But this only the first ten or fifteen minutes of the film: there is much, much more to come, and all of it is over the top hilarious. Jack Weston, Jerry Stiller, and Kaye Ballard are perfectly cast in their roles, but would you believe F. Murray Abraham (Oscar winner for AMADEUS) as the screaming queen to end all screaming queens? How about Rita Moreno as a no-talent lounge singer who is busting a gut to become a bath-house star just like Bette Midler? Or Treat Williams as a P.I. with blonde hair and a squeaky voice? My own favorite of the bunch is Paul B. Price as Claude, a "chubby chaser" who takes one look at Jack Weston and falls in love at first sight--and then proceeds to make his life absolute hell by chasing him all over the bath house. Before it's all over you'll find people hiding under beds, thrown into swimming pools, impersonating the Andrews Sisters, and being pursued by unwanted lovers of the wrong persuasion, all to absolutely hilarious, incredibly giddy effect.
Like most farces, THE RITZ deals in stereotypes--but it is never mean spirited in its portraits, and the cast carries off the eccentric characters (both straight and gay) with considerable aplomb.Read more ›
Look for a few scenes with John Ratzenberger - "Cliff" from the TV show "Cheers".
Vintage Featurette - You're an Actor, Jack Weston
Subtitles: English & Français (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled.)
The list of extras come from a press release from Warner Home Video. I am somewhat disappointed that there is no commentary track for this film, though I am grateful that at last it will be available.

As many others here have said, this is a very funny movie, especially if you "get" all the gay references to vintage films and music popular with gay men. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Stanley C. Sargent

|How do we get this to DVD???||
I loved this movie, the kind of movie you can play over and over and still enjoy it and introduce it to friends who may have been scared off by the gay theme. It is a great farce, silly and just all around funny. I tried to ask for it at the Warner Bros site, but there is no way to post requests.
