The movie has an engaging surface, but it's all surface -- it's like watching an outsize TV.
Dillon does a good job in his fullest, least narcissistic characterization to date.
The performances compensate, with Dillon turning in a light and touching portrait of confused ambitions.
Dillon is a revelation in this movie.
Even if The Flamingo Kid comes out of sit-com country, the character and the performance effortlessly rise above their origins.
Professionally made, quite entertaining, and disappointingly hollow.
As coming-of-age stories go, this one is an underrated treasure with Dillon and Crenna doing fantastic work.
Winning comedy about a have-not among the haves.
The Flamingo Kid is one of those rare films that follows a traditional method of coming-of-age storytelling and then shakes it up by not dealing us mere caricatures and stereotypes.
The Sixties setting seems a shade gratuitous and its attitude to easy money is ambiguous, but the characters are well drawn and the story is sensitively handled.
I don't know if it's because I'm not a fan of Dillon like some other people who reviewed this film, but I didn't think his performance was so great. I just couldn't get into this movie, and found it boring.
This movie is funny,and cute,and Matt Dillion is so ADORABLE!!!
