As the film begins we see a character named Deke (Roarke) arriving at a roadside motel, picking up another character named Larry (Fonda), who is indeed the `Crazy Larry' portion of the title. As Larry leaves his motel room we see yet another character, named Mary (George), sprawled out on the bed...and, if you guessed her character was the `Dirty Mary' portion of the title, you'd be right...we'll learn later how they were blessed with these particular modifiers attached to their names...Read more ›
This film has genuinely exciting action sequences that rival many modern action flicks with their less than involving computer generated images.If one can get over the cringeworthy nature of some of the groovy dialogue and fashions, one finds a window into another era. Exciting, tough, fast paced entertainment...... and what about those fabulous old American Muscle Cars. In the words of Peter Fonda's character.."It's a rollercoaster baby! Whooo!...."
This movie is not about synthetic Hollywood dialog or about slick special effect. Its not about a bunch of punk kids racing around in souped up Hondas, or Mitsubishi Eclipses doing their front-wheel drive burnouts and trying to outrun some Crown Vic cop car. NO. This movie has real cars, real people and real chases. Behind the somewhat bad scripting, you get to see the best of what was America. A 1968 Chevy Caprice, a 1969 Dodge Charger, and a cop car whose top end is "unlimited".
Peter Fonda and Susan George make a good couple He's callous, uncaring, and the type who would tear the arms off a baby to get the "cubic money" that he needs to complete his racing career. Susan George is a prevaricating, bibbling ditz who is out for some adventure. Fondas cohort Deke, is an honest guy who finally "gets the girl" although not literally, because of the rather negative ending.
Most people will hate this movie. Some, apparently enough of us love it enough to buy it. I give it 5 stars because of the dry humor and some of the best car chase scenes ever on TV. I look forward to purchasing mine, as fast cars and fast women are my thing. Its also fun to watch while you're drunk.
While "Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry" isn't a great drama, it's a fun free wheeling chase movie that helped redefine the genre with its hair raising stunts. John Hough's sharp direction keeps the film from becoming just another low budget exploitation flick. 30 years on it's astonishing that many of these dangerous stunts were accomplished. While many of the newer films (the remake of "Gone in 60 Seconds") that mine the same genre cave may have more flash, they can't compare to this film for sheer inventiveness when it comes to the outrageous stunts performed for this film. As a low budget "Bonnie & Clyde" crossed with "Bullitt" "Crazy Mary & Dirty Larry" can't be beat.
A spectacularly transfer from Anchor Bay makes this one of the best releases I've seen of a mid-70's film on DVD. The print appears flawless and there's little to no digital artifacts. Yes, there's grain but that's due to the film stock used and that's to be expected. The grain isn't any more noticeable because of the transfer and that's a tribute to the care that's gone into this transfer. The mono sound doesn't offer much for Anchor Bay to work with but the mono sound has nice presence with no problems with compression or other issues.
Once again Perry Martin does an outstanding job with the extras included here.Read more ›
