|11.14.06||Borrowed|| Another really long movie, also set in 1910 or 1908 or whatever, but this time it's a Blake Edwards comedy starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Peter Falk, and a particularly sexily-dressed Natalie Wood. It's very much got an old vaudevillian tone with Jack Lemmon as a mustache-twisting villian to Curtis' dressed-in-white daredevil hero. The whole first half hour is just stunt after stunt with Curtis coming out on top and Lemmon having various schemes to sabotage Curtis and all of them blowing up in his face. Peter Falk is Lemmon's sidekick... they are the funniest part of this movie.|
There is a long-distance race though, from New York to Paris (no, not Paris, TX) where hijinks happen. I dunno, the movie's ok... it's just so zany and over the top that you really have to buy into it to get any enjoyment out of it whatsoever. I remember trying to watch this about a year ago and falling asleep.
so that was my trip to visit the folks!
