Lucille Ball and Bob Hope are amazing in this!
***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***
Worth watching just to see 1963 fashion, decore , hairstyles , womans makeup, motor cars, a road trip back in time
i was a bit disappointed in this movie, and initially i expected it to be from a slightly earlier era. early-lucille ball moves are awesome, and she is stunning, and quite a good actress
this movie had a fairly thin plot, but what was most distracting was that lucy clearly was pregnant during filming, although an early scene at home with hope, her and the son, had them discussing why lucy still hadn't gotten pregnant (competition between 'angie' & 'ivy'). in that very scene, it was clear that lucy was wearing early-60's early-term maternity clothes. and for the next couple of scenes, but then suddenly, she's in a sleek dress .... later on she's clearly further advanced and clearly in maternity clothes (all the other women around her are in stylish, fitted dresses with tiny fitted jackets, but she's wearing a huge, swingy maternity ensemble.
maybe if the plot had been more intriguing or maybe if one or both of hope/ball had not phoned it in, lucy's maternal status would not have felt so prominent.
A interesting film. Ball and Hope's final film together. Had funny moments but overall could have been better.
Bland comedy/drama about nasty theater critic Bob Hope, who's only happy when he's trashing the latest Broadway sensation, has to contend with his wife, Lucille Ball, deciding she wants to become a playwright. Will Bob write a nasty review of his wife's play? Will Bob write a gushing review? I'm not sure there's any real suspense what actually happens, but the only reason to watch this film is for Hope and Ball, who are good, but the jokes are sadly not all that funny. It also doesn't help that the film lacks the rapid pace of Hope's better comedies. Overall, "Critic's Choice" features two brilliant comedians in a less than brilliant comedy. FUN FACT: This film was based on a play by Ira Levin, who's best known as the author of "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Stepford Wives."
too bad lucy always has 2 play 2nd fiddle cos she can toss em out with the best of them!
While it falls flat on it's face more often than not, it has it's charms. The plot gives itself away, all the physical comedy gags are broad and bland, the dialogue is mostly laughable and very 60s. But Hope and Ball have electric chemistry, their scenes make this a must-see, even if you only see it once.
I loved watching Lucille Ball with Bob Hope! It was a great movie.
Despite making four films together, Ball and Hope have absolutely no chemistry in this one. Yet when the material is this sophisticated and they are so appealing separately, it hardly matters.
