Product Description

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

This could have been a nice little movie; it almost is. The plot is blissfully uncomplicated, much like a Marx Brother's film, but even at his oldest, Groucho never seemed as old as Rodney does in this DVD. The idea of going to the ends of the earth to win the love of your lady is timeless. But with a thirty-something leading lady and an eighty-something leading man, searching for your Viagara and your teeth would seem like a more realistic quest. I'm especially disappointed that there were no memorable "Rodney lines" like in Caddy Shack - "Oh that's the worst looking hat I ever saw ... looks good on YOU though." A sweethearted, non-wise cracking Rodney didn't work for me. Honestly, I feel bad not loving this movie. I am a Rodney fan - have all of his records (yup, on vinyl), DVDs and CDs too. I have seen him live and use his lines all day long - "I went to the doctor, I said doc, when I wake up and I look in the mirror, I wanna throw up, what's wrong with me? he said, I don't know, but your eyesight's perfect!" But in this film he was mis-cast. Picture Billy Crystal in the lead and you know what I mean. Anyway, if you love Rodney, maybe you shouldn't see this movie. It's just too painful. I had to go watch Caddy Shack a couple of times to get over it.
I originally wrote this review back in June of 2004 - Rodney was still with us and making those around him laugh. He's gone and there will never be another,

Rodney Dangerfield in a blushing romantic comedy? It worked for me! Rodney is lovable as Lupo and the storyline is sweet and clever. I was charmed and so was my boyfriend who is a die-hard fan of Robert Davi who's also in the movie. Don't see it unless you have a jug of wine on hand. You'll see why as the story unfolds. The wedding scene is the best but I don't want to give it all away.

Once again, I read the reviews on-line before purchasing a movie and end up enjoying the movie much more than I expected to. "The 4th Tenor" is not like one of Rodney Dangerfield's older movies, all which I have seen by the way, and shouldn't be compared to any of them. But this happens to be a nice change up for him.

It was a very cute and well made movie and there's hardly any sign of the 'brawdy' Rodney for previous movies, although many of the jokes are pretty hilarious! It made me appreciate and respect the late great Rodney even more than I already do!

Also, the supporting cast was very funny also! When was the last time you've seen Charlie Fletcher ('Who Framed Roger Rabbit', and tv show 'Freddie') take on a more supporting role? Or seen 'all around' tough ass Robert Davi ('Profiler' and 'License To Kill') dive for cover in a tub full of water and rose petals?

If you have a quite Saturday with nothing to do, rent or purchase "The 4th Tenor". You won't be disappointed.

Great vehicle for Dangerfield to showcase his unique comedic character. Falling hopelessly in love. Going to extremes to pursue the object of his affection. Being hoodwinked by unscrupulous villains. Barely escaping complete disaster at the hands of an outraged mob of opera fans to meet his true love. (He doesn't know it yet!) It all ends hilariously well as as the Romans say - "Omnia vincit amore." - Love conquers all, and good triumphs after many twists and turns and set-backs over evil. Great stuff ... and it's all good!

Being a longtime Rodney Dangerfield fan, I looked forward to "The 4th Tenor" with both curiosity & caution. It's a cute little movie that could've been better. Rodney tries hard, but at such an advanced age, he just doesn't have much left to give. The film lacks the classic zingers Rodney delivered in such earlier films as "Caddyshack" & "Easy Money".
On the other hand, "The 4th Tenor" doesn't try to be those films. It's not a raucous, sophomoric comedy, but a more subtle one that aims for smiles & chuckles instead of belly laughs. It works as a sort of Italian fairy tale, or one man's quest for love. It also operates on the romantic notion that the way to a woman's heart is through song.
But Rodney's character of a sincere but lovestruck restaurant owner is so endearing that you're with him all the way...even through a rather lukewarm vehicle. He does get able support from a fine cast: Robert Davi, Charles Fleischer (yes, the voice of Roger Rabbit), and Hamilton Camp, to name a few.
So long, Rodney. Whether your films were terrific or mediocre, you still made me laugh. Thanks for so much! : )

A very odd film, and the other reviewers are right that Rodney was too old for the part. However, lovers of opera may actually enjoy this flick for the singing (other than Rodney when he's not using the magic wine) and the respectful treatment of the world's greatest art form.

I looks like Rodney or his producers actually knew something about the art of singing and liked it. Rosa, her mother and father and the other 'real singers' all are portrayed to sing beautifully, naturally, and sincerely. There's not a hint of the sarcasm and caricature that the typical Hollywood cultural ignorance could have applied. The movie accepts the thesis that bel canto singing is worthwhile on its own terms, and not just as a celebrity vehicle for the Three Tenors, or an art form to be marginalized by the mainstream of pop culture.

Although I'm sure he didn't set out to make a music education film, Bravo Rodney!
