Movie, movie are actually two films of very different themes. If the first one is good, the second is very good. Stanley Donen is a consummate specialist of the music remains patent with the second story the beauties of Baxter, which makes an exercise in vibrant rhythm that I, at least, has left me excited, I have moved the feet in the armchair and I am excited when dies Baxter of the rare disease that has called Spencer and that affects only people from the show. The first part or movie is hands of dynamite and is a homage to the classic boxing tapes. Harry Hamlin is Joe Popchick, a young man who goes for lawyer but before an illness of his sister in the eyes, decided to get into boxing to afford an operation that can cure it. Blinded with a cabaret dancer bundled with a kind of gangster who becomes his concerned manager, you will make mistakes that justified after returning with his girlfriend always. The nexus of both films is George C. Scott who is out in his interpretation, first of Popchick legal boxing trainer and then by Baxter on a paper, say that unforgettable.
If gloves in the first movie, the second is booties Baxter. And on both ends up dying surrounded by people who want him, as a beloved father. In fact, thats the image that transmits throughout the film, the good father. Coach of Baxter and boxing gloves businessman of musicals have many things in common but which predominates is the kindness and intelligence. Women are great: the main star of the show of the beauties of Baxter, the young girl that you will end up replacing, the girlfriend of Boxer, in the end, all. And musical numbers what to say!, dazzling, not forgetting the accounting officer on the piano or the closing of the show successful at the end of the second Movie. In short: magnificent Stanley Donen film in 1978, this fan of Fred Astaire with dynamite in the body and legs, as demonstrated when handed you the honorary Oscar to his career in 1998 and began singing Cheek to Cheek and dancing tap dance. Formidable.
