A good movie that follows the traditional Greek comedy model of an outcast coming into mainstream society. It has a similar vibe to Clue with quick banter. Unlike many of Stallone's movies, this one does not require violence to entertain and his hamfisted delivery pairs well with a mobster by the name of Don Angelo "Snaps" Provolone.

I'll take this Sylvester Stallone over anything else he's done. Tim Curry and Marisa Tomei are also hilarious in this movie. It has a great deal of funny moments, but the plot is predictable and forgettable

Such a great tongue in cheek movie. Fun to watch the interactions between all the characters.

Un jour, des producteurs ont greenlighté un remake d'Oscar en remplaçant Louis de Funès par Sylvester Stallone. Ce jour-là, ces producteurs étaient en état de grâce. En effet, Sylvester Stallone, encore plus cabotin qu'à l'accoutumée, est absolument parfait dans cette nouvelle itération d'Oscar, située pendant la Prohibition et avec Chazz Palmintieri dans un rôle de géant bouffon à la Mario David (qui est remplacé par Tim Curry ici). Réalisée par John Landis, Oscar est une comédie burlesque particulièrement efficace, au rythme effréné et au langage délicieux qui enchaîne les rebondissements comme les perles et qui préfère créer de longues situations avec des payoffs plutôt que d'enchaîner les gags faciles toutes les deux scènes. Marisa Tomei et Peter Riegert sont vraiment très drôles.

I am not a fan of comedy, but this is one I could watch over and over. I don't know what it is about this movie, but it is one of my all time favorites, the critics have never been more wrong.

Has perhaps the best ending lines in any movie. A must watch.

I like this movie. the pace is good, the farce is captivating and Stallone is very good. I have no idea what the critics were watching, but then I hate Bladerunner 2049 so what do I know.

I love this movie, it's hilarious! I've watched it about 5 times now and have to say the cast was very, very talented.

This "comedy of errors" style movie reminds much of Oscar Wilde's style of comedy, the title might be a hint. Sly isn't the best comedian, however it is entertaining enough and delivers quite a few genuine laughs with the always charming and funny Marisa Tomei and the great Tim Curry. Good enough for a rainy sunday afternoon.

I love this movie and cast. East character is superbly acted and unique. The movie is rife with memorable lines that you will be quoting later. Sly does an excellent job and his comedic timing is quite good. Tim Curry is great as Mr. Pool. Many say this movie was terrible, but that being the case, I have found it quite enjoyable. If you haven't seen it, give it a watch.

A true light comedy and caricature of the gangster movies of the 30's, 40's and 50's. With a ridiculous cast!

This comedy is up there with Airplane and Police Squad. It's intended to be ridiculous, which is why most "serious" critics hate it, but if you want to have a good laugh out of nonsense, you'll like this flick.

My favorite movie of all time. The quick witted humor, way placed historical cues and lingo and wonderful linguistic hits. For an English teacher and an amateur historian this is a real treat and an underappreciated gem of cinematic comedy gold that is probably just too smart for the critics. Anyone that can't appreciate this is maladroit.

Funny film. Tim Curry runs away with it though. A Must-watch film that should be on Blu-ray.
