Misbehaviour Reviews

  • Dec 24, 2020

    A movie with a stellar cast and based around such a great story could only be commandeered by a radical left group of disillusioned man haters in Hollywood. If the filmmakers had focused more on racial equality during the time period and the significanceof the events the film depicts, it could have had such a lasting impact with such a talented cast. Unfortunately, instead, it was crafted into a tool for a misguided cult to take shots at a fictional 21st century Civil rights issue known as the patriarchal society. What a colossal disappointment.

    'Misbehaviour' tells three different stories intermingled. The centerpiece is the 1970 Miss World competition and just about everything offshoots from that. Bob Hope loves women and the women's liberation movement loves women's rights. Greg Kinnear portrays Hope. Well sometimes he does. Other times he's just himself with some distracting makeup. While I didn't know anything about this story, it's safe yet fine. It's not deep and eager to make you feel good, so much so, it takes away from what in my opinion the film should have been about. Also, there's a lot of filler here. Can't anyone write a movie for a big studio? A person of color winning is almost glossed over, which may have been the goal, but it didn't work for me. Final Score: 5.0/10

    Misbehaviour is a solidly executed —- albeit formulaic —- retelling of a grossly under-explored part of our history, and boasts enough spectacle and feel-good moments to stay watchable —— even compelling thanks to the strength of its powerhouse female cast. Though unlike the strong women at its centre, it's a shame that those behind the camera quite often lack the strength to reach below the subject's sensationalistic surface. Iroh's grade: C

    An important moment in social justice. Every step is important in making the world more fair and just and this movie does a great job of telling the story of one of the steps.

    Predictable and not funny.

    Misbehavior had all the potential to be a brilliant female empowering biopic but it settled for being a dramady instead. Still there's a lot to admire and enjoy in its talented cast and presentation of a crucial moment in women's liberation.

    Misbehavior fails to be funny, and some of the acting is very bad.

    Fantastic cast and the movie was unexpectedly amazing. Really enjoyed the performances of Gugu Mbatha Raw and Keeley Hawes. Definitely a great family movie that shouldn't be missed. Great job!

    A well told important story. Good performances and balances taking a viewpoint with being informative very well.

    El argumento, obviamente basado en los sucesos reales, da para tratar temas importantes más allá de la guerra de sexos y plantea diferentes puntos de vistas, lo cual la hace bastante más didáctica. Por otro lado los temas no estan tratados muy a profunidad, pero puede ser una buena forma de iniciar una conversación al respecto. Lo mejor de todo es el gran y esplendido casting.
