Movie Info

When the iron-fisted ruler of a small African nation dies, his top aide, Roberto Strausmann (Raul Julia), will do anything to avoid a regime change, so he recruits struggling film actor Jack Noah (Richard Dreyfuss) to pose as the deceased political leader. Jack looks just like the man he's portraying, and, with Strausmann's expert instruction, he successfully fools the world. But as Jack falls for ravishing humanitarian Madonna Mendez (Sonia Braga), he decides to use his influence for good.

Audience Reviews for Moon Over Parador

  • Jan 18, 2013
    Raul Julia was such a great actor! So, it is great to see some of his work, that I had not yet seen. The movie is all kinds of over-the-top and goofy. But, in that manic and fun way that I enjoy so much. Richard Dreyfuss is fantastic as he takes on several roles and he does pretty well. But, for me this is Raul Julia's movie. He played such a great bad-guy, I never get tired of watching his performances.

    No, Parador isn't a real country, but that just means that this could be any country. The story is only somewhat realistic, but it's very funny, and entertaining. I really liked it.

    Great movie! Sonia Braga ultimately shines!

    Mildly amusing comedy that's a cross between Bananas and Dave. Dreyfus is likeable enough, but it lacks bite and invariably falls back on weak farce and slapstick. OK though.
