Only the third movie of Tom Hanks' illustrious career, The Man With One Red Shoe is a hilarious comedy about a case of mistaken identity. With a star studded cast that includes not only Hanks, but also Dabney Coleman, James Belushi, and Carrie Fisher, The Man With One Red Shoe is a decent slapstick comedy that appears on cable television from time to time. Not exactly the greatest film in history, it is a fun and entertaining movie well worth the time involved...

When top level CIA operatives Cooper (Dabney Coleman) and Ross (Charles Durning) fight out a personal turf battle, Ross sends Cooper on a wild goose chase to find a fictional witness who can clear his name of some impending charges. Using planted information from a wire tap, Cooper stakes out the local airport in an effort to find the mysterious man...

Meanwhile, Richard (Tom Hanks) is wearing mismatched shoes (one of them red, thus The Man With One Red Shoe) because his friend Morris (James Belushi) played a practical joke on him. But the joke takes an odd twist when a CIA agent spies Richard's odd shoe pairing and fingers him as the target of their stakeout. In an effort to find out what the man with one red shoe knows, Cooper puts a tail on Richard, sparking a strange sequence of events which leaves the bike-riding violin player questioning his sanity.

But the snafu really turns serious when Cooper assigns top agent Maddy (Lori Singer) to the case. Maddy gets close to Richard (who easily falls in love with her). Cooper thinks he's getting closer to the information he needs when the unthinkable occurs - his top agent falls for Richard...

Tom Hanks plays the lead role to the best of his ability, playing the part of a character type he has totally mastered - the clueless, out-of-the-loop guy.

I love this little movie. Carrie Fisher looks even hotter than she did in that bikini thing in Jabba's lair. Very funny writing and directing. The photography is excellent and the broadcast print has aged very well. It looks more like an early 90's movie, with only the blonde seeming a bit 80's. Surprisingly, this is an ensemble cast. Hanks, though at the center of all the action, is sharing time with a lot of other talent. From beginning to end I think this film works.

If you are interested in films of the cold war, this comedy is a must see. It deals with the infighting among spy agencies. My favorite line: "What's the likelihood of the Russians attacking on a Tuesday?!"

This is a delightful, funny mystery movie starring the talented Tom Hanks. What a pleasure to watch something so entertaining and amusing without graphic violence. They should make more movies like this one!

I have fond memories of this movie from my late adolescence. True, it is hard to keep track of which thugs work for which side, but in the end, who cares? The trouble Tom Hanks gets them into by innocently going about his own business is great! Jim Belushi has some great moments too, later on in the film. I laughed out loud for several gags, and can watch the movie more than once.

Always a fun movie to watch. Tom Hanks in his comic element back in the 1980's (think tv show Bosom Buddies and the movie 'Big'). Fun story with great cast of Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Carrie Fisher, Jim Belushi, and Lori Singer. Storyline of man in the wrong place at the wrong time, caught up in a CIA snafu of political corporate games and employee sabotage....all the while Hanks keeps his innocence playing the naive & humble musician. Great humor!

I am not a huge Tom Hanks fan, but this film is certainly my favourite that he has been in. It has a great supporting cast (Jim Belushi, Carrie Fischer, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, etc). There is quite a bit of subtle humour and it can take a few viewings to catch it all, but this is one I have watched over and over for years and still enjoy it.

Tom Hanks and supporting cast are terrific in this comedy. The story if fast-paced, humorous, droll at times and incredibly entertaining. If you like Tom Hanks (and who doesn't) you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. Buy this movie, it will become a favorite of your video library.
