REVIEWS

Review by anonymous (posted on 14-May-2006)

I was ten tears old when I first saw this production and have revisited the movie seven times over my seventy nine years.I still crack up at the same places and have to use tissues to blot up the tears from the laughter. First and foremost the story and screen play is brilliant. The execution by the cast is absolutely flawless.The ensemble were all at their very best and delivered their lines with a crispness that is rare in todays films where story and acting is secondary to special effects. Secondly, the movie has legs in not just amusement and heart but a profound message of how humans kindness can illuminate the path to decency and a responsible life. It may have been a story about some very ditsy people but that was more than redeemed by their response to great coaching by the main character. Maybe we should spell that with a capital C.
