Getting Away with Murder Reviews
Dan Aykroyd does a fantastic job (in comparison with Ghostbusters, that is) as the neurotic Jack Lambert, and Jack Lemmon is charming as always. The storyline is a bit predictable, but strangely original.
Basically, if you like black comedies, you should enjoy this.
Written and Directed by Harvey Miller.
Rated [b]R[/b] (for some sexual situations).
Running time approximately 1 hour 31 minutes.
Dreadful and offensive only begin to describe the inescapably repugnant experience of watching [i]Getting Away with Murder[/i]. The cast is so darned good, but nothing (not, not a single bloody thing) could ever have redeemed this trash from its undying status as one of the worst comedies ever made. I hate this movie. I've seen it once, and it was a long time ago, but I still stand offended. Bleh. [b]* (out of ****) D[/b]
