"This is Where it all Began!!!,
This review is from: Good Times (DVD)
My Mom took to the drive-in theater when I was 13 years old to see this movie. I loved it of course, being a fan of Sonny & Cher since the "Caesar & Cleo" year before! This film gives us a glimpse into the beginnings of Sonny & Cher/Cher, who go on to become nearly legendary in the entertainment world. It was the first time anyone who loved S & C's music to "see" them, doing more than singing, where for the most part Cher just stood there, wonderful of course, but certainly not the proven superstar she has become. Who would think 40 years could go by so fast. The film is a delight for me to watch today. It is simply a charming little film, done with all the production their budget would allow! Actually, the film itself, basically ignored when released, is put together quite well. Director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) obviously put his heart and soul in the making of this little movie, starring, of all people, Sonny & Cher. Many many "Good Times" were to follow......
