Audience Reviews for God's Little Acre

robert ryan has one of his best roles here and it's entertaining in a debauched southern gothic way but it's way too long

Strange comedy/drama about a man greedy for gold. It has some salacious scenes for its time, including Ginger from Gilligan's Island looking gorgeous and teasing men while she takes a bath outside (really now!). The only time I've ever heard a guy wail and cry "I lost my albino!". Yeah, weird. Also, a badass black man who talks like Boomhauer on King of the Hill who says "Just cuz I'm black don't mean I can sing minstrel tunes!". LOL. (Take into consideration the date, 1958). Good one to catch on TCM sometime if you're into the oldies.

Sorry to say it, but this one was really bad. There are way too many sub plots that aren't well developed to begin with, and when we only get to follow each character for a short period of time, it becomes even less captivating. Sleeping pill.
