Audience Reviews for Gable and Lombard

  • Oct 03, 2010
    Oh, I so wanted to like this movie about my favorite Hollywood couple. Brolin does a good impersonation of Gable, but lacks his charisma. Clayburgh was just so wrong for the role of Lombard, that I don't even know where to begin; so I won't. This was supposed to be a story about one of the greatest love affairs, and it fails to do it justice. The biggest disappointment lies in the storytelling itself. Something tells me that the Gable and Lombard story would be interesting enough without dramatizing it.
