Interesting script, despite obvious flaws
Most critics wrote off the film because of the poor script and the lackluster direction. Yes, it is true that an average viewer should be able to spot the villain, well before the ex-cop and ex-private investigator does so in the film by comparing life-styles. But that is what young audiences will look for in the movie. What I liked about the script were the subtle dialogues ranging from Samuel Johnson misquotes to acerbic one-liners that developed each of the characters slowly. Take the misty-eyed Lt. Verna (Stockard Channing) greeting Ross as an old acquaintance and then closing the dialogue with the icy “Cuff him!” to the arresting officers. You have an extra-ordinary script here and everywhere in the film.
This film is not action-packed; it is heavy on dialogue requiring a mature mind to take in the clever character buildup. Sarandon’s character, in particular, was well developed leading to a charming finale.
Benton never appealed to me as a great director; nonetheless this film’s strength lies in his script (co-scripted by Russo), a thoroughly delightful cast ensemble, and a notable camerawork by Sobocinsky.
Finally, I thought the film’s name was a wonderful and appropriate selection.
Waste of great talent
It was both inspiring and painful to see such great lead and supporting talent demonstrating their craft with nothing to work with. It could have just as well have been several one-person demonstrations of how to act. I’m glad I got this video for free from the library.
