Movie Reviews

Twinky dink
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 03/21/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"TWINKY is also marketed under an aka of "Lola." Note that none of these small label DVD outfits has yet to produce a decent dub of this picture.


After two previous films and a lengthy career directing episodes of such TV classics as GILLIGAN'S ISLAND and THE BANANA SPLITS, Richard Donner here helmed a top-flight cast in one of his now most forgotten works.

In an Italian production filmed in Scotland, London and NYC, Bronson is a middle-aged American adult novelist romanced by a London teenager, a relationship that eventually brings them to the altar. Thus, after they got married in a fever, the fire went out and they've been talkin' 'bout Jackson. Though not exactly a Lee Hazlewood lyric, in the words of 10CC's "Don't Hang Up," it's "marriage on the rocks" time.

Here, the child-woman seduces the writer against his and her parents' better judgment. They wed, move to New York and soon the reality of two very different lives hits home. In an ironic twist, despite reservations about how a divorce might unbalance his young wife, SHE'S the one with "Leavin' on (her) Mind" (OK, no more song references!). After a chalkboard "tata!" from the flighty girl, it's back to Jolly Old for L-O-L-A (I lied, so sue me!).

Leg men will love the many mini-skirts on display here, but as romantic comedies go this curio is very slight. (Watch for airport cameo from Mrs. Bronson, Jill Ireland.)


Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 imdb viewer poll rating.
