Audience Reviews for The Ritz

  • Jan 19, 2014
    On the run from his murderous brother-in-law Carmine(Jerry Stiller), Gaetano(Jack Weston) seeks refuge in the last place he would look for him, a gay bath house where Googie(Rita Moreno, fabulous in a scenery chewing performance) is singing that night. Abe(Dave King) at the front desk takes pity on Gaetano and cashes his check, thus allowing him entrance and to pay his cab driver. Now, all Gaetano has to do is stay one step ahead of Claude(Paul B. Price) who has a thing for plus-sized men. "The Ritz" is a silly, silly movie. If your idea of comedy like mine is Treat Williams speaking with a high squeaky voice, then you will certainly find this movie funny.(This is apparently not only Williams' first big movie role but also F. Murray Abraham's. And John Ratzenberger is around here somewhere.) While considering how far gay rights have come since this movie was made in 1976, this was also ironically a celebration of a more innocent era where before AIDS one could even joke about STD's, with the Ronald Reagan reference being eerily prescient. And I had always imagined bath houses as being dingy dives...

    A very funny comedy movie, with a great story and good actors. I really liked it.

    Very much a time capsule of a bygone era, everybody is enjoyably over the top but any time Rita Moreno shows up she blows everyone else off the screen in a performance of such reckless, hilarious abandon its a joy to behold.
