Audience Reviews for Oscar

    I must admit I wasn't over keen on watching this after some poor reviews and the fact that it's a comedy film with Stallone but I must say I enjoyed it more than I should have, After a slow start the film kicks in with a story that leads into another story and another etc that are all interfering with Stallones day, It's not a laugh out loud comedy more of a gangsta family problem comedy, Stallone does well in his part and carries the film, As for the name of the film well he's not in it till the end and I don't know why they landed on Oscar as the title, It's clever and confusing in places, It's not as bad as you might think.

    Hey...he's the Italian Stallion. The movie started out relly boring...but then the plot started getting complicated...and that was fun...the movie has a couple of fun jokes but it barey qualifies as a comedy...still fun though
