Terrible waste of Rodney Dangerfield's remaining comedic talents. Embarrassingly bad.

5 Wives - 5 Stars

"I don't know why Rodney Dangerfield's movie "My 5 Wives" did not receive a wide theatrical release, since it is his funniest film in years. The jokes start right from the beginning, when Rodney is in divorce court. "Every time I wanted sex, my wife left the room to give me privacy! The last time I had sex, I was arrested for assault with a dead weapon!", he tells his lawyer. Also appearing in the movie are John Byner, playing a crooked banker, Andrew Dice Clay, who plays a Mafia underboss and Jerry Stiller, playing a Mafia don who knew Rodney when they were both kids in the old neighborhood. As Rodney tells Jerry regarding his father, "In our neighborhood, he was the first one to start acupuncture - with an ice pick!" A memorable scene is when Rodney takes his 5 wives to Las Vegas. At first, they appear poolside wearing one piece bathing suits that were in style a hundred years ago. Rodney takes them clothes shopping. They return poolside wearing very skimpy bikinis, followed by Rodney in a speedo! The DVD includes deleted scenes, cast and crew information, and actors' interviews. The actresses who play his 5 wives are interviewed while they're wearing their bikinis. I respect that!"

"To Buy or Not to buy, will it be an asset to your DVD collection, or will you watch it once and forget it?Yes people its safe to say that since your here, you like Dangerfield's type of comedy. This film delivers fresh routines of Dangerfields trademark style, and although not a "big" budget film the likes of Ladybugs, Back To School and Easy Money...etc., it will still make you laugh. If your a fan of Dangerfield, this is a good purchase and you will enjoy it a couple times. Andrew Dice plays a Mafia underboss in the film, although his perfomance and jokes are nothing outstanding, its still a little funny looking at him. The writers could have done much more with his character, it is obvious his character wasnt written for him specifically or the director wanted to keep his performance second to Dangerfields.Very little cameo perfomances by other up and comming comics, so dont expect much. The film looks like a "Made for TV" movie and also looks like it was shot using video... possible to lower production costs.Overall if you like Dangerfield, youll like this movie."
No Oscar material here but one heck of a funny movie

"No Oscar material here but one heck of a funny movie.
Rodney Dangerfield has never been funnier! The plot is silly but very entertaining and captures to hold audience. Hey, when we want to see a comedy we want to see a comedy and this movie does it pretty well."
