The main criticism seems to be the nature of the relationship between Caine and Johnson; uncomfortable for some and in dubious taste. Well time for people to pull their heads out! Since when has good taste equalled good comedy? This is essentially a very funny romantic comedy with more laughs than Shakespeare or Austen.
Let me add to the criticisms:
The soundtrack is irritating (even in the 80s it seemed naff!).
The arrival in Rio may be a bit contrived, but does help generate the mood.
Brazillian women hardly ever go topless on the beach (remember this is a remake of a French film set on French beaches where this would be normal).
Michelle Johnson sometimes misses the feeling a bit.
The colours may be turned up too far for some!
Demi Moore is clearly uncomfortable about showing her breasts (not surprising with her cousin around!)
The outcome is predicatble.
On the positive side, the jokes are great and delivered with style and perfect timing. I still find myself laughing out loud all the time even after seeing it several times.
All the cast seem to be in the spirit of the place and the situation. Young Demi Moore shows promise as an actress and the older stars show their true professionalism.
The young men in it are a draw too - I'm told, which gives appeal beyond hetero males.
The colours and the print are stunning and guaranteed to cheer you up in the depths of winter.
As for Michelle Johnson; I must differ from the critics.Read more ›
The plot really comes down to Caine's dilemma: He's a man in his forties, who's wife has walked out, and who finds himself being chased by his best friend's daughter - a girl the same age as his daughter, and who happens to be every man's dream babe.
And so to the story: The story follows two couples (each comprising husband, wife, and teenage daughter) as their marriages fall apart. Michael Caine and Demi Moore (father and daughter #1), and Joseph Bologna and Michelle Johnson (father and daughter #2) head off for Rio while their wives carp from the sidelines. Once in Rio, Johnson reveals that she has a crush on Caine, and Caine has to decide whether to try rescuing his marriage, or give in to temptation and accept Johnson's amorous attention. For this dilemma to work on-screen, it is essential that the audience understands the temptation - hence Johnson. At the time she was a teenager armed with pretty face, coke-bottle body and an astounding set of breasts. Caine believes, probably rightly, that this is the last time in his life that he will bed such a woman, given that he is already more than twice her age. Will his head control his loins? - I think we can guess the answer.Read more ›
The story concerns two friends, onerecently devorced from his wife, the other separated. They head to Rio onholiday taking their nubile and far from innocent daughters along withthem.
Michael Caine stars as the bewildered Matthew, apart from his wife,struggling with his emotions and trying to fight off the attentions of hisfriends teenage daughter.
Michelle Johnston who played this charactershould have gone on to be a big star. She's sexy and funny in her pursuitof Matthew, not only an older man but her best friends Father.
Instead it was Demi Moore, who played Michael Caine's daughter, who wentonto to be an international star.
The film develops into a farce as Joseph Bologna, who plays the jealousfather and Caine's friend, asks him to investigate who's seeing hisdaughter. He therefore has to investigate himself.
The film is no'Singin' In The Rain' (made by the same Director Stanley Donen) but it isan enjoyable comedy typical of its type in the eighties.
There's some nudity, some beautiful locations and some actors who probablydon't put this film on their CV anymore. All this aside its anentertaining romp in rio.
Its a shame there's no commentary from Caine (Has he ever done one?),Moore or Johnston. It would also have been nice to have seen whateverhappened to Johnston and whether or not she regrets making the filmconsidering the negative impact it had on her career at the time.
Afun, frisky film. No great extras but at a good price. Bring a little ofthat Rio sunshine into your life.
