Queen Bee - movie DVD cover picture

As Christina Crawford said in her book, Crawford was not acting in this movie. This is the way she was in real life. I believe it. Crawford was a phony. But I love most of her films. This one is fun to watch simply because you know Crawford is at her evil best. When she tells Lucy Marlowe who plays her cousin Jen "don't oppose me. I don't like people who oppose me"....that was the real Joan Crawford, not EVA, from the film. Crawford had to be in control of everything. If you want to get a glimpse of what the REAL CRAWFORD was like, watch this film. Its campy fun and the production values are great. She is abetted with a fine supporting cast, especially the tragic figure of Betsy Palmer who is driven to suicide by Crawford.

The car accident scene at the end is totally unbelievable. Eva and her lover fighting over the wheel in a rainstorm causing them to crash??? Please!!!!

The Greatest Comedy of All Time

If you haven't seen this movie, you owe it to yourself to do so. If you haven't ever seen the Marx Brothers in action, you're missing out on some side-splitting laughter. The greatest comedy troup of all time; the Marx Brothers offered a trio of unique comedic skills. Start with Groucho and his acerbic wit. Insults fly like machine gun fire when Grouch has the floor. Chico offers the role of the person who finds new ways to mangle the English Language and misinterpret whatever you tell him. Harpo never speaks but his pantomime speaks volumnes. The way they play off each other is fantastic. This is not three clowns bumping into each other like the Three Stooges. This is humor that can be appreciated by all ages. Comedy these days always seems to fall short of the level achieved by the Marx Brothers. Either it is too high-brow, too low-brow, or too obscene. Watch this one because life is too short.

FETCH ME THA PAEPEER IF YOUUUU CANNN....... It seems silly to rate this little movie as one of the greatest of all time...but I must. Mike Myers would do well to lose the Austin Powers movie rut he is in and go back to inventive charming little movies like this one. It has everything, beautiful leading actress, soccer matches, badly sung Rod Stewart songs, animal print bagpipe bags, haggis.....what a great film!

The ultimate anti-bush documentary

Being a non-american, I think this is one of the most powerful & self-critical documentary film ever made in this country or any country. And for once, none of the patriotic crap that seem to attempt to brainwash the general average americans (e.g independence day). I wish we all can"trust the president" as Britney said with such naivety. It shows how blinded we can become. True, Moore may have manipulated and exagerated the facts, and turns it into a very biased anti-Bush movie. And here is where the film technique is so great, with excellent editing technique, justaposing different parts of the film to great persuasiveness, (notably the part where Britney suddenly appears chewing her gum like an idiot). And what humor and sarcasm. The end result is that after watching the movie, you feel like killing the president! (and if this is about a Korean or Taiwanese politician, sure there would be riots on the street by now!)But there are also objective parts too, notably a touching interview with the mother who lost her son, who loaths Bush for sending her son to a useless war, plus quotations of soldiers who realise the meaninglessness of this war. Plus a powerful clip of how none of the politicians involved in the war want to send their children to warApart from the fact of "war on oil" which every knows anyway (or are in denial of this fact), there are a few very disturbing information, namely the Bushes family's personal ties with the Bin Ladins, and their personal oil/energy business. All politicians lie(it's their job) but what appears to be most disturbing is how Bush appears to do one thing, but in fact has an alternative motive, possibly a personal one. If he lies for the good of the nation, it may be forgiven, but to launch a war for personal gain is unacceptable.Few weakness here. More elaborate information regarding Saudis' funding the terrorists and H. Bin Ladin's relation with his family would be more provoking. Bin Ladin may not be as mad or evil as we think. He's sick of the dark oil bussiness ties between the Saudis & America and his terrorist activities may have wanted to stop such ties. It's just his way of doing things are totally wrong.In the end, a powerful quotation from Orwell's "1984" sumarises how a dictator can manipulate war in order to give stability to a society by inflicting constant fear of something: the Vietnam & Korean war, Cold war, and now "war on Terror". In a frightening way, a totalitarian state is not that different from the current situation in America. While, I'm not saying that Bush is like Stalin or Mao, it makes a chilling but apt comparison between a democratic world's leader and that of a dictator.

comedy with heart

My favorite sitcom ever!This first season lays the groundwork for the brilliance that was to come.I was surprised that these early shows still held up for me.The Santa episode reminded me of the coming seasons,very funny but with heart and a whimsical fantasy all thrown together brilliantly.I never get tired of telling people how great this show was,and still is.Get this show and remember,until the last season or two when it had run it's course,there are some of the best sitcom moments ever on future seasons,and this season ain't bad.

Everyone loves the fact that this show is on DVD, but there are some things I recommend. There should be bloopers as extras in future releases and the one season of The Golden Palace should be released after all seasons of The Golden Girls are all released.

Prepare to hurt yourselves laughing

This ageless television show still has me in stitches each and every time I watch each and every episode! This humor is not for everyone, but it is for anyone who enjoys a healthy balance of dry English humor and all-out slapstick.
