HASH(0x9cadee70) out of 5 stars Wild, full of energy, melodramatic and comic. 7 Mar. 2011
By thedre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Just get this. Vincent Minnelli directed this handsome production that seems to be completely shot in Rome, and also Cinecitta studios, (one of the settings). Kirk Douglas and Ed G. Robinson are the big stars in this. Both Hollywood people, one a director, and the other an oscar winning actor both on the verge of their own personal demises. A chance comes for both of them that brings them together, while you get to hang with them on and off sets with George Hamilton and various stunning Italian beauties. Once this movie gets it's motor going, it's going to knock you over. I don't want to reveal the end, or really, the big scenes near the end, but I will say that now I see where Oliver Stone got his ideas for the fantasy sequences in Natural Born Killers and Rodriquez got his visual style for the car sequences in Sin City. Cyd Charisse plays a real succubus, (if I've spelled that right)...with more danger than Lena Horne in her hottest scenes...and that's saying something. Both gals seem to be equal in their abilities in flashing dazzling, dangerous teeth. Technicolor looks extravagant in this film, and so does Rome at night. You care for the lead, Kirk, and don't want some downtempo melodrama to eat him alive, which seems to be always lurking around the corner..but that's the great trick of this film...it puts you on edge and then delivers goods you never expected. When it's over, you've been on a wild ride. You might also dig Kirk's Maserati convertible too...or Clare Trevor, who gets to have lots of fun tearing up the scenery. And while you're at it, get a front projector so you can watch these astonishing films from this period on a 72 inch screen. You'lll never look back. (The other Minelli film from this time is now out...The Cobweb. Just watched that...what a trip.

HASH(0x9cd951d4) out of 5 stars OVER THE TOP ORGY IN ROME! 21 April 2011
By Michael C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Che bella citta Roma! Vincent Minnelli's "Two Weeks In Another Town" is pure glamour, trash, camp and Hollywood glitz. In other words it is great fun. Don't go into it expecting anything more than over the top soap opera with the suds on overflow and you won't be disappointed.
Rome takes center stage in the film and is shown in all its "La Dolce Vita" glory of 1962. So much was happening there at this time. The birth of the paparazzi, the filming of "Cleopatra" and the international "Jet Set" had just landed in Rome to make it the fun capital of the world. The film captures all of this with high gloss and a tip of the fedora to Fellini who had first shown a light on the goings on along the Via Veneto a few years earlier.
Kirk Douglas plays a down and out movie star just released from a mental institution / rehab center when he is invited to fly to Rome by his old director and ex friend Edward G. Robinson to take a small comeback part in his epic being filmed at the famed Cinecitta Studios. Well I don't want to spoil the fun so all I will say is that there are plenty of gorgeous Italians running amok and lots of fabulous jewels bedecking Cyd Charisse. Tons of locations throughout the Eternal City and even an orgy! But the highlight of the film is the climactic scenic drive through the streets of Rome that Douglas takes Miss Charisse on after the orgy. That drive has to be seen to be believed! Words fail me at the sheer joy of this over wrought fun fest.
Trust me, it isn't anywhere near the brilliance of "The Bad and The Beautiful" of which it is a kind of follow up on, But it is beautifully bad in the very best way.
The DVD says remastered. But don't expect Blu-ray quality, it is fine nothing spectacular in it's re-mastering. But the color is good and the picture is clear.
I say, go ahead and take the plunge in this Fontana di Trevi of a movie.

HASH(0x9cd950d8) out of 5 stars A double-cream Brie movie. 30 April 2014
By Miles D. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Vincente Minnelli's "Two Weeks in Another Town" is pure cinematic cheese, but cheese of an exalted kind--sort of a cinematic double-cream Brie. Minnelli, screenwriter Charles Schnee and producer John Houseman (yes, THAT John Houseman) frame "Two Weeks in Another Town" as a followup, though not a sequel, to their previous Hollywood soap opera, "The Bad and the Beautiful," which also starred Kirk Douglas. Here, Douglas plays a washed-up alcoholic actor who flies to Rome on the promise of two weeks of work from an old director frenemy (Edward G. Robinson). From there, Douglas is forced to deal with his much-hated, much-lusted-after ex-wife (Cyd Charisse), Robinson's drunken harpy wife (Claire Trevor), a self-pitying baby of a young leading man (George Hamilton), and many other viperish types. But there is still time for Douglas and Robinson to screen their previous big hit ("The Bad and the Beautiful," of course).

"Two Weeks in Another Town" is garish even by early-Sixties soap-opera standards, and wildly overacted in the bargain (especially by Trevor, Charisse and Hamilton). But Minnelli's direction is expert, and Schnee's runaway-freight-train style of storytelling keeps you watching, no matter how much you hate yourself for it. The film probably deserves a rating of between three-and-a-half and three-and-three-quarters stars out of five, and I don't mind bumping it up to four.

HASH(0x9cd06030) out of 5 stars Bad & Beautiful 11 Oct. 2015
By NoirNation - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Here's a case where star power alone is not enough to salvage a weak
script and erratic direction. Remarkably, this near-mess features the same
creative team that put together the outstanding Hollywood saga The Bad And
The Beautiful. Here, people are bad and beautiful enough, but the writing is
clumsy and the directing pretty close to awful. The overacting borders on
inane, most notably Claire Trevor, in an admittedly thankless role. Even the
always brilliant Kirk Douglas can't emerge unscathed. And yet, the great Italy
locations and backstabbing nonsense manage to entertain despite the excesses.
I guess it's the magic of Hollywood after all. And that's what it's all about.
