Audience Reviews for Good Morning & Goodbye
"Good Morning...and Goodbye" just isn't fun like most Russ Meyer films. The women are such relentless shrews that one can hardly bear their company. The plot is also thin, and really is about nothing beyond who's screwing who.
"Good Morning" lacks the droll "patriotic" quality found in many Meyer projects, though its polished musical score (imagine a '60s detective show) may be the most commendable element. It does have the overlong, narrated introduction and another of those peculiar, disconnected "goddesses" whom Meyer is so fond of inserting. This time, she manages to become a story element, eventually serving as inspiration for the downtrodden male lead (Stuart Lancaster, yet again).
The cast's other jigglers are brunette Alaina Capri (who also appeared in "Common Law Cabin") and blond Karen Ciral.
Lots of embarrassing, dated lingo in the script: "cats," "my old man," "swinging," "digging," "heavy," "making the scene" and more. And of course, every other line is a leering double-entendre. "You read the profit-and-loss statement like a vulture and you play the stock market like a fox," snarls Capri to the impotent Lancaster. "But you store your nuts away like a squirrel."
This may be the only film I've seen besides "Eastern Promises" where a male character has a nude fight scene.
Otherwise, Flixster's above synopsis tells you all you need to know.
