    HOW DID THIS MOVIE EVER FLOP?, July 6, 2001

    Lets see we have a funny plot. A top notch cast with old giants, (Kirk Douglas, Don Ameche) An “A” list star, (Stallone) an “A” list director, (John Landis) a fine supporting cast, (Chazz Palmintari, Marisa Tomei, Tim Curry) and several television favorites (Kirkwood Smith, Ken Howard, Yvonne De Carlo,[Who actually belongs in the old giants list]) a ton of sight and word gags and a movie that flows smoothly and constantly makes you laugh and somehow it flops at the box office and isn’t heard of? I don’t get it. It is another absolute RIOT. All the actors I’ve named (and quite a few I haven’t) just keep the whole thing roaring (Particularly Palmintari). How this movie remains ignored is beyond me. Even the basic plot of a gangster trying to go straight in a dishonest world works wonders! Why haven’t you seen this move? Why don’t you buy it now! You won’t regret it!

    A “Nicely Rounded” Movie, February 2, 2000

    OSCAR displays Stallone’s talent for portraying a comic role that is all too often overlooked for action movies. With an all-star cast to back Sly up, this movie easily floats well. A not-so-unique plot sometimes slows this movie down, but all-in-all, OSCAR is a pretty funny movie.
    Sly plays a big-time gangster who promises his dying father (cameo by Kirk Douglas) to go straight. This, however, proves difficult for our hero, with drawbacks such as a mixed up mix up of little black bags, a daughter who changes fiances three times before lunch, a bag-full of annoying visitors, and scandalling bankers and thugs.
    OSCAR’s cast includes the talents of Sylvester Stallone, Tim Curry (halarious role! ), Linda Gray, Joey Travolta, Ornella Muti, Peter Reigert, Yvonne De Carlo, Marisa Tomei (adorable little snotty girl), and Chazz Palminteri among many, many others.
    Although it’s out-of-print, it’s well worth the trouble to track down and see!
