Critic Reviews for Start The Revolution Without Me
The film flopped at the box office, but years later scored as a cult hit on video when Wilder's popularity grew.
Seems like a Mel Brooks farce, but it's a Yorkin! Pretty zany.
Audience Reviews for Start The Revolution Without Me
Television staples Norman Lear and Bud Yorkin (of All In The Family fame) produced/directed this tip of the hat to both swashbucklers of old and to the wild zeitgeist that was the late '60's/early '70's. Gene Wilder and Donald Sutherland play both the deadly but slightly inbred, upperclass Corsican Brothers, and their exact lookalikes, two goodhearted but dumb and cowardly peasants. The French Revolution is only moments away and the streets are swarming with malcontents, the king's court swarming with intrigue: whatever can happen next? A filmic shadow of those turbulent times (the 1970's, not 1789) now but still zany fun, think Saturday Night Live or early Woody Allen or Mel Brooks.
Looks like Mel Brooks' material, anyway Start The Revolution Without Me is terrific and unforgettble!. Fresh.
This movie may have a silly plot, but it's actually really hilarious, Sutherland and Wilder are great in this movie, and if you're a fan of either of them you'll like this movie. The story is zany, and a lot of fun. I really liked this movie.
