Movie Reviews

Bittersweet gem
Matthew Forke | Washington, DC United States | 04/26/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beautiful sleeper of a film featuring two excellent leading performances and fine photography of Dublin. Margot Kidder and Gene Wilder make an offbeat pair and work very well together. Kidder is stunningly beautiful in her first leading role, almost ten years before her success as Lois Lane. Wilder is totally believable as Quackser -- watch this movie after "Young Frankenstein" and you'll see the enormous range of which this actor is capable. Viewers expecting Mel Brooks-type humor will be disappointed -- "Quackser"'s humor grows from the differences between the two lovers' backgrounds. Warm, simple and sad, "Quackser" also delivers a gentle message about nonconformity. A highly original love story worth adding to your collection."
This film is a must for dubliners

"The previous Amazon reviewers have given this five stars. QUACKSER FORTUNE is not one of the greatest movies of all time, and not one of the near-greatest. But it's a solid film, worth seeing. The two main characters are three-dimensional, for a change. Both Kidder and Wilder are wonderful in their roles. The picture drags too much; some good editing would have helped. Also there is a bit too much of -- how can I say it? -- reverse condescension. The Irish are a bit "quaint," which endears them to American audiences, I suppose, and also supplies a bit of distance. If this film were set in the US, we'd see two rather flaky people -- a do-it-alone selfish Wilder, and a silly college student Kidder. So it wouldn't work here. But set in Dublin, the trick is pulled off. Bottom line: a solid three-star film, each star standing for "pleasant.""
Gene Wilder At His Irish Best!!

"Quakser Fortune(Gene Wilder)is a somewhat eccentric,uneducated humble,fertilizer merchant in Dublin Ireland when a rich,sophisicated American visitor Zazel Pierce(Margot Kidder)becomes fascinated by him when they first connect,their different lifestyles become irrelevant but they later grow tired of each other especially by Zazel's snobbish friends.Quakser then retreats to his old job of gathering horse manure to sell as fertilizer.When his cousin in the Bronx dies he leaves a small fortune for Quakser that changes his livelihood forever.This is quite an interesting,offbeat comedy/drama with Gene Wilder at his Irish best!!"
