"This could have been a nice little movie; it almost is. The plot is blissfully uncomplicated, much like a Marx Brother's film, but even at his oldest, Groucho never seemed as old as Rodney does in this DVD. The idea of going to the ends of the earth to win the love of your lady is timeless. But with a thirty-something leading lady and an eighty-something leading man, searching for your Viagara and your teeth would seem like a more realistic quest. I'm especially disappointed that there were no memorable "Rodney lines" like in Caddy Shack - "Oh that's the worst looking hat I ever saw ... looks good on YOU though." A sweethearted, non-wise cracking Rodney didn't work for me. Honestly, I feel bad not loving this movie. I am a Rodney fan - have all of his records (yup, on vinyl), DVDs and CDs too. I have seen him live and use his lines all day long - "I went to the doctor, I said doc, when I wake up and I look in the mirror, I wanna throw up, what's wrong with me? he said, I don't know, but your eyesight's perfect!" But in this film he was mis-cast. Picture Billy Crystal in the lead and you know what I mean. Anyway, if you love Rodney, maybe you shouldn't see this movie. It's just too painful. I had to go watch Caddy Shack a couple of times to get over it.
I originally wrote this review back in June of 2004 - Rodney was still with us and making those around him laugh. He's gone and there will never be another,"

"Rodney Dangerfield in a blushing romantic comedy? It worked for me! Rodney is lovable as Lupo and the storyline is sweet and clever. I was charmed and so was my boyfriend who is a die-hard fan of Robert Davi who's also in the movie. Don't see it unless you have a jug of wine on hand. You'll see why as the story unfolds. The wedding scene is the best but I don't want to give it all away."
Another classic from Rodney!

"Well, today was the release date for the movie to come out on DVD. Originally, it was supposed to be released a few months ago, but the release date was pushed back. It was well worth the wait!Rodney's funniest movies to date have been "Easy Money," "Meet Wally Sparks," and "My 5 Wives."This new movie has a totally different style than the movies that I just mentioned, but it's still great.Rodney's still the king of comedy. I can't wait until his next movie, "Back By Midnight," comes out!"
Much Better Than I Expected!!!

"Once again, I read the reviews on-line before purchasing a movie and end up enjoying the movie much more than I expected to. "The 4th Tenor" is not like one of Rodney Dangerfield's older movies, all which I have seen by the way, and shouldn't be compared to any of them. But this happens to be a nice change up for him.
It was a very cute and well made movie and there's hardly any sign of the 'brawdy' Rodney for previous movies, although many of the jokes are pretty hilarious! It made me appreciate and respect the late great Rodney even more than I already do!
Also, the supporting cast was very funny also! When was the last time you've seen Charlie Fletcher ('Who Framed Roger Rabbit', and tv show 'Freddie') take on a more supporting role? Or seen 'all around' tough ass Robert Davi ('Profiler' and 'License To Kill') dive for cover in a tub full of water and rose petals?
If you have a quite Saturday with nothing to do, rent or purchase "The 4th Tenor". You won't be disappointed."
