81. It's a Gift

It's a Gift

Another 30s, male lead comedy.  More outdated jokes but quality acting.  So instead of repeating myself again, I will spend this post talking about other things.

Today I fell in a huge puddle of mud.  My favorite actors are Jack Nicholson, Kevin Spacey, Joan Blondell, Ewan McGregor, and Nicole Kidman.  I really don't like talking about the illegal immigrant problem, because I really have no idea what to do about it.  I have a historical crush on Alexander Hamilton.  I have a thing for red-headed guys.  I have a huge prejudice against the French and I am head over heels in love with London.

There.  I hope that was more interesting to you than a lecture on how humorous I found that movie.  It probably wasn't and now you feel gypped.  I apologize; we can discuss this movie over comments if you want.

RATING: **---

Interesting Facts:

I guess I should tell you that this film is about a kind of Mr. Bennet character who wants to buy an orange farm.


  1. My one previous encounter with W.C. Fields was a little thing I remember on television from a few years ago which made the brief point that it's curious how some old comedy, whilst undoubtedly talented, has simply dated such that it's no longer at all funny. But that other comedy from the same era remains timeless. Some example I forget was held up to demonstrate the former category and a clip of W.C. Fields was held up to demonstrate the timeless latter. I didn't laugh at the clip and didn't laugh once at this film.

    On the plus side, I've got red hair so should probably be sending a photo to Amanda some time.

  2. Haha wow so you were a ginger British school boy? Just like the Butcher Boy! Or maybe he was Irish...

  3. Not sure who the Butcher Boy was, but yes
