A frenetically unfunny and charmless movie.
What's fresh about Ramis and Doyle-Murray's brand of comedy is that they're not one-liner wordsmiths, they're social satirists. They find humor in the subversion of a stable social community.
The whole, crowded thing begins to resemble a low-brow Nashville.
There certainly is a lot of talent involved in Club Paradise... But most often, the level of humor is rather like that of those entertainments put on by summer campers for their own amusement.
There are enough funny skits in Club Paradise to make for a good hour of SCTV, where most of the cast is from, but too few to keep this Club Med satire afloat for 104 minutes.
The movie is painless, and everybody associated with it is good company, but considering the obvious effort and the expense that went into it, the result should have been much, much better.
This is a case where the actors are only as good as the script, which isn`t saying much. It`s not long into Club Paradise when you may feel the urge to get out.
The unchanneled energy of Robin Williams can't redeem this messy yarn.
Even Williams's quick-fire routines fail to raise many laughs.
The movie is a succession of shticks -- which, when they succeed, are very funny. Unfortunately, not all of them succeed.
Director Harold Ramis, who co-wrote the film with Brian Doyle-Murray, never stoops for an easy laugh. He seems capable, however, of making a movie with more momentum than this.
Club Paradise has a few good running gags, but it isn't everything that the brochures crack it up to be.
Funny cast, bad movie.
Yes, this movie has a ton of great stars, but what're they doing in this movie? Not much. The story is predictable and sometimes boring. Overall, it's just okay.
A couple of funny moments, but it's real hit or miss. I will however be adding "drug crazed nipple factory" to my vocabulary.
Another pointless Robin Williams vehicle that feels like an overlong and rather weak sitcom witha parade of uninteresting guest stars. Dull.
