4.0 out of 5 stars This film is very funny and a lot like Mrs. Doubtfire! September 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was clever, witty, and totally enjoyable. If you liked films with people impersonating others (examples: Two Much, The Associate, Mrs. Doubtfire etc.), this is a film for you. If you can't find it to rent, just buy it. You'll be glad you did.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT BAD...BUT TOO BAD FOR LENNY HENRY June 29, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I actually bought this copy for a film festival I held for a special anniversary last year. It is actually not a bad film, but because Disney invested heavily on Lenny Henry to strike it big here in the U.S.A. as he is big in his native England, only to fail to do so as a result of this film's box office shortcomings,he was unable to get the toehold here in the States to make it last. This film, which shows off the acting--and comedic--talents of Henry, gives a taste of what might have been if the film had been more accepted in 1991. A good chance for director Charles Lane, who plays his make-up designer bud as well. Frank Langella does right in his role as a gangster in hiding--a mature albeit still-beautiful Peggy Lipton is phine as his wife. Anne-Marie Johnson makes a fine love interest for Lenny. The late J.T. Walsh, in a good-guy turn, delivers as an F.B.I. agent looking to bring in Langella's mobster character. And James Earl Jones has a poignant cameo as well. Not such a bad way to go for a Blockbuster kind of retro-night. Check it out. (This turned out to be a PAL copy, but with a code-free DVD player, you can make it happen!!!!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Jewel.......Needs To Be Uncovered August 16, 2014
I found this movie by chance going through discounted VHS tapes and thought I'd give it a watch. I was very pleasantly surprised, tt was a very good movie considering the budget and handling it received. I like comedys but don't really find too many movies that give me a real hard laugh, but this movie had many really funny scenes. I'd never heard of Lenny Henry before and it's too bad he was so mis-managed, he could have had a very successful carreer, he is very talented. The story line was okay (there aren't many new or original story lines under the sun these days) and the acting was more than adequate. The makeup job on Henry is pretty good and his imitation of a mobster type is good too. Frank Langella does a great job as usual along with most of the remaining cast. This movie is definitely worthy of a re-release on DVD.
