Critic Reviews for Pennies From Heaven
Audience Reviews for Pennies From Heaven
Pennies From Heaven I enjoyed watching this movie. It is filled with great music, serious issues, and comedy. This film ask how to support yourself or a family when there is no plan and how to make a way when one is desperate. I think one of the things that interesting was that this film goes into a lot of different environments and jobs to be able to keep the audiences attention such as a jail, a restaurant, an orphanage, and more. I found the Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby parts to this film very good. I was kept fully engaged when either one was on screen during this film. Bing Crosby does a lot from doing very little such as body or facial expressions to tell a lot. They try to put the girl in an orphanage in most of the film just to get to the end of the film where the orphanage does not desire to have her because she causes more trouble than she is worth to support. I loved the ending because it ends in an unexpected slap stick ending.
(****): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Well-acted and very entertaining.
This is a sweet movie, and I liked Crosby in it, but the other actors aren't so great. Plus, it's got a predictable romance. It could have been better.
