One of the greatest films from Jamaica
Mekisha Hugh Hampton | Jamaica, The Bronx and now in Alabama | 09/15/2005

"The first time I saw Smile Orange I was 10 years old (I'm 30 now), my mother and I brought it from our local Jamaican record shop. It was the funniest thing I had ever seen. The cast is wonderful and I am sure you will find Ceril the bus boy sweet and funny...just remember "Plate" and you will see what I am talking about. Buy this movie and let Ringo, Joe and Ceril take you on a wild ride!"
You don't need to know patois to watch this movie

"This was made in the 1970s but it can still make me laugh even now. Taking the mickey out of the tourist industry and how Jamaican men are happily seduced by White women and Jamaican girls are desperate to get over to America and will sleep with American tourists in order to realize their dream you are treated to a funny, sardonic look at beach life on the golden sands of the Jamaican coast.

This is a hysterically funny film with Carl Bradshaw playing the cheeky conman Ringo who goes to work in a hotel and gets up to all sorts of tricks, in a bid to avoid his angry wife and the hotel manager who lives for respectability but isn't averse to being a secret letch.

Look out for the scene where the young Bus boy is seduced by an older American Woman, you will bust a gut laughing,the rolling in poison ivy scene where Ringo makes it clear to a girl he has picked up, if she don't put out, she will end walking to town, and the most memorable scene of all, the drowning tourist where Ringo accidentally becomes a hero, along with the angry ugly wife who turns up and demands to see her wayward husband, the dastardly but very charming Ringo himself.

A great soundtrack, that sums up the film which lampoons society in a way in which only a 1970s film could do.

A gem of a film that has aged disgracefully. Wonderful."
Nostalgic pleasure!

"I love Smile Orange! This movie always makes me laugh and takes me back to my adolescent days in late 70's Jamaica. The movie has a weak plot, farcical situations and cliche characters - but I still love it! Oscar-worthy it was not. But it's full of slapstick humor and belly-busting laughs! I give it 2 thumbs up just for the nostalgic element. Carl Bradshaw is always hilarious."
