Rodney Dangerfield has successfully skewered song stylists on numerous occasions. His "Rappin' Rodney" was one of the biggest novelty songs of the 1980s and his version of "Twist & Shout" in the film BACK TO SCHOOL is remembered by legions of fans. Dangerfield is out to get respect for his vocal cords once again in this slapstick romp. The comedian plays a nightclub owner who is smitten with a singer who entertains the patrons. Unable to reach her heart, he tries the international language of song. After infuriating an entire neighborhood with his horrible singing, the restaurateur drinks a magical wine that gives him a tenor that would make Mario Lanza bow down in awe. Blessed with this magical throat, the hero just may be able to win over this elusive beauty.
Long-suffering comic Rodney Dangerfield (Caddyshack, Back to School) stars in this cinematic fairy tale about a New York restaurant owner named Lupo, a cynic who suddenly falls madly in love with a tempestuous singer (Annabelle Gurwitch). She spurns him, saying she can only love a man who can sing great opera--so Lupo sets out to learn and falls under the sway of a couple of Italian con men who promise to teach him how to sing. But when he is given a role in an opera, his voice turns the audience into an angry mob. He flees and ends up meeting a buxom young widow (Anita De Simone) with a family secret that can give Lupo the voice he desires--but will it give him Gina? The 4th Tenor strives for a gentle, magical tone. Fans of Dangerfield may enjoy the movie as the comic's last hurrah; others will find him far too old for the part. His spirit yearns, but his flesh is weak. --Bret Fetzer
Rodney must learn to sing and takes his "water sign" in the form of wine and his "earth sign" lust for a singer and turns it into funny mud and love!Published 4 months ago by Larry W. Mayes
Delightful rom-com which also has the distinction of being Rodney Dangerfield's last film. It's 1/3 fairy tale, 1/3 comedy, and 1/3 musical. Read morePublished 15 months ago by G. Moy
