Movie Reviews

Classic Robin Williams. A Movie Ahead of its Time!
Mark Higgins | Anchorage, Alaska | 11/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great movie with more funny one-liners than any ten recent comodies combined. Robin Williams is superb as is Peter O'Toole.

Beautifully set in Jamaica with a soundrack by Jimmy Cliff that's to die for.

This is a must own for fans of Williams, O'Toole, Cliff, or the beauty of the Carribean."
Vastly underrated

"This movie was a favorite of mine and my friends when it came out in the 80s. It is a silly comedy with some great comedic talents from the Second City troupe. The combination of Rick Moranis and Eugene Levy is hilarious as Barry and Barry, the desperate friends trying to find women who are even remotely attracted to them at the resort. They have some of the best lines. Andrea Martin is also extremely funny, and I can't help but laugh at her doing the limbo and trying to belt out soulful reggae while half drunk. Robin Williams has a more laid back routine in this movie, which is rare for a comedian that can't seem to have a sane conversation when he gives interviews. He is the main character and leaves more of the antics to the supporting cast, but he does a nice job. As others have said, the music in the movie is excellent and Jimmy Cliff provides a great soundtrack, supplemented by one great reggae cover by the Kinks, "Apeman", which I have since tried to find.

It's worth checking out for a good laugh. It is one of those movies that I remember fondly and can still laugh at because it doesn't take itself too seriously."
Just Plain Fun

"Hubby and I found Club Paradise by accident a number of years ago, and picked it up because we recognized the cast as actors we enjoyed, and we couldn't resist the setting. We have never regretted it!

We've watched Club Paradise many times, and love being able to get away to the island "in the ocean" somewhere, at the club with "the best beach on the island." Robin Williams is wryly humorous, trying frantically to keep the club out of the hands of developers, keep his guests happy and out of trouble, and keep his partner and staff from starting a revolution. The intertwined plot threads of the various guests may be a bit predictable, but they're well-played and full of laughs, thanks to the talents of the actors. The music is great.

And how could I not mention that Peter O'Toole steals every scene he's in? He alone would be worth getting this movie.

Classic art? No, it's not. An enjoyable way to spend an evening? Absolutely, a pleasure, and highly recommended. It's the kind of movie you enjoy watching over and over again.

I look forward to Club Paradise being released on DVD."
Give it to me on DVD PLEASE!!!

"The scene where Eugene Levy and Rick Moranis hit the beach is one of the funiest 5 minutes on film I've ever seen!This movie HAS TO be rereleased on DVD. Will somebody PLEASE tell the studio that if Power Ranger Movies can be on DVD, why not a cult classic like Club Paradise?!!!"
