something a little better, maybe a bow around Dixie, lol.... They should have put a dramatic momentary pause in the kids faces when they saw grandma, maybe tears in their eyes before they ran to her.
To me, this movie was Christmas perfection.
It's a MUST SEE for anyone who loves family movies. A+++
When a Asian guy with a bit part playing a retired cop and has only about 10 minutes of air time is the most interesting character, run for the remote and switch channels.
Its the story of a woman hired to bring a girl from Asia back to Hawaii as her parents battle over custody. The fathers a bigwig in business with guys after him to get his money. The mother is a woman who was screwed over by her husbands power. Sounds interesting right? well, everything i just said takes up only about 10 minutes when pieced together.
The plot would have been good if they picked better actors and defined the storyline better. Both main characters, to me, seemed annoying.
The woman carrier wasn't feminine at all most of the film, and even after the makeup attempt by the young girl, her boyish mannuerisms outweight her beauty. Why her ex-husband still loved her i have no idea. I saw no chemistry between any of the characters.
The Asian girl, from TV show zack & cody i think, was just a brat. This girl is the reason people don't have kids, lol. She wasn't funny nor remotely interesting to me.
The story of bad guys after them could have made for fun adventures to make this movie more interesting, but that was left alone after 2 meek attempts at kidnapping.
The bad guys were explained in the end, but it left the viewers hanging with no finale to that plot.
This is a total chick flick.
I give it a 5, and would recommend it only if nothing else was on TV. If you see something else on that peeks your interest in any way, choose that over this made for TV movie.
Story about santa losing his memory and he meets a few people as his wife tries to get him to remember. Would be a good plot if the story was written better.
The acting was terrible, and Thomas Cavanagh was literally annoying acting like a hyped up nutjob as santa claus.
There was no chemistry between him and wife Ashly Williams, and the only thing going for her in this film is shes HOT!, lol... Hi ashley, i liked you in good morning Miami, can i have a autograph? The little boy in the movie, Alexander conti was nothing more that a annoying kid through the film. Patrick Fabian, the bad guy, was just a blah boring character.
Hal Williams, by far the best actor in the movie did a good job as the old man who believes. I like this guy, he's a good actor.
Sure the movies supposed to be fantasy, but it was just way too much dumb scenario's and poor writing and cavanagh as santa was just to nutty.
My advice, if you have a choice of holiday movies, pick something else.
2 THUMBS UP for a TV movie !! I just watched will you merry me last night on Lifetime, or was it Hallmark? lol.. its one of those chick channels.
I found it amusing, humorous, and well written. It's a must see for anyone who likes holiday movies.
I liked it because it wasn't real sappy like many chick flicks. This film moved at a good pace, kept your interest and was funny.
Wendy Malik did a good job as a uppity mom blending into a family she really didn't want any part of. Her transition from tolerance to heartwarming acceptance as a family with a climatic gift she receives is truly well written and acted. Watch wendy's hubby's reaction when this happens.
Sure it went overboard a little with the Christmas mom, but was still fun to watch christians meet the jews, haha.
Can anyone say fiddler on the roof? PRICELESS! Well written to accommodate ever situation, even a death! I won't spill the beans but this death tied into the buildup was funny.
Bravo to Patrick McKenna who did a excellent job at mr Christmas dad. He did a great job at acting neutral in any given situation. I wish i had half his patience and go with the flow attitude.
I would recommend will you merry me to any woman who enjoys Christmas movies, and for the guys, same thing.
p.s. i loved the gnome, shame on her, lol MERRY Christmas EVERYONE 2008, HO HO HO !!
im a big fan of cagney and i enjoy o'briens work also.
that being said, and it seems i will be the first reviewer to think this film was nothing special. i say this for future people who come to IMDb for a quick overview to see if i want to watch over something else like i do.
granted its a very early film, with good actors and a a few good supporting actors, but that being said, my opinions are based on the acting and script writing parts.
yes cagneys known for the little tough guy, but his character went far beyond tough guy to obnoxious and kinda mean.
cagney in this early movie is not the 'loveable' tough guy he's known for. he is quite annoying and deserves every punch and punishment he gets.
o'brien on the other hand did a great job acting as the fair and respected character.
cagney in blackface is kind of funny posing as a black man, funnier yet is his buddy yelling = way to go chesty = as he is escaping on a turned down leave.
until i read the others reviews, i didn't know the 2 ships used were destroyed in pearl harbor. that i agree is a very historical memory the film offers.
it's worth a watch, but is no highlight of anyones career.
i have to admit i was kinda disappointed in this movie because i am a fan of old cinema, but sadly i just think cagney character wasn't likable, and the movie tried to portray him as such.
It has a Great cast for a comedy, but everything about this movie was just plain dumb.
Watching this movie reminded me of the goofy movies they made in the 70's.
Rob schneider did a OK job, only because his character was normal.
David Spade's worst roll ever.
The 3rd retarded kids roll isn't even worthy of me remembering his name, truly awful.
Jon Lovitz did a good job, i thought he was funny in his part, but again, he was a normal guy The story lines just dumb, 3 middle aged guys who play baseball against 10-13 year olds who people look at as hero's? The kids in this movie, well, they were kids, lol.
I found stupid humor that wasn't even funny. oh well.
Absolute WORST movie in their career in my book.
I would only recommend this movie if there was no other movie on and they were running my mother the car on very other station.
I like the cast, well written story lines, definitely good for a laugh.
Brad and Joely have a unique chemistry, bordering on love and hate, so maybe safe to say tolerable? i see no sexual chemistry at all since this show began, so the characters are just set in stone, but it works for this comedy.
The Woodcock's are funny as neighbors, but the straightlace hubby and hot exciting wife is looking like a divorce waiting to happen My advice for the show, keep and focus a lot of time on character J.B. Smoove as Kenny. This guy is awesome. He could have his own show. Every scene he's in is a guaranteed laugh because of his way of speaking and 'harshness'. I'd love to meet J.B. Smoove, seems like a good guy.
I'd also recommend the show to focus on the funny teachers at the school, especially the fat red-haired guy, he's funny KEEP MAKING EPISODES - TAKE THEM ON VACATIONS AND OFF HOUSE SET, put the cast in situations where w don't see the same house sets, because that gets boring. take them camping, vegas, Florida etc.
This was a fairly long movie, with a great cast, and worth a watch if you enjoy westerns.
It's your typical revenge movie, bad guys kill a mom and dad, son seeks revenge by hunting down and killing.
McQueen is supposed to be a halfbreed white/Indian, and many in the film call him a young kid. McQueen was 33 when he filmed this, hardly a kid, hehe. He looked older than 33 to me.
The storyline was OK, and there were a few memorable scenes, 1 being McQueen using a fake name as Karl Malden tries to trick him into falling for his real name, especially by throwing his murdered fathers tobacco bag to McQueen SPOILER -- I disagree with many here on the ending. McQueen kills the first few guys who killed his folks basically by confronting and attacking.
When he chases and shoots karl malden, 1st in hand, then in knee cap, then in other leg, he stops from killing him in cold blood. Others here think Mcqueen learned his lesson about revenge, but to me, i looked at it as more of a sadistic shooting, leaving a guy to die on his own alone slowly is pretty cruel. Sure it was written differently, but thats my thoughts I think they could have cut a good 30 minutes off this film to keep my interest, because they dragged out situations and that bored me good cast, typical plot, worth a watch
