Critic Reviews for Tough Guys Don't Dance
Neither thrilling nor horrific, the camera, plotting, dialogue and atmosphere are uniformly unconvincing: a conservatoire of false notes.
Not the high point of the Mailer career, but it's a small, entertaining part of it.
Hard to classify; at times you laugh raucously at what's up on the screen; at others you stare dumbly, in stunned amazement.
What is strange is that Tough Guys Don't Dance leaves me with such vivid memories of its times and places, its feelings and weathers, and yet leaves me so completely indifferent to its plot. Watching the film, I laughed a good deal.
Norman Mailer's best film, adapted from his worst novel, shows a surprising amount of cinematic savvy and style.
Audience Reviews for Tough Guys Don't Dance
Not the best story in the world or acting for that matter. But one scene with [url="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0641939/"][u][color=#000080]Ryan O'Neal[/u][/color][/url] in this movie will have you hitting the rewind button more then you ever have in your life. This is the funniest scene I have seen in a movie this year and I have seen the Punisher War Zone. The jury is still out on if the director wanted this to be a drama or a comedy. In any case, Tough Guys Don't Dance is worth checking out. It will have you saying "oh god, oh man".
Wings Hauser is God. The acting in this movie is hilarious. I mean the story is so crazy and so is everything else. It makes no sense and I do not think it is meant to. Just watch it you will never forget it which might be a bad thing.
