One of the coolest things about the internet, that I'm continually discovering, is that you get the chance to check out movies that you might have missed out on or maybe even passed over the first time around.
Barely do I even remember the trailer of Club Paradise back in 1986, but because of Robin Williams and Adolph Cesar (who gave a truly outstanding and forever hauntingly Oscar worthy performance in A SOLDIER'S STORY), I bought this movie off of Amazon.com for like under 8 bucks or so with shipping.
I must say that this is the most enjoyable 8 bucks I've spent in a while...(and this is coming from a guy whose hemorrhaged thousands of dollars on child support payments)!
However, I did noticed that Robin Williams is kind of laid back this time around and has a soft kind of subtle charm in this movie but it still doesn't stop Williams from delivering some of the funniest one-liners that I've ever heard. What's really special, for me, about this film is that it's one of the last performances from the undeniably and extremely talented, Mr. Adolph Cesar(Mr. Gundy), who sadly passed away before this funny film even premiered in the theaters.
Without a doubt, though, Club Paradise has got a bunch of laugh out loud moments going for it! Sure, it could've been better and was a little slow in a few parts while the next joke or visual gag was making it's way around the corner of the silver screen, but I'll keep pulling this one out from my DVD collection from time to time because I love laughter and I'm a still a little kid at heart from the 1980's.
Oh, yeah!..Club Paradise most definitely has earned it's place in my collection of DVD movies!...
