Ava Gardner is in the movie \"Snows of Kilimanjaro,\" so she is in this DVD, contrary to what the reviewer wrote in previous review. That movie also stars Gregory Peck and is considered a Hollywood classic.
Although overly sappy in places and probably 20 minutes too long, this Robin Williams-in-drag vehicle provides the comic a slick surface for doing his shtick, within a story possessing broad family appeal.
Credit for the success of the film has to start with director Robert Zemeckis, who has taken his Back to the Future and Who Framed Roger Rabbit success and parlayed it into a more mature, yet equally entertaining, film.
This movie spans the times of my life, as I grew up in the same times. How strange is was to watch this movie go through it's storyline. I remember the history in this movie very well. Although some was \"adlibbed\" a little bit, to make it funny, most of it was very serious stuff. Had some very sad moments too. (Mother dying) Getting back with Lt. Dan, fantastic!! A very sad ending, with Jenny and all. A truly great movie, that will be remember forever!!
I had been trying to find this title locally and no one I checked with had it but, WalMart.com sure did. I received it in a very timely manner having it delivered to our local store. It was very easy to find and order at WalMart.com and the price was certainly right.
Absence of Malice does not invalidate All the President's Men. But with entertainment values -- and a moral sense -- every bit as high as that film's, it observes that there is an underside to journalistic gallantry.
